Chocolate Coconut Protein Pancakes

You all know how much I LOVE my protein pancakes!  Personally, I think pancakes should be their own food group.  Just sayin!  Lol.  So, this morning I was craving chocolate and coconut for some reason and decided to put those two flavors together to make a delicious and nutritious stack of high protein pancakes :)

Chocolate Coconut Protein Pancakes
with warm almond butter sauce and fresh strawberries

- 2 tbsp Organic Coconut Flour
- 1/2 scoop VPX Sports SRO Zero Carb Chocolate Protein Powder
- 1/8 tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 cup Unsweetend Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1/4 cup Egg Whites
- 1 tbsp Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
- 1/8 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 tbsp All Natural Almond Butter
- 50g Fresh Organic Strawberries, chopped

- Mix all the dry ingredients together in a small bowl.
Use a glass measuring cup with a spout to mix ingredients so you can easily pour the pancake batter!
- Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and stir until you reach a smooth pancake batter consistency.
- Heat pan to Low-Medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray or coat with coconut oil.
- Pour 1/3 of the batter onto pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side.
When pancakes form air bubbles that is a good indication you should flip your pancake ;)
- This recipe makes 3 medium sized Chocolate Coconut Protein Pancakes!
- Spoon 1 tbsp of almond butter into a small microwave safe bowl and heat for about 30 seconds.
- Pour warm almond butter sauce over Chocolate Coconut Protein Pancakes stack.
- Chop fresh strawberries and place on top!

Now enjoy deliciousness! <3

  1. Is the inside if te pancake supposed to stay soft? I tried a 1st batch and it came out horrible so I tossed it and followed with a 2nd batch to the t with some help and the batter still seemed not to cook through. I cooked on medium u til the outside burned and still had a very mushy inside. Is the recipe accurate?
    I used the exact product u mentioned except for the protein powder which was the chocolate MyoFusion protein powder.

    1. Nope they should not be mushy on the inside, nice and fluffy as you can see in the picture! You may need to lower the temperature and cook more slowly as some pans heat differently than others. Also, maybe it could be using a different protein powder? I only use my VPX SRO and it works wonders. Hope you try them again and they turn out better for you! :)
