I just counted, and I have 7 different pancake recipes up in my blog. And I have at least the same amount written down on post-its and waiting to be on the blog soon.
Why so many? The answer is pretty simple. I often make pancakes on Sunday mornings, and since I usually do my weekly shopping on Sunday evenings, I often have run out of an ingredient, so I just replace it with something different, and voila – a new recipe is born. Usually, it works out well (there have been some disasters too, but these will definitely not be featured anywhere)! These chocolatey pancakes are a big success, and I have made these many times by now. As a bonus, the cottage cheese gives these pancakes an extra boost of protein compared to “regular” pancakes. If you want the pancake recipe to be dairy-free, you can substitute the cottage cheese with a vegan yogurt instead.
To serve, I recommend strawberries, but if they are not in season, I would instead add something else. Mango is very lovely, for example, and if you are a real chocoholic and feel extra indulgent, then chocolate sauce would be a good addition.
High-Protein Chocolate Pancakes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
5 oz cottage cheese (dairy-free substitute: vegan yogurt)
2 organic eggs (vegan substitute: whipped tofu or mashed bananas)
2 oz all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
1 oz unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp agave syrup
0.5 cup water
Coconut oil for frying
Strawberries to serve
Mix the cottage cheese and eggs with the stick blender.
Add the flour, a tiny bit of salt, cocoa powder, agave, and blend them all together.
As the last ingredients, add water, but not all of it once – flours can be different, and maybe you do not need all of it.
If you are happy with the batter consistency, fry the pancakes on medium heat until they are crispy from both sides.
