Love pancakes? Who doesn’t! You’re going to love this healthy, Fit-inspired alternative to traditional pancakes. It has all of the flavor and texture, but none of the sugar and carbs. Enjoy!
I used to make protein pancakes like it was my job
Actually, it was my job! I had a protein pancake company for about 3 years. Man, I put so much blood sweat and tears (many tears) into that company, but it wasn’t to be. I had picked a market I wasn’t really that interested in serving (the bodybuilding community) and I had a product that was expensive to make, and hard to scale. I got to a point where I had to take on investors or cut the cord and while I loved running my own business, it was time to let it go.
That was hard.
But now I’m an expert in protein pancakes and food start ups, so all is not lost 🙂
Meanwhile, it’s Saturday afternoon and I’ve got some time on my hands as I’m sitting up in bed, sick as a dawg. I was supposed to be entertaining tonight and I created all these great ideas for healthy, clean hors-d’oeuvres. I even spent the extra time googling how to spell the word hors-d’oeuvres.
However, tonight will not happen. Well, there will still be a “tonight”, but my par-tay is a bust as I’m sick in bed. But you already know that. And you’ve heard me complain about several times this week. So I’ve decided to pull this recipe out of the archives to share with ya’ll as I’m not feeling up for recipe development at the moment. It’s not the exact recipe of my pancakes from the Procakes days, but it’s close.
I made this version of protein pancakes for my husband the other day and he loved them. If you have kids who struggle to get enough protein in their diets – this idea is a winner winner (better than a) chicken dinner.
