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.
