I am always looking for some creative ways to make my muscle-building “diet” food taste better, and as a college student my resources can be limited. I’ve looked up many healthy pancake recipes in the past, but none of them have ever met my nutritional needs. Some of the recipes had great nutritional value but tasted like crap, while others tasted amazing but had way too many calories.
I decided to take up the challenge on my own and find a healthy blend of both. That’s when I came up with these Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes (say that three times fast). After a lot of trial and error, I think I’ve finally perfected my recipe. Learn to make them in the video below and be sure to let me know what you think of them in the comments.
- ½ Cup Old Fashion Oats
- ½ Scoop Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Powder
- 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- 6 Tbsp. Egg White, or 2 Servings
- 2 Tbsp. PB2
- Combine all ingredients into a medium size bowl, mix.
- Pour pancake batter onto a griddle or pan over medium heat. Spray the pan lightly.
- Once small bubbles begin to appear, flip the pancake on to other side
- Remove from pan and start seeing big muscle gains

Of course, if all the protein isn’t for you, there are also simple recipes for banana pancakes and other breakfast foods that might make it a little more exciting to get up for class in the morning. Enjoy.
