Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

Oh yeah, you read that right!

I told you you hadn’t seen the last of the mint!

We can’t be letting the parfaits have all the fun now, can we? 😉

Just like the mouth-watering layer of mint and cream that was a breakfast highlight of mine for not one, not two, but THREE breakfasts over the last couple of weeks, these pancakes are now my newest mint obsession!

Especially when drizzled with my HEALTHY chocolate sauce!

Nutritional stats including 1/2 tablespoon chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon of “cream”
(fat-free ricotta), and healthy chocolate sauce!

All under 400 calories with 35g of protein AND 11g of fiber!

Feel free to use any “cream” of choice…cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, or even a non-dairy alternative…but please don’t leave it out!

Because where’s the fun in eating cookies for breakfast without a little cream in the middle?…or um, smashed and stirred around to make one big chocolately creamy mess on top!

I won’t tell anyone if you lick the plate when you’re done! 😉

Happy Pancake Sunday!

How are you celebrating the last day of the weekend?
