Blueberry Protein Pancakes

Ever find yourself heading to the vending machine mid-morning even though you had breakfast? While its tasty and convenient to reach for a bowl of cereal or slice of toast in the mornings, these high-carb breakfasts lead to elevated blood sugar levels which then drop quickly, leaving you tired and hungry soon after. A breakfast high in protein, such as these delicious pancakes, actually stabilizes blood sugar and prevents hunger for a number of hours. Yippee!
