This protein pancake is literally THE BOMB! Regularly protein pancakes just taste like gross protein powder and have an awful spongy texture that I just can't stand, but these are great! Sometimes I add in some mashed banana and throw in a tablespoon of flax seed :) ** If your looking for a natural sweet sauce, take some frozen blueberries and put them in the microwave for about a minute give a quick stir and pour over top of your pancake! **
