Protein Pancakes are super easy with no refined grains or sugar. Just oats, eggs, and banana. These Protein Pancakes have no refined sugar because banana’s got your back. Also- lots and lots of protein from protein powder if you want to or protein just from the eggs and egg whites. Although they’re extremely yummy.
Protein Pancakes are the new breakfast on the block and I am liking it A LOT and hoping that you people will like it too. This simple recipe for protein pancakes takes minutes to prepare and is a great way to kick-start your day with a protein boost.
Why should you have protein in the morning? Well, research has shown that people who include protein at breakfast have better appetite control throughout the day. You can eat them for breakfast, as a pre-workout snack, or before bedtime to fill up your energy reserves for the night. Because they are mainly protein and slowly digested carbs, they provide energy to your muscles for several hours after you eat them without spiking your blood sugar.

How to make Protein Pancakes with Banana and Oats | Recipe
- Run everything through the blender on medium-low speed until mixed well.
- Heat a nonstick griddle to medium-high heat. Add batter in small circles – about 1/4 cup per pancake. Sprinkle with chocolate chips if you want. When the edges start to look dry (2-3 minutes), flip and cook another minute or two on the other side.
- Top with anything you like! I like syrup and peanut butter and chocolate chips.
- If the pancakes are falling apart, you may need to turn the heat up. We consistently get pancakes that hold and flip when the heat is at a high enough level and when we use a nonstick pan. You can also add more or less flax to get the consistency just right for you.
- I kept the batter in individually portioned jars for easy ready-made breakfast. You can also refrigerate or freeze cooked pancakes.
