Dial Your Breakfast Up To 10: Powerful Protein Pancakes - Start Your Day Right

A Power Protein Pancake Recipe That Prove You’re Doing Breakfast All Wrong

If you are a workout buff, hitting the weights and building your strength is just another part of your day.  In order to fuel those workouts, you need to eat.  Pancakes are an awesome way to get those calories you need to keep your progress moving forward.

I created this recipe a couple years ago out of necessity.  I work long hours, and needed a food I could cook quickly in a few minutes, pack it up, and take it with me.  Oh yeah, I also wanted it to be high in  calories, protein and able to satisfy hunger at the same time.

That's when I created Power Protein Pancakes.  With this recipe, I'm only going to give you the total calories and protein content each pancake will give you.  I'm not getting into micro-nutrients or fat content. 

Here's the breakdown:

1.5 Cups of Oatmeal
2 Large Eggs
2 Table Spoons of Peanut Butter
1 Serving of your favorite Protein Powder
A sprinkle of Brown Sugar to taste
A sprinkle of Cinnamon to taste
A splash of Vanilla 
A sprinkle of mini chocolate chips to taste

Mix all these ingredients in a bowl until smooth and combined.  Warm up your skillet to medium heat.  Coat the pan with your favorite non-stick cooking spray.  Dump the mixture into the skillet and press the mixture into a flat pancake form.  Heat both sides as you would a pancake, making sure the wet ingredients (eggs) are cooked.

Once the pancake is cooked, place on a plate to cool and eat, or cut up into quarters to take with you and munch on as a snack throughout the day.  That's it!
