I always consider and refer to myself as a 'savoury person', so the thought of baking or making sweet treats doesn't usually appeal to me... however, I have recently embarked on a self made life makeover challenge including eating a paleo-based diet (I've documented every day how I feel on my YouTube channel which you can see here). With this new way of eating, I have found myself craving bread-like foods (not sure if that makes sense, but in my head it sounds right), so, the idea of having some bread-ish fluffy pancakes all of a sudden sounded like the best idea. I've used Clean Lean Choc powder in this recipe, which is a healthy chocolate powder full of the good stuff! Perfect for when you want that chocolate-y flavour but still want to kick your health goals.
1/4 cup of almond meal
1/4 cup of coconut flour
2 teaspoons of Clean Lean Choc (purchase here - Use code GS10 for $$ off)
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of honey
1/4 cup of coconut milk
Combine dry ingredients in one bowl
Mix wet ingredients in another bowl or if you have a NutriBullet or another blender type thing use that instead (that's what I do and it makes everything so much easier)
Mix dry and wet ingredients and mix until combined (If you want your mixture more runny to have thinner pancakes, simply add more coconut milk until you get the desired consistency)
Heat a pan on a medium heat with coconut or olive oil and cook pancakes for a few minutes on each side (cooking time will depend on how think you make your pancakes)
Serve with some fresh fruit, honey, maple syrup, fresh lemon juice, yogurt... whatever you feel like!
*Note: you can sub Clean Lean Choc for regular cacao powder, you may just need to add a little extra sweetener.
With no refined sugar, only five ingredients and being vegan friendly, these protein balls will be lucky to last a few minutes in anyones household! You can change the flavour depending on what flavour protein you use and by subbing out the cacao for a different flavour. I've used cacao and salted caramel in these photos to get two different flavours and they were both amazing!
