As a child, nothing would get me out of bed quicker than the smell of hot, golden, delicious pancakes on the griddle (or coming from the microwave). Back then, I would lather them with blueberries, chocolate chips, peanut butter, syrup… the list can keep on going.
As I grew up, I couldn’t experience my childhood pleasure without feeling guilty and spending the next hour on the treadmill. I knew there had to be some way that I could still crush my pancake craving while keeping my diet in check. The solution, protein pancakes!
I searched the internet for the perfect protein pancake recipe but couldn’t find one that delivered on all aspects a pancake should – flavor, texture and that fluffy, air-like consistency.
Luckily for me (and you), I created the perfect protein pancake recipe to start your day off right.
Step-up your breakfast game with these delicious, easy to make protein pancakes. No refined grains, no refined sugar, no butter, just healthy carbohydrates, and protein.
You can also have them for dinner or dessert, I won’t tell.
I used Vanilla Milkshake flavored protein for this recipe; however, you can use any other flavor such as Chocolate Milkshake or Strawberry Milkshake.
*Tip: Use coconut oil to heat the griddle to add some healthy fats while giving the pancakes and added layer of flavor.
This recipe will yield roughly ten protein pancakes. If you can’t finish them all, throw them in the freezer and reheat in the microwave at a later date.
Below you will find the nutrition facts for the recipe above, using a medium banana and not taking into consideration any additional toppings or syrups.
