Chocolate Protein Hotcakes

We think these Chocolate Protein Hotcakes are the perfect breakfast-in-bed start to the weekend. Now to find someone to get out of bed to make them!

Phyto Pro THRIVE Chocolate mixed with oats and banana make for a delicious, nutritious and filling breakfast (or anytime) meal!

Prep. Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Servings: 6-8 medium hotcakes


  • 1 cup of rolled oats (or alternatively gluten-free oats)
  • 1 medium-sized ripe banana, peeled
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or any milk substitute of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup of Phyto Pro THRIVE Chocolate protein powder
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of himalayan salt


  • Place all ingredients in a blender.
  • Blend until it comes to a smooth thick liquid.
  • Preheat a nonstick baking pan, add oil for a more crispier exterior.
  • Pour 2 tbsp of the batter into the pan, cook on a low-medium heat for a few minutes until bubbles start appearing on the surface
  • Flip over and cook for another few minutes, until golden brown.
  • Repeat for the rest of the batter.


  • Don’t have a blender? Replace the rolled oats 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 version of these Chocolate Protein Hotcakes.
  • Store the leftover in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month. Remove and reheat when ready to enjoy.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of Phyto Pro Raw Cacao Powder for a deeper chocolate taste.
  • Replace the banana with avo or cooked butternut and pumpkin for different flavours.
  • Add a Superfood twist: Add 2 teaspoons of Phyto Pro Baobab Fruit Powder or Phyto Pro Maca Root Powder to the blender.
  • For extra protein, add 1 tablespoon of Phyto Pro Hemp Heart Seeds to the mix.
  • Bonus recipe: Make a quick berry or fruit compote by blending ½ cup fresh fruit with ½ cup of water, add 1 tablespoon of Phyto Pro Chia Seeds and allow to stand for 3 minutes before serving. We love using fresh blueberries or blackberries!
