Chocolate Protein Pancakes…Round 2

You might remember a few weeks ago I attempted chocolate protein pancakes….but then decided to go with french toast. That actually turned out pretty good. Today, I tried pancakes again…but used a recipe that didn’t require cottage cheese. As you can see, I am bound and determined to make protein pancakes that are actually edible!! The pictures from recipes always make them look like your mom’s homemade pancakes…the taste…is more like chocolate flavored cardboard.

I found a recipe on The Fitnessista’s website. I made a couple changes. Here’s the recipe I used:

  • 1 1/2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 2 T of wheat flour
  • 3/4 t baking powder
  • 1/3 t cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract

First, I whisked together the dry ingredients to ensure there were no lumps. Especially no lumps of protein powder (ew).

When it was thoroughly mixed, I added the wet ingredients and whisked again until it was lump free.

Time to make the pancakes! I heated up some Smart Balance on a skillet  and poured the mixture onto the skillet.

looks like a pancake...

Once the pancakes were done, I topped it with half a banana, a little almond butter, and a little sugar free syrup.

These turned out to be pretty good. I love them with the almond butter, it definitely adds good flavor.

A warning for everyone on these: they do not taste like pancakes you’d find at a diner. The taste does reflect the protein powder that’s added to them. The protein powder also changes the texture a bit. I don’t mind that…so, if you think you’d like that, give them a try! It’s a nice, different way to get your protein powder fix.
