Today, I decided that it has been too long since I have had a stack of delicious protein pancakes. Of course, for me, a long time is about two weeks. I kind of start to go through withdrawals when I don’t have my pancakes. Not literally, but I was really craving some pancakes. Especially some chocolate brownie protein pancakes.
There are two reasons that I decided to go with chocolate brownie flavored pancakes for this recipe. The first one is pretty obvious. I love brownies and pretty much anything chocolate flavored. The second reason is that I recently got a generous package of goodies from MusclePharm and they included some of their new chocolate brownie combat protein bars. The bars are pretty awesome in case you were wondering!
The pancakes are made with chocolate milk combat powder. Pretty much everything about them were chocolate. I topped them with some chocolate brownie SweetSpreads coconut butter and some melted Amber Lyn sugar free milk chocolate. After all of that, I cut up part of a chocolate brownie combat bar and added it on. If you love chocolate, these are definitely the perfect pancakes for you!
