I’m a total sucker for pancakes. There’s no end to what you can top them with: maple syrup, peanut butter, chocolate syrup, coconut whipped cream, applesauce, yogurt or fresh fruit.
These pancakes are relatively easy to make. All you need is what you probably already have in your pantry and a few other cheap ingredients.
These pancakes are packed full of heart-healthy protein and carbs, making it a great after workout breakfast.
These pancakes are amazing with the maple peanut butter sauce. It’s gooey and delicious. It made the already incredibly delicious pancakes even better, which I didn’t think was even possible.
I used to come home after school and eat peanut butter by the spoonful right out of the jar. I sure am glad that I grew out of that… for my stomach’s sake. But, sometimes a girl just needs a few spoonfuls of peanut butter. When you’re having peanut butter cravings, like I have pretty much every day, try making these protein-packed pancakes. It works like a charm.
This recipe is enough for 2-3 people. I split this stack with my dad, but it was hard for us to finish all of it. It’s very filling, so you may want to stick to 2 small pancakes per person.
These amazing pancakes are:
