RECIPE: Blueberry + Strawberry Pancakes- gluten free, diary free, high protein

Yep- I did it! I ate pancakes TWICE in one day! First, as a post workout then as a dessert. How do I feel? so sickkkkkkkk

This is how it went down (in disjointed short sequence): I went out for dinner to Lazy Moes with family and friends and was asked if I wanted to try some banana pancakes with walnuts and maple syrup. “Uhhhhhh, I’m not sure. I just ate like 200g of grilled fish and salad…” “C’mon at least try it..” “Okay. Fine. But tomorrow I know I’m going to feel it..” so I dug in and ended up eating ¼ of the EXTREMELY LARGE pancake (+ icecream 🙈)… So to say, I felt it this morning.

Yo, imagine eating that whole thing!.. Yikes!

Did I enjoy it? Hell yeah!.. Do I feel guilty? Hell no!.. Am I going to run it off? No… because I can’t run… But will I squat it off? Probably..

All in all it was a pretty good pancake and I enjoyed it, even though it’s not something I would usually eat… Well from a restaurant anyway. But here IS something I would eat:
