Ugh these pancakes. I’m swooning just thinking about them. Last week when it snowed (for what feels like the billionth time), I was stuck working from home for the day.. and what else can you do besides cook when you’re stuck inside? (You could watch Netflix, sleep, read a book, etc – but heaven forbid I should sit still for more than .2 seconds)
Anyways.. It was cold, and snowy, and Ty and I were both up early regardless of the ‘snow day’, so I figured I’d make a yummy breakfast before I started working for the day (We’re both lucky enough to be able to work from home in bad weather!). I knew I wanted something warm + comforting, but was torn on what to make. As I was making my coffee, I had an idea.
If you follow us on Instagram, you know that I always add Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides to my coffee. Every single morning, my first cup of coffee gets 1 scoop, and then I take a to go cup with another scoop in that to work. (Always in my Healthy Human – love that thing!!) Collagen peptides have seriously transformed my hair/skin/nails. I’ve been using them for over a year now, and I totally see the results. My nails are SO strong, and my hair grows so quickly and is super shiny. I have super dry, dull skin and notice that it looks my fuller + absorbs the serums/lotions that I put on it much better when I consistently use the collagen in my coffee every day. While I was scooping it into my mug I thought oh.. I bet this would be perfect to give pancakes a little nutrition boost! Annnd so I dragged out the griddle and got to cookin’ in the midst of a blizzard.
You all know that I don’t like recipes that have a laundry list of ingredients. I have a pretty basic pancake recipe that I usually follow, but I decided I’d jazz it up to make it taste like one of my favorite cookies – Snickerdoodles! Snickerdoodles always remind me of Christmas and Winter, so it was perfect for breakfast on a cold, snowy morning! You can’t even tell that there are collagen peptides in here. They have no flavor, and completely dissolve into the batter – leaving you with utterly delicious, fluffy pancakes that you can feel great about indulging in!
Do you have a go to breakfast that you love? These might be my new favorite. They came out so delicious that I actually wound up eating them for breakfast and lunch that day.. no shame! If you want to kick up your breakfast nutrition levels a notch (or really any baked good/soup/smoothie recipe) you can grab a container of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides here.
