Maple Protein Pancakes {Gluten Free} | Toned & Fit

Hoodies, hot cocoa, boots, jeans, cuddling, crisp air, and flushed cheeks… Doesn’t fall feel like a new year or beginning of sorts? As soon as the weather turns chilly I start craving apples, cinnamon, pumpkin, cider, cocoa, and squash.

I live for Autumn.

During one particularly chilly and rainy day this past week, I modified my favorite Vanilla & Blueberry Protein Pancakes into something that feels a little more “Fall.”
