Question: What is better than chocolate and peanut butter?
Answer: Nothing. Nothing is better than chocolate and peanut butter. It’s pretty much the best food combination ever invented. Ever.
I realize that protein pancakes have been around forever and I am a little late jumping on the protein pancake bandwagon, but it seems like I’m that way with many things. The important thing is that I have finally discovered the goodness that is protein pancakes.
I was always worried that they would taste too “eggy”, but they don’t. I have made them with oats and without oats and neither version tastes too eggy, although I prefer the version with oats.
I decided to experiment a bit in the kitchen this morning and came up with a delicious chocolate peanut butter protein pancake recipe.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes Serves: 1
1/4 cups oats (I used Quaker Oats Perfect Portions)
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 egg whites
- approx. 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder (I used one packet of Cellucor chocolate protein powder)
- 2 tbsp. PB2
- Mix oats and water in a bowl. Microwave approx. 1 minute.
- Whisk in egg whites, protein powder, and PB2.
- Cook on a hot pan for approx. 2-3 minutes per side.
- Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!

I topped my pancakes with organic blue agave maple syrup and blueberries.
- Women on Weights Class – 45 minutes (core and legs)
I pretty sure my legs are dead. After doing BodyPump two days in a row and working on legs in women on weights class today, I can no longer move my legs.
Post workout, I had my last cookies and cream Quest bar.
I have to stop by GNC and pick some more of these up. I also want to get a few of the cookie dough flavor, but last time I was there, they weren’t in stock.
Yesterday for lunch, I used up some tilapia taco mix that I had from Whole Foods.
It was so delicious that I was still thinking about tacos today. Luckily, I had the ingredients at home to whip up my own fish tacos.
I used Mahi Mahi, red and green pepper, red onions, and Mrs. Dash salt free taco seasoning. I topped the tacos with mango salsa from Whole Foods. The salsa is really good, but so spicy. I try to pick around the hot peppers.
Mexican food is my all time favorite. I could eat it every single day.
Have a great afternoon!
What food could you eat every day and not get sick of it? I could eat tacos and chocolate
