PB&J PROTEIN PANCAKES

PB&J PROTEIN PANCAKES

I’m celebrating “Peanut Butter and Jelly Day” a day early with this glorious stack of peanut butter pancakes topped with smashed berries and drizzled in melted peanut butter. The pancakes are so tender and fluffy – easily my best and simplest pancake recipe! Every time I make these, I’m stuck on them for a few days because they are just that good. 

The key ingredient is Jamie Eason Lean Body for Her Peanut Protein, which all-natural and can be used as a peanut spread, sauce, or mixed into shakes (use code “SARAH10” for 10% all orders from www.labrada.com)! I have tried this recipe with powdered peanut butter, but you need a little additional sweetener and it’s still not exactly the same. Jamie’s Peanut Protein is not equivalent to peanut butter-flavored protein powder, so I don’t recommend substituting your favorite whey, casein, or vegan protein in this recipe without other adjustments. Your pancakes will come out too dry!

The best part – you don’t even need jelly or syrup! Just heat up some berries and mash them up with a little sweetener. If you want to keep the fat content lower, mix 2 tbsp. Lean Body for Her Peanut Protein with water to your desired consistency and drizzle over top! But oh, how I love my fats and I love my peanut butter 😉

Here’s the recipe – I’d love your comments below if you try it!
