Protein Pancakes


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 scoop (about 30 grams) protein powder (flavor of your choice)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional toppings: fresh berries, sliced bananas, nuts, honey, or maple syrup


  1. In a blender or food processor, add the rolled oats and blend until they turn into a fine flour-like consistency.
  2. Add the protein powder, ripe banana, eggs, milk, baking powder, and vanilla extract to the blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Let the batter rest for a few minutes to allow the oats to absorb the liquid.
  3. Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. If needed, lightly coat the surface with cooking spray or a small amount of oil.
  4. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until small bubbles start to form on the surface, then flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Repeat the process with the remaining batter until all the pancakes are cooked.
  6. Serve the protein pancakes with your favorite toppings, such as fresh berries, sliced bananas, nuts, honey, or maple syrup.
