Chocolate Protein Pancakes

I created this recipe on the spot by experimenting with a few ingredients and it turned out quite well which is why I thought I’d share my simple, very easy recipe which you could make in minutes! It has a subtle sweetness, is fluffy and very filling! By only using a few ingredients and a few minutes of your day, you will have these yummy pancakes ready on your plate to eat. I like to make this if I do not have alot of time, want to make something very quickly, or if I am feeling a bit lazy!

With the added protein this is also a good protein boost for first thing in the morning for breakfast or after a workout…or to be honest, for any time of day really! The pancakes in the pictures may look plain and simple, but believe me, you will get a satisfying taste of the infused chocolate flavour, and the cacao nibs give it that extra chocolatey crunch!

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 150g oat flour (I mill my oats into flour). In this recipe I use Holland & Barrett 100% Organic Jumbo Oats
  • 25g chocolate protein powder (any chocolate protein powder is fine to use, in this recipe I use the Tropeaka Lean Protein Powder in Chocolate (or if you do not have/do not want to use protein powder then you can use cacao powder instead)
  • 10g cacao nibs – in this recipe I use the My Protein Organic Raw Cacao Nibs
  • 20g chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150ml almond milk (Or any nut milk/dairy milk)
  • Coconut oil for greasing the pan (optional)

 

Method

  1. Mash the banana in a mixing bowl until runny
  2. Add the eggs then mix with the mashed banana
  3. Add all of the remaining ingredients into the bowl and mix altogether until you have a runny consistency
  4. Grease a frying pan with just a little bit of coconut oil and turn on a medium heat (I do not use any oil if I am using a non stick pan)
  5. Pour the mix in a 1/4 measuring cup until it is full then pour out into the pan which should give a perfect pancake size, then keep filling the measuring cup with the mix and pouring into the pan until all of the mix has been used
  6. Cook in the pan for approx 3 minutes on each side of the pancake or until each side turns a golden brown colour
  7. Toppings! I will leave this for you to decide. You can use any toppings you like! I usually like to top/spread almond butter, but you can use any nut butter, spread, fruits, nuts or/and cinnamon
