Marvellously Chocolatey Pancakes

6 pancakes


  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 190 ml milk
  • 150 g oats
  • 1 scoop Impact Whey Protein (Chocolate)
  • 25 g cacao
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 100 g cream cheese
  • 8-10 g Impact Whey Protein (White Chocolate, for the frosting)
  • 1-2 tbsp. Milk (for the frosting)
  • Drops red and purple food colouring
  • Edible glitter (optional)
  • Squirt whipped cream (optional)



First, add all of the pancake ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.


Next, preheat a non-stick frying pan, add a little low-fat cooking spray or oil and then pour about 1/6th of the pancake batter into the pan. Cook for 1 & a half minutes on one side, flip, and then around a minute on the other side.


Repeat for the remaining batter.


To make the frosting, add the cream cheese to a bowl along with the White Chocolate Impact Whey Protein and mix until completely smooth. Then split the mixture into 2 smaller bowls – leave one frosting white, but add a few drops of red and blue food colouring to the other. Stir through until you get a purple colour, adding a little bit of milk if you need to loosen the consistency.


Now build your stack – layer the pancakes with the white frosting between each one, then add the purple frosting at the top.


To finish off, spray with edible gold glitter and add a squirt of whipped cream. Magic.
