There's nothing better for breakfast than a tall stack of pancakes. While you're eating them, you're in heaven. Right after you eat, you probably feel full and satisfied. But, just a few hours later, you're starving. This is most likely because your meal lacks protein, the most filling macronutrient. That won't happen with these protein pancakes. This recipe will satisfy your pancake craving and keep you full until lunchtime.

Note: Different protein powders make react differently. The protein I used is a whey and casein blend, which works best for baking. Whey protein can be used, but may come out slightly dry.
