A warm, mile-high stack of pancakes is a welcomed awakening at 8 a.m. In fact, this light, fluffy comfort food is worth chowing down on all day, every day. So why don’t ya? When you’re feeling a bit sluggish at 3 p.m., reach for some midday flapjacks to literally flip your frown upside down. And unlike that box of donuts in the break room, these medallions won’t zap your energy an hour later. Their whole-grain goodness and sweet protein power are a lifesaver – right when you need it!
Raspberry-Vanilla Snack-Attack Flapjacks
Makes about 4 pancakes/1 serving
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
¼ cup vanilla almond milk
Raspberries and 1 tablespoon cashew butter
- In a small bowl, blend all ingredients together until the batter is thick and smooth. Add more almond milk, if needed.
- Spoon batter onto a greased pan or griddle and cook over medium-low heat until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
- In another small bowl, mix protein syrup ingredients until powder is completely dissolved. Add more almond milk to create a creamy, somewhat runny consistency – like syrup!
- Once all batter is cooked, pour protein syrup over the stack, top with fresh raspberries and a tablespoon of cashew butter.
- Eat up!
