Smoothies have become my default summer morning option, and they’ve been doing right by me so far. I get a nice dose of protein to start my day, a cool drink to battle the rising temperatures, and the satisfaction of knowing I fed myself a healthy breakfast. But sometimes … sometimes I’d rather not drink my breakfast. Sometimes I want something warm and comforting, like sausages, or fried eggs, or yes, even grits. Mostly, though, when I want something warm, I want pancakes. Which is a bit tricky when I’m also avoiding gluten.
Enter these Lemon Blueberry High Protein Pancakes from TK member Lacey. These pancakes may masquerade as a breakfast splurge but deep inside, they’re actually good for you. And flourless, too! In fact, the ingredient list bears a striking resemblance to many a smoothie recipe. At only slightly more than 100 calories and 13 grams of protein per pancake, it wins a spot on my breakfast menu rotation.
Thanks for sharing this, Lacey! Now I know what to make when the pancake urge hits. Click on the photo above to get the printable!
Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!
