CHOCOLATE-BANANA PROTEIN PANCAKES






When mom asked me to take care of breakfast this morning, I knew immediately that I wanted to make my gluten-free, vegan chocolate-banana pancakes (I know, long name.)




I've made these delicious and super nutritious babies before but as you all know, I suck at writing recipes because I never measure ingredients. This morning I made the tedious conscious effort to measure each ingredient... it only added a few hours to the preparation (haha okay fine, not hours, but it was still annoying - but you guys are worth it!)


These pancakes have a sweet spot in my heart because they are the first thing I ever cooked for my now boyfriend at the beginning of the weekend where we both fell for each other... magical pancakes maybe? Haha, who knows...









Anyhow, without further ado, here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of chocolate almond milk
  • 1 1/3 cup of  unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 scoops of chocolate Vega One powder
  • 2 cups of Wild Roots gluten-free pancake  mix
  • 1.5 cups of apple sauce
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 tsp. of organic maca powder (optional)
  • 2/3 tsp. of organic vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of vegan chocolate chunks

Steps:

  • Throw the milks, Vega One, flour, apple sauce, bananas, maca powder, and almond extract in your blender and mix.
  • Pour mix into bowl 
  • Coat cooking pan with your favourite butter alternative - I use Earth's Balance traditional spread
  • With a ladle, pour some of the mix unto the pan, and drop a few chocolate chunks 
  • When the bottom side is cooked, flip it over and cook the top until it's nice and ready!
  • Serve with your choice of toppings: strawberries, coconut flakes, maple syrup, honey, agave, etc. (I used organic blue agave syrup and strawberries, oh my, so good)
  • Enjoy!!!





I hope you guys like this recipe, because I sure love it. It is nutritious, filling and oh so delicious! Let me know what you think!

Love, 
Lorena
