Rich, moist, dense, chocolatey, fudgy goodness. This baked good can’t decide if it’s a brownie or a cake, but it is clearly delicious no matter what you call it! This recipe is a no-fail crowd-pleaser every time and a Golden Graham Family favorite. I hope it quickly becomes a favourite in your family, too!
Chocolate for breakfast is a good idea. Peanut butter for breakfast is a good idea. Protein pancakes? Well, they sound like a good idea. But it’s one of those ideas that often seems better in theory than in practice. But when the pancakes are perfectly moist, fluffy and flavorful – then they are a GREAT idea. And I promise you that these pancakes are perfectly chocolatey, with just the right touch of sweetness and a subtle hint of peanut butter to complement the chocolate. You’d never guess that they’re good for you or that they boast a whopping 42g of protein per serving and yet are lower in fat, carbohydrates and calories than traditional pancakes! They’re even gluten free! Miracle of miracles – how is this possible?
This high-protein pick-me-up boasts the rich and robust flavors of coffee and dark chocolate, perfectly balanced by the creaminess of natural peanut butter. I like to make it part of my pre- or post-workout meal for those early-morning workouts, but it’s great any time of the day or night that you need a little added boost of energy. It’s an easy and healthy recipe you can whip up in the blender and enjoy as part of a leisurely breakfast ritual or throw in a to-go cup for rushed meals on-the-run.
