Chocolate Protein Guinness Pancakes

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you ready to start your holiday morning off with some Chocolate Protein Guinness Pancakes? This healthy breakfast recipe is easy to make and packed with enough chocolate flavor to beat even the biggest cravings!

The first thing you’ll need to do for this recipe is to make some homemade oat flour. To do this, add 1 cup of rolled oats into either a blender or food processor. Process or blend those until they look like flour.

Add your oat flour into a large mixing bowl with 2 scoops of a chocolate protein powder, 5 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 4 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1 large whole egg, 1 medium banana, 3/4 cup of Guinness, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 cup of fat free cottage cheese.

Did you know that cocoa powder has no sugar in it and is packed with 2 grams of fiber for every 10 calories?

Mix all of those chocolate protein Guinness pancakes ingredients together until smooth. I like using a hand mixer to speed this step up!

If your mix appears to be too thick you can add another 1-2 ounces of Guinness to your mix.

Take out a stovetop pan or griddle, turn your burner on medium heat, and coat whatever you’re using with some non-stick cooking spray.

Pour some of your chocolate protein Guinness pancakes mix into your pan or griddle and cook each side of your pancake(s) for around 2-3 minutes. You can make your pancakes whatever size you want just remember that your cooking time may change with the size of your pancake(s)!

Repeat those steps until all of your mix is gone.

Remove your pancakes from the heat and optionally top them. I topped mine with some green topping!

Green Topping

Make a healthier topping by mixing 6 tablespoons of fat free whipped topping and some green food coloring together.

    Would these come out well with almond milk instead of guiness?

    I tried out this recipe and had breakfast for a week! The pancakes were great, although a little dry (I’m not sure if I screwed something up). I ended up topping them with a layer of vanilla Greek yogurt every morning and it was awesome!

    I followed it exactly and came out with 9 pancakes. I could have easily destroyed all of these tasty suckers in one sitting, but left 3 for breakfast. Per your directions, I washed em down with some Guinness. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, and thanks for a new pancake recipe!

    Also of note, that sweet and spicy chicken and lentils recipe is the bomb. I’m looking forward to lunch leftovers the whole week. Thanks Derek.

      Haha! I love this man. I’m glad you liked them. I’m a huge fan of Guinness so this was a fun one for me. Thanks Jon!
