Vanilla Protein Pancakes with Banana, Chocolate and Caramel

Morning Guys! Hope you all had an incredible weekend. Friday night I went out with one of my friends from sixth form for a few rounds of cocktails and a good old catchup. Then Saturday morning I went to the gym, lounged around and then me and my Mum went to TKmaxx so I could get my friends some bits for their birthdays and I also picked up some bits for myself like granola, almond milk and a new travel overnight bag as I broke mine. Then I got some work done before tea and then chilled and watched Saturday night TV with my Mum. Monday I got up again and went to the gym, I normally take weekends off but feeling a little stressed at the moment so going to the gym and starting my day by moving, really calms my nerves. Then after that I spent all day working, packing up big orders and catching up on admin. Sunday I made and packaged all the bars for my new stockist and then my boyfriend came round. Tuesday morning we went to the gym together, he went off to uni and cracked on with packing boxes for PorterBrook deli in sheffield and making sure I’ve got all my online orders sorted.

So today I’m sharing my pancake day morning pancakes. These are the nicest pancakes I’ve ever made and eaten. So you just have to give them a try! Vanilla protein pancakes (perfect post workout) topped with all the best things. Enjoy x
