How to perfect the “Healthy Pancake”

In my quest of a healthier and stronger body, I’ve been on a mission to make the perfect protein pancakes. The best way to perfect a recipe? Try a bunch, select your favorite, and make it over and over again — exactly what I did. These pancakes are super healthy, tasty, and filling with about 670 calories and 60g of protein. If your health goals lean more towards losing weight and less towards building muscle, simply exclude the protein powder from the recipe. That’s what’s so great about this recipe: the optional protein powder…
