Protein Packed Cinnamon Rum Raisin Pancakes
I was looking for an easy way to up my pancake game this week and I found it. While these sound like they might be super indulgent, they actually are not. Let me explain. Just start with your favorite pancake mix . I like Kodiak cakes. Then add in a scoop of your go to vanilla or unflavored protein powder. I also use milk instead of water and add an egg for extra protein.
To make these pancakes even more tasty, I added a splash of rum extract. You could also use actual rum if you’d like. Hey it’s your breakfast right? A little cinnamon adds to the mix. Prepare them as you would normally cook your pancakes. Throw on some raisins and another sprinkle of cinnamon and serve with your favorite syrup.
With no added refined sugar and a nice serving of protein, these Cinnamon Rum Raisin Pancakes are perfect for any day. Additionally, with the holidays coming up, it’s nice to have some quick and easy breakfast and brunch options. They will be a crowd pleaser! Happy eating.
