Servings 4 people
- 2 cups plain 0% Greek Yogurt
- 1 tbsp honey or to taste
- 2 cups frozen dark cherries
- 1/4 cup water
- Honey if desired, to taste
- Dark chocolate shaved
Add the oats to a food processor or blender and pulse until they turn into a powder. Mix the cinnamon and protein powder together in the food processor.
In another bowl, mix together the remaining pancake ingredients. Gently mix the dry ingredients into the wet and allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and grease with nonstick cooking spray, oil or butter. Pour the 1/4 cup circles of batter into the pan. Once you see bubbles form around the edges, flip and continue to cook until golden brown on both sides. Keep pancakes warm on a plate tented with foil.
Meanwhile, mix together the yogurt and honey. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, heat the frozen cherries with the water and any additional honey, if desired. Cook until bubbly, saucy and warmed through.
To assemble, dollop a few spoonfuls of cream filling between the protein pancakes and garnish with the cherry sauce and shaved chocolate.
