Instant Pot Protein Pancake Bites


  • Author: 365 Days of Slow and Pressure Cooking
  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 7 pancake bites 1x

Description

Only 3 ingredients! Whole wheat, healthy and tasty chocolate chip pancake bites made in your Instant Pot! 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3/4 cup Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Power Cakes mix
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a bowl whisk together the pancake mix and the water until combined.
  2. Spray a silicone egg bite mold* with non-stick cooking spray. 
  3. Spoon 2 Tbsp of batter into each mold. 
  4. Sprinkle 5 chocolate chips into each mold. Use a toothpick to “stir” the chocolate chips in. 
  5. Pour 1 ½ cups water into bottom of the Instant Pot. Place a paper towel on top of the egg bite mold. Place the egg bite mold on a trivet/sling and lower into the Instant Pot. 
  6. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 12 minutes. When time is up let pot sit for 5 minutes. Release any remaining pressure by moving valve to venting. Remove the lid. 
  7. Carefully remove the sling, mold and paper towel. Place a plate on top of the mold and invert the bites onto the plate. 
  8. Serve immediately with syrup. 

Notes

To add extra protein into your pancake bites, stir a scoop of vanilla protein powder into the batter. You can also use milk instead of water in the batter. Add an egg for even more nutrition.

I have not tried doubling the recipe and stacking 2 egg bite molds on top of each other. I imagine it would work. Cover the pan on the bottom with foil.
