Ideal Pancakes

Great for Recovery and Strength Building 

I can not resist a stack of slap jacks with melting butter, as warm sweet maple syrup flows down the sides of fluffy homemade pancakes! These Ideal Pancakes are a great carbohydrate source and allow for omitting specific ingredients. This can allow for macro customizing for individuals goals and daily nutrient requirements.   When I have my second large meal for the day I can pound back anywhere from 6-8 of these delicious warm maple cake treats ! This refills my muscles with plenty of Glycogen and provides the energy needed for intense strength building workouts.
