Chocolate protein pancakes? Yes, please.

By now y’all may have guessed that I love playing outdoors. But I’m also fairly obsessed with fitness and eating well.

Don’t get me wrong. I love cold beer

As I’ve gotten older I’m starting to like cooking a lot more, and I’m always trying to find ways to make comfort food recipes healthier.

ENTER THE PROTEIN PANCAKE.

I have fixed these suckers so many ways, and I think I’ve finally found a recipe that I can stick to. Everyone knows pancakes rock. They just aren’t good for you. Or rather, they don’t have any nutritional value. Plus, you’re hungry an hour after eating them.

Try these for a protein and fiber wallop after your morning workout. Your body will thank you.

Bacon Betty Protein Pancakes
1 serving
34.5g protein
13.4 g fiber
1.5g fat
210 calories

1 scoop protein powder (vanilla gives you a basic flavor)
2 tsp psyllium fiber
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 egg whites
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
Splash of water to thin out, add more if needed as you mix

Pour spoonfuls into a pan sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat. Hint: it’s easier to make silver dollar sized cakes so you can flip them without getting sloppy.

Variations:
Add a few tablespoons of pumpkin purée and some pumpkin pie spice
Add small pieces of fruit, like bananas or blueberries
Use chocolate protein powder (see below)
Top with a drizzle of honey or agave syrup
