{Recipe} Delicious Protein Pancakes

Who wouldn’t want to celebrate National Pancake Day with some protein pancakes!?

When I awoke this morning, I didn’t even know today was a day worthy of celebration. I quickly got to celebrating, though, after being informed via facebook. Isn’t that how we all find our news these days, or is it just me!?

Protein Pancakes

Just because you are one who wants to get lean or stay lean, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little celebration in honor of PANCAKES! I tweaked a recipe I recently saw just a little bit to adjust for the ingredients I have on hand and amounts that work for my needs. Here’s what I came up with:

Fat-Loss Friendly Berry Protein Pancakes – Serves 1

Place everything except the berries in a blender and pulse a few times. Pour a portion of the batter into a skillet that has been preheated on medium and sprayed with cooking spray. Divide the batter into about 5 small to medium pancakes. As the pancakes cook, place a few blueberries on each one. Once the pancakes start to bubble on top, flip them and cook on the other side until fully cooked to a golden brown. After you plate them up, sprinkle the remaining berries on top.

I added a drizzle of Maple Grove Farms sugar-free maple syrup to the top as well. (Note: I don’t normally “do” artificial sweeteners as a habit, but I will for times such as these! Having freedom in my nutrition plan to have a few things I don’t normally indulge in like sugar-free syrup helps make this lifestyle sustainable for me. It’s all about moderation.)

I have seen many versions of fat-loss friendly pancakes and waffles… the sky is the limit! You can use protein powder, cottage cheese, nut flours, nut butter, cocoa, and many more foods to make pancakes or waffles that are SUPER YUMMY and fat-loss friendly. Eating for fat loss doesn’t have to be boring!

If you haven’t already celebrated National Pancake Day, then celebrate with breakfast for dinner tonight!
