Protein Pancakes

Joy Bauer's Because research shows that starting your day with a high-protein breakfast can aid weight loss and boost energy, these "Joy Food" pancakes will leave you feeling worlds better than traditional starchy flapjacks. Whip up a batch and dig in. Technique tip: For a moister pancake, cover the skillet with a lid while the pancake is cooking. Swap option: Nuke frozen fruit in the microwave, then pour the fruit and all the natural juices over the finished pancake as I've done in this picture. Tastes amazing . . . and no added sugar.
