Last week I jumped on the protein bandwagon and bought my first giant protein powder tub. I was super exited to start drinking it after my workouts to help with recovery but… I did not love the taste of it! So that got me thinking of what I could make for breakfast that could use the protein powder rather than just drinking it. I settled on trying out some protein powder pancakes after doing a lot of Googling and this is the result! Each serving (about 3 small pancakes) has about 25 grams of protein and to bump that up I sometimes added a scoop of greek yogurt to the pancakes. These are great for meal prep – this recipe made 15 small pancakes so three for each morning!

Ingredients 

  • 60 g protein powder
  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 1/4 cup flour (any type)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 bananas
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs + 2 egg whites

Process 

Heat pan on stove top to medium heat. Mix dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. In a medium bowl, combine wet ingredients and mix until blended. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix. If you want smooth pancakes, you can use an immersion or regular blender to blend the mixture. Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to the hot pan – be careful! Scoop 1/3 cup of the mixture into the oiled pan. Flip the pancake when you see bubbles forming on the surface.

If you are meal prepping these, you can freezer them wrapped in parchment paper for easy defrosting. I recommend taking them out the night before to defrost slowly in the fridge. I added some frozen berries to mine as a sweet topping but you can add whatever suits you. Happy eating!
