Clean Carob Chip Protein Pancakes

I'm such a promise breaker! I posted a picture of these on my Instagram at the beginning of the week and I'm definitely late on getting you the recipe, but I think you'll forgive me once you try them! I ate them 3 days in a row and they are on the menu for Saturday morning breakfast tomorrow. I love when I come up with wonderfully delicious recipes just by throwing stuff together!! 

Ingredients
1/3 cup oat flour
1/4 cup Fage non fat Greek yogurt
2 egg whites
1 scoop Dymatize Iso 100 Protein Powder in Vanilla 
1 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp Sunspire unsweetened carob chips 
1/8 cup sugar free syrup for topping (if desired)


Directions
1. Mix all ingredients in large mixing bowl, adding carob chips in last. 
2. On a pre-heated, prepared skillet pour on about 1/3 of the mixture and cook about 2 minutes, then flip. You know they're ready to flip when they start to bubble. Recipe should make 3 medium sized pancakes. 
3. Drizzle with sugar free maple syrup, or your favorite topping.

  2. Hello whenever I see anything vegetarian I always send it to my mom. I'm eating clean and trying to get her to as well but often find it difficult to give her protein recipes. Do you have any suggestions besides protein powder recipes and fish (she eats a lot of fish)? I also want to thank you for this blog check it pretty much on a daily basis!! Thanks!!!!

    1. I'm not the best person in this department because I'm as far from a vegetarian as they come! But, cottage cheese and greek yogurt are great protein sources, as well as non-GMO soy products. You may also want to look into the Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian book!

  3. What kind of sugar-free syrup do you use? Is it sweetened with stevia?

  7. Are carob chips similar tasting to chocolate? As far as a hint of sweetness? Or is it far more bitter?
