From time to time comes a recipe that becomes a staple food. These sweet potato waffles did it pretty well. People have not had breakfast since their discovery. This baked pancake promises to be another game changer.
Cake in a pan
In some cultures they are called "hotcakes". In other "pancake cakes". Whatever name you give them, there's no denying their fluffy pancake structure, their guilt-free, great taste, and their nutritional profile. Eat for breakfast or dessert or cut into portions in snack size.
Many protein powder recipes can be rubbery and dry, but not these. You get a big, fluffy pancake that serves one or two hungry hardgainers. The whole pancake contains whopping 53 grams of protein from a mixture of whey isolate, Mizellenkasein and eggs. This means a complete amino acid profile with different release levels.
You also have a few servings of fruit and over a third of your daily fiber intake in one session. With this protein pancake you stay full and your body runs like clockwork.

Bonus: Why Pumpkin Seeds?
The pumpkin seeds are a nice touch, especially if you are a little thinner. They contain beta-sitosterol, which inhibits the 5-alpha reductase enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Several randomized controlled trials in rats and humans have shown that pumpkin seed oil has antiandrogenic effects and helps with male pattern baldness. For a healthy hormonal profile, pumpkin seeds are a great option.
