Recipe Notes

You can easily double or triple the recipe to serve a larger crowd. This batter packs a powerful 35 grams of total protein, which is more than 4 grams of protein per pancake! Top with peanut butter & serve with a glass of cold Hiland Dairy milk for even more protein. My kids love these and I know they are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast and no added sugar.
