High Protein Coconut Flour Pancakes
, ,

Looking for a nutritious start to your morning without giving up those sweet tasting breakfast choices? This delicious high protein coconut flour recipe is the perfect substitute for that high carb, blood sugar spiking options normally consumed at pancakes houses.

It still has the same great taste so there is no sacrifice there. But, there is an extra boost in protein from collagen protein which is great for boosting your metabolism and adding lean muscle mass. It also contains glycine which helps to slow down the effects of aging.

By replacing coconut flour with typical pancake mixes, you are lowering the carb count with a more nutritious fiber source and low glycemic food source. For diabetics, this means it does not spike blood sugar levels.

A homemade blueberry syrup is made using BochaSweet. It provides the final finishing touch to this substantial breakfast!
