Chocolate Procakes

Today on Dr. Kumfer’s Kitchen, we tackle breakfast! Most of the time, our house keeps it simple with breakfast, eggs, fruit, some toast or cereal but every now and again you just have to have some pancakes. While traditional pancakes are delicious they are heavy on the carbohydrates and little else. This is great if you are fueling up for the Indy Mini Marathon, not so great for you average day around the house. For that reason the Protein Pancake was born.

While this recipe is pretty easy, here are some tips. The more you make, the easier it is to blend as if you just try to make 1 serving its hard to get all of the ingredients blended. Also, if you want to moisten you Procakes, add a little fruit to the mix. Banana works well, especially if you use chocolate protein powder.
