Chocolate Protein Pancakes + Peanut Butter Protein Bars
This post is sponsored by iHerb. All opinions are, as always, my own.
Long time no see, but university (and the most dreadful finals season) have kept me a very busy bee. However, I’ve been getting a lot of requests to upload the recipes for both these lovely chocolate pancakes and peanut butter vanilla protein bars ever since I first posted about them on my Instagram, so here they go!
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been crazy about going to the gym lately. Those spinning classes got me hooked, and I’m a big fan of HIIT as well. The drawback? I have such a packed schedule come this time of the year, with all university, work, finals, looking for a new place to live in, and now the gym, that I’m always on my feet. That means that I have to make sure that my caloric intake is enough to sustain such an active day and keep me sharp both mentally and physically. Cue: deliciously fluffy chocolate protein pancakes for breakfast and peanut butter protein bars as a post-workout snack!
