Moon Pie Filling:
- 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.
- Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and set aside.
- Mix all the wet ingredients in medium-size bowl.
- Slowly fold in wet ingredients to the dry ingredients just until wet, 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 Moon Pie Filling; top those with the other 12 pancakes and serve dusted with powdered sugar.
