protein-pancakes

Since it’s #WaffleWednesday AND #NationalWaffleDay I obviously had to whip some up to refuel after an early morning leg day🙆🏻 I made vegan chocolate protein waffles using @pescience vegan chocolate bliss protein, @birchbenders classic recipe pancake mix, & cocoa powder, and topped em with peanut butter & @enjoylifefoods dairy free mini chocolate chips!🍫

Made with Instagram

These have got to be my favorite pancakes! I haven’t posted the recipe in a while so here ya go!

Oreo Protein Pancakes:

¼ cup flour
1 packet stevia
½ tsp baking powder
¾ Tbsp cocoa powder
2 Tbsp protein powder
½ cup milk
½ tsp white vinegar
1 Tbsp applesauce
Vanilla

Mix dry ingredients together and then stir in wet. Make the pancakes on the stove over low-medium heat.

Layer pancakes with vanilla Greek yogurt. If you feel ok eating Oreos, crush up one Oreo and mix it with the yogurt and then layer.

I make pancakes all the time so I thought I’d do a little tutorial with my favorite flavor!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Pancakes: 

 1/3 cup flour (any kind) 
1/3 cup quick oats 
1 tsp baking powder 
1 packet stevia or 1 Tbsp brown sugar 
½ scoop Quest vanilla protein powder 
Some mini chocolate chips 
About ½ cup milk (just pour until right consistency. I used almond milk)

Heat up your pan/griddle on low-medium heat. On my stove that means like a 4-5. Mix dry ingredients (first 6 ingredients) together. Then add in the milk and careful not to overstir. Take some drops of water and splash it onto the pan. If it sizzles, you’re ready. Pour the mixture out onto the pan/griddle. One you start you see bubbles and the edges hardening like in the first picture, you’re flippin ready to flip those bad boys! If you’re making very dense pancakes like some other protein pancakes, they might not bubble. You’ll just have to take a peak underneath. Then, you’ll have to take a peak for the second side to see if they’re done done (second pic). If they look like they are done and look like the top, and the edges look done as well, they’re ready for eatin! Well, careful, they’re hot🔥

I freakin love pancakes. I’m pretty sure they’re the love of my life. I mean, look at them. They’re beautiful, sweet, delicious, and chocolatey. And these bad boys even have protein! These are definitely my favorite pancakes!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Pancakes:

1/3 cup flour (whichever kind, I usually use almond flour)
1/3 cup quick oats
1 packet stevia or ¼ cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
Chocolate chips
½ scoop protein powder (I use Quest vanilla flavor, get yours here!)
About ¾ cup milk (I use almond milk and pour til right consistency)

Mix all ingredients together and pour onto pan over low-medium heat. Cook on first side til the edges look done and bubbles appear (first pic). You can peak under and check to see if they look like second pic. Then flip them and it will be second pic. This side will cook much quicker. Give it a minute and then start peaking under. Once done, place onto plate and enjoy!
