Ok so I am still on my pancake fix! lol! When I get into something, I tend to stick with it for a while. This time I came across a recipe using Vital Proteins collagan peptides (which I add a scoop to in my tea everyday and no it does not change the taste – I actually do not taste it at all!) I have been reading up on the benefits of collagen and WOW there are so many – as we tend to lose collagen as we get older (fun, right?!) So in hopes to fight the aging process I have started to add this into my daily diet. (always check with you doctor before adding any supplements into your diet)
**Some benefits of adding collagen peptides into your daily diet are watching your hair and nails grow, skin looking healthier and glowing, eases aches and pains as collagen is a lubricant for your bones that we tend to lose as we get older. Let’s fight the aging process together!
Ok back to the pancakes now! As I said in the title these are super simple and gluten free! They do not puff up like traditional pancakes but cook fast and thin. You can add the collagen or leave it out – it will not affect the recipe but you won’t get all the added benefits as mentioned above!
You can double the batch and freeze some for a later breakfast date. Experiment with different toppings like peanut butter and banana, frozen berries heated up and drizzled over with cinnamon, honey, or traditional pure maple syrup. The possibilities are endless so get creative. I would usually add a side of scrambled eggs to it for some protein to keep me fuller longer!
