PB&J PROTEIN PANCAKES

PB&J PROTEIN PANCAKES

I’m celebrating “Peanut Butter and Jelly Day” a day early with this glorious stack of PB&J Protein 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! They’re also gluten-free, dairy-free, high in protein and low in fat. Every time I make these, I’m stuck on them for a few days because they are just that good.

PB&J PROTEIN PANCAKES

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 closer to powdered peanut butter than protein powder, so I don’t recommend substituting whey, casein, or vegan protein in this recipe without other adjustments.

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 two tablespoons of Lean Body for Her Peanut Protein with water to your desired consistency and drizzle over top! But I love my fats and I love my peanut butter 😉

Pumpkin and white chocolate is one of my favorite fall flavor combos! These Pumpkin Pie Protein Truffles taste like pumpkin pie rolled into balls and smothered with rich white chocolate. They're also gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and easily made low carb and keto. So irresistible I've made two batches already! Literally cannot distinguish these from full sugar treats.
