Offering new solutions for breakfast is one of the most common strategies that our nutrition coaches implement with clients. For many of us, our go-tos (often marketed as breakfast foods) are too high in carbohydrates. And high-carb meals tend to leave our energy and blood sugar unstable and are less than ideal if you have a weight or fat loss goal.

In this industry, protein pancakes are definitely a "thing" as they feed that comfort food craving (that many of us have), and sort of fake your body into thinking it’s eating something sweet when it's actually well-balanced and high in protein (ideal for morning hours).

You could opt to search for a few protein pancake recipes on your own, but we’d love for you to try our number one go-to below. We’ve found that many of the recipes out there either don’t taste that great or don't fit the right macronutrient breakdown. This specific recipe was created by a dietitian (and master trainer) and is one of the most shared recipes amongst our staff and clients.

Check it out and enjoy. We’ve also included a few healthy options for toppings too!
