Finally, healthy pancakes you don’t need to watch over or flip! 20 minutes in the oven and you’ve got a perfect protein pancake every time.
It’s sweet, fluffy, and kicks the ass of any boring french-style crepe pancake. Also, if you’re the “sugar and lemon type” you should be ashamed – try these instead. They’ll make your biceps grow, your glutes pop!
There’s two portions of fruit in these (not lemon!) with a whole banana and some berry goodness. The pumpkin seeds on top add a moreish texture and toasted-nut-type flavour. If you’re a man pumpkin seeds will help stop you from going bald too.
These are super high protein, high fiber, refined sugar free and gluten-free. If you care about that sort of thing. You could pretty much breakfast, lunch and dinner on these things and I wouldn’t judge you.
This protein pancake recipe makes a giant strongman-size portion. I’d eat an entire one, and with extra toppings. But you may struggle so feel free to divide the ingredient amounts as you see fit (unless you smell a challenge here!!).
