Maintaining normal blood sugar levels is an important part of avoiding chronic health issues, managing weight and feeling your best. One of the simplest ways to do so is by focusing on eating a balanced, low glycemic diet. As a result of this, traditional pancakes (loaded with white flour and sugar) aren't a great everyday option.
We love adding protein powder to pancake mix to give it extra staying power. We've rounded up several of our favorite blood-sugar-friendly mixes. Most are gluten free, keto-friendly, and low sugar.
