Chocolate Coconut Protein Pancakes

It has been a long time since I've revisited these flavors, and decided to give my original recipe an upgrade. Both versions are delicious!

Chocolate Coconut Protein Pancakes


1/2 cup cauliflower, finely chopped (use your food processor)
3/4 scoop Cellucor Molten Chocolate protein powder (or any chocolate whey protein)
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk
1 tablespoon reduced-fat coconut flakes
2 tablespoons cottage cheese
3 tablespoons egg whites
8-10 drops coconut stevia (or regular stevia)
Almond milk as needed


1. Place cauliflower in the microwave. Cook for 40 seconds.
2. Meanwhile, heat a nonstick pan coated with cooking spray over medium heat.
3. Add the remaining ingredients (protein powder through stevia) to your food processor. Blend until smooth. Add almond milk as needed (add SLOWLY). You want your pancake batter to be thick.
4. Add the batter by the spoonful to the pan. Cook until the edges set. These are thick so be patient! Flip and cook another 3-4 minutes on the other side, or until cooked through.

Top with more coconut flakes if you'd like. I layered mine with almond butter and stevia sweetened Greek yogurt!

I buy my psyllium husk, coconut flakes, coconut stevia, and flours from Vitacost. They have the best prices and everything is delivered right to my door! Here's a link for a discount off your first order!
