Happppppyyy MONDAY!! This weekend has been awesome! As promised, let’s start with this ridiculous stack of CHOCOLATE PROTEIN PANCAKES! they are not only super moist, (ew..I hate that word) they are the perfect texture and taste DELICIOUS!
I am a huge activist of pancakes on the weekends, lol. I mean, not “real” pancakes…lol….I mean, MY pancakes;)
I promise…you can eat them WITHOUT all the bad carbs, fat, and sugar. It’s allllll about the substitutions. This recipe calls for very few ingredients. Some may look a little unfamiliar to you, such as…”psyllium husks“ or “coconut flour“ but these products should make an appearance in all of your baking pantries! These are essentials to keeping a healthy “LOW GLYCEMIC” and “LOW CARB” kitchen. Don’t get allll obsessed with the words, low carb, I just mean “BETTER CARBS” 😉
- 1½-2 scoops chocolate whey protein ( I used Cellucor Molten Chocolate)
- 2 tbsp Psyllium Husks
- 1 tbsp Coconut Flour
- ½ cup steamed mushy cauliflower 😉
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup egg whites. ( I used carton egg whites)
- Use a NON STICK PAN. I LOVVVE Scanpan! on MED. heat.
- To grease pan, I used Natural coconut oil spray. (Found at Trader Joe’s)
- ***Just a little spritz per pancake***
- First mix all dry ingredients and slowly add in all wet, including steamed soft cauliflower. Beat or mix very well.
- Spoon in your batter as to not make too big of pancakes.
Now….this recipe or “stack” is considered 2 servings.
For 3 pancakes..280 cals, fat 7, carbs 2, protein 38.
You saw that right y’all!
38 GRAMS OF PROTEIN & 2 CARBS PER SERVING!
(NOTE: toppings extra cals and optional)
***0% Greek yogurt with a few drops of stevia***
***raw cacao nibs***
***strawberries ( or fave berry)***
***natures hollow syrup ( sugar-free)***
***sugar free Hershey’s chocolate syrup***
