Healthy High Protein Chocolate Pancakes Recipe

This glorious recipe comes from FitFoodEmma and incorporates all our protein-packed favourites – egg whites, protein powder, flaxeed and Hognuts Birthday Cake. You’ve even got your veggies in there with the grated courgette, making these super filling, denser than your typical pancake, yet still extra fluffy!

Add sprinkles for that divine ‘birthday cake’ experience 😉
