Chocolate Protein Pancakes (Vegetarian recipe)
With Summer just around the corner, I've been trying to fit in some more exercise sessions to tone up, and I'm now including more protein in my daily diet to help build up and repair my muscles. These Chocolate Protein Pancakes are one of my favourite ways to up my protein intake and they are super easy to make.

As much as I'm interested in health and fitness, there's one thing that I can't stand (actually there's quite a few, but let's keep on track here), and that's protein shakes. I've tried a lot of different brands and flavours and nope, I'd still rather eat my protein, rather than drink it! So what's a protein shake-hating girl to do? Make Protein Pancakes of course!

These pancakes are ridiculously easy to make and they really help to refuel your body after a sweaty HIIT workout. They also feel like more of a 'treat', so if you're finding healthy food boring or are tiring of the ultra-dry taste of most protein enhanced snacks, give these a go instead. You can use any kind of Chocolate flavour protein powder that you like, but if you fancy switching it up, why not try a different flavour like Vanilla or Strawberry? Top with fresh seasonal fruit and you're set for the day.

Chocolate Protein Pancakes (Vegetarian recipe)
Ingredients: (makes 2-4 pancakes depending on how big/thick you want them)
  • 2 Bananas (very ripe ones work best)
  • 2 scoops of Chocolate flavour Protein Powder (I used Prana Protein)
  • 2 Free-Range Eggs
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil
  • Fresh Fruit (optional to serve)
  • Honey or Agave Nectar (optional to serve)

Method:
  • Roughly chop up the Bananas and add them to a blender with the Eggs and Protein Powder. Blend until you get a mostly smooth, batter-like consistency.
  • Heat the Coconut Oil in a frying pan and pour out the pancake mix into your desired portion sizes. Cook the pancakes for a minute or two on each side.
  • Transfer to a plate and serve with Fresh Fruit and a drizzle of Honey. Enjoy!
