Protein Pancakes – 3 Ways

IMG_1505Everyone loves a great weekend breakfast! For me, weekends are meant for spending  quality time with my husband and 3 boys. And what better way than 3 different types of wholesome, healthy pancakes!

These pancakes are a family favourite. I feel good serving them because they are delicious and nutritious, and the first 2-3 ingredients you are sure to have on hand. I like to try different fruits and veggies in my pancakes to add extra flavour and nutrition. Below are my 3 favourite varieties.

Top pancakes with mixed berries, almond butter and coconut cream, or any other toppings of your choosing. Mmm…

    • Hi Joyce, these pancakes are not fluffy like regular pancakes, they are a bit of a different consistency. That being said, they are super yummy! Give them a try and let me know what you think 🙂
