Unlike Ricky Bobby’s kids, however, these pancakes are NOT all jacked up on Mountain Dew, but instead the protein power of quinoa flour and wheyIMG_8886 (1024x683)

Flapjacked Protein Pancakes are great way to incorporate a high fiber, all-natural  breakfast into your day.IMG_9380 (1024x683)

And, as we should all know by now, getting something into your stomach first thing in the morning [aside from just coffee ;) ] is one of the simplest–and most beneficial–habits you can get into for improving your overall health and daily energy level.IMG_9585 (1024x683)

While I may have had some difficulty successfully cooking these pancakes initially…IMG_8857 (1024x683)

the only thing you need to add is water (or other liquid of your choice). It’s really as simple as stirring and heating up a pan.*

*I recommend cast iron.IMG_9555 (1024x683)

The serving size is generous, and the protein and fiber do keep you full through a day of work…or a day of workouts.web_BM_nutrition_1024x1024

I thought I’d like the freedom of flavor additions with the basic Buttermilk best, but I have to say, the flavors of the Cinnamon Apple and Banana Hazelnut are incredible, and I almost prefer them.IMG_8848 (1024x683)

(The Buttermilk has a definite quinoa undertone, which is not necessarily a bad thing, unless you are trying to convince a stalwart Bisquick believer to change his ways.)IMG_9571 (1024x683)

I’ve enjoyed experimenting with toppings–and trying to actually cook the darn things correctly-–and I must say that I’ve learned it doesn’t matter what the finished product looks like, they still taste great regardless. :) IMG_9380 (1024x683)

(If you should have leftovers, the Buttermilk pancakes also make great alternatives to croutons or bread for dipping into soups, sauces, or spreads…)IMG_8851 (1024x683)

Lucky for ME, their marketing manager happens to be a good blend of mine (and she’s doing a flippin’ amazing job of promoting the product through social media channels)—flapjacked_socialmedia

—who deemed me worthy of sampling Flapjacked Protein Pancakes for free.IMG_9360 (1024x683)

I have to say I agree with you on the flavors…and just fyi, the apple cinnamon went PERFECTLY with some fig jam (and chicken…yup, I went there)! ;)

PS, you’re a genius for the idea of the croutons!
