Protein Pancakes Are a Healthy Breakfast Option

Have you ever found yourself eating the same thing for breakfast every day, or perhaps you adore your morning meals but feel hungry only a few hours later? Healthy protein pancakes are an amazing solution – whether for breakfast or any other meal of the day!

When I was following the keto diet, I was eating a lot of eggs and bacon for breakfast (when I wasn’t intermittent fasting). Pancakes are now a weekly occurrence for my family. We still eat eggs, but our favorite breakfasts include protein-rich pancakes or overnight oats.

If you’re on a keto or low-carb diet, there are lots of low-carb pancake recipes in this article!

Feel free to cut a banana or add a handful of chocolate chips to the top of that delicious stack.

I’m so glad my Dad showed me this peanut butter trick when I was a kid.

I remember going to a friend’s home for a sleepover and wondering where the peanut butter was when they made pancakes for breakfast. I’d assumed that everyone put peanut butter on their pancakes.

Meal Prep Pancakes To Save Time

We meal prep a big batch of pancakes each week these days. This makes things simple since you may just toast, microwave, or cook them in the oven or on the stove and have a nutritious and delectable 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 uses egg whites instead of milk or liquid in the recipe to increase protein. I also enjoy mine with blueberries and pecans sweetened only with a touch of pure maple syrup or raw honey when I’m not doing the peanut butter thing (which isn’t often).

The best pancakes, of course, are homemade, but if you’re in a bind, you may get protein pancake mixes from your local grocery store and add your own personal touches. – 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 pancake mix.
