Happy Valentines Day, fit fam!
Last week, you guys asked me to share my favourite, drool-worthy Mixed Berry Protein Pancake recipes with you. So, I figured that a day as sweet as Valentine’s Day deserved an even sweeter breakfast companion.
HOWEVER, I will warn you… whether you’re celebrating today with your one true love or not, I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll have a better time with these Mixed Berry Protein Pancakes. (So, cancel your plans immediately - because they’re 100% not as good as digging into these bad boys.)
1. they're 21 (sexy) grams of protein per serving
2. they're melt-in-your-mouth delicious
3. they use whipped cream & berries in a sexier way than your Valentine ever could
4. they don't talk back
5. just look at how sexy they are
6. they're only 400-ish calories per serving (toppings included!)
7. did I mention how sexy they are!?
And, since I’m all about loving YOURSELF first - this Valentine’s Day, instead of buying chocolates and flowers for your loved ones, treat YOURSELF to these pancakes instead. You’ll be sooooo glad you did, trust me.
