So the other day, a Buzz Feed post popped up on my Facebook. It was a delectable looking pancake that involved a Nutella stuffed centre. Um... yes.
I don't have any Nutella. But many of you know that I do make a lot of pancakes. Ok--so they're protein pancakes. But I love them. I decided that I could easily come up with a similar creation. It may not be quite as delicious, but it would make for a better breakfast choice.
I often use a product called PB2. It's essentially dehydrated peanuts, leaving you with a powder that, when water is added, creates peanut butter. I love peanut butter on the regular, but it's easy to overdo it on the stuff. I.e. you go in for a taste and soon realize you've eaten half the jar with a spoon. When this happens, PB2 is a good alternative because it's reduced calorie, but still packed with flavour.
I whipped up a serving of chocolate PB2 and followed the video tutorial provided by Buzz Feed (very technical, with about 4 steps).
The result was my regular protein pancake with a delicious surprise inside! For instructions on how to make a protein pancake, see my post here.
Pour half of your batter into a greased pan (I've been using organic, grass-fed butter. Yum).
Add the PB2 (or Nutella if you want!) on top.
Pour in the other half of the batter (everything spreads out).
Cook and flip as usual (a little messy).
On another note...
I know my posts are a little less frequent these days. Life is a little crazy (but pretty awesome) with our wedding quickly approaching, keeping up with my nutrition course, and trying to remain sane during these final weeks of school. I promise to amp up the content come vacay! Thanks for all the love :)
