1. Vanilla-Chocolate Chip Pancakes
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
2 scoops almond meal
4 egg whites or 1/2 cup of egg substitute
1/2 cup of water
3 tsp Stevia
1/4 cup of cacao chips (dark chocolate or raw cacao preferred)

unsweetened coconut, cocoa powder, or crushed nuts for topping (optional)
Instructions: Mix all ingredients. When completely combined, shape into balls. Roll balls in topping of choice. If you find they are dry, add more coconut oil as desired. Store in an airtight container.
