1 Stack499 cals

Are you ready to eat your favorite Italian dessert for breakfast!? These Tiramisu Protein Pancakes take just minutes to prep, come with a frosting, and are a great healthy alternative to tiramisu! This delicious and high protein pancake recipe is guaranteed to satisfy.

To fully incorporate all of your ingredients you’re going to need either a blender or food processor for this one. If you don’t have either, here’s a link to my affordable food processor that I’ve used for over a decade!

Tiramisu Protein Pancakes

Add right into your blender or food processor 1/4 cup of unsweetened milk substitute, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1/4 teaspoon of butter extract, 1/4 teaspoon of coffee extract, 1/4 teaspoon of rum extract, 1 scoop of a chocolate protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of instant coffee, 4 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 2 large egg whites or 6 tablespoons of liquid egg whites, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.

Did you know that cocoa powder is a great cheap source of fiber with 2 grams for every 10 calories?

Blend or process all of those ingredients together until your tiramisu protein pancakes mix is smooth.

Take out a pan or griddle, turn your burner on medium heat, and coat your pan or griddle with some non-stick cooking spray.

Pour your mix in once your pan or griddle heats up and cook each side of your pancakes for around 2-3 minutes. Depending on how big or small you made your tiramisu protein pancakes, this could change.

Remove your pancakes from the heat, put them off to the side, and get ready to frost them.

Healthy Frosting

Every good tiramisu needs a topping and that’s where this quick and healthy frosting recipe comes into play! All you need to make it? A bowl and a couple ingredients.

Add into your bowl 1/2 container of a vanilla Greek yogurt, 4 tablespoons of cream cheese, and 1 tablespoon of your choice sweetener.

I used fat free ingredients today but reduced or full fat work just as good. Choose your ingredients based off your macros that day.

Mix those ingredients together until you reach your desired frosting consistency.

Pro tip? Let you cream cheese soften up before adding it in and it’ll mix in easier.

Frost your tiramisu protein pancakes and top them with anything else you want like some cocoa powder! Let us know what healthy toppings you use in the comments below.
