Are protein powder pancakes healthy?

Traditional buttermilk pancakes are made from milk, wheat flour (containing gluten) and large quantities of refined sugars, which makes them a decidedly unhealthy option, particularly for those with a gluten allergy or watching their weight.

Fortunately, other types of pancakes, such as protein powder pancakes, make a surprisingly sensible choice. That’s because protein powder pancakes are largely made from protein powder and are free from fattening dairy products, gluten and refined sugars. Protein is essential for optimal health; the amino acids in protein are responsible for the metabolic processes within your body and play a role in the manufacture of tissue, hormones, enzymes, antibodies, carrier proteins and other important protein structures. You can read more about the benefits of protein in, ‘What is the best protein powder for women?'. Protein-rich foods (including protein powder pancakes) are also low in carbohydrates, which means that they can help you to maintain stable blood sugar levels and provide a feeling of satiety - particularly useful when you’re trying to lose weight, as you’re far less likely to indulge in sugary snacks between meals.
