Easy Chocolate Protein Pancakes for One - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT
Good morning my lovlies! Pancakes anyone?
Today I’m trying something that I’ve rarely done in the past and sharing a single-serve recipe. Okay, realistically it could easily feed 2 and I’d usually only eat half of this recipe myself. Hey, but if you’re the type with a huge appetite in the morning this might be the perfect amount for you.
Of course it’s very simple to double, triple, or quadruple it for those who are feeding a group, but otherwise this is just the right amount of pancakes to start off a perfect morning. I used a chocolate protein powder that's made from pea protein but any plant-based chocolate protein powder should work fine. I also topped mine with a sauce I made with this chocolate pbfit, and of course berries because that’s my addiction!
Single Serving Chocolate Protein Pancakes
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 1-2 servings
Never thought chocolate could fit into a healthy breakfast? Well think again because these pancakes change all the rules and are perfect for sharing with a friend....or not.
1/3 cup whole wheat flour (you can replace it with all-purpose if preferred or gluten free flour if needed)
1/2 scoop (about 19g) chocolate protein powder (I used this one here)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon cacao powder
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or preferred milk)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk together the cider vinegar, almond milk, and vanilla extract in a small mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients, salt, baking powder, sugar, cacao, pancake mix, and protein powder.
Combine the wet with the dry and fold gently until you have a nicely thick pancake batter with just a few lumps. Set aside the batter to rest for about 10 - 15 minutes.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high heat and pour the batter into desired size pancakes and cook for about 1 minute per side. Remove and top with any desired toppings.
