I don't think words can accurately describe my love and/or obsession with the protein pancake, but I will do my best...it is easy to make, packed with protein, can be substituted for any meal of the day, tastes like a mini chocolate cake, can be made with many different variations, can be made naughty or nice, is a perfect pre or post-workout meal, it satisfies craving and saves me from making bad choices, and it tastes phenomenal! There, I think that may put it into perspective for all of you out there :).
Anyway, I was feeling naughty and wanted a treat this weekend, so I whipped up this amazing banana and chocolate chip pancake to satisfy my cravings. I finally got to use my Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (soy, dairy and gluten free, wahoo!), and this was also my first time using my Chia seed in a pancake, both were great additions!
Banana and Chocolate Chip Protein Pancake (soy, dairy & grain free)
Makes 1 large pancake
Mix all the ingredients together except for the PB2. Set your stove to medium to medium-low heat, preheat frying pan. Heat will vary depending on the type of stove you are working with. I have a gas stove, so my stove top gets very hot and cooks my food very quick. Once the pan is hot, toss in a small scoop of extra virgin coconut oil or spray oil to coat the pan. Pour the batter into the pan, cover with lid and cook pancakes for a couple minutes on both sides until golden brown brown, flipping once.
