Dairy Free Vegan Chocolate Protein Pancakes

Sponsored post: I received a sample of Clean Lean Protein to facilitate this post.

  Eating healthy does not have to be boring and tasteless. When you use the right ingredients and recipes you can eat delicious tasty food like chocolate pancakes that are loaded with protein. My youngest boy does not eat meat and has a few protein sources that he will eat like yogurt and peanut butter. So I am always looking for ways to get the protein into his body. My favorite way to add protein to his diet is through a protein powder. One of my favorite protein powders to use is Nuzest Nuzest Rich Chocolate Clean Lean Protein Powder as my son loves the rich chocolate taste. I love that this plant-based protein powder is dairy-free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, and has no GMOs! I have dairy sensitivities so dairy-free protein powder is a plus for me. This is a protein powder that is allergy-friendly as it has no nasty ingredients in it.

The protein powder that uses no sweeteners like Stevia

  My son loves making chocolate peanut butter smoothies with the Nuzest Clean Lean Protein Powder and gets very excited when I whip up a batch of pancakes with the protein powder in it. This delicious chocolate powder adds about 10 grams of protein to my son's daily diet with just one serving! When I make these pancakes, I always make a double batch so my son can use the leftover pancakes for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

  1. I think this is brilliant. I definitely do not get enough protein in my diet, so this a great way to get it in there.

  2. I definitely want to try those pancakes.

  3. You've seen me post about NuZEST - so you know, I ADOREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE that protein powder so so so so so so so much!

  4. I'd love to try Nuzest since it's a brand I've not used yet and who doesn't love chocolate?!

  5. Those pancakes look amazing!! I struggle with getting enough protein in my diet so these would be great for me :)

  6. These pancakes look so delicious! I am not familiar with NuZest but definitely will be checking it out now!

  7. Chocolate pancakes sound delicious! I would be curious to try a version like this.

  8. What a fantastic idea. We always have protein powder in the house so I may have to give these a go. Thanks

  9. Wow this is easy to make and thank you for your guide. Do they have other flavours other than chocolate?

  10. Wow, looks very delicious. What makes it more special is that its vegetarian. I need to check this out.

  11. What a delicious weekend breakfast idea! A good protein powder can be hard to find, so I look forward to giving Nuzest a try.

  12. I use protein powder on all my strength training days and this one sounds lovely! I find I don't like how the texture of bakes change with the addition of protein powder though, so I usually just have it in a shake.

  13. Strawberry is one of my fave fruits. I can put myself on a strawberry diet for a week ;-)

  14. I forgot I had some of this in the pantry. I babysit a boy that now has to go dairy and gluten free So this will help. Thanks for sharing on #TastyTuesdays

  15. How did you know I needed this in my life? I'm slowly but surely going to cut dairy out of my life completely. It's just not good at all for me!

  16. Oh wow…those pancakes look delicious! And, the strawberries are calling my name. I have never added protein powder to my pancakes, but now I want to try.

  17. These look really delicious and I love that they are dairy free. This is something my daughter could even enjoy!

  18. I don't think I've ever made dairy free pancakes before! I think it's really interesting and it's definitely something that I would consider making one of these days.
