Flourless Straight Up Protein Pancakes

If you aren’t into pancakes-it would be best to steer clear of my blog this week as this is the best holiday (tomorrow) ever.   If you have no idea what I’m talking about…well you will tomorrow.  Until then-

More than I would like to admit-I’ve been asked to make a flourless pancake recipe.  I know several of my blog readers eat very high protein diets and have asked if I would attempt a protein powder based feat.  The only reason I wouldn’t like to admit it is because I have not exactly perfected the recipe well enough to showcase it on the blog.

I promise you that I have not forgotten-In fact, I’ve attempted it several times.

I’ve just failed.  The pancakes haven’t stuck together or tasted like someone vommed.  (Yeah-I went there).

Anyways-I’ve finally gotten to a pancake that withholds the stress of flippage and sticks toge

ther.  We all know I only post recipes that I personally know I’ll be making often so it tastes good too.  I only really talk about breakfast foods because it’s my favorite meal and it’s basically all I can cook.  So there.

This particular protein pancake is chocolate but I know there will be plenty of different mix-ins and whatnot.  So be creative.

1 scoop protein powder1 egg¼ cup egg whites1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1 tablespoon baking powder

Sweetener to taste

(I would also say roughly ½ cup water or milk whatever you prefer).

Mix and pour on your griddle. 

So this came out much better than I anticipated (I believe that was thanks to the mass amount of egg used so it stuck together like no big deal).  They are quite good and when I’m needing a little (okay a lot) more protein than I’ll have these instead of a carb based pancakes.

Do they get my pancake seal of approval?

Yes most certainly-otherwise I would not have posted the recipe. 


  1. I might actually try this! I definitely need more protein in my diet anyway. I think we’re out of eggs right now though so it might be a few days. I’m glad this turned out neat… I bet it would be extra yummy if I used chocolate protein powder, too.

  2. Try the recipe I sent you! Did you mix anything in? Try chopped almonds and coconut shreds!
