Chocolate Oat Protein Pancake Recipe

This is by far my most requested recipe, so I thought I’d share it with you all.

Chocolate protein oat pancake served with honey and strawberries

There are loads of variations in flavours, as well as ingredients that may be used in the batter. You can experiment using combinations of different grains/flours: rice, quinoa, oat flour, soy flour, millet etc to achieve a different flavour and texture for your pancake. Ingredients such as greek yoghurt, milk, soy milk, almond milk etc can also be used.

The following recipe is one that I find works well for me as it it ticks all the boxes; tasty, nice texture, quick, easy and provides suitable amounts of protein, fat and carbohydrate for my breakfast needs.

Ingredients:

50g of rolled oats

3 tblsp water

1 whole egg

1 egg white

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (mine is WPI, with little-no sugar/carbs)

2 tblsp Vitarium sugar free drinking chocolate

Method:

Add the water to the oats and microwave for about 90-120 seconds, depending on your microwave. They should be soft, but not watery. This is important; if they’re watery, the pancake will not set properly. Cooking time will be shorter for “quick cook oats”.

Add all of the other ingredients to the oats and combine well.

Lightly spray a non-stick pan with oil, and place over a medium heat. Once the pan is hot, pour the mixture in and tilt the pan around so it spreads evenly.

Once the mixture is almost set and you are able to flip it over without it breaking, do so. Cook for another 60 seconds or so. (If i’m preparing mine to eat the next morning, i undercook slightly as i’ll be re-heating it in the AM).

Serve with a little honey, fresh berries and a sprinkle of the sugar free drinking chocolate.

Variations:

– Add frozen berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries) to the mixture before cooking. Be sure to let them sit and strain them before adding, so the mixture doesn’t become watery.

– Omit the sugar free drinking chocolate and use stevia for extra sweetness if you’d prefer a vanilla flavoured pancake.

– Try adding cinnamon and nutmeg, or any of your favourite spices.

ENJOY!
Felicity.
