The Best Protein Pancakes! These are super easy with no refined grains or refined sugar. Just oats, banana, and eggs!
- 1 cup oats
- 1 banana
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- a pinch of cinnamon
- 1–2 scoops protein powder (about 1/4 cup, or 29 grams)
- 2 tablespoons flax meal
- Run everything through the blender on medium low speed until very well mixed.
- Heat a nonstick griddle to medium high heat. Add batter in small circles – about 1/4 cup per pancake. Sprinkle with blueberries or 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.
Update 7/12/22: Based on reader feedback and additional testing, we’ve reduced the amount of baking powder to 1 teaspoon (previously 4 teaspoons).
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!
