Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

Oatmeal Protein Pancake 01 (Large)

I’m about to introduce you to my newest obsession…protein pancakes! I make them a million ways, but this is one of my favourite versions! I had one of these fat, big pancakes after a hard morning workout this morning before everyone else was up (sometimes that’s the only way to get your workouts in!) and it was a-mahhhh-ziiing! It’s got loads of protein (with my protein powder about 30g!), fibre, healthy fats, it’s gluten free, dairy free, and it’s filling…which is why this is one of my favourite breakfasts ever.

This is a basic recipe…use your imagination and go wild! There’s lots of fun flavours you can make…I’m sure I’ll be posting more of them! Maybe coconut chocolate (since I’m craving of this combo lately!) banana, blueberry, or peanut butter! Mmmmm…

I used a whole organic egg in this because I’m one of those people who believe in lots of healthy fats, but you can easily just add more egg whites if you’re not keen on the egg yolk.

Oatmeal Protein Pancake

  1. ¼ cup quick cooking oats
  2. 1 organic egg
  3. 1 egg white
  4. 1 scoop protein powder
  5. 1 tbsp. organic ground flaxseed
  6. 1 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
  7. 1 packet Truvia

Just whisk up all those ingredients in a bowl. Pour onto a lightly misted (with olive oil) non-stick pan and cook! Simple as that…it’s such an easy breakfast to make and it literally takes just minutes. If you find it’s too dry, just add more almond milk!

I topped mine with plain yogurt (you can sweeten it with Truvia – it’s what I do!) and fresh, organic strawberries from the garden. Dig in!

And just when you thought it couldn’t get better I smothered my pancake with pure maple syrup (yes, smothered!). I could sense little angels dancing on my tongue.

    Wow, that does sound like something that’ll get you going in the morning! And I love putting yogurt on my pancakes too. Thanks for the recipe. I’ve never bought protein powder, but I’m going to bookmark because I’m very intrigued by the ingredients here. PS I love the way you create your recipe cards.

    Looks healthy and divine!

    I am making this a waffle. Thank you SO much! (Sorry, pancakes aren’t Husband’s thing… :) )

  4. Simone

    It sure looks healthy and delicious (which are always the best combo’s in my book.. :)

  5. Nina @ DailyKale

    Charissa! These are brilliant! Protein powder in a pancake?! Wow…esp on the pure maple syrup–*so* with you! That is pure heaven. On a separate note…just caught a glimpse of your Choconana smoothie…I suspect the blender will be running again after my workout! :) xo

    What a great idea. They say having protein in the morning is really good for you and helps fill you up for the rest of the day. This is a great alternative to eggs!

  7. Kat

    That looks yummy and oh so easy to make. You are really motivating me to eat more healthy – thankyou! :-)

  8. Nadia

    It looks très bien! :))) My husband is a pancake freak… he wants pancakes all the time, at any time of the day, so I’m in a constant search for new recipes :)

    I have yet to try protein pancakes but they would be an awesome post workout/run breaky! I have a favorite multigrain mix I use and add stuff to it – fruit, flax, chia seeds – always thinking up a new combo. I love topping my pancakes with Greek yogurt for extra protein too!
    I found your blog from you guest post at Carissa’s blog and I have to say I love it!

  10. Erica

    What a wonderful idea! It sounds healthy and looks delicious!

  11. Tiffany

    How crazy! I made (vegan) peach-banana-strawberry-granola pancakes last weekend… and yes, you guessed it–added protein powder! Such a great way to sneak in some extra protein. And I love how fluffy your pancakes look!

    This brings back memories! When I was a serious gym rat several years ago I used to make protein pancakes with blueberries. I’ll have to try your version — maybe it will motivate me to get back to working out somehow!

  13. myFudo

    looks really great. I know I’ll be obsessed too once I get my hands on them, looks delicious.

  14. Katie

    Hey There! Love your blog, and your pics! Beautiful! :) I love the looks of these pancakes too! :)

    is there a way to make the protein content (in grams) higher than the carb content with this protein pancake?

  16. Charissa

    Iby~ There are few ways you can do this!
    1. Use a protein powder that is higher in grams of protein
    2. Reduce the oatmeal. I make protein pancakes with no oatmeal all the time and they’re great! Try using 1/8 cup instead.
    3. Add a couple tablespoons of cottage cheese. I love adding this because of the added protein and the texture it makes!

    […] After a night of restless sleep this weekend courtesy of my son, I made oatmeal protein pancakes for the first time eva! They were a bit gummy in texture but it wasn’t bad by any means, and they kept me full for a decent 3 1/2 hours (I typically get hungry every 2 hours ). I used this recipe found here: […]

    The Pancakes were too dry. Is the quick oats have to be Pre cooked?

  19. Charissa

    Patty~ No, they don’t have to be precooked. If you find it’s too dry, just add more almond milk or even add a little yogurt to the batter before you cook it.
