We all know that mums put everyone but themselves first, with diet, exercise and “you-time” often going out the window. At Be Fit Food, our priority is to improve health and wellness by providing healthy and convenient meals and support.
That’s why we’ve put a healthy twist on the traditional “breakfast in bed” for Mother’s Day with this recipe for delicious and healthy Chocolate Protein Pancakes!
BFF Choc Protein Pancakes
Serves 2 BFF Dietitian: Laura Ballantyne
30g Be Fit Chocolate Protein Booster
40g rolled oats
1 large egg
20g Chobani 0.5% Plain Greek Yoghurt
50ml unsweetened almond milk
½ teaspoon baking powder
1½ teaspoons coconut oil
½ cup blueberries
4 teaspoons Chobani 0.5% Plain Greek Yoghurt
Place the oats in a food processor and pulse until it resembles a powdery consistency.
Add the protein powder, egg, yoghurt, almond milk, stevia, baking powder and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to the oats in the food processor. Combine for approximately 30 seconds until smooth.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Use some of the leftover ½ teaspoon coconut oil to coat the pan. When oil is melted, spoon 50g of the mixture (this will make two pancakes per serve), or 25g of the mixture (this will make four pikelets per serve) into the pan. Cook each side for approximately 2 minutes, or until golden.
Repeat the last step until all pancakes are cooked.
To serve, place two pancakes or four pikelets on each plate. Top each stack with 2 teaspoons of yoghurt and ¼ cup blueberries.
