Healthy dessert for breakfast? Sign. Me. Up! These pancakes are truly out of this world. As is anything that combines chocolate and peanut butter, if you ask me ;). I'd even go as far as to say this is my favorite pancake recipe. What makes them even better? They are gluten-free, packed with protein and have no added sugar. You can enjoy a guilt-free breakfast that will you keep satisfied well into the morning.
Fluffy, yet moist and decadent. I encourage you to give these a shot - you'll be hooked!

I made this recipe for fellow WW friend as a treat, with only 1 minor change, used Gold Medal SR instead of coconut flour. The aroma from the chocolate pancakes smelled sooo good! For some reason my filling did not thicken like the photo. But, that didn't take anything away from the taste apparently! I did not top with Bananas or Chocolate Chips this first time. My friend said it was delicious! Tasted like a chocolate molten lava cake! The whole thing was only 5 Blue Points and only reason it was that high is because my Chocolate Pro Powder was 3 pts/1 TBS. Now, I've got to make me some chocolate pancakes! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Thanks for your post. I love that quote! It profoundly points to the contradiction that is at the heart of the human experience of time. It spurred me to write a post of my own on change, as I read yours just as had been thinking about this very subject in relation to library work.
This looks and sounds amazing 🙂 Will need to try this out soon! x
YES please do!! I think you'll be very pleased! 🙂
The nutrition facts for this seem very off. How can there possibly be 53g of carbohydrates when basically the only carbs are coming from half a small banana? Which has nowhere near that amount of sugar or carbs? Even if a higher carbohydrates protein powder is used I don't see that being close to accurate.
Hey Jason -
The Isogenix protein powder I used had 12 grams of carbs per serving. Also, the nutrition facts for this recipe included the toppings, which were the remaining half of the banana as well as chocolate chips. I did state the total tally included the toppings, but I understand how that may have been overlooked by readers, as I am sure you are not the only one who questioned where the additional carbs came from. I have adjusted the nutrition facts of the recipe to include only the ingredients for the pancakes themselves, excluding the additional toppings.
I am allergic to nuts. Is there anything to substitute for PB for in this recipe? They sound delish!
Hi, can I just use regular peanut butter instead of PB2?
Hi Kim - definitely! Enjoy!
Is the nutritional information per pancake??
Nope, for the entire recipe!
Awfully high sodium - from powders?
It's mostly from the baking powder, unfortunately... though some comes from the protein powder and egg whites.

These look to-die-for!! Thank you so much for posting this recipe. 😀
I also really want to try these, though I don't have pb2 and can't get it nearby. 🙁
Anyway, thank you, once again!
You can get PB2 online on Amazon or I just got mine on groupon 🙂
Ah I saw there was recently a Groupon for it - that's great!
Just bought the ingredients - I'm making these for breakfast tomorrow! What a way to start the work week! PS - found the PB2 at GNC.
Excellent! You're in for a treat!
They sell pb2 at target stores as well
