I have been craving chocolate BIG TIME today... but rather than go crazy and eat junk, I decided some chocolate protein pancakes would be necessary ;)
Here's the problem: I had the HARDEST time trying to find a recipe that didn't have yogurt of any type. I can't have any dairy!
So I searched for awhile and decided to just throw this chocolate goodness together!
I LOVE what Shakeology does for me - and although I definitely don't recommend heating it (you lose most of the nutritional value), I needed to switch things up a little bit today!
So, I used:
- 1/4 cup oat flour (see below for a tip if you don't have this!)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 scoop chocolate shakeology
- 2 Tbsp almond milk
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1.5 tsp natural peanut butter
Add egg and 1/2 scoop of Shakeology :
Add almond milk, and vanilla, stir well with a fork:
The consistency should be thick:
Heat a medium saucepan on the stove on LOW/medium heat - not too hot! Once the pan is heated, add batter and monitor.
Once bubbles start to form (after about 3 minutes), flip and cook for an additional 3 - 4 minutes on the other side:
I drizzled the peanut butter on the pancakes and YUM! It definitely hit the spot!! They definitely weren't too sweet, so if you are looking to sweeten it up, I would add 1 tsp of agave nectar :)
