Recipe: Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

I'm bummed that Christmas is over, but consoling myself with a Christmas morning-worthy breakfast definitely doesn't hurt!

Since pure indulgence can't be an all-the-time thing without making you feel sluggish and sick, here's a breakfast recipe featuring Vega One, a vegan protein powder that's a veritable nutrition powerhouse with antioxidants, probiotics, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and maca all in one.

These pancakes only taste indulgent!

Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes
Serves 2

* 2 scoops Vega One French Vanilla
* 4 Tbsp. Old Fashioned Oats
* 2 Tbsp coconut sugar
* 1 tsp. baking powder
* 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
* 1/8 of salt
* 1 mashed ripe banana
* 1.5 Tbsp. coconut oil
* 1/3 c. soy milk
* 1 tsp. vanilla extract
* 1/3 c. dairy-free semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips

* Oil for cooking

1) Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, mix well.

2) Combine the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a medium sized mixing bowl, mix well.

3) Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix until combined (but don't overmix).

4) Mix in the mini chocolate chips.

5) Warm oil over medium-high heat in a cast iron skillet pan.

6) Ladle batter into the hot oil.

7) Cook for ~3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

8) Serve warm!

If you need an extra dose of post-Christmas pick-me-up, garnish with fresh berries and coconut cream. It will be impossible not to smile!
