Who among us doesn’t love a good brunch? After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and a gorgeous brunch spread just adds a little something special to the experience. But while this meal can certainly be an indulgent, caviar-and-smoked-salmon-style soiree, it pays to have a few at-home options for a healthy, yummy, and convenient brunch. Enter, our protein powder pancake recipe.
A Versatile Ingredient
First, we want to touch on the secret sauce that is protein powder. Many of us think of it only as a post-workout blended drink. But with a little creative thinking, protein powder can be a major tool in getting your (and your family’s) nutrients in for the day.
With organic pumpkin and pea protein, prebiotics and probiotics, 110 calories, 16 grams of protein, 1 gram of sugar, and 2 grams of fat, our vegan PlantYourDay protein powder here at Hush & Hush is that perfect partner.
Consider adding it to overnight oats, chia seed puddings, muffin recipes, and even healthy desserts, like cake balls or cookies.
We wanted to offer up one more little tip: customize your protein powder pancake! Experimenting in the kitchen is fun for family members young and old, so try out adding some of your own favorites. If you love peanut butter flavors, consider tossing in a little PBfit powder. If a chocolate and raspberry combo is your jam, test it out.
We also love the idea of making seasonal adjustments for a little bit of festivity.
Top your protein powder pancake stack with a few chocolate eggs to celebrate spring. Add some peppermint syrup for the wintertime. The possibilities are endless!
Get creative, and be well … happy brunch!
