What are protein pancakes?

If you’re tired of using your protein powder to only make shakes – this is a tasty and delicious option to get that protein in. These protein pancakes are made without flour and sugar.  Instead they are made with banana, egg, and protein powder – for a really healthy and tasty breakfast. I love making these a part of my weight loss journey.

Let’s Talk Protein Powder

There are a lot of protein powders out there – so choosing a quality product can sometimes be hard.  I likeBiochem protein because they have been in business for over 15 years, and the brand is #1 in whey proteins.  Aside from their whey protein they also have a vegan powder that is also delicious. This line is certified gluten free – which isn’t always true when it comes to protein powder.  I know I’m getting a quality ingredient with this brand – all ingredients are sourced in the U.S., and the powders also include 20 amino acids. I’ve chosen the natural flavor of the Whey Protein Isolate + Joint varierty for this recipe – but they have a wide range of flavors to suit your taste.

Collagen is so good for you – which is another reason I love this particular protein powder.  It really helps with support for joint comfort and flexibility.
