Do you love pancakes, but hate the carb and sugar count? Good news – we have healthy protein pancakes on the menu for you. Made with only five ingredients, these flapjacks are a quick and easy breakfast that even the greenest of cooks can make.
What are protein pancakes?
If you’re tired of using your protein powder to only make shakes – this is a tasty and delicious option to get that protein in. These protein pancakes are made without flour and sugar. Instead they are made with banana, egg, and protein powder – for a really healthy and tasty breakfast. I love making these a part of my weight loss journey.
What Do I Need To Make Protein Pancakes?
The ingredient list is very short for these nutritious and healthy protein pancakes. You’ll need:
- Biochem Whey Protein Isolate + Joint
- baking soda
Let’s Talk Protein Powder
There are a lot of protein powders out there – so choosing a quality product can sometimes be hard. I likeBiochem protein because they have been in business for over 15 years, and the brand is #1 in whey proteins. Aside from their whey protein they also have a vegan powder that is also delicious. This line is certified gluten free – which isn’t always true when it comes to protein powder. I know I’m getting a quality ingredient with this brand – all ingredients are sourced in the U.S., and the powders also include 20 amino acids. I’ve chosen the natural flavor of the Whey Protein Isolate + Joint varierty for this recipe – but they have a wide range of flavors to suit your taste.
Collagen is so good for you – which is another reason I love this particular protein powder. It really helps with support for joint comfort and flexibility.
How Do I Make Protein Pancakes?
- Add eggs, banana, baking soda, and salt to a blender jar.
- Add Biochem protein powder.
- Blend until well combined and smooth.
- Cook on a skillet until bubbles start to pop, then flip and cook 1-2 minutes on opposite side.
- Serve with berries, powdered sugar, or honey.
What Do I Put On These Flapjacks?
Try topping with:
- fresh berries
- powdered sugar
Can I Make These Ahead?
Yes! You can make a large batch – and then refrigerate or freeze. Pop into the microwave for 1 minutes, and you have a warm and delicious protein pancake.
