Life Changing Protein Pancakes

I love these pancakes. I eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They are high protein, high fiber and low carb. There are a lot of "protein" pancakes floating around on the internet and you can even buy pre-made mix these days at health food stores. Save yourself the money. Here is my go to pancake recipe:
