Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day (besides dessert 😉 ) but this protein pancake recipe takes it to the next level. I'm sure if you google "protein pancakes" you'll find a million different recipes but none like this one.
First off, it's made with all real ingredients (no powders, artificial sweeteners, etc). Second, it's high in protein and also provides some carbohydrate. (FYI, the best times during the day to consume carbs are in the morning and pre/post workout) And third, these pancakes come out super fluffy thanks to the greek yogurt.
So what are you waiting for? Go whip some up! Happy Saturday everyone :)
