I have been pretty much drooling over the idea of some peanut butter pancakes and just haven’t had the morning to actually put it all together.
But First! Fun! I went to my first Blogger Meet Up on Wednesday Night with the Central Florida Lady Bloggers. It was really fun to meet some local ladies that have all found a niche in blogging. Each of them had something different that they were passionate about and it really shows through in their blogs.
Definitely check out their blogs. Some of them are newer, some seasoned vets. But you will find vegetarians, fitness instructors, photographers, beauty gurus and anything else you can think of! In the picture, Carolina, Stephanie, Marilyn, Kerry, Rachel, Nadege, Colleen, Margarita, Danielle, and Christine.
It was great to meet some of the local bloggers and just to get to know some different people.
NOW. For the main even of BREAKFAST. I LOVED this. Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Protein Pancake! For REAL.
|1/3 Cup Pancake Mix
||1/4 Cup Chocolate Protein Powder
|2 Egg Whites, I used 1 yolk as well
||1 Tablespoon Water
|1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter, Melted
||1/4 Teaspoon Cocoa Powder
1. In an bowl, mix all of the ingredients until well mixed. Add a little more water if needed. The batter SHOULD be VERY thick. This is what will give it the lava effect.
2. Heat up the skillet to medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Now put the whole batter on the skillet to make 1 pancake. You may have to use a spoon to spread it out a bit. After 20 seconds, flip the pancake and cook the other side for an additional 15 seconds. Remove.
The inside will be chocolately and peanut buttery and gooey. I topped mine with a half of a banana and spritzed a little agave nectar on top. It was delicious and really filling.
One reason I really like this recipe is because it only takes a few minutes to pull together. Sub 5 minutes. You don’t need any fancy toppings or to get too complicated. The pancake really takes care of the flavor for you. It is also PACKED with protein and will keep you full until you are ready for your next meal.
Give it a go and let me know what you think!
What’s your favorite flavor of pancakes?? Peanut Butter? Chocolate?? Blueberry? Banana??
I am a fruit gal. I a really really big fan of the blueberry pancakes. They are usually really light and full of that fruity flavor.
