The Best Chocolate Protein Pancakes
Pancakes are great, but if they are lacking one thing, it is protein. These pancakes solve that problem. Packed with easy to digest protein, they will keep you full until lunch and help curb cravings later in the day. Their chocolate flavor is also divine, and can be enhanced by adding a handful of chocolate chips. Start your day right with chocolate protein pancakes.
If you are vegan, you can use our vegan vegan vanilla protein powder and 2 tbsp of cocoa powder instead. Just substitute a banana for the egg.
For toppings, I recommend strawberries and confectioners sugar. If you want an extra protein boost, lather your pancakes with peanut butter.
These are some of the healthiest pancakes out there. They are added sugar and dairy-free, and can be made with wholewheat flour for extra fiber. Bon appétit.
“I just finished my first bag and ordered 2 more! I Iove this stuff! I have IBS and every protein powder hurts my stomach…except drink wholesome!”
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome chocolate protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how many rock-hard pancakes are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
