Chocolate Chip Power Pancakes!

Eating these pancakes are like eating dessert for breakfast! If you are watching your weight, just eat one pancake with a serving of egg whites. If it is a high carb day and a little more fat is okay, eat 2. Great for the whole family…your husband and kids will love them and they won’t even know it’s healthy. :). One pancake has 130 calories, 17 grams of carbs, 6 grams of fat (because I used coconut oil…you can use a lower fat spread like smart balance…melt it before you put it in the mix), 6 grams of protein, 186 mg of sodium, and 3 grams of sugar (you can substitute the semi-sweet chocolate chips with dark chocolate pieces and use less).


Mix in a large bowl:

1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Organic 7 Grain Pancake and Waffle Mix

1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder (I used IDS)

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

3/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk (you can use water or other types of milk)

1 egg (you don’t have to use an egg…it just makes the mix richer…you can also use egg white)

1 and 1/2 serving of Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips

Makes 6 pancakes.
