Breakfast Dreams Are Made Of These Chocolate Chip Pancake Donuts

by Lindsay Zacharia, @thesimplebite - May 10, 2020

When breakfast is made at home, why not opt for donuts? This recipe for Chocolate Chip Pancake Donuts makes a classic treat even more decadent! Interested in knowing why? We thought you’d never ask! For starters, it calls for tons of better-for-you ingredients, such as ground flaxseed, coconut oil and, of course, collagen. The ground flaxseed adds fiber to the recipe, while the coconut oil adds a touch of healthy fats. The Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer® in Vanilla comes in to pump up the flavor!

Plus, did we mention this recipe only requires one bowl and takes 15 minutes to bake? Whether you whip these up for breakfast or dessert, they will be ready in the blink of an eye! We donut know about you, but we are ready to get baking (sorry, we had to!).
