Reese’s Protein Pancakes

IMG_0752-smallOne good thing I ate over the weekend were these Reese’s Protein Pancakes.  I made this recipe last weekend and was telling my mom about the recipe over the phone.  Even though I wasn’t sure of this recipe was blog worthy, my mom encouraged me to share it.

IMG_0751-smallI mean, who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter?!  It’s probably the best flavor combination of all time.  I threw a little honey and a few slices of bananas on top for good measure.  If you are feeling a little adventurous you could add a few bits of bacon on top too… just a thought. :)

Reese’s Protein Pancakes
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 1
 

Ingredients
  • 1 heaping tablespoon almond meal
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • ⅔ mashed banana
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 drop of liquid Stevia
  • Splash of almond milk to loosen batter
  • honey
  • crunchy peanut butter (or nut butter of choice)

Instructions
  1. Combine almond meal, cocoa powder, egg, vanilla extract and stevia in bowl.
  2. Add mashed banana to the batter and use a splash of almond milk to loosen the batter if needed.
  3. Pour batter on a skillet over medium heat. Cook each side of the pancake for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Top the pancake with crunchy peanut butter, honey, and a few slices of banana.

 

Instead of using protein powder for this recipe, I used almond meal once again.  Almond meal is becoming a staple in my recipes these days.

IMG_0760-smallI also used 2/3rd of the banana instead of half and the pancake turned out a little more substantial which I enjoyed.  I used the remaining banana slices as toppers.

IMG_0758-smallYup, that’s a paper plate! The migraine I had Sunday really threw my blog schedule for a loop.  Normally I create recipes for the blog on the weekend, and I just didn’t have time for them this week.  Lucky for me, I take pictures of just about everything I eat, and do, for that matter.  Who else do you know who takes pictures of her migraine experience?!  Probably just this crazy person…

    • That’s probably a good thing! The hubs can get a little annoyed with me constantly snapping pictures of our dinner.

  1. Thanks for posting this, they look so good. I will try these for sure. I need to get coco powder and almond meal. Do you find both at Trader Joes? Are you feeling better. Sorry to hear about your migraine. Love you!

    • Thanks Mom! My head is feeling much better! Yeah, you can find both at Trader Joe’s. You could also make your own almond meal by grinding up a few almonds in a blender!

  2. Your mom was right – the recipe is totally blog worthy. I’m going to show this to the hubs when he gets home. Reeses are his FAVORITE and he also loves pancakes…pretty sure he’s going to request these ASAP. And it looks like I need to jump on the almond meal boat ASAP.

    • Let me know if he likes it! You may want to add a little Stevia to the batter to make it a tad sweeter. The cocoa powder can be bitter, especially for a true Reeses lover!
