Protein Brownie Pancakes
These deliciously healthy, vegan, gluten-free brownie pancakes are the perfect healthy breakfast treat to enjoy with your family during the Holiday season, or to prep for a healthy breakfast throughout the week.
Dessert for breakfast? Always. I personally have such a sweet tooth in the mornings, and all I want for breakfast is something to knock those cravings and keep me full all the way to lunch. These pancakes are super tasty and are loaded with protein and nutrients to keep full for hours to come. I used the Plantfusion Complete Lean chocolate brownie protein powder in this recipe to give it the flavor of delicious chocolate brownies. The complete lean line of Plant Fusion is great because it supports blood sugar with 9g of prebiotic fiber combined with chromium and banaba leaf assist in the breakdown of sugars and carbohydrates, it curbs hunger with 21g of a unique protein called EcoLean™ that is sourced from a particular variety of yellow pea in Europe and was shown in scientific testing to curb hunger 35% better than whey, and it is certified Non-GMO, Gluten Free and Vegan as well as free of dairy, soy, rice, eggs, nuts, fish, tree nuts, shellfish, artificial flavors, and colors, is there such thing as a more perfect protein? I don't think so. You can get some through this link: https://plantfusion.com?p=H1XpJq84_

I also wanted to make this recipe gluten-free, because I find that when I make gluten-free recipes they keep me fuller for longer due to the higher fiber content. If you've followed me for awhile, you know that fiber is super important to me, and the number 1 thing that I would recommend everyone to eat more of (aka try my recipes!). I also like eating gluten-free, because I usually use a couple different flours which helps improve your gut microbiome because of the diversity of foods, which feed different bacteria, helping to improve your overall health and immunity. With all this being said I don't think wheat is bad for anyone except those with celiac or what not. I still enjoy wheat in my diet, but do enjoy mixing it up. Alright let's get to the recipe!
Total time: 20 Minutes
- 2 Ripe bananas
- 2 1/2 Cups oat flour
- 3 Tablespoon flax seeds with 6 tablespoons water
- 2 Tablespoons Cacao powder
- 3 Cups plant milk
- 2 Teaspoons vanilla
- 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
- 2 Teaspoons baking powder
Start by combining your ground flaxseeds and water together and setting aside until it reaches an egg texture.
Next mash your ripe bananas in a bowl until they are similar to applesauce in texture. Begin heating your nonstick skillet.
Combine the remaining ingredients together in the bowl with the mashed banana. Add the flax egg and mix until you get a smooth texture.
Scoop out your pancakes and cook on skillet. I always wait until I see lots of bubbles before flipping. Once both sides are cooked put on the plate and enjoy!
