Better-Than-Confetti-Cake Pancakes

Seriously- this was the BEST protein pancake EVER!! No Joke, I had CAKE for breakfast. You know Pillsbury's Confetti Cake? Yea- this was better (Quadruple bonus for being WAY healthier!). Before I get into this- I have to thank Lauren for the inspiration. These pancakes were moist, fluffy, thick, beautiful, birthday-party-in-your-mouth-amazingness. I think the secret here was the sugar-free pudding powder. I'm going to experiment more with different flavors, powders, and measures just for fun....But honestly, I don't think I need to mess with this. If you haven't tried a protein pancake yet, THIS is the one to try.
