3 ingredient protein pancakes

3 ingredient protein pancakes

These three-ingredient protein pancakes are the simplest way to eat a healthy, protein-packed breakfast especially if you don’t like the taste of protein powders. These pancakes are gluten-free, sugar-free, contain more than 12.5 grams of protein, all your amino acids, and are under 400 calories. I make these at least twice a week, so it’s worth it to invest in an immersion blender. Kids love them!
