pic for protein post story 3

When I first developed the Protein Powered pancakes recipe, I thought I was looking for a solution for other people.

I had pretty much zero desire to eat pancakes, because my experience with them, was that 40 minutes later I was tired and starving again.

9 Ways Our Grass Fed Protein Pancake is Different:
