When it comes to pancakes, there isn’t too much nutritional value in them. Therefore, pancakes are usually the last thing I would think about eating for breakfast (unless I am going to Pancake Pantry. It’s my exception to the rule).
They are delicious without any additions, but you can add just about anything you would add to pancakes! My suggestions are: flax seeds, chia seeds, blueberries, blackberries or chocolate chips.
These pancakes are a great way to get a serving of fruit, protein and fiber in your breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day and these pancakes will keep you full until lunchtime.
I typically don’t eat syrup because there’s too much sugar in it. So, I top my pancakes with PB2 or more fruit.
