Protein Pancakes – and easy pancake recipe that comes together in the blender with no refined sugar, flour and lots of protein to fill you up all morning!
Lazy weekend mornings are the best, especially when they involve a stack of pancakes topped with all the goodies. You can pick fruit, chocolate chips, maple syrup, or even whipped cream if you want to go all out.
But there is just something about pancakes that says the weekend is off to a good start in my book. Sometimes though, you want those pancakes to be loaded with good for you, filling ingredients that you can feel good about eating.
These protein pancakes are super easy to make because everything comes together in the blender! You just dump, let it process and then cook the pancakes. You can’t get much easier than that.
What’s In Protein Pancakes
- Old Fashioned Oats
- Protein Powder
- Greek Yogurt
- Vanilla Extract
- Baking Powder
Notice these are protein pancakes without banana! Most recipes call for banana, but I like to reserve my bananas for these Banana Pancakes, so I leave them out and use Greek Yogurt instead.
This is a great base recipe that you could add berries, chocolate chips, nuts, toasted coconut, or just about anything else to.
I am all about anyway I can get protein in my diet, because I am just not good at it. And these protein powder pancakes are a great way to start the day. The protein powder, oats, and Greek yogurt really do a great job of filling you up and keeping you full until lunch time.
