Protein-packed pancakes with oats and blueberries to give you lasting energy throughout the morning. Great post-workout!
It’s almost noon and I’m not starving. As a nursing mama who exercises regularly, my life pretty much revolves around my next meal. Today’s recipe is my latest attempt at creating a protein-packed breakfast that gets my metabolism running but doesn’t leave me empty in a matter of hours. We are now 3 hours and counting so I would say, mission accomplished!
Even more thrilling? My husband said these pancakes were the best part of his weekend.
