How to Make Chocnut Protein Pancakes

For ectomorphs/hardgainers, more often than not the problem isn’t so much a fast metabolism but a weak appetite. If you find yourself having trouble eating enough, calorie-dense foods can and should be a part of your diet if your goal is to put on mass. Below is a protein pancakes recipe I whipped up for Mico to help him get in a hefty amount of calories in a relatively short period of time.

You could easily adapt this into whatever you’d like– oreos, cookies, etc. I chose Chocnut because it has some protein in it, at least! 😛

Tips for Making the Perfect Protein Pancakes

  1. Whey protein does not make for good pancake batter. Save yourself the trial and error by using a good low-sugar pancake mix and add a scoop of protein to that.
  2. For pancakes without protein powder, use a ratio of 25g of egg whites to 55g of dry pancake mix.
  3. Add 1 tsp. of baking powder to make them fluffy.
  4. Beat the eggs first before adding in the dry pancake mix.
  5. Low to medium heat is always better to avoid burning the top/bottom, especially for thicker batter.
