I have been wanting to create a protein pancake recipe for a while. They seem to be a staple of a lot of fitness people’s diets due to the high protein, high carbs, and low fat.

But I didn’t want to make something bland or tasteless like I know some “fitness foods” can be. I think it’s important to find a balance between foods that help you reach your fitness goals, and foods that taste good! I knew protein pancakes wouldn’t taste like full fat ones, but I wanted to see what I could come up with.

I’m a big fan of peanut butter. I’m also a big fan of chocolate. So what could be better than Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes?

I willingly sacrificed making this three different times to get it just right. It was SO hard having to eat all those pancakes, but I did it just for you.

First, I whisked together in a small mixing bowl:

Then, I combined in a measuring cup:

  • 1/2 c. 2% Milk
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Flavoring
  • 1/3 c. Egg Whites
  • 1/4 c. Honey

I whisked these together until they were fully blended and a little foamy.

Then, I poured my wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisked them together until the mixture was bubbly.

Then, I heat a nonstick frying pan on Medium Heat. Once hot, I greased it with small amount of butter. Note: I am including 1/2 T. butter in my recipe to account for the times you will need to grease the pan. You WILL need too or else the mixture will stick too much.

I then scooped 1/2 c. of the pancake mixture onto the frying pan, waited until the batter began to bubble just a little bit and the edges looked a little done and then flipped (about 3 min, maybe less).

The mixture produced 4 medium sized pancakes.

Then, I topped mine with some more PB2 and Honey (not included in the recipe’s calories/macros), but feel free to use syrup, cool whip, chocolate chips.. whatever works for you!

One thing I have to say is that I made these for my husband who doesn’t really track or try to eat specifically macro-friendly foods (he is in great shape though, and he does love his protein.. because MUSCLES) and he liked them!

Enjoy!
