Protein pancakes make the perfect post-work out snack (to help with muscle recovery) and when eaten for breakfast could help with weight loss – this is because protein makes you feel fuller for longer meaning less temptation to snack mid-morning (and so reduced calorie intake over the whole day).
I used MyProtein Whey powder in the recipe below but if you want a plant-based protein powder check out my Sativa Protein Review, and if you fancy an all natural protein powder and aren’t vegan, check out Purition and my Purition Review.
If you don’t have protein powder you can swap it for milk powder (see below) or check out my Greek Yoghurt Healthy Pancake Recipe which is naturally high in protein without the whey!
Nutrition stats are for the entire pancake batch (3 pancakes for 1 person!).
- 20g (1/4 cup) oats*
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1 egg white
- 1 scoop (~25g) vanilla protein powder**
- 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of water/milk***
*To make this recipe Gluten-Free use gluten-free oats
***Add more water/milk to your mix for a lighter pancake (or you could even add 1/2 tsp baking powder!)
Mix together the banana, oats, protein powder, egg white, cinnamon and water to make a paste (use a fork)
Spray a non-stick pan with 1 cal oil (or use a teaspoon of coconut oil) and pour 1/3 of the mixture into the pan
Fry on each side for 2 minutes or until cooked & repeat for the remaining 2 pancakes!
Serve with Greek yoghurt, agave nectar and chopped banana (my choice)
These pancakes used milk powder too – with fried frozen raspberries on the side!
Protein pancakes with a PB2 & Unsweetened Almond Milk Sauce plus a dash of sugar free syrup!
This recipe soaked 1/2 cups oats in a little water first before whisking in the protein, egg white and cinnamon, spooning into a pan and adding blueberries after 30 seconds. Flip once the batter looks cooked
Above: Made with oat flour (ground oats) for a finer batter!
