I made chocolate orange protein pancakes and I take back everything b*tchy I ever said about #proteinpancakes… they were lush.
For a long time, I resisted the protein pancake buzz but these indulgent ones will convert even the most staunchly anti-protein pow hater – except my husband, of course (see below).
Chocolate and Orange Protein Pancakes
Serves 1 (I only needed one serving because when The Man saw the bag of protein powder, he laughed and said “piss off!!!!”)
- 1 egg white
- 1 banana
- 18g protein powder
- 2 teaspoons raw cacao powder
- A pinch of baking powder
- Zest of half an orange
- Berries and Greek yoghurt, to serve
Mash the banana loads, whisk in the egg white then add the protein powder, baking powder, cacao powder and zest.
Heat a non-stick frying pan, with a little oil over a medium-high heat. Spoon in dollops of the pancake mix and cook for a couple of minutes either side. Serve with berries and yoghurt.
NOTE: You need to be gentle when flipping these pancakes as they are little more delicate than traditional pancakes.
