Looking for something delicious to make for breakfast, but tired of eating the same old thing? Or, maybe you love your breakfast foods, but you feel hungry just a few hours after you eat. Healthy protein pancakes are a great solution – for breakfast or any time of day!

When I was following the keto plan I ate a lot of eggs and bacon for breakfast (when I wasn’t intermittent fasting). But our family enjoys pancakes on a weekly basis now. We still eat eggs but our favorite breakfasts are protein-packed pancakes or overnight oats.

If you’re following a low-carb or keto plan there are plenty of low-carb pancake recipes here!

How To Eat Protein Pancakes

Quick, everyone who grew up slathering peanut butter on your pancakes raise your hand! And raise is high because if you haven’t experienced the mind-blowing deliciousness that is PB on pancakes then after reading this post you’ll want to whip some up stat. Because there’s nothing like it.

Go ahead and slice up a banana or throw on a handful of chocolate chips to top off that delicious stack.

What a sight to behold. Am I right?

So thankful my Dad taught me this peanut butter trick when I was a little girl.

I remember going to a friend’s house for a sleepover and wondering where the peanut butter was when they served pancakes for breakfast. I thought, doesn’t everyone put peanut butter on their pancakes?

Meal Prep Pancakes To Save Time

Nowadays we meal prep a big batch of pancakes for the week. This makes things easy because you simply heat them up in the toaster, microwave, oven, or stove and you have a healthy, delicious breakfast.

One of my daughters loves to grab her cake and go…sort of like a Poptart, only much healthier!

When my husband makes pancakes he replaces the milk or liquid in the recipe with egg whites for extra protein. When I’m not doing the peanut butter thing (which is rare) I also love mine with blueberries and pecans, sweetened with a hint of pure maple syrup or raw honey.

And, of course, the best pancakes are homemade, but, if you’re in a pinch, you can buy protein pancake mixes at your local grocery store and throw in your favorite ingredients – we like berries, nuts, and chia seeds. Sam’s Club has a great option that we keep stocked in our pantry. It’s the Krusteaz Buttermilk.
