Healthy High protein pancakes

High protein pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast meals or snack especially when I’m trying to curb a sweet tooth.

When you top them with strawberries and fat-free whip cream, it tastes just like strawberry shortcake but with protein for satiety.

I prefer to eat mine with strawberries only however you can top it with any of your favorite berries or sweetener.

You can use this protein pancake recipe as a base and add a few slices of bananas into the batter mixture to make banana protein pancakes too!

I use a variety of protein powders but for this recipe, it’s made with 180 Nutrition’s Grass Fed Whey Protein Isolates.

I’m in love with this particular protein powder since there are no added sweeteners, it’s low lactose and free of added hormones.

We add protein powder to smoothies, oatmeal, cakes, bread and of course pancakes in our healthy recipes.

I don’t know about you but I find a lot of protein powders too sweet for my liking and with too many filler ingredients.

180 Nutrition’s protein powder is pure protein, is easy on the stomach and super fine that it dissolves easily in water.

I can’t promise that you will get the same fluffy consistency with other protein powders but you can always give it a try with this recipe.
