I feel like a pancake pro😍 I love pancakes and I think these have got to be my favorite ones!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Pancakes:
1/3 cup quick oats
1/3 cup flour (I used whole wheat)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp stevia or ¼ cup brown sugar
Milk (I use almond milk and add to desired consistency, about ¾ cup)
Mini chocolate chips!
Mix all dry ingredients together and then add in the milk. Make pancakes on the stove over low-medium heat. Check underneath and flip when you see some bubbles.
I just eat these as is. I don’t add anything else to them! Not even some syrup. Yup, they’re that good. It’s like having dessert for breakfast! Which means these are also a great “breakfast for dinner” recipe!
What a great way to start out the weekend! My protein chocolate chip cookie dough pancakes and some blackberry mojito flavored hot tea😍

🔺1/3 cup quick oats
🔺1 scoop protein powder (I use vanilla)
🔺1/2 tsp baking powder

I have been making protein pancakes for YEARS (honestly- since 2008!) and I think I’ve found my perfect recipe. I like my pancakes a little cakey but not too thick and fluffy- somewhere between a traditional one and a crepe or Swedish pancake.
I did not use any protein powder in this recipe because I’ve yet to find a whey protein that doesn’t taste grainy or dull when it’s cooked. If you have a suggestion for me please let me know, I’m always on the lookout for great new whey protein to try.
5 egg whites (I used actual eggs, you can use ones in the carton too)
20g oatmeal (0.25 cup)
35g applesauce (1/6 cup)
27g plain greek non-fat yogurt
0.4 cup of soy milk (I use Soy Slender Vanilla- it’s delicious with great macros!)
1 tsp (3g) of baking powder
Put the oatmeal into your food processor. Pulse until oats have a flour consistency with some flakes (up to 1 minute).
Mix egg whites, greek yogurt, apple sauce and soy milk together with a whisk. Blend until combined.
Mix baking powder with oats. Add these dry ingredients to the wet ones and whisk until combined.
Coat non-stick pan with butter or olive oil 0 calorie spray. Make sure it is warm enough for the mixture to sizzle when it hits the pan (but not so hot that it’s smoking!)
Carefully pour pancake mix into the pan. You can do three small per batch or large pancakes. Spray the pan between each batch. Watch the mixture closely as bubbles will not form like they would with ‘regular’ pancakes.
Enjoy with maple syrup, whipped cream, greek yogurt or fresh fruit! The pictures above have syrup and fruit on them plus a little greek yogurt/cream cheese mixture.

Mix it up and pan fry like a regular pancake, and I topped these with whipped cream and sprinkled cinnamon! DELICIOUS! Tastes like pie for reals.

How about some amazingly delicious protein pancakes as a meal but what also feels like a treat?! A great way to start this Valentine’s Day!😍
Cookies and Cream Protein Pancakes:
❤️1/4 cup flour
❤️2 tbsp protein powder
❤️1/2 tsp baking powder
❤️3/4 tbsp cocoa powder
❤️1 tbsp applesauce
❤️1/2 tsp white vinegar
❤️1/2 cup milk (I use almond milk)
Stir all dry ingredients together and then mix in the wet. Make pancakes on stove on low to medium heat. Flip when you see bubbles and/or peak under to check to see if it’s done (looks like a pancake should). The cream in between layers is vanilla Greek yogurt mixed with some crushed Oreo pieces.
Was feeling antsy on this rainy Wednesday and decided to try and make some pancakes using ingredients I had in the house (which are pretty limited!) and they actually turned out pretty damn good:)
½ cup of oatmeal
3 egg whites
Little less than ¼ cup of vanilla protein powder
½ cup of apple sauce
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 packet of stevia
Mixed it all up in the blender and then used ¼ cup of batter for each pancake :) made about 6 pancakes and there’s about 245 calories in total but I was full after 2.5 of these babies so ended up actually consuming way less calories than that! Tasted like an apple dessert kind of, super good with milk:)
