Pancakes are carb intensive at 56.5 grams per 2 large pancakes. OUCH!! These pancakes are delicious and only 20 net carbs for 2 large pancakes. Go easy on the syrup or opt for a dolop of butter and a light sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. In this version of the recipe I used nutritional yeast flakes but you can also use your favourite protein powder so grams of protein could fluctuate.
