Chocolate Protein Pancakes!

Chocolate Protein Pancakes

After making a video for my Greek Yoghurt Healthy Pancake Recipe I thought it was time to make a protein version of the pancakes.. a chocolate protein version for that matter! And you can [click here] to see the recipe in action!


I have a few healthy pancake recipes already on my blog, and you may have already tried my ‘American Style Banana Protein Pancakes’ .. this recipe however is for all of you non-banana lovers (please excuse the banana on the side of the pancakes as shown in the pic!!) as I have used yoghurt instead of banana to add moisture!


The entire pancake batter comes in at under 250 calories and provides a whopping 45g of protein – more if you include extra yoghurt as a topping, which is great for muscle-repair and leaving you feeling fuller for longer.


Who says pancakes are just for pancake day?? NOT ME!! Enjoy :).


Chocolate Protein Pancakes



Chocolate Protein Pancakes


  • 30g chocolate whey protein*
  • 10g cocoa
  • 2 egg whites
  • 100g 2% fat Greek yoghurt
  • Coconut oil for cooking
  • Toppings: fruit/yoghurt/chocolate sauce such as Choc Shot


  1. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl (apart from the oil and toppings) and whisk together with an electric whisk.
  2. Heat some coconut oil in a pan until hot and pour in some of the mixture to make a round pancake. Cook on each side for a couple of minutes until the batter turns into a pancake (use a large spatula to turn the pancakes over).
  3. Add the pancake to a plate and repeat for the rest of the mixture.
  4. Serve your pancake stack with extra yoghurt and berries and enjoy!
