Pancakes always feel like a weekend treat, but this recipe from my Veggie Glow Guide is so simple to whip up you could quite easily enjoy them for a weekday breakfast too. They’re light and fluffy but also pack a protein punch thanks to the serving of protein powder added to the mixture. Serve with a handful of mixed berries for an antioxidant boost, great for protecting your cells against free radicals! They’re also a good source of fiber and vitamin C too.
