{dark chocolate protein pancakes}

Event though I love my weekday morning gym sessions, weekends are made for the great outdoors. There’s nothing I enjoy more than waking up early on a Saturday and going for a crisp jog to clear my body and mind from the stresses of the week. A major dilemma arises when I jog back to my house, energized, hungry, and craving a weekend pancake breakfast! IMG_3328

Do I compromise and gobble down a stack of heavy pancakes (I did earn it, after all…) or do I opt for a far less satisfying smoothie and call it a day? Neither! I make healthier, protein pancakes that taste delicious and offer my fatigued muscles much needed nourishment!
