The perfect post-workout breakfast. Cinnamon/vanilla protein pancakes with blueberries, kiwis, mangoes, and topped with puréed berries!
Pancake mix ingredients: 1 scoop of vanilla protein, 1 cup of ground oats, 1 cup of egg whites, ½ cup of almond milk, 1 tablespoon of flax seeds, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Directions: mix all ingredients together in a blender - you should have a nice, thick mixture. If it’s too liquified, simply add more oats. Then cook in a lightly greased pan (I use olive oil) just as if you would with regular pancakes!
Blueberry topping: add and mix together a handful of blueberries and a little bit of coconut milk in a bowl, making sure you crush the blueberries well. Then, purée it in a blender for a few seconds to get a uniform mixture!
These are a stack of coconut chia vanilla protein pancakes layered with fresh strawbs and a warming blueb sauce🦄 Experimented with a new recipe and added waaaaay too much liquid so it was too soft, but the flavor was on point👌
Also did a killer home workout today🏃 Sprinted up and down 2 flights of stairs 10 times non-stop, rested for a few minutes and repeated 5 times. Drenched in sweat afterwards but totally worth it😅
One of the postworkout lunches i had a few days before i left germany: a Stack of fatfree vanilla protein pancakes topped with date syrup, fresh fruit and hempseeds 👌 can’t wait to get back on track when i’m home again!
Okay, so in my previous attempts to make protein pancakes I had been using chocolate protein powder.. but there was something just not right about having chocolate for breakfast. So in an attempt to attain the vanilla flavour without having any vanilla protein powder in the pantry, I came up with the following DIY:
¼ cup Wholemeal Flour
¼ cup Rolled Oats
2 Egg Whites
1 tbsp Ground Flaxseed
2 tbsp Almond Milk
1 tbsp Vanilla Essence
Mix together the above ingredients in a blender & pour into pan as you would a normal pancake. Makes 2 medium sized pancakes.
I topped mine with butter (because I’m obsessed with it) and cinnamon & they were DELICIOUS!!

1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup oats
2 Tbsp protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup brown sugar or 1 packet stevia (if you like sweet just add more, so like 2 packets)
Mini chocolate chips
½ cup milk, or to desired consistency (I use almond milk)
Mix all dry ingredients together and then stir in the milk and vanilla.
