Hello everyone,

Even better! Then, you have to make these healthy, protein-loaded, sugarfree and dairyfree strawberry shortcake pancakes for tomorrow's breakfast. Here comes the recipe...

1 scoop whey protein (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2. In a blender, mix all ingredients (except the strawberries) into a batter.
3. Add strawberries to the batter.
4. Cook the pancakes in a non-stick pan on medium heat, about 2 minutes each side.
5. Add desired toppings; I used: peanut butter, greek yogurt, a banana, a sprinkle of chia seeds and a drizzle of maple syrup.
