Protein Pancakes

When it comes to breakfast, I choose sweet over savory every time. Like, if I’m going out for breakfast I’m almost always struggling to choose between the pancakes, french toast, or waffles 🙈. I stuff my face with carbs, butter, and sugary syrup, then all I want to do after is go into a major food coma.

Now, I’m not saying I will, or even want to, change my ways. I enjoy every second of those delicious carbs and I probably will always choose sweet, carby goodness over a veggie omelet. Luckily I don’t go out to breakfast all that often, and when I’m home I’m usually too lazy to make myself a big breakfast in the mornings. I do, however, still love a good pancake, and, fortunately, these protein pancakes are light, pretty healthy, and don’t leave me feeling like I need a nap immediately after I eat them. They’re also SO yummy and really easy to make. All you need is a list of simple, everyday ingredients and a blender!

How cute is my little pancake flipper helper? 😍 There really are no fancy ingredients or directions for this recipe. You mix everything up in the blender, and pour the batter onto a griddle. Scroll down for the recipe. You can easily double, or even half it. They always turn out! P.S. I like to drench the griddle in butter when cooking these. Maybe that’s why they taste so good. Haha.

DIY Acai Bowls

We recently made these for a bridal shower breakfast we hosted for our cousin, and they were a huge hit! We looked up the ingredients for one of our favorite local acai bowls, and tried to copy the recipe.  They turned out SO yummy, we knew we had to share!


This was the first time we had ever made our own acai bowls, and they were super easy thanks to these yummy and convenient frozen acai packets we found at Costco 🙌🏻 

The little packets are individually frozen, and we found that each packet can make about enough for one and a half servings (depending on how much additional fruit you use).

We have a favorite spot to get acai bowls, and find ourselves there way too often spending half of our food budgets on a 16 ounce bowl of frozen amazingness. Making our own made us realize how over-priced the ones we were buying are 🙈 (BUT we will say the social aspect of still popping in to Ivie Juice Bar with friends and sitting around their cute tables still makes the $8 Beach Babe bowl totally worth it every once in a while). 

The best part is topping the acai bowls with granola, ALL the fresh fruit (we like strawberries, pineapple, and banana), lots of coconut flakes, and a little honey drizzled on top 👌🏻

Check out the simple recipe below and enjoy!
