Blueberry & Banana Protein Pancakes

blueberry pancakes

 

Everyone loves pancakes.  They epitomize comfort food: sweet, delicious, make you feel warm and fuzzy, remind you of being a kid again.  That’s what they do for me anyway.  So maybe not everyone loves pancakes, but I sure do!

I’ve been tweaking my protein pancakes recipe for years, and I finally got it right.  It’s even toddler approved, which is a huge bonus.  The macros make them perfect post workout.  You can even throw some maple syrup on there for some extra goodness in your mouth.  So, with no further ado, here is the recipe:
