Whenever I am lacking sleep and feeling a little stressed, I crave chocolate and sweets. When my life gets a little unbalanced, my body craves sweet treats.
I will be out of town this weekend to celebrate a dear friend’s bachelorette party. Besides running around town grabbing all the stuff I need for outfits and accessories for each themed nights, I am also making a special montage to surprise the bride-to-be. It’s a trip down memory lane :)
1000 pictures to choose from, 100+ pictures made the cut, 6 background songs and 50 slides later…I found myself still awake at 2am last night. Even though I felt sleepy and groggy this morning, I felt happy and productive.
I woke up this morning wanting sweet breakfast. Enter my Choco Coconut Protein Pancake.
These were moist, tasty, sweet, chocolatey and filling. I will definitely make these again soon. Loved it!
Choco Coconut Protein Pancake
- 2/3 cup liquid egg whites
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (24 grams)
- 1/8 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 2 tbsp almond milk
- 1 tbsp 100% cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Stevia or any sweetener (to taste)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and let sit for a few minutes. The batter is thin so I used a measuring cup and poured on a non-stick pan.
I cooked them on medium heat using coconut oil. I made 5 medium size pancakes. These are like crepes but a little more fluffy. Watch them carefully as they cook quickly.
With Sugar fee fruit jam on top.
