So, it is getting cooler and cooler and rainier and rainier now that fall is in its full swing. And what better way to start a rainy day out than not having to wake up and leave the coziness of your bed. But, alas, some of us have to work, and I don’t know about you, but I find it pretty difficult having to wake up and go to work without my coffee and my protein.
Lately I want to take my protein in а universally liked form, that of pancakes. I have found so many Easy 3 Minutes from Scratch American Pancake Recipes, and so many of them were for pancakes packed with protein that I think I will use MyGreatRecipes forever! Seriously, there were so many pancake recipe ideas that I couldn’t decide on one.
Of course nothing says protein like quinoa, and only until recently I had no idea it existed let alone it made for so good pancakes. But we are never too old to learn, so I figured why not try a batch of the Protein Quinoa Pancakes. Honestly, I don’t know if I have ever tried something yummier in my life. The quinoa and the bananas together with the coconut sugar and the Greek yogurt are definitely a combination that should be celebrated. I find it convenient that they are not taking too much of my time, and are an instant energizer, so If you are aiming at big fat pancakes that are sure to keep you going throughout the day without the burden of overeating, then sure you’ll find these the right choice for you. Trust me, they are hands down the best protein pancakes I’ve tasted.
Peanut Butter Flaxseed Pancakes
I might not have been familiar with quinoa, but peanut butter is definitely something I have always been grateful for. I remember the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches mom would put in our lunch-boxes when me and my brother were young. She always said, peanut butter will keep your bellies full, and by the time you get home you will have just enough room left for our family dinner. Following my mom’s advice, I use peanut butter whenever I want an instant appetite sating and it is just why I use it in lazy rainy mornings. The Peanut Butter Flaxseed Pancakes are not only protein-packed, but incredibly healthy and ridiculously tasty.
I know that whenever I start my day out with a stack of these, it will be a really good day and I will be in a radiant mood that will keep any gloominess away. Now, if you are a night owl who can sleep in until 1 p.m., good for you, but if you are a night owl that has to go to work early in the morning, then maybe one of these recipes can help you wake up and go to work as fresh as a daisy!
