Healthy Protein Pancakes 3 Ways

Thanks to PlantFusion for partnering with me and sponsoring this post. I’ve used their plant based protein powders for the past year and truly love them!Healthy Protein Pancakes 3 Ways- these 3 recipes are easy to throw together, perfect for meal prep, and the perfect light breakfast!

Have you recovered from Christmas yet!? I think for the first year ever, I’m genuinely ready to put aside cakes, and chocolate, and alcohol, and eat some good, wholesome foods again. All of the celebrating was truly wonderful but MAN is my body feeling it. Then again, maybe I’m just getting old.

I’m also recovering from the stress of the past week. While attempting to relax on Christmas eve (I’m not very good at relaxing), our carbon monoxide detector went off and we spent a few hours sitting at our neighbors house (thank goodness for amazing neighbors!) waiting to figure out what was going on. Long story short- we needed a new HVAC unit. That was unfortunate– and expensive. Then we got home that night and all of the electrical units in the kitchen were mysteriously not working (including the one powering the fridge). Mr. Britnell ran a power cord into the kitchen so all our food didn’t go to waste and then we managed to get it figured out the next day.

Needless to say— my relaxing holiday break has been far from relaxing. I’ve been stress eating ALL of the chocolate that santa left in my stocking (and it was a LOT!).

So, I’m starting out my new year healthy eating habits early with these protein pancakes featuring PlantFusion protein powder!

I first tried PlantFusion protein powder last year after getting a few samples from them at a health food expo that I attended (you can see all my vlogs from that trip HERE!!). Then I saw the protein powder for sale at my local Whole Foods and picked some up. So when they reached out about partnering together, I was super excited!

I’ve found it difficult to get enough healthy protein in my diet lately. Between breastfeeding and just generally be busy, I’ve found it more important than ever to eat a good, balanced diet. And for me, protein is always something that I struggle getting enough of.

Enter: HEALTHY PROTEIN PANCAKES!!

Healthy Protein Pancakes 3 Ways- these 3 recipes are easy to throw together, perfect for meal prep, and the perfect light breakfast!

I’ve been making several versions of these pancakes for years. It was one of the first recipes I ever shared on my blog. But since then, I’ve experimented quite a bit with the recipe and found new, delicious ways to making these pancakes. AND, that’s what we have here today! THREE different ways to make these Healthy Protein Pancakes.

The main difference is WITH oats or WITHOUT oats. Personally, I prefer these with the oats. It makes the texture more true to regular pancakes and they just generally taste a bit better to me. BUT, the oat-less pancakes are pretty darn good too and super simple with only 4 main ingredients: banana, protein, egg white, and flaxseed meal.

The recipes makes enough for one large breakfast or a medium breakfast for 2.

BONUS: they freeze GREAT so it’s perfect for meal prep! I highly suggest tripling the recipe and making enough of these for freezing and enjoying in the future.

Here are the 3 recipes we’re working with:

1. Extra Light Banana Protein Pancakes

These are the “original” protein pancakes that I used to make all of the time. They’re super simple and clean. I use a blender to whip up a big batch BUT you could easily stir these together in a bowl; mashing the banana with a fork.

Add any of your favorite fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips to spice these up a bit!

2. Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

These are similar to the original but with egg yolk AND oats added in. I LOVE the addition of the oats and high recommend giving it a try!

3. Chocolate Protein Pancakes

These are pretty similar to the oatmeal protein pancakes but with a bit of cocoa powder in them and chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla. Kind of obsessed with these!!

AND that’s all I have for you today! Thanks again to PlantFusion for sponsoring this post! And thank YOU for supporting the brands that support my blog!

Description

Make these easy protein pancakes THREE different ways!


Ingredients

For the extra light protein pancakes:

1 banana

1/2 cup of egg whites

1 scoop of PlantFusion Vanilla Bean protein powder

1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal

optional: sprinkle of cinnamon

For the Oatmeal Pancakes

1 banana

1 cup of rolled oats

1 egg

1/2 cup of egg whites

2 teaspoons of baking powder

sprinkle of cinnamon

pinch of salt

1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal

1 scoop of PlantFusion Vanilla Bean protein powder

For the Chocolate Protein Pancakes

1 banana

1 egg

3/4 cup of rolled oats

1/2 cup of milk (any kind works)

1 scoop of PlantFusion Chocolate Brownie protein powder

2 teaspoons of cocoa powder

1 teaspoon of baking powder


Instructions

For all 3 of the pancakes: blend all of the ingredients together in a blender until smooth. The oatmeal pancakes take a bit longer so the oats can get fully blended.

Heat a griddle to 300 degrees F and lightly grease with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter on the griddle and cook for 5 minutes on each side.

The key with these pancakes is to cook them on a lower heat than traditional pancakes and for a longer period of time than traditional. If using a skillet, you want the heat on medium low.

Top with your favorite pancake toppings and ENJOY!!

 

Notes

The extra light recipe makes just 2 medium pancakes while the oatmeal recipes make 4 medium pancakes each.

  1. Horrible and rock hard even on low 

    • SO sorry to hear this! I make these pancakes all the time and have never had them get anywhere near “hard”. It might have something to do with the kind of protein powder used. I’ve only ever made these with a few different brands
