Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes

Who doesn't love a classic PB and J?! I could have one for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Never gets old. So here's my pancake version for a fun, delicious, and healthy breakfast!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein

Ingredients for Pancakes:

2 tablespoons almond flour 
2 tablespoons peanut flour
2 tablespoons Cellucor's Peanut Butter Marshmallow Whey Protein (or any)
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons liquid egg whites
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any)
1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

For the "Jelly":

1/4 cup berries of choice


1. Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Coat with cooking spray.
2. Place all pancake ingredients in a food processor or blender (I use a Ninja food processor) until combined.
3. Add batter by the spoonful to the pan. Cook until edges set and bubbles start to form. Flip. Cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side.
4. To make the jelly, place your berries in a small bowl. If you use strawberries, slice them into 3-4 pieces. Heat in the microwave about 20-25 seconds or until they begin to soften.
5. Layer pancakes with your homemade jelly and peanut butter of choice!
