WCT Power Cakes Pancakes Recipe

Benefits of Power Cakes:

Who doesn't like pancakes? Did you know that there is better, healthier, and tastier alternative to regular pancakes?

Power Cakes aka protein pancakes are just that. They are an excellent alternative to the traditional Aunt Jemima pancakes you ate as a child. (Maybe you still eat them) As the name suggests, power cakes are loaded with protein which helps keep you satiated throughout the morning hours. They are very easy to make and could be meal prepped and stored in the refrigerator to take with you on the go. You can also add a few extra ingredients to further kick-start your morning such as peanut butter.

Why not give them a try?

 ½ cup Milk (Almond, Soy, Coconut, Whole)

1 tbsp peanut butter (or any nut butter)

20g Chocolate Whey Protein (or any type of protein)
