Pancakes are quite possibly the greatest way to start your day.

I’ve been crushing on protein pancakes for the past 5 years and have made them in tons of flavors ~ blueberry, pumpkin, funfetti, cinnamon roll, berries & cream, bananas foster, bacon, and carrot cake. I pretty much eat them every morning.
