I absolutely love pancakes, and the best part of my weekend is making pancakes for my family. Pancakes to me just screams out comfort food.
I wanted a recipe that was high in protein and lower in carbs, because let’s get real, eating all of our daily protein is very difficult. I am not a big meat eater, so I needed more options to get my protein in, and pancakes for dinner are my favorite.
Protein pancakes have become so popular, and they are so versatile to make. This recipe is so easy to make with only 6- ingredients. I not very big on recipes with tons of ingredients and making everything from scratch. I am always looking for easy and simple recipes. We all have busy lives, and the last thing we need is to slave in the kitchen to get a delicious meal.
Here are a few ways I have changed up my recipe
- Added blueberries
- Drop a few chocolate chips
- Add a mashed banana to the mix
- or added some oats
My favorite guilt-free pancake syrup
The moment I discovered this brand, I was so excited. Walden Farm has a variety of options of sauces, but my absolute favorite is pancake syrup. Being able to enjoy my pancakes, drizzled with syrup without the added sugars and carbs, I was one happy gal. Walden Farm pancake syrup has become a staple in my home.
Perfect meal prep option
These pancakes are perfect for meal prepping. You can make a big batch at the begging of the week and refrigerate for a week or freeze them and keep them longer. Who doesn’t like a midnight snack!
Over the years, I have changed my way of eating to flexible dieting, and it has changed my life. I no longer restrict myself from eating food that I enjoy. I have also learned to recreate my recipes with healthier options.
No need to stop enjoying the food you like. We are so lucky to have so many options to recreate our favorite recipes in a better way to suit our eating lifestyle.
