Chocolate Covered Banana Bombs

Little nuggets of chocolate and banana and a protein rich cake...
Delicious bites of light, fluffy banana-hazelnut cake & bananas coated in rich, silky dark chocolate…..

I recently discovered FlapJacked Protein pancake mix and have been sharing their products with all of my health-conscious “Fit-foodie” friends. This recipe uses their Banana Hazelnut mix which is a blend of Whole Oat Flour, Buttermilk, Whey Protein Isolate, Banana, Hazelnut Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt and Xanthan Gum.

“This protein pancake is loaded with potassium and fiber. Hazelnut meal adds vitamin E in addition to B vitamins (including folate) and is also a rich source of potassium, calcium and magnesium. With only 200 calories per serving, our Banana Hazelnut Protein Pancake Mix has a sweet, nutty flavor while modestly packing 16 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber in each serving.”- FlapJacked
