Berry Protein Pancake Bites


Don’t put away your muffin tin just yet. These are perfect for brunch with the kids or family members.  Who doesn’t love pancakes and berries?  These make them even easier by whipping them up, throwing them in a pan, and let the oven take care of the rest.  This recipe also uses buttermilk protein pancake mix, so you can justify the splurge knowing you are getting a boost of protein from these.  Totally easy to make and even easier to eat, top your finished creations with syrup, whipped cream, or just east them all on their own.

French Toast Bake

This one just sounds amazing in the title.  This is a French toast casserole that you throw everything into a pan and set it and forget it.  Except you won’t forget it, because you’ll be drooling over the oven waiting for it to finish.  Sourdough bread covered in egg mixture and topped with cinnamon sugar makes this ooey gooey breakfast one you will crave over and over again.
