Gluten Free Chocolate Protein Pancakes


Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Makes about 8 pancakes / Serves 4


What’s Good About It?

Increasing the eggs in the recipe is an easy way to increase the total protein content along with the protein powder. You could use vanilla protein powder and omit the cocoa powder if wished.


  1. Simply place all the ingredients in a blender and process until thick and smooth. If too thick add a dash of milk or almond milk.
  2. Heat a frying pan with a little oil. Once hot pour a spoonful of the batter into the pan to make a little blini. Cook over a medium heat until the edges turn golden. Flip and cook for a further minute.
  3. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with berries and yogurt.
