Dark Chocolate Pancakes

Serves: 1

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 
1 ounce chocolate protein powder
  • 
1 TBSP unsweetened dark cocoa powder*
  • 
1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 
1 TBSP ground flax seeds
  • 
1 packet stevia
  • 
3 egg whites, beaten
  • 
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 
1 cup frozen sliced strawberries, thawed
  • 
unsweetened shredded coconut, for garnish (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. 
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, flax, stevia, cocoa, and protein powder. Stir to distribute ingredients evenly.
  2. In a separate small bowl, whisk together egg whites and almond milk. Add to dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Gently stir in half of the strawberries. Allow to sit for a few minutes to allow the flax to absorb the liquid.
  3. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto cooking surface and add a small amount of chocolate chips. Cook until small bubbles begin to form on the outer edges. Flip and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Repeat until no more batter remains.
  4. Place pancakes on serving plate and sprinkle with remaining strawberries and toppings of choice.

Note: *Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa powder is great but you can use regular unsweetened cocoa powder.
