I admit, I am a breakfast food junkie. Oats and eggs have special places in my heart, but I am absolutely addicted to protein pancakes. I will gladly eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a late night sweet treat. They satisfy all my basic needs – 1) easy to prepare 2) filling 3)healthy 4) taste like dessert! What more could a girl ask for?
I’ve outdone myself with this new protein pancake recipe. And I didn’t think that could be done after concocting these Pumpkin Pie Protein Pancakes. I was inspired by Rootz Nutrition Chocolate Banana Nut Protein-Superfood powder. They sent me a couple samples and as soon as I opened the bag, smelled the powder, and tasted the stuff bare, my life had changed. I mean, really, what protein powder tastes good straight off your dipped finger? The stuff is a game changer.
Wait, I haven’t even gotten to the best part! Their Protein-Superfood is paleo, gluten-free, made with no artificial ingredients, and is stocked full of, you guessed it, superfoods. I don’t know about you, but when I think of superfood blends, I imagine a chalky, green powder that you have to plug your nose to get down. Not Rootz Nutrition! Their blend has anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fatty acids, muscle-building protein, bone-strengthening calcium and magnesium, satiating fiber, immune-boosting zinc, along with other essential nutrients like iron, potassium, and Vitamins B, C, & E that I need as an active woman. AND it tastes straight up like a chocolate banana nut muffin. Sounds too good to be true but trust me on this. Or don’t, just check out their ingredient list and then try it for yourself in this delicious gluten-free, paleo, no sugar-added recipe!*
