taeste and tell: vanilla cinnamon protein pancakes recipe
Welcome to the FOOD section of my blog, also known as Taeste and Tell!
This is where you can find recipes, tips, and tricks to help you lead a healthier lifestyle! Sometimes I'll be discussing certain healthy foods/items I use to stay in shape and other times (like today) I'll be posting recipes that I thoroughly enjoy!
So today, I wanted to share with you guys one of my favorite PROTEIN PACKED breakfast recipes: Vanilla Cinnamon Protein Pancakes! Here's a picture of them (yes I just ate them for breakfast today alongside some turkey sausage links and some green grapes!)
These bad boys are DELICIOUS and even more importantly, they are HEALTHY! So if you're struggling on finding healthy breakfast recipes, look no further!! Here's the first of many of my healthy recipe posts!

Vanilla Cinnamon Protein Pancakes
Serving: 2 pancakes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
1/3 cup Whole Wheat Pancake/Waffle Mix
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1/3 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 Tsp Canola Oil
Dash of Truvia Calorie-Free Sweetener (optional)
Add Cinnamon to taste
1.) Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until even consistency (mix should be thick but still liquid)
2.) Heat a skillet on low-medium heat (spray with nonstick spray)
3.) Ladle half of the mix into the center of the skillet. Flip once bubbles are observed on the first side of the pancake.
4.) Repeat and enjoy! :)
(when eaten with 1/8 cup of Organic Maple Syrup)

The main things I love about this recipe are the low amount of fat, the high amount of protein, the mild amount of carbs, and the relatively low amount of sugar! I personally eat according to fulfilling my macronutrients (a separate post on that to come), so depending on my numbers for the day, this can be a great way to get some protein and carbs!!
I hope you enjoy! Let me know if this is something you would make! :)
