Do they still sound so appealing? Probably not but most people would still eat them.
But what if I told you you could eat really, super duper healthy PROTEIN pancakes that were full of fiber, vitamins, healthy monounsaturated fats, no hard to pronounce ingredients, were SUPER delicious and they only took 5 minutes to make? Do I have you convinced yet?
Basic Protein Pancakes
- 1/3 cup dry oats (3-5min variety)
- 1 scoop vanilla whey
- 3 egg whites
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 3T greek yogurt
- optional: sweetener of choosing (ex. agave, real maple syrup, raw honey)
- ** if consistency is too dense add soy milk or water to thin it out
Mix together all the above ingredients and add in anything else of your choosing (ex. raisins, chocolate chips, etc). Over medium-high heat melt 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil (or oil of choosing) and spread it around the pan with a napkin (we just need enough to grease the frying pan; not enough to add greasiness). Pour batter in hot pan forming pancakes (should make about 4-5 pancakes). When the bottom of the pancake turns a caramel color (about 1-2 minutes), flip and let the other side cook for 1-2 minutes.
You can stack them or eat them as is. You can add whatever toppings or maple syrup!
1. Chocolate pancakes: add 1T cocoa powder

3. Banana pancakes: sub greek yogurt with mashed banana
4. Chocolate chip pancakes: add 2T dark chocolate chips to batter
5. Oatmeal raisin pancakes: add 2T Sunmaid raisins to batter
6. Peanut and jelly butter pancakes: top pancakes with 1T jam and 1T natural peanut butter
7. Strawberry shortcake: stack pancakes with greek yogurt and sliced strawberries in between each layer. Top with sliced strawberries and strawberry jelly.
