1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup chia seeds
Sift cocoa powder into a medium-deep mixing bowl. Add maple syrup, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Whisk to combine until smooth. Add the coconut milk on top and whisk to combine until smooth.
Pour the chia seeds on top of the mixture and either blend with a whisk or immersion blender. The immersion blender will create a smoother texture.
Cover and refrigerate until the mixture thickens, and becomes pudding-like at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight.
Enjoy with fresh coconut whip cream and berries, if desired.
4 large eggs
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp chocolate protein powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat the griddle or skillet to medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Add eggs, bananas, and oats to the blender. Blend on low for 15-30 seconds until oats are ground and
bananas are fully mashed.
Add protein powder, cocoa powder, and cinnamon and blend again on low for an additional 30-45
seconds until smooth.
Drop by 1/3 cup full onto the preheated griddle and cook until bubbles begin to form and edges are
just setting. Flip and cook through, about 2 minutes.
Serve immediately topped with fresh strawberries and little powdered sugar, if desired.
