As a kid, I really loved pancakes. But I haven't had them in my meal plans in years because traditional pancakes are packed with ingredients that aren't optimal to support my training. Well, after some research and a little trial and error, I'm excited to share the following recipe with you. These pancakes contain slow-digesting carbs, plenty of fiber, and a hefty dose of protein, making them diet-friendly and a better option for those looking to put this childhood favorite back in the regimen.
