Protein Pancakes with Tiramisu (Vegan)

Okay, maybe I shouldn’t say things like that, but bear with me since I’m sure you never imagined Vegan Pancakes could taste this tasty!

So, of course, I ordered it right away. Which is ironic considering I used to despise coffee (or coffee-flavored) products. However, I’ve recently developed a taste for that additional “savory” note. As a result, mocha protein powder has piqued my interest.

With the use of whipped up yogurt, I was able to make the pancakes chocolatey, mocha-y (with a hint of rum!) and the luscious creamy layers rich and healthful.

Super decadent, super tasty, and super nutritious! And, of course, because I used Vega for the protein powder, these protein pancakes are completely vegan!

Protein Pancakes with Tiramisu (Vegan)

365 calories per serving (5), 6 grams of fat, 50 grams of net carbohydrates, 6 grams of sugars, and 26 grams of protein

Pancakes:

2 scoops Vega Sport Protein Powder with Mocha Flavor

4 TBSP Psyllium Husks (Whole) (or 8 TBSP Ground Flax Seeds)

Almond Milk, 4 CUP

2 tablespoons rum extract

2 cups flour (gluten-free flour, such Bob’s Red Mill)

4 TBSP Cacao powder

1 TBSP Espresso Powder (instant)

a quarter teaspoon of baking powder

Creme:

3 cups plain yogurt (soy or coconut)

Stevia Extract, 2 tsp

Spray (non-stick)

Optional Additional Toppings:

Chocolate Syrup with No Sugar

Strawberries

Combine the psyllium husks, almond milk, and rum essence in a small dish. All ingredients in a mixing bowl and let aside for a few minutes (the mixture should thicken up and become slightly gelatinous).

Combine dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl (protein powder, flour, cacao, espresso, baking powder). Mix in the wet mixture with a spoon, being careful not to overmix. It should be thick, but if it’s too dry, a splash of almond milk can be added.

On medium-low heat, heat a small pan. Coat the pan with nonstick spray and add 1/3 cup of pancake batter at a time. Cook for several minutes, or until the sides of the pancake firm up, covered with a lid. Cook for a few more minutes on the other side. Continue with the remaining batter.

Combine the yogurt and the stevia sweetener in a mixing bowl (you could also just opt for a sweetened vanilla yogurt).

Top each pancake with a dollop of yogurt and, if preferred, more chocolate syrup and strawberries.

Get those gains while enjoying your healthy protein pancake splurge (particularly on National Pancake Day)!
