Protein Pancakes

Recipe by Protein Crazy

This recipe yields about 14 medium sized, delicious, high protein, pancakes; using the optional vital wheat gluten allows for a much fluffier pancake. I add the non-flavored, sugar-free, fiber supplement for just a bit more fiber. If you choose to refrigerate the left-overs you should consume them in 7 days or less; freezing will allow for more time. When frozen, I allow them to thaw overnight in the fridge and then re-heat them in the microwave on high for about 2 minutes per 2 pancakes. Enjoy!

the texture is much different than your normal pancake however for those of us who are looking for a lot of flavor with our high protein/low sugar diets this recipe is perfect.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grind the oats in a food processor, or equivalent, to a medium/fine texture.
  2. Mix the first 9 ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Mix the last 5 ingredients in a separate bowl.
  4. Combine all the ingredients into one bowl and hand whisk them together (Do not use a mixer).
  5. Mixing vigorously will cause the pancakes to be more flat and dense; ideally your mix should have a nice thick semi-smooth texture.
  6. Warm a skillet, or griddle, to 275-300 degrees (approx. med/high on a stove top).
  7. Apply a 1/2 cup of the pancake mix for each pancake.
  8. Use a pancake dispenser or a measuring cup to transfer the pancake mix from the bowl to the cooking surface.
  9. Cook each pancake for approximately 6 minutes, flipping half way through (approx. 3 minutes per side).
  10. Repeat steps 7-9 until all the pancake mix is used (yields approximately 14 medium sized pancakes).
  11. Let each pancake cool for a minimum of 1-2 minutes and serve.
  12. Add sugar free syrup, as desired, for a low calorie topping (approx. 35 calories per 1/4 cup).
  13. Refrigerate or freeze the left-overs.
  14. Enjoy!
