Healthy Chocolate + Cherry Protein Pancakes (gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free)

Healthy Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate + Cherry Pancakes
My husband Kyle & I enjoyed a fresh homemade batch of these on our 2nd wedding anniversary. :) I improvised this recipe and it came out awesome, fluffy, light, and fulfilling. Enjoy, inshaAllah.

Wet Ingredients
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
    • if using store-bought almond milk, use a brand that does not have 'carrageenan' in it, as this destroys the interested
    • you can use water if you don't have almond milk or have a nut allergy
Dry Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (we used SunWarrior vegan protein powder, you can substitute an additional 1/4 cup oatmeal + 1 teaspoon chia seeds)
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut flour (you can substitute 1 tablespoon of cinnamon if you don't have coconut flour)
  • 1 shake non aluminum baking soda
Topping Ingredients

  • Enjoy Life Brand dark chocolate chunks
  • Cherries
  • Cinnamon Powder


Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, blend the wet ingredients until mixed
  2. Add the dry ingredients and blend again until mixed
  3. Heat your pan until hot
  4. Add a little bit of coconut oil to pan and wipe any excess with paper towel
  5. Pour mixture into pan the way you would with any other pancake mix.
  6. Lower your heat on your pan when not in use between making pancakes and wipe your pan in between if you begin to see black debris
  7. Keep the cooked pancakes in a warm covered plate while you finish all batches
  8. When all pancakes have been cooked, plate them and add cherries, chocolate, and cinnamon
  9. Enjoy, inshaAllah (Godwilling)
