Ryan’s Famous Muscle Milk Pancakes!

August 11, 2016

Here is our recipe for delicious Muscle Milk, teff, and cocoa pancakes. It is packed with protein and essential nutrients to help fuel a morning workout or whatever else you need to tackle during the day. The batter also makes healthy donuts!


  • 1/2 c teff flour
  • 3 tb cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • dash of Himalayan sea salt
  • scoop muscle milk organic chocolate protein powder
  • Stevia to desired sweetness (taste the batter before you make it)


Mix all above dry ingredients. Then slowly stir in enough water until pancake batter consistency is achieved. Pour all of the batter in a 10-inch heated skillet over medium heat. Flip pancake when air bubbles appear all over pancake. I like to flip it and take it off the heat after about 20 seconds and begin eating it directly out of the pan. It is still gooey in the middle which makes it strikingly similar to a molten lava cake. I like to top the pancake with 1 tablespoon Kerry gold grass fed butter. The pancake absolutely does not need syrup.

    Hey Ryan! Sounds like your continuing to live great and healthy. I think you always will. Those pancakes you make are really healthy. It sounds like the total opposite of IHOP! I stopped eating eating there years ago. Sure they taste great but I eat so fast the pleasure of eating them only lasts minutes and the disgusting feeling after eating them lasts hours. You always do it right Ryan. I am literally trying to live to around 115. I love life even though it is such a challenge. Following great blogs like yours and other fellow runners help me stay so healthy. Keep up the great work! Nobody does it better than you! Hope the Family is all well. Always thankful, Michael Weinberg

    This is a little bit of a weird thing to post in this blog, so you if you delete it I fully understand and am not offended in the least!! I watched the Rio men’s olympic marathon on DVR today and was thinking about you. Am sorry to hear you had so many physical problems but glad to hear you are alive and well. I had read an article a few years back I think about your faith in God and that you had wound up in Redding. My hope and prayer above all for you and family is that the Lord would continue to pour out His presence, His grace and love on you all. He is the best … His love and His presence makes it all worth it! God bless and keep you …. and again, if this too weird for any reason as a comment in a blog about pancakes, feel free to delete!! God bless. 🙂
