Ingredients:1 package Zemas Gluten-Free Cocoa Teff Pancake & Waffle mix
2-3 servings or (1/3 c.) chocolate protein powder (choose one that is safe for you)**
1 t. baking powder
2 ¾ c. milk of choice (we used unsweetened chocolate almond milk)
1 egg (or egg replacer)
¼ c. + 3 T. oil of choice
½ c. pure maple syrup
1 t. pure vanilla extract
Peanut Butter Maple Syrup:
1/3 c. pure maple syrup
½ c. natural peanut butter(no added sugar or oil)*
Heat griddle over medium heat.
Spray with non-stick spray just before cooking.
Whisk together all wet ingredients.
Add entire mix, protein powder and baking powder and combine.
Ladle 1/4 c. batter onto hot griddle. Cook 3-5 minutes on the first side, or until you see bubbles. Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. (The added protein lends to a denser pancake).
Combine syrup and peanut butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until well combined.
Drizzle over the finished pancakes and sprinkle with chopped peanuts!
