Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Trying another stab at my LSC Protein Pancake recipe. Although there is mint extract packing a powerful punch in this recipe, the bright green hue is actually from spinach!!! A secret ingredient that includes a great balance of protein, carbs and fiber! My kids couldn't even taste it! These pancakes could easily be altered for a vegan recipe if I changed the protein from Whey to a vegan brand such as Sun Warrior, and omitted the Fage yogurt. I have been adding Fage lately and truly believe it gives the pancakes a fluffy texture! 

I used my Vitamix to blend the egg whites, oat bran, baking powder, mint extract and spinach. I then transferred the mixture to a Pyrex bowl and folded in the Fage yogurt and Choclate Dream (dairy free) Choclate chips. 

I am setting this mixture in the fridge and will make either tomorrow or Sunday for #TheFitBaldman's #PornCakeSundays

Stay tuned for final pictures and taste test!!
