Healthy Christmas Protein Pancakes Recipe

I love Christmas!

It’s my favorite holiday of the year!

Especially when it comes to Christmas treats – I just love them all!

The funny thing is that, when I think about it better, this Christmas eat fest that’s happening every time holiday’s are about to come, freaks me out a little bit.

Starting from pies, cookies, fudges, puddings, cakes, sweets and many many different kinds of peppermint inspired desserts and treats, Christmas is well known as the sugary load of the year.

And what if you want to stay healthy during the holidays?!

Well that’s one mission impossible, right?

And that’s where I turn the mixer on!

 

Since I run a health and fitness blog myself, called Fit Girl’s Diary, I couldn’t help myself but try to fight for a healthier Christmas this year.

I decided to take my chance and make a festive inspired dessert that tastes, looks and feels like Christmas!

And it turned out great!

It tastes so delicious and creamy and at the same time is a real nutrition bomb!

It is:

  • sugar free
  • nut free
  • gluten free
  • dairy free

This amazing Christmas dessert, wrapped as a Christmas present is both vegetarian and Paleo – it’s not vegan dough, because it contains eggs and a tablespoon of honey.

It’s nutrition targets are amazing – contains 41 grams of protein, a lot of fibers and loads of iron, by having 509 Calorie overall.

Enough talking, let’s head on to the recipe!
