Berry Burst Morning Flapjack

When athlete Jen Jewell wakes up in the morning, she always looks forward to making—and eating!—her very own berry-infused protein pancakes.

"I love using my beloved Cor-Fetti with this one because, when you add in the fruit, it gives off a cake-like quality," says Jen. If you have a sweet tooth to tame, this is the recipe for you.

Because these pancakes are higher in carbohydrates, they are perfect for pre- or even post-morning workouts. Even if you're not going to be working out, simply finding the time to prepare and enjoy these can help you start your day right!

Peanut Butter and Raisin Oatmeal

Here's another amazing twist on the ol' oats breakfast staple. Peanut butter and raisins come together to throw an amazing party in your mouth.

Strength athlete Karina Baymiller's favorite breakfast recipe is exactly what your peanut-butter-loving self craves first thing in the morning (or pretty much any time of day). You just may not know it yet.

Ingredients
Directions
  1. Prepare oats with milk or water in the microwave or on the stove—whichever you prefer.
  2. Stir in egg whites and cook until the oats have become thick and creamy. This will usually take around 1-2 minutes longer.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before stirring in the whey protein and cinnamon raisin peanut butter. Top with half a sliced banana.
Note

If you don't have premade cinnamon raisin peanut butter, simply mix together peanut butter, raisins, cinnamon, and a sweetener of your choice.
