HAILEY Bieber has revealed her go-to recipe for chocolate chip protein pancakes.
As a gym girl who’s always trying to pack in the protein for the gains, I had to give the sweet recipe a shot.

Hailey shared her “sweet and yummy” breakfast dish on a YouTube series called What’s in my kitchen?
The recipe used is somewhat flexible, a plus for me being gluten free.
I grabbed a package of gluten free pancake mix from the store and got to work on the breakfast favorite.
First, I mixed in the dry ingredients, including the pancake mix and two scoops of chocolate protein powder.
Next, I added in the wet ingredients, consisting of one whole egg, unsweetened almond milk, and some vanilla extract.
I added in some mini chocolate chips, folding them into the silky smooth batter.
Using one tablespoon of butter, I added it into my pan on medium heat.
For each pancake, I used one-fourth of a cup of batter which made the perfect size pancake.
Once I cooked them to the desired level, I stacked my freshly-made pancakes on a plate.
I drizzled some maple syrup on top and used coconut cream in place of whipped cream as well as some sliced ripe bananas.
The pancakes were absolutely delicious and super filling due to the protein powder.
I particularly enjoyed the coconut cream in place of butter or whipped cream to top the pancakes.
While the breakfast favorite was a lip-smacking treat, I wouldn’t be quick to call the recipe healthy.
As Hailey admits in the video, it is “drenched in butter and chocolate.”
Although the protein powder added an extra boost, the additives in the recipe from pre-packaged mixes are not the healthiest way to get this.
I would highly recommend the recipe for an occasional treat, but not as a regular breakfast staple.
I definitely wouldn’t advise anyone looking to recreate Hailey’s model figure to eat these every day.
