Vegan chocolate protein pancakes

Scroll down to content

Arrowroot is the magical ingredient holding these cakes together!  The flax egg helps to bind, but arrowroot and flax together is perfect here.  I found a pancake recipe a long time ago that I liked, but I wanted to replace the egg and make it vegan.  After too many bowls of pancake pudding, I have found the answer:

Vegan protein pancakes: 

(1 serving)

1/4 cup vegan protein powder of choice (I used hemp protein)

1 T coconut flour

1 T arrowroot starch

2 T cocoa powder, if your protein powder is not chocolate (I had super dark)

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 banana, mashed

1 flax egg (1 T flaxseed meal whisked with 2 1/2 T water)

6 T- 1/2 cup water, added by the Tablespoon as needed

2 tsp maple syrup, or sweetener of choice to taste if your protein powder is unsweetened

Method: 

  1.  Whisk 1 T flaxseed meal with 2 1/2 T water in a bowl and set aside to congeal for 5 minutes.  Then mash 1/2 banana in the bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, adding the water last as needed and stirring until combined. The batter will be thick
  2. Heat a skillet over low- medium heat and lightly coat it with oil. Once hot enough, add the batter to the pan with a 1/4 measuring cup, flattening slightly.  Add blueberries or slices of fruit on top
  3.   Flip carefully once the edges look dry or bubbles appear, cooking for an additional 2 minutes.  Repeat with the rest of the batter
  4. Smother pancakes in nut butter, top with coconut bacon (recipe under Sides and Dinner dreams) and drizzle with maple syrup.  This is my spirit non animal
