Protein Pancakes!!

Protein pancakes are the antidote to the whole “pancakes make me feel like crap” thing.

I used to avoid pancakes like fast food…I mean, the plague. It wasn’t until l started making THESE protein pancakes that I learned that pancakes ACTUALLY DON’T have to be a pre-curser for a nap. And body fat.protein pancakes

Instead, pancakes like these protein pancakes will leave you feeling energized, full, satisfied, fit and happy. THUS, they can actually be a justifiable meal! (Yes, this includes the occasional “emergency” dinner.)

This video has 2 protein pancake recipes – 1 for my vegans out there and 1 for my egg-eaters out there (love you BOTH the same!), because no dietary restriction should EVER come between you and protein pancakes.

Remember: you can always doctor these to vary the flavors. I often put in a cap-full of different extracts, vary the protein powder flavors, add different fruits and smear with different nut butters. Gotta keep my protein-pancake-loving tastebuds on their toes!!!

These protein pancakes are often my post-workout meal as well as my pack-in-tupperware-for-long-flights snack. They’re my fancy Sunday brunch treat and even [sometimes] my “emergency” dinner. Teeheehee.

Serves: 1-2 servings
Ingredients

  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Add in the flax egg.
  4. Spritz a griddle or pan with some coconut oil and turn the heat to medium.
  5. Use your hand (hover it over the griddle) to test when the griddle is ready. When your hand feels nice 'n toasty, it's ready!
  6. Use a ¼ cup measurement to dump portions of the batter onto the griddle. Let it cook for 3-5 minutes.
  7. When your spatula easily slides under the pancakes, they're ready to flip!
  8. Flip them, then turn down the heat a smidge. Let them cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  9. Remove and eat as is, or top them with some nut butter, coconut/goat/almond yogurt, fruit and some sweetener.

  1. Can you sub. the protein powder for more eggs…? I don’t have it and my internet search hasn’t given me anything easy…

    I’m excited to try these recipes! Thanks!

    1. I wouldn’t suggest using more egg in place of protein powder but another flour like oat flour or rice flour would probably be great!!!

  2. The vegan pancakes are amazing! I will be making these at least every week. Thank you for the great recipe. You rock!
