Apple Cinnamon Protein Pancakes

Something about pancakes just screams Sunday morning breakfast in your pajamas am I right? Or if your 3 maybe you think pancakes are the perfect breakfast EVERYDAY 😆


Why is that? Cause when we think pancakes we think light, fluffy, carb filled and drizzled in sugar... not quite the meal that keeps those goals on track. Not these, they got the taste and nutrition on your side!

Another bonus these pancakes are topped with warm, cinnamon-spiced apple slices, you won’t feel the need to drown your pancakes in syrup. Plus you can feel good about getting some fruit in to start the day.
