Cinnamon Banana Walnut Protein Pancakes

Cinnamon banana walnut protein pancakes

There’s really nothing more satisfying for a weekend brunch or weekday breakfast than a big stack of pancakes.

But since most traditional pancake recipes are full of little else but a ton of white flour, sugar, and oil, they tend to leave you feeling overfull yet surprisingly hungry just a short time later.

So unlike regular pancakes, these cinnamon banana walnut protein pancakes will leave you feeling full and satisfied, yet still energized enough to tackle your day. They’re moist, sweet (but not too sweet), and delicious, not to mention they have a ton of protein, good-for-you carbs, and healthy fats to fuel you through your workouts and life.

Healthy Pumpkin Protein Waffle Recipe

Pumpkin protein waffles

There’s something comforting and amazing about a good Belgian-style waffle, especially on a chilly day.

Or a weekend morning. Or, really, any time of the day.

And although traditional Belgian waffles that you can get at any normal breakfast restaurant have a ridiculous amount of sugar in them (especially when you add a heaping portion of whipped cream on top), waffles are not inherently an unhealthy choice. In fact, they can be really healthy. Especially when they’re packed with good stuff like pumpkin, oats, and flax seeds like these ones are.

Give this healthy pumpkin protein waffle recipe a try next time you’re craving waffles:

Five Ingredient Blueberry Pancake Recipe (High Protein & Gluten-Free!)

I love almost all kinds of fruit, but I think if I had to choose just one to eat I’d have to pick blueberries.

There’s just something about the juicy little berries that lure me in every single time. I like to buy that giant container at Trader Joe’s and just eat them for days.

I love them on oatmeal. In smoothies. On salads. And of course, in pancakes.

These blueberry pancakes are incredibly easy to make, and you probably already have the ingredients sitting around your house to make them. They’re perfect for breakfast, post-workout, or even as a late night snack (yes, I’ve done this). And you can eat an entire stack without feeling guilty!

Easy & Delicious Three Ingredient Protein Crepe Recipe

In case you hadn’t noticed, I have a slight obsession with breakfast foods.

In fact, the majority of the recipes on the site are fairly breakfast-y, or at least could be eaten as part of a well balanced breakfast. That’s partly because I have a huge sweet tooth, but also because the time when I crave sweet stuff the most is in the morning and the evening.

The rest of the day I pretty much want savory, high protein, veggie-filled foods, but those times of the day are when I just want all the sugary foods in the world.

So rather than eating actual tons of calorie dense, low nutrient, high sugar foods around these times, I’ve learned how to make my own sweet-yet-healthy substitutes.

These protein crepes are AWESOME for when you want a super low carb breakfast, or when you want something filling, satisfying, yet still sweet at night (my favorite time to eat them). They’re super easy to make, and require only a few basic ingredients. Plus, you can fill them with anything you like to make them extra delicious!

The first batch …

Protein Pancake Recipe: The (Real) Breakfast of Champions

There’s just something about pancakes that makes them the ultimate comfort food. 

Maybe it’s because they remind us of being kids, or maybe it’s because they go so well with bacon (or meatless bacon) and eggs.

Whatever it is, they’re delicious smothered in syrup, covered in fruit, or even topped with peanut butter if that’s your thing.

But, unfortunately, pancakes aren’t always the healthiest option out there. Typically loaded with white flour, sugar, and tons of carbs, they’re usually something to avoided or eaten in only small quantities on a few special days of the year.

That’s where these four-ingredient protein pancakes come in. They taste just like the real thing, but are packed with protein, and will keep you satisfied and full for hours.

Plus, you can eat the entire stack for a mere 314 calories!
