Strawberry Protein Pancakes ~ Low-Carb, Gluten-Free

I love weekends in the summer.  I try to squeeze in an early run on Saturday or Sunday and then relax in the sunshine for the rest of the day.  I’ve never really been an early morning exercise person (I prefer going after work) but the weekends are different.  There is something about starting your day with a workout that sets the tone for the day ahead. For me, I find it best to wake up and do my workout fasted, then it’s time to refuel! These strawberry protein pancakes really hit the spot.

Strawberries are in season where we live and are so amazing in pancakes, but they can easily be swapped out for your favourite berry.  To add extra strawberry flavour, I used my fave protein powder, Nuzest Clean Lean Protein.  It adds strawberry flavour without all the added sugar and junk.  These pancakes are also low-carb, low-sugar and gluten-free.

I hope you add these to your weekend breakfast menu!
