The Perfect Protein Pancakes

Updated: Mar 23

Who doesn't love pancakes?? I certainly do, especially with a steaming mug of hot coffee. But traditional pancakes always left me feeling sluggish and heavy, which is the opposite of how you want to feel in the morning! As a dietitian I know that a good breakfast starts with protein, hence the birth of my protein pancakes. Even my husband is a fan of these, which is a feat in and of itself!

I love to top my pancakes with peanut butter for extra protein & healthy fats.

Feel free to add your own flavors! I love adding blueberries to mine, but you could use chocolate chips, additional banana slices, pumpkin spice...the world is your oyster. Enjoy!
