As you may already know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day so you want it to be packed with healthy ingredients and lots of protein! That’s because protein helps you feel full longer during the day, reduces cravings and hunger pangs, plus, helps maintain and increase muscle mass.

High-Protein Pancake Recipe

My Favorite High-Protein Pancake Recipe

I recommend having these pancakes before a workout because you want to burn some of those carbs. Also, the nutrition facts for this recipe do not include the berries and syrup so definitely keep that in mind when grabbing that syrup or honey jar.

Ingredients for 3 servings | total time: 20 minutes

  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (I use 100% Whey Protein)
  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut or almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • a dash of salt
  • 4 tablespoons of milk (fat-free or skim)
  • butter or cooking spray for frying
  • organic raw honey or maple syrup for topping
  • fresh berries and strawberries for topping

How To Make:

get out your food processor and combine the oats, protein powder, flaxseeds, eggs, baking powder, flour, cinnamon, salt, and milk. Blend until very smooth. You can whisk everything up by hand but that’ll take forever.

In a non-stick skillet or grill, apply the cooking spray or butter, and using a measuring cup or spoon, pour 1/4 of the mixture and let it cook on medium-low heat for 2 minutes on both sides or until done.

Top with maple syrup or honey and fresh berries. Bon appetite! This batter should get you 4-5 pancakes which is almost 2 1/2 servings since you can only have 2.
