These fluffy, nutrient dense, protein-packed, and gluten free pancakes have been a regular go-to meal for me lately. You see, I haven't had a ton of time to grocery shop and cook as I've been putting the finishing touches on the Wealthy Metabolism eCourse that launched this past month. These gluten free pancakes satisfyingly fulfill my carbohydrate cravings, and they also contain enough protein to keep my mood and energy levels stable without the dreaded sugar crash that can happen with traditional pancakes.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
