Chocolate Plantain Pancakes

What a great way to start a Monday! Pancakes!

Just because I choose for pancakes to go instead of the waffles or french toast doesn’t mean I don’t still eat and enjoy them. I make them the most often actually because I don’t have a waffle maker and we usually freeze our bread so french toast would take a while to make…. either way I have a pancake recipe for you today!

What is not to love about chocolate and plantains?? Nothing in my book because I eat a lot of both of those. I have seven five (baked two last night) plantains in my kitchen right now that will be ripe this week and ready to eat. I love plantains and I hope you do too.


Chocolate Plantain Pancakes: 


  • 1 large ripe plantain
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 scoop protein powder (chocolate/unflavored or vanilla)
  • 1 T coconut flour
  • 1 T cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp nunaturals cocoa syrup (or other sweetener)
  • optional add ins: chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, etc


  1. Peel plantain and blend it up in a blender then pour into a bowl.
  2. Add protein powder, coconut flour, cocoa powder vanilla extact and cocoa syrup or sweetener to bowl and mix together.
  3. Add chocolate chips, nuts, coconut etc. if you want to the batter.
  4. Heat a nonstick skillet, spray if necessary, pour batter onto hot skillet in the size pancake desired. Flip once the top starts to bubble and bottom is golden (2-4 min).
  5. Repeat until all of batter is gone and you have some delicious pancakes ready to eat!
