Chocolate Craving Anyone?

Pin It
Ever since I've moved back to Winona I've had this huge craving for chocolate and of course being the poor college student that I am I have nothing but chocolate chips.  Not going to cut it. What is a girl to do??  
After a little brainstorming and little experimenting I came up with a nutritious-n-delicious recipe that any college student could afford. Double Chocolate Protein Pancakes. Yum.
My first baking adventure in my new house was a success!  I even got to use my new giraffe pan and giraffe whisk.  Thanks Mom! :P I will definitely be making these pancakes again.

Double Chocolate Protein Pancakes
2/3 cup Quick oats
1/2 tsp Baking soda
Dash of salt
2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
2 tbsp Agave nectar (or honey/any other sweetener of your choice)
2 tsp Vanilla extract
2/3 cup Milk
2/3 cup cooked lentils
Semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Grind the oats in a blender/food processor/ninja (this is the name my roommates gave my Wal-mart brand magic bullet).
2. Add remaining ingredients except chocolate chips and blend well.
3. Heat a pan over medium heat.
4. Spray pan with cooking spray and pour in 1/3 cup batter and sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top.
5. Flip when sides begin to look dry and all the bubbles have popped.
6. Remove when cooked all the way through.
7. Serve with natural peanut butter and enjoy!
Makes 5 medium pancakes.
