I know, I had you at “chocolate raspberry pancakes”. If I didn’t already entice you with that delicious combo, you need to seriously stop and think about your life choices. I mean it, because chocolate raspberry ANYTHING is freakin’ amazing. Anyhow, one of my goals for 2017 is to share more recipes. Why? Well because people need help, they need to make better choices, and they always need pancake recipes right? After all, the point of this blog is to show people that living life as a fit and active vegan is THE optimal way to live, busting through the “weak vegan” stereotype! Plus you get to eat healthy chocolate raspberry pancakes, without harming any animals. Who wouldn’t want to do that?

Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Pancakes
So first let’s address why Chocolate Raspberry? Short answer: because everything tastes better with chocolate. Fact! Ok, not really a fact persay, but it definitely should be and I dare anyone to tell me otherwise. Long answer: I’ve had a love affair with PlantFusion protein powder for a while and when I saw their Chocolate/Raspberry flavor on sale on Amazon I stepped outside my box and bought a tub of my usual vanilla bean AND a tub of the chocolate raspberry. I wasn’t disappointed.
I definitely love the taste of the vanilla bean as a protein shake. However, the chocolate raspberry feels like more of a treat, in fact it’s more like a dessert in shake form. And yes, you could use vanilla bean PlantFusion for these pancakes if you wanted to be boring. But it is February , and this is the month of love, and of chocolate, so this is no time to be boring!
Recipe: Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Pancakes
Ok so grab all the ingredients below on your next shopping trip (I advise getting the plantfusion on Amazon as it’s a great price, and with prime is delivered straight to you). Of course you might also want to grab some extra ingredients to serve with the pancakes, as in the photos as a serving suggestion. Maybe that’s some fresh raspberries, and chocolate sauce. It could also be ice cream, it’s your pancake party! Naturally, you’re also gonna need a pan or griddle, a spatula to flip the pancakes, and serving plates etc. That’s if they last long enough to hit the plate and not go straight into your mouth
- 1/2c Rolled Oats
- 1/4c All Purpose Flour
- 1 scoop Plant Fusion Chocolate Raspberry Protein Powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2tspn Ground Flax
- 1c Almond Milk
- Place rolled oats into a Vitamix (or other blender) and blend until ground into fine flour. Add all the other ingredients and blend into a batter.
- Heat up your pan. STOP! I know you just want to go ahead and throw that pancake batter right in the pan, but don’t! The pan needs to be on a medium heat which means it will take about 5 minutes to warm up.
- Place a dollop of batter in the pan and allow to cook. I used a 1/4c scoop so that they would all be even-ish in size. Once bubbles start forming on the top of the pancake it’s time to turn it over. Now you COULD toss the pancakes if you’re using a pan, but if you’re accident prone like me, maybe just flip it using a spatula. I use our Black and Decker 3-in-1 waffle/pancake/griddle so I use a spatula.
- Repeat, repeat, repeat until the batter is gone and you have a stack of pancakes waiting to be devoured.
I love nutritional information don’t you? What I love is seeing that a cookies serving size is HALF a cookie. Who does that? Seriously? Who puts HALF a freakin’ cookie back in the packet for another day. Nobody that’s who! So this recipe can serve ONE person as a meal, like a protein packed breakfast but it also can be split between two or three people for a smaller dessert.
