Protein Chocolate-Chip Pancakes Recipe
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein- Optimum
- 1 Scoop Almond Meal
- 2 Large Egg Whites or ¼ Cup Egg Substitute
- ¼ Cup Water
- 1/2 Cup Dark or Raw Chocolate Chips
- 1 TSP Stevia (for extra sweetening)
- 1 TBSP Flaxseed Meal (extra fiber, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids)
- Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and mix thoroughly until no lumps of protein or meal is left. Some proteins may be difficult to mix with a spoon, so use a blender to mix all ingredients except the chocolate chips, which are added and stirred in after blending.
- Using a nonstick pan, adjust your stove to medium and wait for the pan to heat up.
- Pour mixture into one spot and allow it to naturally spread into circles. Sift chocolate chips if necessary.
- Wait for the top layer to become filled with air bubbles, and then flip the vanilla-chocolate pancakes over.
- Cook for an extra minute before shutting off heat and transferring pancakes to your plate. Ensure pancakes are cooked thoroughly to prevent any consumption of raw eggs.
