Protein Power Lunch

I just got home from a “Piloxing” class at the fitness center, and I am RAVENOUS! Running 14 minutes to and from the gym, with a 50 minute fitness class sandwiched in between will give a girl an appetite!

I have a brief hour before I have to go to work, so I whipped up a delicious, protein filled pancake!

Head over to Peas and Thank You, where Sarah (affectionately known as “Mama Pea”) used her genius to create some quick and easy protein-packed pancakes!

My alterations to the recipe:

  • I used Chocolate Protein Powder (100% Whey)
  • I added in 1 TBSP cocoa powder to amp up the chocolate flavor
  • I added 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum to help soften the final pancakes
  • I added 1/2 TBSP honey instead of the sweeteners listed in the original recipe

I topped my ‘cakes with a drizzle of honey and a packet of roasted nuts!
