All of the ingredients in this delicious Cinnamon Roll Pancake recipe are healthy, because they help your body function like it should.
Although, pancakes mostly get a bad rep because of all the carbs - let's talk about that for a moment.
In fact, carbohydrates are important for healthy testosterone production. Not to mention overall well-being and supporting exercise.
Heck, Professor Mark Kraub lost 27 pounds by eating only Twinkies and Doritos chips. How? Fat loss comes down to eating less calories than your body uses each day. That's simply the law of thermodynamics.
We're not saying this is a good route for losing a few extra pounds, but you get the point - carbs are not the enemy here.
So, for your reference, a scientifically sound amount of carbs should be about 50% of your daily calories. About 20% of your calories should come from protein and the other 30% should be dietary fats.
This isn't the time and place to dive into the entire reason why sugar is actually good for us, but here's what you should know:
Sugar is actually found in most whole foods naturally.
It's the primary source of energy for the major internal organs, glands, and muscles - especially the thyroid (the gland that controls metabolic rate and energy production).
Lastly, glucose and fructose have antioxidant-like effects.
These two fats are mostly saturated and monounsaturated. The types of fat that increase T are saturated fats (SFAs) and monounsaturated fats (MUFAs), while polyunsaturated (PUFAs) actually tend to lower testosterone.
Cinnamon has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in a number of human studies.
And what's more, cinnamon has also been shown to reduce oxidative damage in multiple bodily tissues. So not only is this an awesome ingredient for this pancake recipe, but that's also why we included it in our product Sensolin.
The good stuff, (real crystal, sea, or rock salt) not the basic table salt actually contains 60+ trace minerals.
Pretty awesome ingredients huh? Now, let's get to the part you've been waiting for - exactly how to make these delicious cinnamon roll pancakes.
