I have been a long time fan of protein pancakes, ever since I first discovered the concept while working at a breakfast restaurant about seven years ago.
The only way I was able to stay full throughout hours and hours of serving was to show up early and power up with a protein-packed breakfast. Often times, I would arrive at least 30-45 mins. before my shift, just to ensure I got in a good meal in before the day started.
My beloved breakfast place was known for its huge and fluffy pancakes. They were literally the size of my head, and filled with everything delicious from chocolate chips, bananas, and granola to pumpkin around the holidays! When I realized my waistline also started to show my love for them, I knew I needed to find different alternatives to enjoy pancakes as often as I’d like.
It wasn’t long before a co-worker introduced me to protein pancakes. Somehow, we talked our cooks into making us protein pancakes with a base of oatmeal and eggs. Sometimes, I would ask for a regular or whole wheat pancake (smaller than the standard full plate size), and hand the cook a scoop of my favorite protein powder to mix into the batter. This way, I was getting plenty of protein and carbs to start the day!
While both of these options are relatively easy, why make things more difficult?
Ladies and gents, may I present the easiest protein pancakes you will ever make!
They’re as simple as 1…
(Measure your desired serving size: 1/2 cup makes 2 pancakes.)
(Add water or milk – get creative and add bananas or chocolate chips! – and whisk.)
(Cook on stovetop for about 2 minutes, or until mix gets bubbly, then flip.)
Top your cakes with fresh fruit and maple syrup for breakfast, or leave them dry to take with you to snack on later! I have been loving these cakes for both meals and snacks lately.
I’m pretty sure I actually squealed when I read the label and saw the words “protein pancake mix” together, and was excited to dig into them as soon as I could!
Protein pancakes… already combined and ready to go, y’all. These are so convenient and right up my alley! I have been enjoying the Cinnamon Spice flavor, but they also come in Chocolate Chip. (I know, I’m drooling too.)
