Protein Powder Pancakes

I love a good stack of pancakes. Whether it's a classic fluffy pancake or a lemon ricotta recipe, they always make my mornings 10x better. Make a big batch on Sunday morning, and your breakfasts are set for the week! The best part is, you'll never get sick of them because there are ENDLESS topping combinations.


– Banana – Protein powder – Oats – Baking powder – Milk -- Vanilla extract – Cinnamon – Pinch of salt – Brown sugar

Can I use a flavoured protein powder?

Yes, this is one of the quickest ways to switch up these protein powder pancakes! My go-to flavours are vanilla or chocolate, but get creative!


These protein powder pancakes can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. When freezing, I recommend layering each pancake between sheets of parchment paper to prevent sticking. To reheat, I like toasting them to bring back the "crisp" edges of a fresh pancake. Not to worry though, the microwave also works in a pinch.

Top Tip

I like making several different flavors within the same batch. I usually do this by adding different mix-ins in each pancake while cooking, then adding different toppings before I pack them away.

Are these pancakes a balanced breakfast?

Yes! On their own, they contain fibre from the oats, protein from the protein powder and some fruit from the banana. I would recommend rounding out this meal with a little more fruit for extra fibre to make it more filling!
