Who doesn’t love pancakes? When I was a kid, my Grandma Ronnie would sometimes make us pancakes for dinner and it was always the best treat! Since I started eating healthier and cut out a lot of the sugary, carb heavy foods from my diet, pancakes are something I’ve (*sob!) given up for the most part. But, when I partnered with Premier Protein for a segment on recipes you can make with their yummy shakes, I was blown away by the taste, texture and how good for you these pancakes really are! My favorite kind get crispy on the edges and these are utter perfection! (I did put a little bit of butter in my frying pan, btw.)
The shakes are pretty awesome on their own– and with only 1 gram of sugar, 160 calories and a whopping 30 grams of protein, there’s zero guilt and none of that chalky aftertaste you sometimes get with protein shakes. I made this recipe on set for my friend Tony Pagnotti from Fox 45 in Baltimore– he loved them so much he came back into the studio after our segment was done, looking for more!!
By the way, not many people make me look tiny (I’m almost 6 feet tall!) Tony is the kind of guy I love cooking for because he tells you how much he loves your food! The pancakes (and pizza) definitely did not disappoint.
Here’s the recipe— feel free to add in blueberries, chocolate chips or nuts for even more texture and flavor. Check out the segment on Fox 45 below!
