Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes

Saturday was the day of running around like a crazy person.

I slept in by accident, tripped over my gym bag, stubbing my toe in the process, lost my toothbrush (how does that even happen?) and spilled a carton of almond milk on the carpet.

By the time I got to the gym at 11am I’d realized that all I’d had to eat that morning was a fruit + almond milk smoothie at 8am. #fail

I rocked the elliptical for 45 minutes, ran for 20 minutes, then headed to the weight room for my 45 minute strength set. 25 minutes in I totally fell apart.

My body seized up. I had no energy left in me.

Done, empty, kaput. Amazing what breakfast can do to our performance!

I headed for home with one thing on my mind…


If you know me, then you know I suck at making pancakes. They either come out burnt, undercooked, or dry, and always come out in dinosaur-like shapes.

I wish I was kidding.

But I was a lady on a mission. A sugar-reduced, protein packed, carb-full mission.

20 minutes later I was basking in the glory of perfectly cooked protein pancakes. The clouds parted, angels sang, it was glorious.

Mission accomplished.
