Power Up Your Pancakes

Give your flapjacks a protein boost using these five delicious recipes.

I love a good breakfast, regardless of what time of day it is – morning, afternoon or evening (the latter two especially because I've been following an intermittent fasting plan lately).

The rest of the JYM Army has discovered this, too. And to be honest, I'm not that creative when it comes to pancake recipes. But one JYM Army member is – Justin Kamb. I recently asked Justin to share some of his favorite pancake recipes with the rest of the JYM Army, and he came through with four delicious, protein-packed meals.
