Decadent Dark Chocolate Protein Pancakes made Gluten-free and Sugar-free!

Ingredients

  • 1 c gluten-free oat flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened special dark cocoa powder
  • 32g chocolate protein powder (I used PEScience 30% OFF code PBCHOCO)
  • 2 eggs, whole

    Toppings:
  • fresh fruit
  • maple syrup
  • chocolate powdered peanut butter sauce (powdered peanut butter + stevia + water until you have reached your desired consistency)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients. Add in remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth. If batter is too thick add more almond milk (this will change depending on the type of protein powder you use).
  2. Let batter sit for 3-5 minutes. While batter is resting, prepare a griddle, pancake pan or frying pan with non-stick spray and turn on medium-low heat. Once pan is hot, cook pancakes 1/4 c at a time. Flip pancakes once bubbles pop. Continue this until until you have used all the batter. Recipe should make about 7-8 4" pancakes.
  3. Serve immediately.

Healthy Cookie Butter and Marshmallow Fluff Sandwiched Between Two Crispy Protein Shortbread Cookies and then Dipped in Chocolate!

Ingredients

    Shortbread Cookies
  • 64g vanilla protein powder (I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla 30% off code PBCHOCO)
  • 1/2 c almond flour, finely ground
  • 1/2 c brown rice flour
  • 2 tbsp. light butter, melted
  • 1-2 tbsp water
    Marshmallow Fluff
  • 1 c mini marshmallows (I used Dandies)
  • 1 tsp sugar-free maple syrup
    Other
  • 10 tsp cookie butter (I used Nuts 'N More )
  • 1/3 c sugar-free chocolate
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place all of your shortbread ingredients into a mixer and mix using a paddle attachment until a dough forms. If dough is too dry, add another tablespoon of water.
  3. Roll out dough until it's about 1/8 inch thick (I used more brown rice flour for dusting) and cut out cookies using a 2" inch round cookie cutter or a lid to a spice container. Roll out remaining dough and cut out more cookies until you have no more dough left. Recipe should make about 20 cookies.
  4. Place the cut out cookie dough onto the baking sheet and bake for 8-11 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  5. Once the cookies are cooled, place the marshmallows into a double boiler (glass bowl over a small pot of water on medium heat) until the marshmallows start to melt. Stir until just small clumps are left. Add in the sugar-free maple syrup and continue mixing until smooth. Marshmallow fluff will still be very sticky. Turn heat down to low while you spread fluff onto 10 of the cookies.
  6. On the remaining cookies, spread 1 teaspoon of cookie butter in an even layer then press the cookies together to make a cookie butter, marshmallow sandwich.
  7. In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil together until smooth. Dip each cookie sandwich into the chocolate until completely covered and let the excess drip off. Place it back on the parchment paper. Repeat until you have covered each cookie sandwich in chocolate. Place all the moon pies in the freezer for 20 minutes for chocolate to set before serving.

Notes

For vegan use vegan butter, dairy-free chocolate chips and protein powder.

Healthy Chocolate Coconut Covered Date Candies

 

Healthy Chocolate Coconut Covered Date Candies made vegan, gluten-free and made using only 6 ingredients!

 


 

I would probably say about 98% of all the recipes I pin on Pinterest never get made or even get a second look at but there was one recipe I stumbled on a few weeks ago and I just couldn’t get it out of my head.  Today, I finally decided to make this recipe–kind of. I changed it up a bit and since my scale was suddenly broken when I went to measure my ingredients (the original recipe is listed in grams) I had to just wing it. And for winging it, I have to say these tasty treats turned out pretty amazing. So amazing that I ate two before I went to the gym and two right when I got home from the gym! I hope to control myself for the rest of the evening.

 

 

The original recipe that I adapted mine from was found on Fanny The Foodie blog along with a million other delicious looking recipes that I hope to try soon!  She called hers “Healthy Lamington Bites” and as cool as that sounds, I don’t know what the heck that is! Until the day I travel to Australia and have a lamington bite for myself, I’ll call them Healthy Chocolate Coconut Covered Date Candies. 🙂

 

I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select protein in this recipe. Get 30% off all products using code PBCHOCO.

  4. Remove dough from the freezer and cut into 9 evenly sized squares. Dip each square into the chocolate using a fork and let the excess chocolate drip off before placing the chocolate covered square into the desiccated coconut, rolling it around until it's completely covered.

  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or a cool place.

This matcha glaze not only tastes amazing, it’s also amazing for you! Double win!
