Protein Pancakes

I’m not a HUGE fan of eating sweet & savory meals for breakfast. I’m talking waffles, cereal, pancakes, etc. I like eggs and potatoes and buttered bread and ketchup, etcetc. But once in a while I make protein pancakes, and they’re PRETTY damn good. I have gotten so obsessed with these pancakes that I make them every Sunday morning now, after my run. They’re the perfect way to fill up after a sweaty cardio session. Rather than maple syrup I top mine with honey (and of course berries). To make these just that tiny bit sweeter, don’t be afraid to add some dark chocolate chips.

Total time:
Serves: 8 pancakes
  • Dry Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (ground up oats in a magic bullet)
  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • Canola oil/butter
  • Wet Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 C milk
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  1. Combine all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl
  2. In another bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients. In a large pan, heat up some canola oil or butter on medium heat
  3. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry, while constantly stirring. You may want to use a blender, but it is not necessary
  4. Scoop out about 1/4 cup and pour onto the heated pan. Cook for about 1.5 minutes (or until bubbles start to form on the edges) and then flip. Cook for another minute.
  5. Microwave some berries (or if you have fresh, even better!), and add them on top
If you prefer you can also play around with cottage cheese and yogurt for the wet ingredients to increase protein content
