eciThese are the best chocolate protein pancakes I've ever eaten, made with almond milk, egg whites, protein powder, high protein pancake mix, and creamy peanut butter. The peanut butter drizzle makes them over-the-top amazing.
How To Make Flavorful Chocolate Protein Pancakes
Tasty Pancake Toppings
For me, there's no better flavor combo than chocolate and peanut butter. It's magical. Justin's peanut butter cups are my jam. I'm thinking that one of those would be pretty awesome crumbled on top of this pancake stack...
You can also substitute the peanut butter for almond butter or skip it altogether for a fruit topping. Fresh berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries) are always great, too. You could melt the chocolate chips and drizzle those on top of the berries. Dang. I'm getting hungry again.
How do you like to top your stack? I'm obsessed with protein pancakes. You should also try these Wild Blueberry Matcha Pancakes, Protein-Packed Cottage Cheese Pancakes, Easy Protein Blender Pancakes, Sweet Potato Pancakes made with kefir and Protein-Packed Gluten-Free Strawberry Pancakes. Who else loves pancakes for dinner?!
