    How to add protein to pancakes

    Although I’m a self diagnosed carboholic, I do realize the value of getting protein for breakfast. Not only does combining carbs with protein help you stay full for longer, it actually curbs my appetite, helping me stick to my meal plan.

    So, adding protein to foods I already love was important in my weight loss journey.

    How to add protein to pancakes

    In order to increase the amount of protein in pancakes, there are a few things you could do:

    • Add egg whites. Egg whites only deliver 17 calories, but almost 4 grams of protein.
    • Add protein powder: 1 scoop of 30 grams protein powder has around 22 grams of protein.
    • Purchase protein pancake mix, such as Kodiak cakes.
    • Add Greek yogurt. For 2/3 cup of Greek yogurt you get 20 grams of protein.
    • Add nuts and seeds. While you’ll get more calories per nut, it is a great source of protein.
    • Add peanut butter powder. I love peanut butter powder for being low in calories, and still a good source of protein.

    So, with all those protein add-in ideas, I used three of them for this peanut butter pancake recipe!

    Then, I used a mashed banana to mix it all together.
