Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes
I love pancakes. But, then again, I could live on carbs alone. These pancakes quickly became my favorite when I realized I could sneak in protein powder & bulk up the nutritional value! They always seem easy on my stomach, and fairly filling too! I definitely eat these for dinner regularly, and sometimes make enough to freeze for a quick and filling morning option when I don't have as much time.

Peanut butter protein pancake ingredients

Step by step instructions for protein pancakes

- Add in 2 eggs, whisk until completely combined
- Add in PB2, stir until batter is smooth
- Heat a large skillet over low/medium heat, and spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking
- Place a spoonful of batter on the skillet (note, your batter will appear thinner than traditional pancake batter, don't worry!) You can choose here to make pancakes as small or large as you prefer. I made 3 larger pancakes here.

- Flip pancake, and cook for another 1-2 minutes
- Remove from heat
- Optional: Top with fruit, or dip in syrup or creamy peanut butter
