Peanut Butter & Blueberry High Protein Pancakes

Peanut Butter & Blueberry High Protein Pancakes

These pancakes are a delicious way to get more protein into your diet if you are finding it hard to reach your recommended daily protein intake. This will vary depending on training goals and of course your body type/size.

 

Proteins are known as ‘the building blocks’ it’s what you need to consume to repair and build muscle after exercise. When you exercise you create microscopic tears in the muscle fibres, by consuming a high protein meal after exercising your body can deliver amino acids (small proteins) to the muscle and assist in its repair, recovery and rebuild.
