Protein Pancakes with Almond Butter Syrup

Protein Pancakes Bites

Pancakes are a delicious crowd favorite, but sadly, they are usually not very nutritionally dense. That theory goes out the window with these Protein Pancakes, served with Almond Butter Syrup and fresh berries. Simple, tasty, filling, and clean. An excellent summer breakfast, you can eat these babies in the morning and be poolside or oceanfront by lunch without feeling weighted down. If you don’t have access to a blender, you can whip these up by hand. So get to it!
