These THICC pancakes are a meal, perfect topped generously with my Sugar-Free Blueberry Compote.Enjoy on their own or serve with a couple of slices of bacon for the best start to your day. Just a fair warning: these pancakes are seriously filling and loaded with protein with about 14g of protein per pancake! You’ll be satiated for hours.

Variations of these PB+J protein pancakes
Easy alternative ingredient options:
- I used Paleo Pro Chocolate Protein Powder, but you can use any complete amino acid profile protein powder (whey protein or beef protein isolate based, vanilla or chocolate flavored)
- Can’t do Peanut Butter? Try cashew butter, almond butter, or sunflower seed butter.
- Don’t have Birch Bender’s Paleo Pancake Mix on hand? Just use 1/4 cup almond meal or gluten free flour + 1/4 tsp baking powder.
- For this recipe, I like 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, but you can use any milk of choice.
Pile high and top with my easy 2-ingredient Sugar-Free Blueberry Compote … breakfast is served!
