Healthy chocolate pancakes for the guilt-free brunch of your dreams

I made chocolate orange protein pancakes and I take back everything b*tchy I ever said about #proteinpancakes... they were lush.

For a long time, I resisted the protein pancake buzz but these indulgent ones will convert even the most staunchly anti-protein pow hater - except my husband, of course (see below).

Chocolate and Orange Protein Pancakes

Serves 1 (I only needed one serving because?when The Man saw the bag of protein powder, he laughed and said "piss off!!!!")



  • 1 egg white
  • 1 banana
  • 18g protein powder
  • 2 teaspoons raw cacao powder
  • A pinch of baking powder
  • Zest of half an orange
  • Berries and Greek yoghurt, to serve


Step 1

Mash the banana loads, whisk in the egg white then add the protein powder, baking powder, cacao powder and zest.

Step 2

Heat a non-stick frying pan, with a little oil over medium-high heat. Spoon in dollops of the pancake mix and cook for a couple of minutes either side. Serve with berries and yoghurt.


NOTE: You need to be gentle when flipping these pancakes as they are little more delicate than traditional pancakes.
