Lemon Chia Cake Batter Protein Pancakes

I’ve been tracking all of my calories lately. Tracking my macro nutrients and calories is a great way to make sure none of that unwanted holiday weight appears and helps make sure you’re eating enough to burn fat and add muscle… or at least it helps me think all that happens.

Either way, tracking my food intake helps keep me accountable for what I am eating. Just one handful of chocolate chips can turn into three if I’m not careful and just one spoonful of almond butter definitely becomes four heaping spoonfuls. It’s bad. But oh-so-good.

Since I track my food intake everyday I can see when I need to get more protein or more carbs and can allow some flexibility when I really want a handful of chocolate (or a cookie!).

When I did a quick search for protein pancakes to make the other day, and saw the beautiful work of Muy Delish and her Lemon Chia Seed Protein Pancakes, well, I just had to make them. 

These pancakes fit my macros perfectly for a morning breakfast and definitely hit the spot in the craving department.

Once you bite into these and you’ll be hooked, just like me!

I will definitely have to give those a whirl at some point! Too bad I didn’t read the post before I made banana chocolate chip pancakes for lunch.

Because yes, I have to measure out my chocolate chips and my nut butter. And even then it tends to be rounded tablespoons . . .
