High Protein Chocolate Chip Pancakes

High Protein Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Just in time for Xmas morning, here’s a hella stack of chocolate chip pancakes that EVERYONE will love you for!

They’re gluten, refined sugar & dairy free & PACKED with potassium, protein, healthy fats, fibre, good carbs & amino acids! And of course… bursting with chocolatey flavour! They’re so delicious, they taste like dessert!

All you need? A blender, a few simple staple ingredients & you’re well on your way to pancake heaven 👼!

BTW: flax is one of my faves to add to recipes because it has so many health benefits! It’s high in antioxidants, manganese, calcium, potassium & omega-3s, which boost cognitive function, heart health & reduce inflammation, lignans, which reduce the risk of cancer & regulate hormones, fibre for digestion, gut health & fullness. It regulates cholesterol & blood pressure, provides protein & amino acids & heals the skin due to high alpha linoleic acid content!

YOU NEED (7-9 pancakes, depending size)

  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
  • Pinch Celtic sea salt
  • 2 tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 2 scoops vegan/Whey protein of choice
  • OPTIONAL: any superfood/adaptogen powder of choice (matcha, ashwagandha, maca, cacao, moringa, açai, etc!)
  • Toppers: pure organic maple syrup & more chocolate chips

HOW?:

  • Add the ingredients to your blender (except choco chips) & blend until a batter is formed.
  • Fold in the choco chips.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat & spray with coconut oil.
  • Once heated, drop the batter in the skillet (about 1/4 cup) & cook until edges start to brown & look dry (it should take about 3 min.). Flip & cook on the other side for a minute or 2!
