Recipe: Protein Packed Almond Pancakes


If you loved my recent Low-carb Cinna-Coconut Pancakes, you are going to love these pancakes! Almonds are used in a variety of our Quest Protein Bars and for good reason. Almonds provide protein and fiber, contain the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 and are rich in vitamin E. The high fat amounts in almonds are monosaturated fats, which is great for the heart. With all the great benefits of almonds I decided why not make a pancake! These pancakes are packed with protein, good fats, and low in carb.

½ cup water + 2 tablespoons
1 tsp cinnamon
3 packets stevia
