Protein Pancakes!

I’ve seen numerous recipes for protein pancakes in the blog world, and I’ve been wanting to try them. I love pancakes, but rarely ever eat them. I don’t like the idea of eating pure carbs for breakfast. But throw some protein powder in there and I’m all for them!

I decided to make my first-ever batch of protein pancakes a couple days ago before work. Into a mixing bowl went the following:

  • 1/3 cup of Hodgson Mills Instabake Mix
  • 1/3 cup of soymilk
  • 1/2 cup of egg whites
  • 1 tbs of Nutribiotic vanilla rice protein powder
  • cinnamon

This resulted in some super thin batter. To thicken it up a bit, I added another tbs of protein powder and a couple tbs of oats. The result: a perfect pile of protein pancakes!

drizzled with sugar-free syrup

These were dense and chewy, with a very nice vanilla and cinnamon flavor. My batter yielded about 5 pancakes, all for about 300 calories. Sweet! You better believe I ate all 5 too! 🙂 I will definitely be making these again.

Have you ever experimented with adding protein powder to recipes?
