3-Ingredient Protein Pancakes

Pancakes may seem like a laborious morning meal to make. But, oh contraire! Unless you’re grabbing a protein bar and rushing out the door, nearly every other breakfast requires at least three ingredients. What’s better about these particular pancakes is you get tons of protein, whole grains and pure deliciousness. Make these once and try to tell me I’m wrong.

3-Ingredient Protein Pancakes

Makes:  2 (basically enough for 1 person, but you can multiply the recipe very easily to make more)
Nutritional profile:  
226 calories
20 g carbs
29 g protein

Ingredients

½ cup oats
1 scoop protein  powder
about ¼ cup almond milk

Directions

1. In a small bowl, blend all [3!] ingredients. Use only enough almond milk to get the batter moist and mixable.

2. Turn stove top to medium-high heat and let a pan heat up.

3. Pour batter onto hot pan and cook until it begins to bubble. Flip your flapjacks and finish cooking through.

4. Using a second scoop of protein powder and just enough almond milk to make a somewhat-thin consistency, you can easily make protein “syrup” to drizzle over top. I added almond butter to mine and loved every bite!

Tip: the kind of protein you use DOES matter! I use Cellucor, because I’ve found it to blend the best for pancakes and waffles, especially. Let me know what brand(s) you’ve tried and leave me a comment about how it turned out!

    How many pancakes does this make, 2? Or does it make enough to serve 2 poeple?

      Hi Justine – it makes multiple smaller-sized pancakes. I’d say it’s enough to serve one. Let us know if you try it!

    I would appreciate an actual measuring cup measurement or weight for the protein powder. I don’t tolerate dairy protein well and protein powders come with a variety of scoop sizes. I will likely try this with hemp protein or VegaSport.
