This oatmeal protein pancakes recipe whips up delicious, easy protein pancakes in minutes. A good healthy protein pancakes recipe like this is hard to come by! It’s gluten free, ridiculously good, and you won’t even need protein powder!
This was the first protein recipe I made, but I didn’t think it up myself. I got it from Cut The Fat Podcast, and am ever grateful, as this is still one of my all-time favourite high protein breakfast foods! This oatmeal protein pancakes recipe is super easy to make, it’s healthy as heck, and it can be modified in a million ways. I’m actually thinking of doing a feature post on how to make protein pancakes, and exploring a bunch of different recipes and variations, so stay tuned!
This is actually one of the few protein recipes I’ve made so far that doesn’t require protein powder, sweeteners, or any other specialty ingredients, so it’s a great one to try if you’re looking for some easy high protein recipes to start out with. You will need a Magic Bullet or blender of some kind however.
I’ve made healthy protein pancakes for all my friends and family, and they love ’em – so be warned – try them once and you’ll never make regular pancakes again!
- 1 egg
- ⅓ cup oats (I use regular old Quaker quick oats, but others will work as well)
- ⅓ cup cottage cheese (I use 1%, 2% also works – you can also use low-fat greek yogurt, quark or ricotta instead)
- 1 tsp coconut oil (to coat the pan you cook them in – you can also use butter)
- ⅓ cup 2% greek yogurt dolloped on top of pancakes
- ⅔ cup blueberries (baked inside or sprinkled on top)
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup – just a drizzle for sweetness
- 1 tsp each of chia, hemp, and flax seeds sprinkled on top
- Throw egg, oats, and cottage cheese into magic bullet and blend until smooth (this may require some shaking to get things moving).
- If the batter is too thick, add a little drizzle of water or milk – it should be fairly thick though. If you add more than a drizzle of liquid, the pancakes may end up mushy inside.
- Heat the coconut oil in a large pan on medium heat, and pour (and scoop with spatula or spoon if needed) into 3 – 6 protein pancakes in the pan depending on how big you like them.
- Let them cook for a few minutes until you can see some air bubbles forming on top, then flip them, and let them cook for another few minutes.
- Add the toppings of your choice, maybe make a nice egg white omelette to go with it, and enjoy!
