I was naughty this week and forgot to order my protein powder, so I went a few days without any delicious shakes, protein chia seed pudding, and dare I say it...the protein pancake!! So in order to make up for lost time, this afternoon I whipped up a chocolate chip pumpkin pancake, some chia pudding AND a pumpkin protein loaf. Whoa that's a lot of cooking! I have to say though that the pancake was my favorite, it was super light and fluffy, and for some extra deliciousness I threw just a little bit of dairy and soy free butter on the top of it. It still amazes me how healthy protein packed desserts taste so amazingly naughty!! Who needs fattening flour pancakes and cookies when you can make one of these babies!
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
