Dark Chocolate Protein Pancakes with Peanut Butter Syrup


Are you looking for a delicious meal or snack that doesn't blow your calorie budget or your macros and also gives you a nice little dose of protein? I'm almost hesitant to call this a "recipe," since it's more of a hack than an actual recipe. It's so easy, so delicious, and inspired by a text from my sister with her version that I just wanted to make a little lower in fat and calories for my personal goals.

You'll need only three ingredients, four if you count water:

Mix 53g (1/2 c) of Kodiak mix with 1/2 c of water and make according to package directions (basically pour it in a skillet and flip it--you know how to make a pancake).


While your pancake is cooking, mix 1 T. PB2 with 2 T. Walden Farms syrup.


Take that chocolate pancake out of the skillet when it's done cooking, and drizzle the peanut butter syrup over your pancake, or just dip your pancake in it. Whatever, man. You do you.


All of this tasty goodness comes in at 220 calories, 33 grams of carbohydrate, 5 grams of fat, and 18 grams of protein. Need more protein? The directions on Kodiak give instructions for boosting it. Don't have PB2 on hand and don't mind a smidge more fat and calories? Add 1 T. milk to 1/2 T regular peanut butter, microwave 10 seconds, and stir until smooth to make your peanut butter syrup (this was my sister's suggestion). If you try it, let me know! I totally feel like I cheated, but my calories and macros are in check, and I got a nice dose of protein, too!
