Arbonne Protein Pancakes

Pancakes!!It’s hard to have a bad day when you start it with them 🙂  Whenever I am craving pancakes I whip up my protein pancakes to keep the carbs low, protein high, and yumminess in tact 🙂 

Of course there are so many different ways to spice up a batch of pancakes…. The base recipe is below, which is super tasty on its own, but I also added some suggestions on how to take them to the next level! 

3 Scoops Arbonne Protein (I use vanilla)

2 eggs 

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder 

1/2 tsp vanilla extract 

Dash of Cinnamon

Splash of almond milk if needed to thin the batter 

Here is what you get with these yummy pancakes!

P  40g

C  6g

F  8g

Optional add ons:

Blueberries

Good For Life dark chocolate chips 

1/4 cup almond and 1/4 cup tapioca flour (makes thicker but also adds more carbs) 

Optional Toppings:

Full fat coconut cream (in can):  adds healthy fats and makes it creamy! 

Berries syrup:  Berry of choice, 1 tbsp pure maple syrup, 1 tbsp water, cinnamon (optional):  adds sweetness with less sugar than dowsing the syrup on!

Almond butter:  Adds healthy fat, some more protein, and of course nutty yumminess 

Toppings to avoid:

‘Sugar free’ syrup:  processed with artificial sweeteners 

LOTS of syrup:  too much syrup takes these high protein, low carb pancakes and turns them into a sugar bomb that will leave you with sugar cravings and crashes 

Banana: although they are tasty, bananas have A LOT of carbs/sugar and are not good for the waistline or even digestion for some folks.  If you love bananas I recommend having frozen chopped bananas on hand and warming up a few to top rather than adding an entire banana. 

If you add any other healthy toppings let me know! Always looking for new ways to complete my favorite way to get the best meal in for the day! 

ENJOY!
