Healthy chocolate pancakes for the guilt-free brunch of your dreams
13th Mar 2021
I made chocolate orange protein pancakes and I take back everything mean I ever said about protein pancakes because these are 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
- 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
1 Mash the banana loads, whisk in the egg white then add the protein powder, baking powder, cacao powder and zest.
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.
Tip: You need to be gentle when flipping these pancakes as they are little more delicate than traditional pancakes.
