Protein-Packed Afterburn Pancakes

February 11, 2019

There is nothing more nostalgic to me than waking up on Saturday morning and cooking a batch of homemade pancakes. I find nothing more relaxing after a long and hectic week than snuggling up on the couch with a warm plate of pancakes while the smell of maple syrup wafts through my home.

Regular pancakes heighten my cravings for more carbohydrates 

But to be 100% honest, as much as I love them, they fail to keep me full and satisfied. Generally after eating a plate of pancakes, I am hungry again an hour later, and I crave more carbs than usual throughout my day. I finally realized that consuming carbohydrates—especially processed carbohydrates like pancake mixes from a box—without any protein or fat will drastically spike my blood sugar levels, which heightens my cravings for more carbohydrates.

But I wasn’t going to give up my Saturday morning pancakes that easily, and that’s why I came up with these extremely satisfying Protein-Packed Afterburn Pancakes. Made from complex carbohydrates and whole-food ingredients, and packed with 40 grams of protein per serving, these protein pancakes set me up perfectly for a successful day of eating.

Swap out the maple syrup for this…

To include a healthy fat into the mix and ditch the sugar-packed syrup, I love to combine one teaspoon of maple extract with one tablespoon of melted coconut oil, ghee, cashew butter or almond butter and drizzle over my Protein-Packed Afterburn Pancakes.

This recipe has transformed my comforting, but highly-processed, pancakes into a nutritious, balanced meal without compromising the taste!
