3-Ingredient Healthy Protein Pancakes

3-Ingredient Healthy Protein Pancakes

Pancakes are so not my thing.  Don’t get me wrong; I DO like them.  But they’re not a craving for me.  Same goes for waffles and French toast; they taste SO delicious, but they’re just not something I want all the time.  I’m more of a savory breakfast gal – give me an omelet with spicy salsa or some migas or chilaquiles (are you sensing a Tex-Mex theme here?) any day!  Nate is the pancake lover in our family, and I think he more than makes up for my lack of craving them – it’s called balance I suppose!

 

Another thing I’m so not into is protein powder.  I’ve tried a ton of different brands and flavors, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s really not the powder, it’s me.  I don’t love the idea of having protein powder rather than food of some kind.  Kind of like I’d rather eat a piece of fruit rather than drink juice, you know?  Another difference between Nate and myself – he looooooooves juice.  I’d rather just have water

Ingredients

  • These cakes are full of protein and fiber, and it’s all food – not protein powder.  The great thing is that you can add tons of mix-ins if you want, or just eat ‘em as-is.  My favorite thing to do, despite the pictures above, is to spread them with a little peanut butter and lay really thin slices of apple on top.  SO GOOD.  Another great thing is that they freeze well – just let them cool completely, then stack them up with pieces of parchment or wax paper in between.  Put them in the freezer in an air-tight container or bag and then just pop them in the toaster when you’re ready to go!  So simple and so delicious and so healthy!
