Would you love to eat Chocolate Cake for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner? I know that sounds crazy and not really practical since Chocolate Cake is loaded with fat and calories. I have found a healthy alternative that is just as satisfying as a big slice of Chocolate Cake and it is these - 2 Ingredient Chocolate Pancakes.
I made these Chocolate Protein Pancakes from scratch with only 2 magic ingredients. Ok, maybe they are not magic but it was so easy it felt magical.
What are the 2 Ingredients needed to make this Best Pancake Recipe?
You will need water and a box of Dark Chocolate Kodiak Cakes Mix.
Do I need Extra Protein?
Eating a Protein rich diet can help you lose weight as it makes you feel full with less food and therefore you will not overeat.
Protein is also the building block of your muscles, therefore eating adequate amounts of protein helps you maintain your muscle mass and promotes muscle growth when you do strength training.
Eating more protein can boost your metabolism. High protein intake has been shown to significantly increase the number of calories you burn. This can amount to 80-100 more calories burned each day.
So the answer is yes you should try to incorporate more protein into your diet.
How much protein should I eat daily?
For an active adult 10 percent of calories should come from protein.
Are you a Weight Watcher?
I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers and like to point all of my recipes. These simple chocolate protein pancakes are 6 smart points per serving which is equal to 3 four inch pancakes or flapjacks. WW recently changed to 3 separate plans so you can choose the plan that works best for you. I am following the Purple Plan. If you want to see the food list for each plan just click here.
How many Calories are in these Healthy Chocolate Protein Pancakes?
These healthy chocolate protein pancakes have only 190 calories per serving and 4 grams of fat.
What are some good toppings for my Flapjack Pancakes?
- Lily's Dark Chocolate Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
- Cool Whip Lite
- Raspberry Preserves
Can I Freeze my Leftover Pancakes?
You sure can just place them in a Ziplock Baggie and stick them in your freezer. When you are ready for a snack just take them out and warm them in the microwave for one minute.
What kitchen tools do I need for this Wholegrain Chocolate Pancake recipe?
- A large mixing bowl
- A Spatula
- A Cast Iron Skillet or Non Stick Pan or Griddle - I used a Cast Iron Skillet
Why are Cast Iron Skillets good for Cooking?
- Food cooks evenly in Cast Iron.
- Cast Iron pans require less oil.
- They act like non-stick pans when seasoned well
- They are tough and durable
- Cast Iron does not leach chemicals but it does leach a small amount of Iron into your food and that is a good thing as about 10% of women are iron deficient...another great bonus!
How do you Season a Cast Iron Skillet?
1: Scrub your skillet with hot soapy water.
2: Dry it thoroughly.
3: Spread a thin layer of melted shortening or vegetable oil over the skillet.
4: Place it upside down on middle oven rack at 375 Degrees F (Place foil on lower rack to catch any drips)
5: Bake 1 Hour; Let cool in the oven.
