This easy + filling pancake takes minutes to whip up + leaves you feeling full for hours!
This is one of my go-to #breakfasts that I make weekly! You take all the ingredients, put them in a blender + into the pan the batter goes. I love this so much because it's always difficult to get enough #protein in your diet if your trying to have a lean body. Did you know your suppose to have 1 gram of protein per pound of your body weight!? So this recipe is great way to get your protein in for the day! This recipe has over 30 grams of protein in it per serving!
I used Select Protein 4 Oats protein powder. It is a whey protein powder that is suppose to be added to oatmeal. They actually discontinued the stuff so please don't try + find it! Use whatever protein powder you like + have in your kitchen. Usually whey doesn't agree with me + I usually use #vega_team Sport Protein Powder which is my favorite. I find Vega has the LEAST chalkiest texture + has good flavor for being a #vegan protein powder. It also has added #glutamine, #BCAA's, #probiotics, + #antioxidants, which is amazing for repairing your muscles after working out! You can also use whatever dairy alternative you like or use regular milk if you would like but I never recommend cow's milk.
I used #Walden's sugar free #pancake syrup, which actually tastes just like regular syrup, no joke! You can find sugar free syrups like this at supplement stores or online. There is also lots of different #sauces you can buy that are sugar free + low in fat in supplement stores. I LOVE sauce, so this is the best way to still have delicious sauces without the guilt of having sugar that is terrible for us! This is one of my tricks to eating healthy without making sacrifices because who doesn't like a pancake with syrup on it!
