My love of pancakes continues... they are my go to post workout meal. Protein pancakes make a great post workout because you get a nice rush of carbs and easy to digest proteins. Plus, they feel very rewarding.

This recipe utilizes Kodiak Cakes Protein Pancake mix. If you haven't tried their products, pick some up. *Note, they are not vegan though. If you are completely plant based, an easy hack is to take plant based pancake mix and add a little plant based protein powder to it.
