Recipe: Fall Protein Pancakes!

To be honest, I'm not a huge pancake person. I don't like sweet breakfasts very well, probably due to my (literally) unhealthy obsession with salt. I do love my Truetein Cinnabun protein powder though, and pancakes are super easy way of getting protein in without drinking weird shakes, haha.

I started with a basic protein pancake recipe from Tone It Up:

Unfortunately, I just did not like the pancakes from this recipe. :(

It wasn't bad, but it was waaay too sweet. I think the combination of the banana and the protein powder put it over the top for my tastes. So the next time I made pancakes, I changed up the recipe to work for me:

Ingredients: (Makes 2 medium-sized pancakes)
* 1 scoop of Trutein Cinnabun protein powder (or any kind you have on hand) 
* 1 egg 
* 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce 
* Spices, to taste

That's it, I swear! It's the easiest recipe and JUST sweet enough that you don't need any syrup at all! 
All you need to do is: 
(1) Combine the egg and applesauce   
(2) Add your spices; and 
(3) Add the protein powder 
(4) Mix everything up and procede to make delicious pancakes! 

I chose Cinnamon and Nutmeg because, heck, it's fall! It made the pancakes taste kind of like pumpkin pie, even though there was no pumpkin added - yummm!

You'd never know that they were only made with three ingredients, and I love the fact that I don't have to use syrup, as well as the fact that I'm getting a whole scoop of protein powder in when I eat these! I'd love to make these again with blueberries in the mix itself - I think it'd be dynamite!

Have you ever made protein pancakes before? Would you add fruit to these?
