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.

The Perfect Christmas Breakfast

Isn't having family around for the holidays just the best?!

The get togethers, the laughs, the games, and the FOOD. We love it all! 

We know a HUGE part of entertaining, especially around this time of year, involves food, and making sure any guests you have staying with you are well fed. Breakfast can often be the most hectic meal to have prepared, since it needs to be ready early in the morning. 

And sometimes that means the cook doesn't get to sit around the table and eat with everyone because they're slaving away in the kitchen...

This Baked French Toast is the perfect meal to serve a lot of people, while allowing everyone to be at the table together. You prepare everything the night before, and then just pop it in the oven in the morning!

 There are a ton of Baked French Toast recipes out there, and we've tried a lot of them, but this one takes the prize!
