2-Ingredient Pancakes

These pancakes are perfect for a low-carb breakfast! Not only are they low-carb, they also provide a great source of protein, which will help keep you full through out the morning. This breakfast is also a great choice for a post-workout meal. Try adding ground flaxseed to the batter for extra fiber!
