Chocolate Protein Pancake Strips

These chocolate protein pancakes came out SO YUMMY and I used my Plexus P96 Protein powder (get yours by clicking here)! You don’t have to cut them into strips like I did here, but it sure makes them easier to eat on-the-go, use as snacks between meals, and my kiddo loves it that way too. These pancakes are moist and did not need any syrup. Eat them warm or cold. Perfect breakfast, snack, or even dessert (for those chocolate lovers out there like me).

What You’ll Need—The Dry Stuff:

    • 1/3 c oat flour
    • 2 tbsp gf rolled oats
    • 2 tbsp psyllium husk powder
    • 2 tbsp coconut flour
    • 2 tbsp hulled hemp seed

(*you could also double up on the almond meal if you don’t have hulled hemp seeds/hearts*)

  • 2 tbsp ground almond meal
  • 1 tsp reduced sodium baking powder
  • A dash or 2 of Pink Himalayan salt
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tbsp organic coconut palm sugar
  • 2 packets P 96 protein powder (choc or vanilla, I’m using one choc and one vanilla)
    (If u can’t do whey then try Plant Fusion)

The Wet Stuff:

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp butter flavor
  • 1/2 dropper stevia leaf extract (or to taste if u prefer sweeter)
  • 1 4oz unsweetened organic apple sauce
  • 3 eggs
  • 8OZ Unsweetened Almond Milk (I used empty applesauce container x 2)

Heat griddle to 350-400

Get the food scale ready (or if you’re comfortable eye balling it, that’s fine)
I use a paper plate and set the scale to 0.

Mix all dry ingredients together then add the wet ones right on top. No need to dirty a second bowl.

Mixture will be a little thick and fluffy.

Then fold 2 palms of bittersweet choc chips in (optional) but SO worth adding!

I sprayed the griddle with nonstick avocado oil (you can use any healthy cooking spray here) then scoop out the batter in small round heaps.

Flip after a minute or two and gently press down to flatten them a bit.

Flip again after another minute or two and gently press again. Then flip one more time…give it another minute or so and then use the spatula and slice into strips.

Now weigh out the strips in 4-5 oz portions for those who eat four or more times a day. If you only eat three meals daily with snacks, then double the portion to 8-10oz. *Snack portion size is the 4-5oz

If you don’t have a food scale, the 4-5 oz portion is roughly 4-5 strips (depending on size) and of course double that for the larger portion.

Then I like to store them in small containers and put in the fridge for quick, easy, and on-the-go access.

Makes 5 servings (and an extra slice or 2) of 4-5 oz sized meals.
