High Protein Chocolate Chip Pancake Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies and pancakes unite in this healthy breakfast recipe that can easily double as dessert! Your High Protein Pancake Mix from Nutrisystem is turned into moist and fluffy pancake mix cookies that are packed with fiber and protein.

These mini pancake bites combine the creaminess of peanut butter with the sweetness of maple syrup, vanilla extract and chocolate chips in one delicious cookie. With so much flavor that can satisfy any sweet tooth, you would never guess that these pancake mix cookies fit into your weight loss plan. That’s because we don’t just use any pancake mix to whip up this sweet brunch: we use the High Protein Pancake Mix from Nutrisystem that—as the name suggests—is high in protein while also being a good source of fiber!

To make these easy pancake cookies, simply combine two packages of Nutrisystem High Protein Pancake Mix with coconut oil, peanut butter, maple syrup, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla extract and chocolate chips. Portion out 10 cookies on a greased baking sheet and bake them at 350 degrees for about eight minutes. Pump up the protein even more by enjoying your two cookie serving with a glass of skim milk, a smart PowerFuel option on your Nutrisystem plan.

High Protein Chocolate Chip Pancake CookiesPro Tip: Instead of incorporating the chocolate chips into the batter, try melting them and drizzling them on top of the cookies for a beautiful presentation! If you’re watching your sugar intake, you can also swap in stevia sweetened chocolate chips for a healthy alternative.

This recipe makes 10 Chocolate Chip High Protein Pancake Mix Cookies, with two cookies counting as one serving.

  • Not a fan of chocolate? Feel free to omit the chocolate chips or only use them in some of the pancake cookies.
  • Swap the chocolate chips for cinnamon to make healthy snickerdoodle cookies.
  • Add raisins instead of chocolate chips (count this towards your daily SmartCarbs).
  • Add some nuts to the batter for more protein and crunch (count this towards your PowerFuels).
  • Try the recipe with different extracts instead of the vanilla—peppermint would be perfect for the holidays!
  • If you don’t like peanut butter, try the recipe with almond butter or cashew butter for a different flavor and nutrition profile.
