Chocolate, Berry & Pecan Protein Pancakes

image

Protein pancakes are a great way to have your protein powder after a workout or just have them for brunch or afternoon tea 😉 However or whenever you have them, they are a delicious alternative to regular pancakes.

By adding raw cacao powder for the chocolate taste you are also adding a superfood – YAY!

This is the recipe I tried and it was lovely but you can adapt the ingredients to suit your tastes 🙂

Ingredients

  • Vanilla Protein powder (or use chocolate) – 1 scoop pp
  • Cacao powder – 1 tsp
  • Avocado – 1/2 large one or 1 small one pp
  • Egg – 1 pp
  • Almond milk – 1/2 – 1 cup depending on consistency – you want it runny but thick
  • Frozen berries – 1/2 cup
  • Pecans
  • Maple Syrup
  • Coconut oil – 1 tbsp

Make it

  1. Pop the protein powder, cacao, avocado, egg and almond milk into a smoothie cup and blend
  2. Heat the coconut oil to medium heat in a frying pan – you need to ensure that with every batch, you add more coconut oil to the pan to avoid burning your pancakes
  3. Pour the mixture into the pan slowly making small circles
  4. When you see small bubbles start to form on the top, use a spatula and turn the pancakes over until cooked through
  5. Heat the frozen berries in a pan until thawed / or pop in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute
  6. Pop the pancakes into a stack and pour the berry mix over the top
  7. Add the pecans and drizzle the maple syrup over the stack

Enjoy 🙂
