How to Make Protein Pancakes
Making protein pancakes is super simple and we’ve broken things down into just a few steps so that you can make the tastiest protein powder pancakes out there!
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
Our protein powder recipe calls for whole ingredients. Here’s what you need:
- white whole wheat flour
- protein powder
- unsweetend almond milk
- coconut oil
Step 2: Use your Favorite Protein Powder
We tested this recipe using our favorite plant-based protein powder, Garden of Life, however, you can use whatever protein powder you want! If you’re unsure of what kind of protein powder you might like, check out our Guide to Protein Powders. We tested some of the best protein powders out there in the plant-based and whey categories!
Step 3: Don’t overmix
Like all pancake recipes, make sure not to overmix your batter! There’s nothing worse than a flat pancake…amiright?
Step 4: Cook on medium
When cooking your blueberry protein pancakes, turn your burner to medium heat. This will allow your pancakes to fully cook in the middle. If the burner is too hot, you risk scorching the outside while undercooking the inside.
Step 5: Toppings
I’m a toppings girl. There’s no such thing as a stack of pancakes without toppings. Here are some we recommend for these blueberry protein pancakes!
- cashew butter
- fresh blueberries
- maple syrup
- chia seeds
- hemp seeds
