Protein Pancakes

Ah, pancakes! Whether made with fruits, or chocolate chips; doused in maple syrup or with peanut butter, pancakes sure are a delicious breakfast food. Unfortunately, they lack in the nutritional department. They are high in sugars and fats, but lack luster in many other categories. Luckily, there are variations that taste delicious and are contain a variety of beneficial nutrients.

These protein pancakes by Kaizen  are loaded with, you guessed it, protein! They are definitely a better alternative to regular pancakes and they are pretty simple to make too.
