I don’t just love pancakes, I’m a fanatic.

When I was just a little Viking Beast, I used to go to my grandparents during school lunch breaks.

I was super skinny and disliked food in general, except the heavenly pancakes from my grandmother. I survived on those.

Turns out those pancakes were just pre-packaged pancake mixes from the store, with a sprinkle of grandmother magic of some kind.

Many things changed over the years, but my deep love for pancakes never went away.

I’ve experimented with many protein pancake variations, and today I’m sharing how to make one of my favorites.

Chocolate protein pancakes.

Grab your favorite popcorn machine, pop some kernels, and enjoy this chocolate protein pancake recipe.

Ingredients in Chocolate Protein Pancakes

How to make Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Pancakes

Peanut butter is not only delicious but also a very good source of healthy fats.

This will make the peanut butter banana protein pancakes a more well-rounded meal because as described above it’s mainly high in carbohydrates and proteins.

How to calculate the calories in Chocolate Protein Pancakes

The chocolate protein pancakes as described above are 703 calories.

They have 72 grams of proteins, 41 grams of carbohydrates, 11 grams of fiber, and 25 grams of fat.

I used unsweetened almond milk and left out the peanut butter.

You can split it into two portions, depending on the number of calories/ proteins you'd like to eat.

If you wish to calculate the exact amount of calories in your custom chocolate protein pancakes, but you don’t know how, well I’ve you covered.

I’ve written an in-depth article that explains how you can easily track the calories of all your foods using an app called MyFitnessPal. You can find it here.

Make Chocolate Protein Pancakes lower in calories

If you’re on a lower-calorie diet or simply want to save more calories for later, here is what you can do:

  • Use only 1-2 eggs, and add some egg-white only eggs instead.
  • Use only 20 grams of oats.
  • Use only 10 grams of flour.
  • Use low-calorie plant-based milk, like unsweetened almond milk.

Use less milk if you cut back on ingredients, otherwise, it won’t bake as good.

Make Chocolate Protein Pancakes higher in calories

If you require more calories because you’re trying to bulk up or you’re just very hungry, here is what you can do:

  • Use more whole eggs
  • Add oats
  • Add more flour (bonus: it makes the substance ticker)
  • Add more cacao powder
  • Add peanut butter for healthy fats/ a lot of calories
  • Add cornflakes to the mix (maybe weird, but delicious)
  • You can substitute the (plant-based) milk with chocolate milk

Use more milk as you add more ingredients, otherwise, you can’t mix it all together properly.

Add more proteins to Chocolate Protein Pancakes

If you’re the kind of person that can’t have enough proteins ever, like any bodybuilding enthusiast, then this will add the most amount of proteins:

  • Add more egg-whites
  • Add protein powder
  • Add high-protein yogurt (keep it proportional, otherwise it won’t bake as good)
  • Add chia seeds

How to make Chocolate Protein Pancakes

Chocolate protein pancakes are easy and simple to bake. Here’s how:

  1. Take a big bowl and a hand mixer
  2. Crack the eggs, add the cottage cheese/ yogurt, and then add all other ingredients.
  3. Mix till smooth, while pre-heating a pan on maxed-out fire (I’m kind of impatient).
  4. Cover the pan with zero-calorie cooking spray, coconut oil, or extra virgin olive oil. Or use butter, but this is my least favorite.
  5. Change the heat to a medium setting, and pour in the chocolate protein pancake batter.
  6. Wait a couple of minutes till the first side is done, flip it over, and wait another couple of minutes before your delicious chocolate protein pancakes are done.
  7. Repeat till you’re completely out of chocolate protein pancake batter.

Pro tip: use multiple pans for an increase in speed.
