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.

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!
