Orange Cream Protein Pancakes

Orange Cream Protein Pancakes

By Brice Woodard, ABS Team Member

Don't you just love Orange Creamsicles? They are the picture perfect summer snack.

But that's not all. Don't forget about Orange Cream cupcakes. Orange cream anything is a great summer treat. While these taste amazing, they come loaded with added sugar and take quite a bit to fill you up.


On my quest to find a tasty and healthier alternative, I came across some orange zest in my spice cabinet and decided to give it a try. Let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. The orange zest added a nice addition to both the flavor and the color of the pancakes, but made its biggest impact in the sauce.

The sweetness of the sauce is the perfect combination to go with the wholesome goodness that comes with these pancakes. They'll fill you up and hit that sweet spot all in one swoop. Check it out.
