Hot Chocolate Pancakes!

Yep, you read the title right! Hot chocolate. Pancakes.

There’s really nothing else to say.

I found Starbucks Hot Cocoa with Peppermint mix, and immediately knew I’d come up with another use for it aside from a drink.

If you don’t have the same mix there is no reason to worry. You can substitute regular cocoa powder or a hot chocolate flavor of your choice!

Like most pancakes, these are simple to whip up, and freeze well too if you’d like to save them for a busy morning.

No protein powder? No problem! Use an egg or extra egg whites if you want a larger protein boost!

Hot Chocolate Pancakes

Yield: 1 Serving

2 TB Hot Cocoa Mix or 15 grams (I used 1/2 package)

1/2 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (15 grams)

1/4 Cup Oat Flour (30 grams)

1 tsp Baking Powder

3 TB Almond Milk

2 TB Greek Yogurt

2 TB Egg Whites

Method:

Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Add milk to desired consistency (less for a thick batter, more for a runny batter).

Pour onto a pre-heated non-stick pan and flip after 2 minutes.

Garnish with anything from candy cane to crushed nuts and syrup!

Aren’t they pretty?
