Chocolate Protein Pancakes


These protein pancakes might be the easiest to make of any protein pancakes recipe I have ever attempted. Believe it or not, these are as easy to make as regular pancakes (say what?). There is no blender or food processor required, so even the newbie chef can master these. They are chocolately, delicious, and when topped with some sugar free chocolate syrup and strawberries they make for an incredible post-workout meal. There are full of protein, complex carbs, and fiber so this meal will keep you full and energized all morning. 

Recipe:
3 scoops/servings whey protein (I used Whey-HD by BPI Sports in Vanilla Caramel, available here
3/4 cup quinoa flour
3/4 cup liquid egg white
3/8 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp baking powder
6 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp stevia or sweetener of your choice.


There is really no need to separate dry or liquid ingredients with this recipe. I added the protein, flour, egg whites, cocoa powder, baking powder, and stevia together; and afterwards added almond milk until it looked like the consistency of a typical pancake batter.

Cook over low-medium heat and use nonstick cooking spray, and respray in between rounds of pancakes. This recipe makes enough for 2 hungry people, see nutrition below.
