Easy Peasy Chocolate Protein Pancakes + Waffles

Chocolate Cacao Superfood Protein Waffles

Host brunch at home with these simple-to-make, protein-packed, nutritionally dense chocolate superfood pancakes and waffles! They have an oh-so-yummy flavor fusion of cinnamon and vanilla, not to mention a burst of vitamins and minerals from our superfood and protein blends. In the pancakes, the vanilla especially helps to balance out the Green Dream and leafy greens, which add a boost of chlorophyll for radiant skin and hair.

For these, I like to use any gluten-free batter mix (Trader Joe’s has a wonderful one!), but Birch Blenders also offers an array of delicious mixes, if you don’t need to eat gluten-free. I also love swapping whatever oil the batter box calls for with Thrive Algae Oil (a tablespoon has the same amount of healthy fat as one whole avocado!) or the fabulously versatile coconut oil.

Be sure to freeze the waffles if you have extra–they make for a wholesome, anytime-of-day snack or dessert and are definitely one-of-a-kind. You won’t be finding any superfood-charged waffles at the grocery store. ;)

Philosophie Superfood Protein Waffles

Gather This:

For the Pancakes:

  • your favorite gluten-free or paleo pancake mix (and ingredients it requires)
  • 1 tablespoon Green Dream Superfood Blend
  • 1 small handful greens
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • a dash of vanilla extract
  • slivered almonds (topping)
  • maple syrup or Berry Bee Honey (topping)

For the Waffles:

  • your favorite gluten-free or paleo waffle mix (and ingredients it requires)
  • Thrive Algae Oil or coconut oil (to use as an ingredient in the mix)
  • 2 tablespoons Cacao Magic Superfood Blend
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • a dash of vanilla extract
  • a sprinkling of bee pollen not an animal protect-B vitamins, like B-12 (topping)
  • Cacao Bee Honey (topping)

Do This:

Follow the instructions on the pancake or waffle mix you’re using, and use a blender to whip all of the ingredients together (this is especially important for the pancakes since you’ll want to liquify the leafy greens!). Cook the batter on a skillet or in the waffle iron to create your pancakes and/or waffles. Once they’re done, sprinkle with your favorite toppings (bee pollen is wonderful for the waffles and is loaded with vitamin B-12, an essential nutrient for your brain, blood, + nervous system!) + ENJOY!

    Boo Berry Smoothie

    Boo Berry Antioxidant Smoothie

    Get ready for a chilly night out with your little trick-or-treaters with this spicy, immunity-boosting smoothie! 

    Fresh ginger is an excellent cold-buster and tummy-soother, and cayenne possesses anti-irritant, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-flu properties (you can always go light on the cayenne and ginger too if you're sensitive to spiciness). The healing Berry Bee Honey adds a bit of sweetness to counterbalance the spice and has natural antibiotic properties, while the coconut butter brings in healthy MCT fats, helps take out some of the kick, and adds the lovely creaminess. And with its high vitamin C levels, Berry Bliss packs in a load of antioxidants, which combat free radicals and keep our immune system cells safe. 

    Boo Berry Orange Smoothie

    Gather This: 

    1 cup nut milk of choice
    1/2 frozen banana
    1 tablespoon orange zest, plus juice of 1/4 orange
    1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger (or a one inch piece)
    1 full packet of acai (we love the Sambazon packs!)
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne
    1/2 cup to 1 cup of ice
    1 tablespoon Berry Bliss Superfood Blend 
    1 tablespoon coconut butter
    1-2 tablespoons Berry Bee Honey
      Do This:
      Blend all ingredients well until smooth + top with bee pollen! ENJOY!

      Gather This:

      2 cup unsoaked and pitted dates

      ½ cup Cacao Magic 

      2 tbsp Cacao Bee Honey

      1 tbsp coconut oil

      sesame seeds (optional for "eyes")


      Do This:

      1. Place dates in a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, and process until well chopped.
      2. Add Cacao Magic, honey & coconut oil; process until a ball forms.
      3. Roll to desired thickness, between cling wrap. I then flattened the balls in the cling wrap. (You could stop here and have as is, as little raw cacao cookies)
      4. Chill until firm.
      5. Cut as desired -- I used a small bat!
      6. Decorate with sesame seeds for eyes and use the end of a straw at an angle to make a smile!

      If you would like to individually wrap these, let them dry out a bit on the counter before slipping them into lollipop bags.
