Mocha Protein Pancakes

If you follow our Instagram you will see how much we love coffee, so it seemed the perfect idea to experiment and make mocha protein pancakes. Pancakes are so easy to make and once you have the base recipe you can just add flavour to them. We also made ‘nicecream’ for the first time, and it turned out really well. You basically blend frozen bananas and we decided to add a shot of espresso.

We hope you enjoy these as much as us, let us know if you decide to recreate these delcicious pancakes and also share a photo with us on twitter or instagram as we love to see!

Method
1.roughly chop the banana and place in an air tight container before putting them in the freezer for at least 5 hours (we did it the night before)
2. Take the bananas out of the freezer and blend them until they form an ice cream like consistency (it will be quite runny). Add the shot of espresso to the mixture and pour into a container.
3. Place the banana mix back into the freezer for a couple of hours until solid.
4.Place the dry ingredient in a bowl
5. Add the egg whites and mix. Add the espresso and  then slowly add the milk until a batter forms.
6. Heat your pan (medium/high heat) and melt some coconut oil.
7. Add a table spoon of mixture to your pan and flip once bubbles appear on the surface.
8. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water and then add the maple syrup
9. Stack the pancakes, place a scoop of espresso nicecream ontop and drizzle with the chocolate sauce

  1. Oh my word these look insanely delicious! I love how I can use oats for so many things, and they’re one of my staples when it comes to what is in my pantry. I’m not big on coffee but I can see how these flavors just work together, regardless of whether i’m a coffee fan or not. Also, one can never go wrong with a banana-chocolate combo.
