CHOCOLATE BANANA OATMEAL PANCAKES

Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Pancakes are flavored with raw cocoa powder and topped with macerated berries for a guilt-free breakfast.

When it comes to banishing hunger and ending snacking, protein and fiber are a dynamic duo. These pancakes pack plenty of the former, calling for both protein powder and eggs to fuel your busy morning, but they also add in something unexpected that we love: rolled oats.

Uncooked oats in pancakes may sound unseemly, but they hold an overlooked nutrient called resistant starch that aids weight loss, boosts post-meal calorie burn and even lowers your risk of cancer.
