Ingredients

  • 25g coconut flour
  • 25g chocolate flavour whey or rice protein powder
  • 30g whole porridge oats (use gluten free oats if preferred)
  • 2 medium sized eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp stevia (or natural sweetener of your choice)
  • 20g dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa), grated
  • 15g crunchy peanut butter (no added sugar)
  • 10g coconut oil

Directions

  • Put all of the ingredients except for the oil into a blender and mix together. Add a dash of water if necessary to achieve the right consistency. The mixture should be quite thick yet runny enough to pour.
  • Heat some of the coconut oil in a large non-stick pan over a medium/high heat. Pour one quarter of the mixture into the centre of the pan.
  • Move the pan around gently to even out the mixture into a circular shape. When small holes appear in the pancake (around 1-2 minutes), turn or flip it over and cook on the other side for 1-2 minutes.
  • Transfer pancake to a plate. Add more oil to the pan and repeat the process four times with the remaining batter.
