Your next pancake Sunday sorted! Healthy Luxe has created these delicious chocolate protein pancakes using just 5 key ingredients – they're so quick and easy to prepare.
To boost the nutritional content and flavour, she's included a scoop of Amazonia's Raw Protein Isolate in Choc Coconut. This certified organic sprouted and fermented plant protein contains a complete amino acid profile plus Zinc, Phosphorous and up to 99% RDI Iron. It's been specially formulated to support lean muscle repair and growth and is gentle on digestion with highly bioavailable plant-based digestive enzymes.
To make this recipe vegan friendly, you can swap eggs for chia eggs. It's simple – just 1 tbsp chia seeds + 2.5 Tbsp water = a chia egg. Remember to let the mixture sit for a few minutes so it reaches the right consistency before adding to the batter.
