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!
I’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
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.
This looks wonderful for a Sunday or any day!!!
