Macro Friendly Protein Pancake No Banana

Posted on

Breakfast, Recipes

If you are here, I am assuming you LOVE pancakes, just as much as I do! As a kid growing up, I always loved having pancakes on the weekend. However, as an adult, I have realized that pancakes often take up a lot of calories and carbohydrates from my day, without leaving me feeling super full.

I was on the hunt for a protein-packed pancake! One thing I found challenging in my search was finding recipes that didn’t contain bananas or oats. I love both of these foods, and they can be great additions in your day or even pancake, but I really wanted to find a pancake that would be lower in calories.

That's exactly when I came up with this recipe idea! It's an excellent source of protein, the flavor and fluffiness are still there, and I can easily balance this into my macros for the day! I know you are going to love this new twist on the classic pancake!
