We bought some of the infamous Cinnamon Swirl by @cellucor and of course it was so good! As soon as you open the container, the smell of Cinnabon fills the room. Naturally, I decided to make pancakes with it and they were so so yummy, I loved the extra cinnamon taste! Added some flax for an extra nutritional boost and topped it with a protein cinnamon swirl glaze. They turned out perfectly! Off to the gym soon to use these as fuel to lift those weights!

Where have these been all my life!?😳These were so good oh my. Seriously your life will not be complete until you try these. TO. DIE. FOR. Super moist, cheesecakey, protein pancake with a strawberry chia jam on the inside. I added more chia jam on top when I ate them and no other topping was needed. Thought about making a protein fluff, but after tasting it with just the jam, decided it wasn’t necessary 😋 Now go make these and tell me what you think. Am I right or am I right?!

Protein pancakes with an apple-date combo and spiced with a cinnamon-molasses greek yogurt drizzle…HEAVEN! These were thick and fluffy and sweet and yummy and I could go on forever. I used roasted almond flour in the batter and it added a smokey undertone that complimented the sweetness of the apples and dates perfectly 👌 Try these and let me know what you think.

**To make homemade oat and almond flour-blend ingredients in coffee grinder. For this recipe I used old fashioned oats and dry roasted almonds.
**Trick for almond flour-to ensure all almonds are ground before it turns into almond butter (it will if you grind it too long) shake the coffee grinder while it is grinding. You will get an even blend this way and not have almond chunks!

I had about a half of a can of pumpkin left over from my bites yesterday, so I decided to make pumpkin pancakes for breakfast. I haven’t made protein pancakes in a while so I figured I’d give this flavor a shot. These pancakes were so delicious and so filling…they definitely hit the spot! The inside of the pancakes had the texture of warm pumpkin pie 😱 I also made a maple greek yogurt sauce to drizzle over the top. The added sweetness was perfect with the pancakes and the crunch from the toasted pecans and pumpkin seeds was the perfect finishing touch!
