If you don’t know this yet, I am a peanut butter addict! There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t have peanut butter on everything – veggies, yogurt, crackers, fruit, you name it!
So when I discovered PB2, a peanut powder that can help provide additonal plant based protien, I thought – why not have it in PANCAKES! I mean who doesn’t love pancakes? If you don’t then we just can’t be friends. Just can’t…… kidding! But seriously, pancakes make me so happy! And when they have added protien from natural sources such as peanuts they just can’t be beat.
Pancakes tend to be associated with indulgce and something to keep to a minimum. Uh-uh! I’m here to tell you that pancakes can be a super nutritious breakfast. And if you’re like me – maybe even lunch or dinner. I mean hey, you can have breakfast for dinner if you want to! There are no rules! Well, except maybe one: Love what you eat because that is only way to sustain a healthy lifestyle. Looking forward to meals is what makes a healthy life a happy one.
These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes with a Maple Peanut Butter Drizzle fit the bill. By making them with whole grain flour they provide the additonal fiber you need to help you have regular bowel movements, keep your gut healthy, and have good blood sugar control. The plant based protein from peanuts and grains will keep you satisfied and help curb the munchies! Delicous, nutritious, FLUFFY (otherwise what’s the point?!), and satisfying. Your body and taste buds will thank you.
