If there’s something I love on the weekend, it’s post-workout breakfasts. I love sweet or savoury brunches to get you in the weekend mood. This is without a doubt the best protein pancakes recipe I’ve ever created and I wanted to share it. I’ve played around with different ways to make them before but never as moist and fluffy as these. They can be made without protein if you just want some alternative pancakes and they contain no banana. Which seems to be rare amongst other recipes I’ve looked for.
The Best Protein Pancakes Ingredients
- 40g oat flour (or porridge oats blended)
- 25g protein powder (I use vanilla)
- 100g protein fromage frais (Greek or normal plain yoghurt also works)
- 2 medium eggs separated
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Coconut oil/spray oil for cooking
- If you’re using porridge oat, the first thing you’ll need to do is blend them into a powder.
- Next, mix all the other ingredients together except the egg whites. You may need to add a splash of water into this as it can be a little thick without the whites from the eggs.
- In another jug/bowl, whisk up the egg whites until they are nice and stiff, as if you are making meringues.
- Fold in the other mixture to the egg whites gradually to combine.
- Use your oil/spray of choice with a frying pan on a medium heat.
- Pour the mixture into the centre of the pan and wait until you start to see a couple of bubbles before flipping. These pancakes can take a bit longer as the mixture is so thick and aerated so bear this in mind with how big you choose to make them.
- Spray in between each pancake to ensure they don’t stick to the pan.
- Pile them up on a plate, add your topping and voilà; moist, fluffy protein pancakes to kickstart your weekend.

I must admit, these take a bit longer to make and cook than most recipes but I think following these steps is what makes them the best protein pancakes! If you’re in a rush, skip the egg whisking part but just bear in mind, they wont be anywhere near as fluffy.
You can also try adding in a scoop of peanut butter, chocolate chips and vanilla extract if you want some extra yum in there. I like to top mine with fruit and either some yoghurt or The Skinny Food Company syrups or spreads. A personal favourite is their white chocolate spread teamed with some raspberries and strawberries.
If you make some, let me know what you thought!
