protein chocolate pancakeAs it’s officially Shrove Tuesday today, I thought I’d give you a little recipe which is not only filling and healthy, but also fat-burning too!


For those of you who like me, are following a clean eating lifestyle nowadays, you’ll be pleased to know that even though you may be saying ‘no’ to preservatives, sugar and sweet treats, there’s no reason you can’t have a pancake on Pancake Day, so here goes:



2 eggs

2 scoops of protein powder (I’ve used Sunwarrior Protein – Chocolate flavour here)

dash of water

teaspoon of coconut oil



  1. Whisk eggs in a mixing bowl
  2. Add the scoops of protein powder and a dash of water
  3. Combine the ingredients together so they form pancake consisitency (you may need to add a little more water, for example)
  4. Melt coconut oil in fry pan
  5. Pour pancake mix in pan and fry for 2-3 minutes
  6. Once your pancake starts to show air bubbles, pop pan under the grill to crisp up the top



If you’d like to add some ‘clean’ chocolate sauce and/or fruit like that displayed in the picture, here’s what you need to do:


  1. Melt 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil in a pyrex bowl, over a saucepan of water
  2. Add 2 Tablespoons of Organic cocoa powder (I use Green and Blacks because it’s readily available from most supermarkets)
  3. Add a dash of Organic honey (or your choice of clean sweetener)
  4. Stir ingredients together until desired ‘sauce’ consistency



  1. Chop a selection of fruit (low sugar fruits include: berries and cherries)
  2. Warm them through in a fry/saucepan
  3. Serve with pancake and/or with chocolate sauce above


TIP – For best fat-burning results, eat this after your workout!
