5 Post-Workout Protein Pancakes To Try This WeekendBy Durlan Vega on
Happy Friday babe! Whatcha up to this weekend? I'm looking forward to a chill weekend with some reading, yoga and Studio Tone It Up workouts, and then I'm going to make my fave post-workout meal: protein pancakes! You girls know how much I love my pancakes. These are a Tone It Up girl staple! Kat actually made them for me after one of our first nights out together years ago, and they have been one of my go-to recipes ever since. Protein pancakes are amazing because they're so easy — you can literally whip them up in 10 minutes. And since you replace flour with clean, plant-based, non-GMO, gluten-free Tone It Up Protein, these pancakes actually help you recover and boost your metabolism after your workout. There are so many variations on protein pancakes too. Just start with the classic recipe and you can switch it up with different protein flavors and toppings. Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite easy and delicious pancakes recipes. These are all super simple, plant-based, gluten-free, and perfect for a weekend brunch. Enjoy & have a fab weekend! xxo, Karena
