Protein Pancakes - Take 23
Updated: Mar 17
Protein pancakes can be done 1000 different ways! Lately, the hot mixes are your Kodiak Cakes, flapJacked, Birch Benders and a myriad of other brands. Most can be found, at this point, at your Kroger, Giant Eagle and so forth. Our favorite local supplement store, Supzilla, also has a few you can grab! Anyways, defeating the purpose of this post.
So, if you're home and DO decide to make your own protein pancakes 'from scratch', this is an easy option to use a simple mix that you may have lying around.
I say 'take 23' because I've posted several of these in the past. Sometimes the protein can make the pancakes super dense and flatten them. This one is minimally dense and flat. HAHA. But really, when trying to stick to a plan and you MUST have pancakes, often, this is a great recipe to keep your brain and your belly satisfied. It is also an awesome post-workout meal. I've snacked on these multiple times in the past week after lifting. #allthegains. I can also say huge manly men have tried these and still ate them...and said they liked them.
Speaking of #gains, for this recipe I used my Supzilla bulk protein - just chocolate. No qualms with it, but stoked to try it with my new Life Time whey! (Shameless work plug coming - Life Time Whey use code '213420' for 10% off!)
I debated posting this video due to multi-tasking with my kiddo, but that is the purpose here! To show you how easy it is and that even when life is happening, we have to make time for our nutrition!
