Pancake recipe: High protein pancakes are a perfect choice

See also

Pancakes are always a good choice – for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner. When the scent of pancakes is in the air it seems like everyone gathers around to get the very first ones off the griddle. There is nothing better than the warm, fluffiness of a short stack of homemade pancakes; they truly defy description. Slather them with butter and drizzle with syrup and . . . well, what more needs to be said?

Many who are limiting their intake of carbohydrates may think that pancakes can no longer be part of their lives. Well, along comes the high protein version. This recipe uses very few ingredients to add carbohydrates; most ingredients are high in protein. The resulting pancakes are no lesser for it – these cakes are delicious. Skeptics will never know the difference.

This is an easy recipe as well, especially if you use a blender. Put all the ingredients in the container of your blender and blend it for just a minute. It gives you a smooth batter in an easy-to-pour container. This recipe can be used for either pancakes or waffles. Note that the pancakes are thin, so making a lot of little ones is the best way to enjoy them.
