Sugary & Buttery - Coconut Protein Pancakes


It’s back to school! I can honestly say – finally! I’m glad to be back in our routine, be done with summer camps, and she is seriously excited. Back to school also means back to preparing lunches and healthy easy breakfasts. My favorites are nutritious pancakes or waffles, like these kid-friendly and yummy – yet healthy, gluten-free and dairy-free – coconut protein pancakes. They are easy to prepare ahead of time for busy weekday mornings and are low-sugar and protein and fiber packed – and keep in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.

Topped with fresh Challenge Butter and served with fruit or yogurt, the recipe below yields enough for a weekend breakfast for a family with 2 kids. If your planning to freeze some for a quick weekday breakfast, just double the ingredients.
