  • Store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month. Remove and reheat when ready to enjoy.

Additional Tips:

  • Don’t have a blender? Replace the rolled oats in these chocolate protein hotcakes with oat flour, or place your whole oats in a spice grinder to make your own flour. Mash the banana with a fork and mix in all the remaining ingredeints. Ensure not to overmix too much when using wheat flour.
  • Use Phyto Pro Thrive Vanilla Protein Powder for a vanilla-flavoured version of these Protein Hotcakes.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of Plant Food Raw Cacao Powder for a deeper chocolate taste.
  • Replace the banana with avo or cooked butternut and pumpkin for different flavours.
  • Superfood TwistAdd 2 teaspoons of Plant Food Organic Baobab Fruit Powder or Plant Food Yellow Maca Root Powder to the blender.
  • For Extra Protein: Add 1 tablespoon of Plant Food Hemp Heart Seeds to the Chocolate Protein Pancake batter.
  • Bonus Recipe: Make a quick berry or fruit compote by blending ½ cup fresh fruit with ½ cup of water, add 1 tablespoon of Plant Food Chia Seeds and allow to stand for 3 minutes before serving. We love using fresh blueberries or blackberries!
