Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

Ok the recipe calls for oats, coconut, spices and all things nice but if you’re anything like me, the word chocolate usually equals food porn ! These pancakes won’t let you down. The recipe makes 12 – eyes bigger than tummy moment – I got through 3 and I gave up !! So very filling, chocolate, protein pancakes.

You will need the following ingredients:

2 Ripe Bananas, plus a few slices for serving

2 Eggs (or 3 Tablespoons chia mixed with 9 Tablespoons water)

1 Cup Oats

Flour mix: I make a container of this ahead of time, so when I make pancakes, which is usually once a week, it’s there & ready for me. For this recipe you need, 1/2 Cup Almond Flour, 1/2 Cup Buckwheat Flour, 1/4 Cup Corn Starch.

2 Scoops Protein Powder

1/2 Cup Coconut

1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips (plus a few more for serving)

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

2 Tablespoons Flaxseed

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

2 Tablespoons Almond Butter or Nut Butter of your choice

2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted

1-2 Cups Almond/Oat Milk, keep adding until you reach the right consistency

Himalayan Rock Salt, just a pinch

Maple Syrup for serving

In a blender, add the banana and eggs/chia and blend until well combined. I like to add 1 cup of oat milk here and give the mixture a blitz, then add the dry ingredients, oats, flour mix, protein powder, coconut, chocolate chips, baking powder, flaxseed, coconut oil, almond butter, vanilla extract, salt and another 1/2 cup of almond milk. Blend until well combined and add more almond milk until it reaches the desired consistency.

Oil the pan, place over a medium heat and once the pan is ready, scoop 1/4 cup portions into it. Cook the pancakes until golden brown.

Serve on their own (yes they are delicious plain) or slice up a banana, sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top and drizzle with maple syrup.
