Protein Pancakes for Weight Loss

Protein Pancakes for Weight Loss

Alex Brecher

A stack of pancakes is a hearty sight, and such a pleasure to dig into, until you realize the effects on your waistline. The stack can have 200-600 or more calories, plus a load of carbohydrates to go with it. You are setting yourself up for blood sugar crashes, carb cravings, and an overload of calories for the day before you even think about syrup, butter, or bacon.

There is no need to avoid pancakes if you want to lose weight, thanks to The BariatricPal Store. We have low-carb Protein Pancakes in a variety of flavors, that you can use to satisfy cravings and hit your weight loss goals.

The Bare Minimalist

A strict diet for quick weight loss has very little wiggle room, but you still need to get in your protein at each meal. BariatricPal Protein Pancakes have 90 to 120 calories per serving, plus 14 to 15 grams of protein. They are designed to keep hunger away without pushing you over your calorie limit. Make a single-serving packet in minutes with nothing but water, and lose weight eating chocolate chip, blueberry, or golden fluffy pancakes.

The Grab-n-Go Breakfast Sandwich

Are you on the go and in a rush, but still need a protein-packed breakfast to start the day right? Skip the drive-through, and take your own version of delicious satisfaction. Make two thin Protein Pancakes, and use them to sandwich your choice of any of the following:

  • Low-fat cottage or ricotta cheese.
  • Fat-free cream cheese.
  • Cooked egg whites.
  • Vegetarian breakfast sausage.
  • All-natural ham.
  • Fat-free cheddar cheese.

The Sunday Brunch

Everyone deserves to relax now and then, and how better than at a leisurely weekend brunch? An endless stack of starchy pancakes, crispy bacon, and fried potatoes is not worth the cost to your waistline, but a satisfying brunch can be yours. Along with your favorite flavors of Protein Pancakes, you can set out high-protein, low-calorie, or nutritious items such as the following:

  • Sugar-free syrup.
  • Protein Omelets or hard-boiled eggs.
  • Cauliflower “hash browns” with onion and parmesan cheese.
  • Blueberries, peaches, cantaloupe or other fruit.
  • Shrimp cocktail.

The “Breakfast for Dinner”

Get creative with Low-Carb Baking Mix, and turn your pancakes into savory, but still guilt-free, delights. Add grated zucchini and onion for a vegetable-packed side dish with a protein punch, or mix in cooked, diced chicken breast and vegetables to use up last night’s leftovers. For a vegetarian dinner, top a thin, cooked pancake with shredded cheddar cheese, black beans, and salsa, or feta cheese, thyme, and spinach.
