Christmas is my favorite time of the year! Not just because the Christmas trees and Santa, but because of the fact that all the family gathers on Christmas, to share love and food. Well, when it comes to the holiday food, I have to say, if you’re trying to stay healthy for the holidays, you’re in a big trouble.
Starting from pies, cakes, puddings, tarts, cookies, candy, sweets and many many different kinds of desserts, Christmas is loaded with unhealthy carbs.
Because of that, I decided to step up this year, and try to make a healthier holiday treat. One that looks, feels and tastes like Christmas, but is still healthy, clean and fitness friendly. And that’s how I made my Christmas protein pancakes.
Not only that my pancakes turned out to be delicious and creamy as heaven, they ended up having awesome nutrition targets. Starting from the fact that they are diabetics, heart and health friendly, they also are Paleo and vegetarian. Nut free, gluten free and sugar-free, these yummy Christmas delights are the best! They contain only 254 calories per serving, and that is pretty amazing, considering the fact that 7 American pancakes have twice the calories per serving.
In other words, they are a real nutrition bomb, packed as a present under your Christmas tree.
Let the holidays begin!
