Do you have a love/hate relationship with pancakes? Pancakes are one of my biggest weaknesses and they are one of my favorite breakfast entrees. They were on my radar even when I was losing weight. But I also know that they are loaded with unhealthy ingredients. Raise your hand if you don’t want to give up your pancakes either.

I have great news and you don’t have to give up pancakes either. We found that with a few simple modifications you can turn those unhealthy pancakes into healthy protein pancakes that are actually good for you. Check out these 35+ drool-worthy healthy protein pancakes that will satisfy your appetite and keep you feeling full morning long.

Chocolate Chip Banana Cottage Cheese

Chocolate and bananas are the perfect combinations and you won’t be disappointed with their healthy protein pancakes. They aren’t your typical light and fluffy pancake. Instead, these are dense and chewy pancakes. If you want a bit healthier version, you can omit the chocolate chips and forgo adding butter and syrup too. Check out the full recipe here.

Oatmeal Blueberry Yogurt

Monique over at Ambitious Kitchen loves cottage cheese pancakes. However, when she read the nutrition label a bit closer she discovered that the sodium content was too high. So she did a bit of experimenting with her recipe and substituted yogurt in lieu of cottage cheese.

Jacinda from Northern Nester whipped up a batch of the cinnamon flapjacks and topped them with a fresh fruit compote. She decided to try adding a bit of collagen to her recipe and she was pleased with the results. Both she and her husband was only able to eat one pancake because they were too full to eat any more. These pancakes are filled with tons of protein from the egg whites, greek yogurt, and collagen. Find the recipe here.

Blackberry Ricotta

When I found this recipe on Pinterest, my mouth immediately started to water. These hotcakes are light in texture and packed full of delicious blackberries. Andrea over at Andrea’s Protein Cakery, we delighted when she discovered that they were enough to keep her feeling full, even after a working out her legs the previous day.

Cookies and Cream

Oreo cookies are one of my favorite cookies and it is always just so hard to eat 1 serving. I try not to buy them when I am losing weight because we will devour them in one day if we aren’t careful. I admit I am guilty of eating too many Oreos. However, these cookies and cream flapjacks can be consumed anytime you get an Oreo cookie craving. Just make sure that if you buy Oreos for this recipe, just divvy the rest of them up into single portion control packages and eat them in moderation. Check out her recipe here.

Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin Spice is all the rage every fall and PS lovers get their fill as much as possible until it disappears for the year. These flapcakes are the perfect combination with your coffee (even pumpkin spice) on a crisp fall day.  You can find the recipe here.

It is natural and lower in sugar most varieties of Nutella. Use Justin’s Hazelnut butter to make these delicious hotcakes. Find the recipe here.

Easy Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Casserole Bake 0 3

Chicken Pot pie with biscuits recipe
This content may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Read our disclosure here.

I absolutely love any version of chicken pot pie that I can get my hands on. I have made a wide variety of the favored pie – including casseroles. I have to be honest – my FAVORITE chicken pot pie is a traditional and completely homemade pie, from crust to filling. However, I don’t always have the time to make that flaky, creamy, and mouth-watering dish.

The Easy Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Casserole is one of my personal favorites. So when you don’t have time to prepare a crust – this casserole version is a great meal option for those busier days. Switch out any of the veggies that I used in this casserole for your favorites – and make it your own! You can’t go wrong with this easy baking option.

Chicken Pot pie with biscuits recipe

Today, I’ve collaborated with Riverbend Home to bring you this yummy, easy homemade chicken pot pie casserole recipe! They sent over the gorgeous Berghoff Essentials Cutlery Set (15 piece including block) that I used throughout the video. I had recently been on the search for a new set, and this fit perfectly with my needs. I love this set so much, that you are likely to see it pop up in future recipe videos for the next few years.

As I mentioned in my Instant Pot Cheesy Chicken and Rice recipe, I had forgotten what a good cutlery set felt like. I had my previous block for over a decade and it wasn’t the best nor had I sharpened them properly. I feel so spoiled with these knives and vow to care for them as they should be.

Chicken Pot pie with biscuits recipe

This 15-piece knife set is made from high-quality stainless steel with black, riveted handles for a safe, comfortable grip and anti-skid effect are very ergonomically. The blade is hand-sharpened and provided with a quality label. The stylish wooden block features a stable anti-skid base. The set includes a 3. 25″ paring knife, six 4. 75″ steak knives, a 5″ utility knife, a 6″ boning knife, a 7. 5″ multi=purpose knife, an 8″ bread knife, an 8″ chef’s knife, an 8″ sharpener, and a 9. 75″ pair of poultry shears in a stylish wooden block.
Check out my collaboration with Riverbend Home on a Coffee Bar Makeover and DIY.

What I love about this recipe is that it’s hard to mess up or go wrong. You can literally switch out everything I’ve used for your preferred ingredient – and it will be amazing. I believe that in the video I state that I used buttermilk biscuits, but they are clearly the flaky version. You could even use croissants. For that, you would want to refrain from tolling them, and just lay them flat on top of the filling.

Trade out the veggies that I used for your favorites. A lot of people like potatoes, corn, green beans – so many choices! If you’d prefer a gravy rather than the cream of chicken soup that I used, feel free to make or purchase some for the creamy ingredient. You really can not mess this up!

I do want to show off this serrated knife from the Berghoff Essentials Cutlery Set for a moment! I’ve never been overly impressed with serrated knives. They aren’t the most used cutlery item in this kitchen – and it’s just a knife, right? But this one is a boss! I’ve even opted to begin using it on foods that you don’t typically use a serrated knife on. Example, the onion in this video. I know, I know – it’s not used for onions! But I just love how it grips the onion and keeps it from being so slippery for me. But, you do you and use whatever knife you want when dicing your onions. No judgment!

Check out the video above for complete instructions on making this casserole. The recipe is also listed below!

Decorating and Personalizing with Sticker Kid 0 5

I had thought that I would start this article off with a walk down memory lane – and remind you of how neat it was to be a kid and have something with your name on it. Do you remember buying pencils or keychains with your name? As a kid, I loved that.

But I’ll be honest – as an adult – I still love it. I’m putting my name, our last name or initials all over the place! So in reality, who doesn’t love it at any age?

It’s still fun to find items in a store that has my name or my children’s name on it – but I think it’s even more fun and quite useful to put our name on whatever I want!

Sticker Kid sent over the cutest labels – and I got to do just that. They have so many sticker shapes, sizes, uses — they even have posters!

I spent the weekend labeling-up the kid’s stuff and a few things of my own.

sticker kid personalized labels
You know what I love the most about Sticker Kid labels – other than the fun, personalization factor? The fact that it helps the kiddos (and me) keep track of their items. There used to be a time when I knew exactly which pencil and eraser belonged to my child. I also knew exactly how many items I sent with them out of the house. But, my brain is a little more frazzled and I need a little help remembering what I’ve purchased and sent with them. So, Sticker Kid can help me keep all of that in order.

Is that the backpack I bought for you, Joey? Yep! It has your name tag on it. Savannah, did I really buy you that water bottle? Yep! It has our name label on it.

Please tell me that I’m not the only one with a perpetual case of “mom brain”?
I had been worried that the labels and tags would be easily removable to the point where they could just fall off and be lost. But they are securely on each item.

sticker kid personalized labels
You may be tempted to solely use the labels on the typical items such as school supplies, and shoes. But I think they’re going to work very well when the kids head to camp and go on day-adventures.

I plan to label items such as hair dryers, safety kids, flashlights, combs, leave-in conditioners, sunblock, pool toys, bite cream, and the list goes on. What else would you label?

sticker kid personalized labels
I was excited to see their collection of kitchen labels and home decor items. Having just revamped one of my brands, I wanted to pay homage to it. These kitchen labels were the perfect item to keep it close.

I plan to use these to organize not only spices, but my espresso, flours, sugars, and oats.

sticker kid personalized labels
So, the poster is probably my most favorite item of all. Because I love putting our names everywhere! Right now, I’m attaching it to this old calendar board I thrifted last year.

I painted the frame white, added wood to the inner portion and covered it with chalk paint. This will hang in our kitchen – but I may rotate the poster throughout the house.

sticker kid personalized labels
I’d love to hear what your ideas on labeling are! What should I label next? Which item are you going to order or which one should I order next?

I love being creative but I’d love your suggestions as well. What would you use these labels on?

Here’s a list of some of their different label options:

  • Iron-on name labels for clothes
  • Medium labels
  • Mini labels
  • “Preschool Super Pack” of 154 labels
  • Kindergarten pack with 150 name labels – perfect for toddlers
  • “School Mega Pack” pack of 214 labels
  • Large labels
  • 80 Peel and Stick Clothing Labels
  • Small name labels
  • Heart labels
  • Square Photo labels
  • Shoe labels
  • “Book Pack” labels
  • 9 Right-left shoe labels
