Birthday Cake Protein Pancakes For Two

Small batch fluffy, birthday cake-flavored protein pancakes! Perfectly sweet, packed with protein, and so easy to make!

This pancake recipe is perfect to whip on a weekend for you and your hunny! That, or just for you and you can save the other serving for later. Simon doesn’t like birthday cake flavored things, so that is typically what I will do! The batter tastes just like the batter of yellow cake mix and it is absolutely heavenly. The protein powder adds some sweetness and also makes it a more balanced, macro-friendly meal, so you can stay fuller for longer while starting your day with a sweet treat!
