Blueberry Protein Pancakes Recipe: A Quick Gluten-free Breakfast

Our bodies need protein to work right and stay healthy. Protein is found in our organs, muscles, bones, tissues, skin and hair. Protein plays a crucial part in our energy levels, helps us fight infection and keeps our cells healthy and reproducing. If you want to add more protein to your diet, you can think beyond chicken breast or other meats. You can add protein to your diet with this easy blueberry protein pancake recipe.

These gluten-free fluffy pancakes are made with almond flour instead of regular white flour, along with protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, eggs, milk, vanilla and blueberries. The simple pancake batter is cooked in a skillet or on a griddle for a few minutes until golden and cooked through.

You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe, but we think fresh is always best. Serve these protein pancakes with maple syrup, yogurt or your favorite pancake topping.
