Breakfast / Dessert / Prep Approved

Nothing better than Sunday mornings and pancakes….and chocolate.

One thing I’ve been craving a lot of lately is chocolate. The funny thing is I’m not usually a sweets person but lately chocolate anything soulds like a winner to me!

20141012-DSC_7857I’m in prep for another 5 weeks, so I had to get a bit creative in getting my chocolate fix in. Cocoa powder to the rescue! I’m obsessed with special dark cocoa dutch powder. It’s definitely a life saver, along with Truvia.

 Chocolate Espresso Pancakes

1/2 cup of rolled oats

4 egg whites

1/2 scoop of Fiber DX

1/4 tsp of baking soda

1 tbsp of stevia

1 1/2 tbsp of cocoa powder

1 tbsp of espresso powder

Topping:

1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder

4 tbsp of hot water

1 tbsp of ground cinnamon, plus a few pinch to sprinkle on top

Combine all ingredients together in a blender and blend until it forms a batter. If batter is too thick, add water one tablespoon at a time.

Spray a preheated pan with coconut oil and cook pancakes over medium heat about two minutes per side.

Mix protein powder with water until it forms a thick syrup. Top pancakes with cinnamon and syrup.

I enjoyed mine with a nice cup of hot green tea matcha. After my show in 5 weeks, I may try adding some chocolate chips in these and maybe real syrup.
