I made some apple blueberry protein pancakes this morning for breakfast! Recipe by Protein Pow (with a few small changes)

Blend ½ cup of egg whites, 2 small cored apples, ½ cup of almond flour, and ¼ cup of whey protein powder. Add around 20 blueberries to the blended mixture and pan-fry on LOW medium heat otherwise these babies will buuurn.

I think I really like pancakes… Mmmmm. Also my first time using coconut oil to pan fry! Loved it!
