Chocolate Pancakes With Moon Pie Stuffing

Yield: 1 dozen 4-inch sandwiches: 1 serving = 1 sandwich


  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Moon pie stuffing mix:

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup marshmallow cream
  • 2/3 cup Body Fortress vanilla whey protein powder


For the moon pie stuffing, beat cocoa and heavy cream together until stiff peaks are formed. Whip in cream cheese, marshmallow cream, and whey protein powder for about a minute or until well blended, but don’t overbeat. Cover and set aside in fridge.

For pancakes, mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and set aside. Mix all the wet ingredients in medium-size bowl. Slowly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until well mixed, but don’t over mix. Cook the pancakes on a lightly oiled griddle on medium heat, or 375 F. Use about 1/8 cup of batter to form 4-inch pancakes, flipping when they start to bubble. Top the first 12 pancakes with equal portions of the cream cheese mix; top those with the other 12 pancakes and serve dusted with powdered sugar.
