Flax seed 2: Protein Pancakes

Blessed are those who drink the coffee beverage and eat the manna that is....Peanut butter chocolate protein pancakes!

These are super tasty and easy and pretty and healthy!

If you need a little switch-a-roony in your morning routine, I hope you try this!

2 scoops of your favorite protein powder (we use About Time)
1 tsp. cinnamon (Did you know cinnamon can extend the effects of caffeine? It's true!)
1tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup of Ideal sweetener
1/4 cup flax seed meal
2-3 TBLs of oil
1 egg lightly beaten
3/4 - 1 cup milk
1/4 cup Peanut Butter

Put all of your dry ingredients together and whisk until all the lumps are gone. Next add your oil and egg and stir with a fork until mixed in. Next add your milk a little bit at a time until the mixture resembles a cake batter. You should have some milk left over. Next add the PB. Mix until it is thoroughly mixed into the batter! Now add enough milk to thin the batter to pancake batter consistency. If you hold up a medium ribbon drizzle should stream down.
Heat a pan to medium heat for about 3-5 minutes. Use the 1/8 cup measure to pour the batter. Pour 1/2 of the measure for the perfect little cake!

Yay, more healthy options!

If you're not sure you're ready for a completely all healthy meal, then add some bacon. Yup I added some bacon for my sweet husband! He worked a double yesterday and totally deserved some bacon! 
 and of course some coffee!
