Cinnamon Appple Protein Pancakes

For the last few weeks I’ve been working out with Emmitt at Faith Fitness Studio. Emmett pushes me harder than I’ve ever been pushed. I was actually fighting back tears one workout. Fortunately, I had so much sweat dripping down my face, I don’t think he could tell.

Apple Protein Pancakes

I’ve been trying to add more protein to my daily food intake since I’ve been putting my muscles to the test. Because there’s only so much grilled chicken I can eat, I find using whey protein powder is an easy way to get the extra protein in. Usually I just make a shake with the protein powder, but sometimes I add it to muffins or pancakes.

This Cinnamon Apple Protein Pancake recipe not only is loaded with protein, but it has a lot of great flavors going on too. Sweet-tartness from the apples and just the right amount of spice. The ingredient list is pretty long, but you just dump everything in a bowl and stir, so it comes together very quickly.
