High protein peanut butter pancakes - 2 smart points each

Sometimes you just want some carbs for breakfast? Right?

These pancakes satisfy the carb cravings while sneaking in protein. They are Weight Watchers friendly and the whole recipe is only 8 points on WW Freestyle. Even if you eat them all, that's not too bad!

To keep the points low, I cook them in my cast iron skillet. I give a quick spray of cooking spray beginning and don't need to use any additional oil.

They get the peanut butter flavor from using powdered peanut butter, I like PBFit. When it's mixed it tastes very similar to peanut butter in my opinion. I also mix it up to have with celery as a low-fat snack. Even my dog loves it! The PBFit  also adds extra protein to these pancakes.

The recipe makes 4 medium-sized pancakes, using 1/3 cup batter for each. I split the recipe with my husband and we have two. I top mine with a low fat berry cream and he puts as much butter and syrup on his as he likes. His are a little less WW friendly :)

1/2 cup Krusteaz Protein Butermilk pancake mix
4 Tbsp of PBFit powdered peanut butter
1 egg
2/3 cup of water
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
Cooking spray

Turn on oven to medium-high temperature and heat up your cast iron skillet. When the pan is heated, turn the heat down to medium. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together all ingredients.

Spray skillet with cooking spray. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into the middle of the heated skillet. After the top of the pancake begins to look cooked (approximately 2-3 minutes) using a large spatula, flip the pancake over to continue cooking (approximately 2 additional minutes).  Repeat until the batter is used.

Makes 4 pancakes. Each pancake is 2 points on WW freestyle and it's 8 points for the whole recipe.

Top as desired, I suggest this one point berry cream topping!
