I topped my Coconut Protein Pancake with shredded coconut, chia seeds, and sunflower butter. The combination of flavors and textures was so, so delicious! I also love how thick and hearty the pancake turned out. It was quite satisfying!

A little while later, I had a glass of iced coffee with soy milk. I typically like to drink water with my breakfast and then enjoy my iced coffee afterward. I figure my body needs water after sleeping all night long, and I’m just going to dehydrate it with coffee, so I might as well get a head start on the hydration!
