Pancakes have always been a weakness of mine and are so hard to give up! Luckily, you don’t have to give them up! This easy protein pancake recipe is the best one out there! 

This has got to be my favorite breakfast, and my sons too! I make it almost every morning. Really, the only time I don’t make it is when I’m out of cottage cheese.

I mean… why not? They’re delicious and super healthy. Packed with protein to keep you full. You can have raw maple syrup with it and I love to top it with fruit.

If I don’t put syrup or any other toppings on them, my son just grabs the pancakes and eats it like that- so it’s good on the go too!


Protein Pancakes Protein Powder



Collagen Protein PowderCollagen Protein Powder

If you love your protein, you’re going to love your pancakes! So picking a delicious protein powder is key.

The taste is going to vary a little depending on what flavor protein you use, but I haven’t had a bad one yet!

I absolutely recommend Perfect Keto’s Collagen Protein Powder (yes, even if you’re not on keto). It’s definitely my favorite & the best tasting protein powder out there for women. Because of the added collagen and MCT powder you get a ton of extra benefits that other protein powders don’t have. Like strong hair, skin and nails!

I normally use vanilla or chocolate protein, but I’ve also used other flavors for extra flavor. The salted caramel flavor is delicious!

They all taste amazing, though, so it just depends on your preference.

    I know this might sound weird; I am just starting out the 21DF ~ I am not a breakfast eater and looking for options. I can’t stand cottage cheese, I am assuming the cottage cheese “flavor” is masked by the oatmeal and flavor of protein powder? This sounds like something I could do. Thank you!!

    • Jessica says:

      I promise it doesn’t taste like cottage cheese at all! Everything else masks the flavor. Definitely try it, you wont regret it 🙂

    Brilliant recipe! I can have it as part of my ketogenic diet. Minus the maple syrup and fruit, of course!

    I don’t normally keep protein powder on hand, but these look like they would pack a nutritional wallop. I think I might be ordering some so I can cook these up and try them. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us!

    I am not big on additives and sugar, however, can I add cinnamon and or vanilla for extra flavor.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Yvelisse. The protein powder alone gives it a ton of flavor, but you can definitely add cinnamon or vanilla if you’d like more flavor.
