A healthy, filling breakfast {Chocolate Chip Protein Pancake Recipe!}

Holy yum, ya’ll!

We all know it’s SUPER important to eat a healthy, filling breakfast right? Well, that’s great, but for me, it’s gotta be FAST & also super tasty. Well here ya go! I’m excited to share a new recipe with you that I’ve adjusted from a base recipe and perfected (at least to MY taste! I’ll tell you how to adjust if you have different preferences).

I make THESE beautiful protein pancakes in big batches, let them cool, wrap in plastic wrap individually, store in the fridge and hubby and I have SUPER easy, fast, and healthy breakfasts on the go for DAYS.

Looks tasty, right!?

Healthy chocolate chip protein pancake recipe

Without further ado, here’s the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Scoops quality whey or whey & soy protein
  • 1 cup oat flour (use a magic blender, use old fashioned oats and BLEND to make oat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 egg whites (or equivalent if you use egg whites in a carton)
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt
  • 1 tbs almond or coconut milk (regular will be fine if that’s all you have)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract *OPTIONAL
  • dark chocolate chips *OPTIONAL (but highly recommended!)

Mix dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients and stir until mixed. Lightly oil a nonstick pan with coconut oil or olive oil. Warm pan to med-high. Drop 2 tablespoons or so into the pan for each pancake and spread slightly with the back of your spoon so they spread a bit. Place a few chocolate chips in into the batter of each pancake while the first side cooks. It takes about a minute to cook the first side. Flip gently and cook the other side for a minute or so until done. Let cool or enjoy immediately.

Here’s what they look like when you first put them in the pan & spread the batter a touch.

TOP WITH: Pure maple syrup, fresh fruit, whole fruit preserves, or, my favorite, either a tablespoon of peanut butter or a mixture of 1 tablespoon peanut butter whipped with 1 tablespoon plain greek yogurt. You could also play around with all sorts of toppings…maybe a flax/almond butter mixture? Or coconut oil mixed with almond butter? Have fun. And let me know your concoctions.

**I said I’d help you adjust if you don’t like the kind of pancakes that I do. If these turn out too thick/dense for you, just cut back the oat flour a touch. If you want more flavor without having to use toppings, add a half a smashed banana into the batter – or a tablespoon of peanut butter. Or play with other extracts. If you like pancakes thinner…you’ll want  to spread the batter as you put it in the pan. Since it’s a little thick, it won’t spread on its own like regular pancake batter.

Hope you try these healthy chocolate chip protein pancakes and love them. Let me know in the comments! 🙂

    few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I
    think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
