Whether you’re following a vegan diet or not| these pancakes are a must. You won’t be able to resist this fluffy and sweetly spiced veganized buttermilk stack ¡ª just one pancake is 77 calories and offers four grams of protein. These are also sweet enough on their own so you can skip the 200 calories of maple syrup and top with a few berries instead ¡ª it’s about 30 calories for half a cup.
Aside from being a healthier| low-cal version than regular buttermilk pancakes| the gingerbread flavor beats any traditional flapjack. These are also made with a vegan egg that’s made with flax meal and water ¡ª so you can skip the cholesterol and get a little extra fiber. That coupled with the added protein powder is the perfect combination for weight loss. They taste amazing hot off the griddle but also refrigerate well if you want to save a few for tomorrow’s breakfast.
