Chocolate Sandwich Pancakes

I don’t often have pancakes because I am not often blessed with the luxury of time in the morning. However, that isn’t to say that I don’t love them! When a lazy morning presents its sleepy head I jump at the opportunity to wake myself up with some pancakes. As you have probably guessed by the title of this recipe, these pancakes have a oozy and melty chocolate centre which make them even more delightful. For the centre of mine I used a little scoop of chocolate hazelnut spread, but it would work just as well with nutella or a square of dark chocolate.

Tip: if you are going to use a spread, place the jar in the fridge a few hours before (or overnight) so that it sets and is easier to scoop out onto the pancake.

Ingredients: Serves 1

  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 scoop SFN Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Oats
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 50ml Milk
  • Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (I used Pip&Nut)
  • Optional: 1 tsp Maca Powder

Method:

  1. Start by placing all of the ingredients, apart from your chocolate spread, into a blender.
  2. Blend together until a smooth and slightly thick batter has formed. If your batter is too thick add a splash more milk and if its too thin add a few more oats.
  3. Heat a non- stick pan over a medium heat before pouring in small dollops of pancake batter.
  4. Once the batter starts to form air bubbles in the pan on one side, add a half a tsp of chocolate spread into the middle of the pancake. Add a little more raw batter to cover the chocolate before carefully flipping over and cooking on the other side.
  5. Repeat this with the remaining pancake mix.
  6. Once all your pancakes are cooked, top with your favourite fruit and drizzle with maple syrup if you like before tucking in!
