Ingredients

Pancake Batter

40g plain flour

30g vegan vanilla protein powder

1 tablespoon (5g) granulated sweetener

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

80g dairy-free yogurt (I used soy)

120ml non-dairy milk (I used almond)

20g dairy-free choc chips (I used a sugar-free variety)

To Serve

Vegan butter

Maple syrup

Extra choc chips

Method

Prepare the Pancake Batter

In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients for the pancake batter except the choc chips. Stir until you achieve a thick yet pourable consistency. This mixture forms the base of your delicious pancakes.

Cook the Pancakes

Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Pour in 1/4 cup of the pancake batter for each pancake. Sprinkle some choc chips on top of each portion. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. The pancakes should be fluffy and slightly crisp around the edges.

Transfer to a Plate

Once cooked, transfer each pancake to a serving plate. This step ensures that the pancakes stay warm while you finish cooking the remaining batter.

Repeat the Process

Continue cooking the batter in batches, repeating step 2 until all the pancake batter is used up. This method helps maintain a consistent cooking temperature and ensures each pancake is perfectly cooked.

Serve and Enjoy

Serve the pancakes warm, topped with a dollop of vegan butter, a drizzle of maple syrup, and some extra choc chips for an indulgent touch.

Tips for Success

Substitutions: This recipe is highly adaptable. You can use any type of dairy-free yogurt and milk you have available. For instance, coconut yogurt and oat milk would work just as well, offering different flavor profiles and textures.

Sweeteners: If you prefer a natural sweetener, you can replace the granulated sweetener with coconut sugar or agave syrup. Adjust the quantity to taste.

Protein Powder: The type of vegan protein powder you use can alter the flavor of the pancakes. Vanilla is a great choice for a neutral, sweet taste, but feel free to experiment with chocolate or berry-flavored protein powders.

Choc Chips: Opt for sugar-free choc chips if you're watching your sugar intake. Alternatively, dark chocolate chunks can add a richer flavor to the pancakes.

Customizing Your Pancakes

While this recipe keeps it simple, you can easily customize your pancakes with a variety of toppings. Fresh fruits like bananas, berries, or even a spoonful of nut butter can elevate your pancake experience. For a crunchy texture, try adding some nuts or seeds. The possibilities are endless, making these pancakes a versatile option for any breakfast table.

A Note on Nutrition

These Choc Chip Protein Pancakes are not only delicious but also packed with nutrients. Each batch provides a substantial amount of protein, making them an excellent choice for a post-workout meal or a satisfying breakfast that will keep you full for hours. The use of dairy-free ingredients makes this recipe suitable for those with dietary restrictions or preferences.
