Lately I am all about easy recipes that do not require an endless list of ingredients, are simple to make but still nutritious, maybe it is the summer energy, I think it is! Who want to spend the whole day in the kitchen when it is so hot and when all the fun is happening outdoors?!!
And I know, summer almost over, but not yet, we all still having some pretty jot days here is California and I think they will last one more month!
Pancakes are usually enjoyed on weekends but who wouldn't want to make their Mondays (or Tuesdays or any day of the week) a little better by treating themselves a little!
For this recipe, I used, and for the first time, a pancake mix ! I think I am going to do this more often, especially when i am short on time!
I chose a vegan & gluten free pancake mix. Yes most of the pancake mix have milk or eggs in them, so read the ingredients!
I also added my favorite chocolate superfoods powder Detox Organics to load those pancakes with nutrition, so they are not only delicious but also good for ya.
Imagine this: one scoop of Detox Organics has the following:
Dandelion, spirulina, wheatgrass, aloe vera, horseradish, collard greens, broccoli leaves, pineapple, and more!

Ok, let's go to the recipe now!
1 & 1/2 cup pancake mix
3/4 cup unsweetened soy milk
2 scoops Detox Organics superfoods
2 scoops chocolate vegan protein
1 tsp vanilla extract
Coconut whip cream
Preheat a lightly greased skillet with coconut oil on medium heat.
Mix the dry ingredients together until well combined in a medium bowl.
Add the milk and vanilla extract and mix briefly.
You may want to add a bit more milk if the batter is too thick (this will depend on many things: which pancake mix you are using, which protein powder, milk etc)
Using a measuring cup, scoop 1/4 of the pancake batter and cook it for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, on medium heat.
Serve your pancakes with a drizzle of maple syrup, strawberry slices, dark chocolate and coconut whip cream.
