This chocolate protein pancake recipe tastes like dessert for breakfast. And to “top it off”, there’s a big scoop of creamy peanut butter icing on top. It’s super delicious and will keep you full for a while.

This low-fat recipe uses powdered peanut butter which has 1.5g of fat in 2 tablespoons! Peanut butter has 16g. I love peanut butter, and it’s a healthy fat. But it’s still fat, and if I want to consume less then sometimes I’ll go for the powdered version so I can still enjoy the flavor.

You can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter for breakfast. Why deprive yourself?

OK, let’s get started.

Put 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, egg whites and almond milk in a bowl.

Add 5 drops of natural chocolate sweetener.
