Whole Wheat Protein Pancakes

Whole-Wheat-Protein-Pancakes_sefc6gMy kids love pancakes! I try to make them at least once a week…always making extra to save for busy mornings. These yummy whole wheat protein pancakes are made with cottage cheese and packed with protein. So if I have one (or two) I don’t feel guilty. A satisfying way to start your day!
