Fuel Up for the Day with Choc-Chip Protein Pancakes

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – but it can get a little boring! Toast or cereal might be all you have time for if you’re rushing out the door in the morning, and this isn’t exactly…mouthwatering, to say at the very least. We get it, time is of the essence – but this doesn’t mean you’re doomed to a future of boring, bland brekkies. If you’re looking to treat yourself to something a little more satisfying, these protein pancakes are a delicious option. Not only do they taste amazing, but they’re also loaded with nutrients, giving you the perfect kickstart to your day.

Although super quick and easy to make, it will take a few extra minutes than pouring cereal and milk into a bowl. So make up a big batch when you have a few moments, indulge in a scrumptious serving of warm, fluffy pancakes, and freeze the rest for later. Simply reheat in the microwave, oven or toaster and garnish with your favourite toppings. This is the perfect meal to have after your morning workout to replenish your energy stores and accelerate your body’s recovery process.

Pro Tip: If you want to make your pancakes extra healthy and add an additional source of protein, try topping your pancakes with a scoop of Greek yoghurt and crumbling a RELOAD bar on top!
