Walnut & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Pancake

Did you guys know that we have been blessed with not ONE but TWO National Pancake holidays? That is right, TWO! September 26th is the first National Pancake Day, which I vividly remember celebrating with a delicious protein pancake, and IHOP decided they would coin February 28th as their own National Pancake Day. Of course you will almost never catch me indulging on a real flour pancake, but if you know me or have scrolled through my Protein Powder Recipe tab, you know my obsession with these delightful cakes! So in honor of our 2nd National Pancake Day, I whipped up this tasty walnut and chocolate chip "cookie dough" protein pancake. For the topping, I just drizzled a little bit of coconut oil over the top, it turned out mouth watering good! Enjoy and let me know what you think!

While we are on the topic of protein pancakes, everyone get your thinking caps on because Ms. Daria McDermott and I are on the hunt for some new creative pancake ideas, so get ready!

Walnut & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Pancake (soy, dairy & grain free)
Makes 1 large pancake 
  • 2 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Vitol Vanilla Egg Protein Powder )
  • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 20 mini Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
  • 1.5 tbsp raw walnts
  • 3 tbsp egg white
  • 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree
  • Cinnamon & stevia to taste
  • Dash of baking powder
Mix all the ingredients together.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 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. Bon Appétit!
