If you follow the health scene on Instagram at all, you’re probably familiar with protein pancakes. Everywhere you turn there’s a beautifully crafted picture – and maybe some pictures that aren’t so beautiful – of different types of protein pancakes. I know what you may be thinking: “protein pancakes? Aren’t pancakes mostly carbohydrates and not healthy at all?” Well, not if you make them our way.
These pancakes are not only loaded with protein, they are so simple and delicious that you can easily whip them up for breakfast (or lunch or dinner) on any day of the week. Pancakes are no longer your Sunday morning treat.
