Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1-2
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ tablespoon raw cocoa powder
  • ½ scoop (2 tablespoons) chocolate protein powder (vegan based or whey)**
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 slices whole grain or gluten free bread**
  • 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter (or almond/cashew/hazelnut/sunflower butter)
  • 1 tablespoon organic berry jam**
  1. In a bowl combine egg whites, cocoa, protein, water, and flax and stir until a smooth consistency is reached.
  2. On a large plate line up the pieces of bread.
  3. Pour half of the mixture evenly over each piece of bread and spread over to cover each slice evenly.
  4. Let the mixture soak in for a minute or two and flip each piece and repeat with the remaining cocoa mixture on the other side of each piece of bread.
  5. Heat a non-stick pan at medium heat, once hot, add in 1 piece of the soaked bread and let cook for 1-2 minutes, then flip and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Repeat with each slice of soaked bread.
  6. You may need to scoop the excess cocoa mixture back onto the bread if it hasn't soaked in.
  7. Stack your bread and serve with nut butter and jam!
  8. Enjoy!
I made this dish for my hubby so it's a larger size 1 person serving, or can be split for 2 people by adding one extra slice of bread and dispersing the cocoa sauce evenly among 4 slices rather than 3.
** Use a naturally sweetened protein powder - I prefer North Coast Naturals or Vega brands.
** I used Udi's Gluten Free Millet-Chia Bread
** I used Crofter's Organic Berry Jam (sweetened with cane sugar)
