Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

I really don't think I need to say much, the recipe speaks for itself.


Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

- 2 scoops Vanilla Whey Protein
- 30g Organic Oat Flour (I used Arrowhead Mills)
- 6 tbsp Liquid Egg Whites
- 1/8 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
- 1 Banana, mashed
- 1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1/4 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 tsp Baking Soda

- 1 tbsp Dark Chocolate Chips
- 2 tbsp Walden Farms Pancake Syrup
- 1 tbsp Light Cool Whip  

- Combine the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl (I like to use one with a spout so it's easier to pour the pancakes).
*Tip* Use a ripe, more brown than green banana.  They are sweeter, softer, and easier to mash (you want to make sure you mash the banana very well so you don't have any chunks in your batter).  Also, research has shown  that the darker patches it has, the higher the immunity enhancement quality.
- Spray pan with non-stick cooking spray and heat on Medium-Low.
- Pour batter into pan and sprinkle 1/2 tbsp dark chocolate chips onto each pancake.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. 
- Top pancakes with Walden Farms Pancake Syrup and a dollop of Light Cool Whip. 

*This recipe makes 2 servings*
Serving Size = 2 large pancakes

  1. The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years which ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture and grain-based diets. In common usage, such terms as the "Paleolithic diet" also refer to the actual ancestral human diet
