Whole wheat peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes are like dessert for breakfast! This fluffy, doughy and moist stack is what pancake dreams are made of!
So….breakfast this weekend.
I got you covered.
No need to wake up Saturday or Sunday morning and think of what “special” thing to make because you finally have more than 5 minutes to shove it down your throat before getting out the door.
Did you know it was pancake week?
Of course you did. You’ve probably read it at least 100 times over like I have, bookmarked at least 10 delicious pancake recipes (you can see all 25+ of mine there!) to try out and wondered what the hell this whole Shrove thing was, right?
Or is that just me?
Totally had never even heard the word “shrove” until this week, reinforcing what a good Catholic I am I’m not.
It’s almost a stretch even calling these pancakes because they taste like straight up dessert.
There’s peanut butter and chocolate chips in them and on top. They remind me of a more decadent version of these sweet potato chocolate chip pancakes.
Orange juice will not suffice alongside, you’re going to want to pour yourself a glass of milk instead.
And just in case you’re struggling with some post meal guilt after these lovelies (which you really shouldn’t be because hey, they’re whole wheat and packed with protein!)…
All can be erased by eating an entire sheet pan of roasted vegetables for dinner.
Not that I’d know anything about that.
Side note – if you want two great protein packed pancake recipes try these protein pancakes and these pumpkin protein pancakes. They’re sure to keep you satisfied for hours with the amount of healthy protein in those guys!
These pineapple buckwheat pancakes are also a great non-traditional protein protein pancake option with some sneaky cottage cheese in that recipe.
Enjoy! Unless you’re one of those people that gave up chocolate for lent (fools…kidding!).
Only 38 more days…
