Kid-approved Protein Packed Pancakes

I think it’s time for another kid approved recipe! This is honestly one of my favourite recipes. I make these for the kids and they love them. When I make these pancakes I make extras so I can put them in the fridge and eat them over the next few days. They refrigerate so well!! I know I have talked about these pancakes before on my social media but I wanted to write about them here, so people can copy the recipe easily. Before I go on anymore I have to give a huge shoutout to the woman whose blog I found this on, Ambitious Kitchen. She’s got really amazing recipes and if you love baking food that’s healthy and delicious please check out her blog.

The thing I love about these pancakes is that all the ingredients go from the blender to the pan and there’s hardly any cleanup. It’s perfect for a busy Saturday morning. Let me know what you think of this recipe!
