Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes

Ever have those days where you got up late, barely have time to brush your teeth and are starving all at the same time?  Stressed about what to grab to eat on the run or even worse you don’t have the chance to eat at all and then you find yourself in that early morning meeting and your stomach is saying hello to your boss?  How so some Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes sound?

Not gonna lie this is a true story!

This recipe for protein pancakes is super versatile and can be made with either chocolate or vanilla flavoured protein powders and is super quick to make.  Which again for us moms running around all the time is an important qualifier for any recipe to make it to the menu – am I right?

I like to make a double or triple batch of these and then freeze.  This recipes sizes up evenly so just double or triple the ingredient measurements and it works out great.  I typically use Vegan Chocolate Shakeology so depending on the protein powder you are using you may need to add a little more or less depending on how dense your powder is so start with 1 scoop for the standard recipe and add more as you need to so as to achieve the pancake batter like consistency.

Once your batter is all set scoop 2 tbsp of pancake batter out per pancake into a pan.  You can certainly make them as big as you like but for portion control I like to know that two pancakes of this size is considered a serving.  For those following the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan I count 2 pancakes as 1/2 1 2

You can gobble these up warm right out of the pan or let cool completely and freeze for up to a month.

So what is so quick about these things and why do I love the so much that they are always in my freezer?  Because as you are scrambling out of the house all you need to do is grab to and put them in a baggie or container and out the door.  I have been known to carry them in my purse for an afternoon snack as well… Hey it may not be fancy but it is better than hitting a drive thru!

As a sales rep who is often on the road – healthy portable snack solutions are my jam!

If you do have a little more time to spare toast up a peanut butter protein pancake or two and add some extra peanut butter or maybe even a little jam for a PB&J version.  Or if you want to get real fancy put the jam in the middle of two protein pancakes for a peanut butter protein PB&J sandwich!

Enjoy and live well my friends!
