I'm going to let you in on a lil' secret: I hate complicated breakfasts during the morning rush just as much as the next gal. It seems that we never have enough time in the AM, so in order to keep some semblance of sanity, breakfast needs to be easy. Enter these Protein Superfood Pancakes. (Oh, another secret: dietitians kind of hate the word "superfood," but I added it in there to remind you that you can put almost anything in these suckers - chia seeds, spinach, pumpkin, blueberries, you name it!)
The best part? Make these on the weekend or after the kids are in bed on a weeknight so you can just reheat, top and eat during the morning rush! They freeze very well too. We top ours with almond butter or Nuttzo, smashed raspberries, or sliced strawberries. Of course, a little melted Kerrygold butter would be delicious as well! Refrigerate for 3-4 days or freeze for 3 months. We usually make a big batch (triple the recipe) so we have plenty for the week!
