Easy Protein Powder Pancakes
It’s so important to get enough protein in your diet each day. Sometimes it’s hard to find ways to eat your protein. These protein pancakes are the perfect recipe to start out your day. They take mere minutes to cook, which makes them even better. They are really healthy and will keep you full and satisfied until lunchtime!
Not only are these pancakes high in protein, but they are also low in calories. They only have a few ingredients which makes them so simple to whip up in the morning. There is nothing bad about this recipe, which means you have no excuse NOT to make them!
Even my kids go crazy over these pancakes. We love making them for a hearty before-school breakfast. Add a little fruit, turkey bacon, and orange juice for a complete meal!
How to Make Protein Pancakes
Prep. Grab a skillet and heat it over the stove on medium. Coat the bottom of the pan with a little butter or coconut oil.
Mix. While the skillet is heating up, mix together the eggs, protein powder, baking powder and water in a large bowl.
Cook. Pour the pancake batter onto the skillet using a ¼ measuring cup. When you can see bubbles form on the top of the pancake, it’s ready to flip! Repeat with the rest of the pancake batter.
Serve with fresh fruit, sugar free syrup or butter. You could even add some raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, or bananas to the pancake batter to give it some variation.
TROUBLESHOOTING: If your pancakes are coming out too dry, try adding a little more liquid. You can also add a bit of smashed bananas, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, pumpkin puree, or applesauce.
How to store + Freeze protein pancakes
One of the best things about this recipe is how well these protein pancakes freeze!
Sometimes I will make a big batch of these pancakes, eat a couple for breakfast, and freeze the rest for busy mornings. I let my pancakes cool completely on a wire rack, place them on a baking tray in the freezer for about an hour and then transfer them to a freezer safe plastic bag.
They will last about 2 months in the freezer. Just take a couple out, thaw, reheat them in the microwave or toaster, and enjoy!!
