Chocolate Cinnamon Protein Pancakes

March 11, 2016

This protein pancake is another winner.  If you haven't experienced the fantastic result of banana mixed with chocolate in a pancake, I would start here!  These also keep well; my sister-in-law and I snacked on them as we drove 9 hours to Oregon with twin babies on board.  The protein and easy-to-digest nutrients from the chia seeds and hemp seeds will keep you going for hours.





Though not paid by Nutiva, I am delighted to receive the occasional sample of ingredients, and even when not receiving delicious hemp or chia seeds and the like, I have been a fan of their coconut flour for years.  It's a favorite of mine; the taste is better than every other brand I've tried and it's not nearly as clumpy.  (That's a surefire way to ruin a bite of pancake; with a dry cloud of coconut flour that didn't get mixed in!)


Chocolate Cinnamon Protein Pancakes

Serves 2-3




1 cup oat flour (or finely ground gf oats)
3 Tablespoons chocolate hemp protein powder (or any desired)
1-1/4 cup unsweetened hemp or coconut milk

1/3 cup coconut flour
1 banana, mashed

½ tablespoon ground chia seeds

1 tablespoon maple syrup

2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Optional for topping: chia seeds, cacao nibs and coconut

Optional syrup: cacao powder whisked with protein powder and water




1. Food-process all pancake ingredients until smooth. Set aside for a few minutes to thicken.
2. Stir mixture again. It should be thick, but add more milk if it looks too dry.
3. Cook on medium-low heat in a pan greased with coconut oil, about 4 minutes per side.
4. Serve as desired; I recommend my protein frosting (above) and a medley of cacao, chia and coconut.
