Low-Carb Chocolate Pancakes

28 Jan

I posted a picture of these chocolate pancakes on twitter the other day and I’ve had a lot of people ask for the recipe! Soooooo here it is! 🙂 These are great for a late night snack (because it’s LOW CARB) & also for a quick on-the-go snack. They are also perfect for sweet cravings!! *Sugar Free Syrup makes them even better.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Scoops of Chocolate Protein (I use Myofusion Milk Chocolate because it taste amazing!)
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1 Whole Egg
  • 1/2 C Almond Milk
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Butterbuds (optional)

Directions:

Mix powder, eggs, milk & cinnamon in a bowl. You may have to adjust the amount of almond milk based on the texture of the mixture. You want it to be similar to pancake mix with no clumps. Then cook like a pancake. When you take the pancake off the pan sprinkle it with the butterbuds (or even add extra cinnamon) It will melt giving it a really good flavor! I use about 3 tablespoons to make each pancake which makes.
