Zucchini Bread Protein Pancakes

Happy Pancake Sunday!

Ohh, I thought today would NEVER get here…I’ve been so excited to share this recipe with you guys since last week! These were actually the FIRST ‘cakes I made for my  Pancake Queen ROCKSTAR Comeback, they got bumped to the side since raspberries are more of a “summer” thing…plus, with the warm flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg, it helps me (finally) make my transition into fall.

I actually already have a zucchini bread pancake recipe from back in the day, but since it’s a little bit more on the decadent side, I thought I’d lighten them up and then, you know, stuff ’em with some protein powder…what can I say, I’m all about some superhuman pancakes! 😉
