Easy Chocolate Protein Pancakes

Who doesn't love a healthy pancake recipe?? When wanting to follow a healthier diet, we tend to miss out on some of our favorites foods. However, if you can get a little creative you can still enjoy the things we may think we shouldn't indulge in, but healthier!

If you’re looking for a way to make your breakfast more enjoyable this can easily be made to hit the spot, and stop those pancake fantasies, lol.
