Protein Pancake Inspiration

Honestly, I was never a pancake lover because I didn’t grow up eating them. We were more of a biscuit and gravy family, but after trying protein pancakes for the first time about five years ago, I became hooked. I now have protein pancakes for breakfast at least once a week and sometimes I’ll even enjoy them as a snack.

The first protein pancake recipe I tried was from the Tone It Up nutrition plan. It was easy and absolutely delicious and totally turned me into a pancake lover.

Today’s recipe is inspired by the original Tone It Up recipe I fell in love with years ago, but I spruced up a bit based on my current technique and tastes.

Protein Pancake Tips

Over the years, I’ve made so many protein pancakes and I’ve learned a few tips for making the perfect pancake every time.

  • Use non-stick spray and cook over a low heat. If you use medium to high heat, the outside of the pancake will heat too fast and burn before the center is set.
  • You’ll know the pancake is ready to flip when little bubbles appear across the pancake and you can easily get your spatula under the pancake.
  • I like using the batter to make three small pancakes for one serving instead of making one large pancake. They tend to cook faster, they’re easier to flip and it feels like you get more to eat! As a volume eater, this makes me happy!

Blueberry Protein Pancakes

Easy and delicious blueberry protein pancakes made with protein powder, egg whites and banana. You’ll love these topped with a drizzle of nut butter and maple syrup
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 1


  • 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 banana, mashed
  • almond milk, if needed
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • cooking spray, I like using coconut or avocado oil spray
  • non-stick pan


  • In a small bowl whisk together the egg whites and protein powder with a fork or whisk until all the protein powder is dissolved. I find that a whisk does a great job for mixing in the protein powder.
  • Stir in the mashed banana and add the blueberries. If the pancake mixture seems too thick you can add a splash of almond milk to thin it out a bit.
  • Spray a medium sized non-stick pan with cooking spray and set heat to low-medium (I use the number 3 on my stove). The lower heat is the key to making sure the pancake doesn’t burn. Pour in pancake batter and cook until little bubbles form (about 5 minutes).
  • Make sure the pancake has set enough before you try flipping it, or else you’ll end up with a scramble. Carefully flip the pancake over to the other side. Cook until pancake is done in the middle (typically takes another 2-3 minutes). Place pancake on a plate, top with your favorite pancake toppings. I like these with a drizzle of peanut butter and extra blueberries.

  1. Hi Brittany. Am anxious to try your jam since I have all the ingredients except for the stevia, but it seems to look quite seedy and I know my husband would prefer it to be smooth. Since I do have a Vita-Mix, can I just let it run and hopefully it will turn into a smooth jam? Thanks.

    1. Sure. I would also use ground chia seeds if you have those on hand. If not, you can grind regular chia seeds using a coffee grinder.

    Hey Brittany,

    This was an awesome recipe! I substituted chocolate protein powder since that is all we have in the house. I used the mixed berry jam (without the stevia) and it was delicious! Seems like a great way to start the day and a fun new recipe to add to the rotation. Your site is so inspirational and I really enjoy it!

    These look awesome Brittany! Since you’re a fan of protein pancakes, I’d love to send you some of ours to try – Just drop me a line if you’re interested. Love the chia jam idea btw!! Must try that!

  4. Can you make this without using the banana? I don’t like banana flavour in pancakes and just wondering whether you think it would still hold without the banana?

    1. hmmm… I haven’t tried this one without the banana, but I think it would work. Maybe try adding 1/4 cup of applesauce or make it without the banana and use almond milk if the batter is too thick. These Butternut Squash Protein Pancakes are another option that might work! Let me know if you try it without the banana. 🙂

  5. Directions Call to mix the flaxseed but the ingredients list doesn’t list flaxseed. How much?

        1. I haven’t ever tried this so I’m not sure how well they will turn out if you sub flaxseed eggs for the egg whites. Let me know if you try it!

  6. Hi darlin’! It’s Katharina 😘 I’m wondering… if I’m using whole eggs, what does that equate to (replacing the egg whites)? Thank you!

  7. What would the equivalent be in # of eggs if you don’t use egg whites (or don’t have them on hand?) I’d love to make this this weekend, but was curious if that would change the consistency of the pancake.

    1. You can use 2 eggs instead of the 1/4 cup of egg whites. It shouldn’t change the consistency too much… they might just be a bit thicker.

  8. Hi there! Your recipe looks delicious, but I was just wondering how many grams the scoop of vanilla protein powder is? I 100% want to make this for my SO and me 🙂

    1. Mine is 25 grams, but most brands are between 25 grams and 30 grams a scoop. Hope this helps!

    This didn’t work even a little bit for me. I tried twice. non-stick pan, cooking spray, low heat, medium heat… it didn’t matter. it just sticks to the pan, doesn’t cook the center, and by the time its all done, ends up more like scrambled eggs- which aren’t terrible. haha but definitely not pancake-like. 🙁

    1. Oh no!! I’m so sorry these pancakes didn’t turn out for you, Sierra. I’ve never heard of that happening before with these pancakes. Did you change anything about the recipe?

    For the last month every Sunday I’ve been trying different protein pancake recipes, so I was stoked when I woke up to this recipe notification!! Best one I’ve tried by far!! I wanted to take pictures but I ate it too fast lol

    1. Ahh that makes me so happy to hear, Margaret! I’m so glad these pancakes were a hit. Thanks for making my recipe and for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. The reviews are super helpful for other readers, so I appreciate it. <3

    1. Hey Leyla – The serving size is for one person. It will yield more than one pancake (depending on how big you make them).

    Loved this recipe! So delicious!! I used two eggs egg whites and they turned out perfectly. They just didn’t bubble so I had to keep a close eye not to burn them!

    1. Yay!! I’m glad these pancakes turned out for you, Michaela! Thanks for trying my recipe and for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. I so appreciate it. 🙂

  12. Your Blueberry Protein Pancake sounds marvelous! Before I get this wrong, would you please express the 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder in tsp or tablespoon measurement?

    1. Hey Bonnie – each protein powder varies slightly. One scoop could be anywhere from 1-4 Tablespoons depending on the brad. I typically use IdealRaw, which is about 25 grams per scoop (so about 2 Tablespoons).

    1. Ahh yay!! So glad this recipe is a hit. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment + star rating, James. I so appreciate it. 🙂

    Great pancake recipe, so fluffy! I love it because it doesn’t even need a blender or eggs! Took me 15 min from start to finish. I followed the cooking instructions but felt it needed longer (3-4 min each side) at low heat to fully cook inside w/o burning. Next time, I’ll make double the recipe for leftovers 🙂 Next recipe… protein blueberry muffins!

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed these pancakes, Corin!! Thanks for coming back to leave a review. I appreciate it!
