So I’m dating this guy that I sometimes refer to as The Hulk.
He likes to do crazy things like Bootcamp (aka CrossFit, aka death) and pound protein shakes. I just smile and nod.
One day, while scrounging through his fridge and pantry (read: peanut butter, bread, salsa, and expired spices – TOTAL man kitchen), I found his protein stash and asked if I could use some to bake sometime. I’ve always wanted to. It’s so… trendy. So, he got this little handy dandy single-serving package for me.
And let me just tell you. These bad boys are fluffy. These are some seriously fluffy pancakes. I whipped up this little recipe sans inspiration, just totally going off the notion of “What contains lots of protein?” and throwing it in a bowl. And, luckily, it formed these delectables.
While I wasn’t exactly deserving of these pancakes (ahem, meaning that I haven’t seen the inside of the gym in about 3 weeks), I will be remaking these once I am deserving, especially if he convinces me to join him in his crazy Bootcamp shenanigans. We shall see..
Protein-Packed Chocolate Pancakes

1 tbsp whole wheat flour
1/8 c plain Greek yogurt
1/4 c plain almond milk
1 egg white
1. Combine all in a bowl.
2. In a sprayed skillet, spoon pancake-sized portion of batter and cook on medium heat. Flip when bubbles form or when cooked on underneath. Add blueberries into batter if desired.
