High protein, low carb diets are the rave right now (AmIRight?!?) and I have a recipe that is perfect for it! Kodiak pancakes have become a staple with my marathon training because they fill me up with all of their protein AND they taste like dessert for breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, you could totally eat these for dinner too! I mean let’s be honest, breakfast for dinner is even better than breakfast for breakfast. Now, as it is stated in the post title, these are not your average protein pancakes! I have taken it upon myself to fiddle around with some extra ingredients to make these the best darn protein pancakes you’ve ever had! Enjoy!!!!
***Just for reference, the recipe makes about 7-8 regular sized pancakes***
1 Cup Kodiak Protein Pancake Mix
1 Scoop of Vega Vanilla Protein Powder (can sub for other vanilla protein powder)
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
¼ tsp Nutmeg
1 ½ Cup Almond Milk
Peanut Butter, Almond Butter or Cashew Butter for any other nut spread for topping
A Pinch of Mini Chocolate Chips for topping
- This is pretty easy peeps! Literally combine all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the nut spread of choice and the chocolate chips.
- Heat a skillet on the stove over medium heat and ensure that the pan is indeed warm enough before starting to cook your pancakes.
- Cook pancakes and set aside4. Warm nut spread in the microwave until runny and then drizzle on top of your pancakes Finally, sprinkle a pinch of mini chocolate chips on top.
TOO FREAKING GOOD TO LEAVE ANY ON THE PLATE!!!!
