Yeah, we thought so too. Our Almond Butter Protein Pancakes contain just 6 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fat, but a whopping 36 grams of protein. Whip one up any time you've got the munchies, or multiply the recipe and store enough in the fridge to last all week.

  1. Combine the whey protein and Splenda in a bowl, then add the egg whites, water, and almond butter. If your almond butter is thick, you can microwave it for a few seconds to make it easier to blend.
  2. Heat a greased skillet over medium heat. Pour batter out to form one pancake, and cook on each side for 90 seconds.
  3. Throw it in your mouth naked, or top with more almond butter.
