The irresistible aroma of pancakes might bring you back to those childhood days of lounging around on weekend mornings watching cartoons.

That’s where our Chocolate Chip Workout Pancakes come in handy.

Not only healthy, these drool-worthy chocolate chip pancakes can also support your fitness goals! This recipe packs a major protein punch, thanks to the scoop of vanilla protein powder added to the mix. Protein is an essential nutrient that can help you power through high intensity workouts and achieve great results. These pancakes use clean eating ingredients like bananas, a superfood rich in fast-acting carbohydrates and potassium, which can fuel a major workout.

The guilt-free delights also call for almond flour, a healthier alternative to white flour that’s bursting with vitamins and nutrients. So what are you waiting for? Whip up a stack of these moist, chocolatey delights before hitting the gym- they’ll be your secret weapon to fire through even the toughest workout!
