Protein Pancakes are a great high protein option and great way to mix up your breakfast!
The internet is awash with recipes, using cottage cheese, oats, eggs, but this is a simple effective recipes that we’ve used for years.
The fats in this pancake come from the use of an egg and that we cook them in coconut oil.
The carbohydrate comes from the banana, berries and fat free yoghurt and the protein comes from quality whey, egg and yoghurt used to top it all off!

Ingredients for Mix
- 1 scoop (30g) of your favourite whey protein*
- 1 medium egg
- 100g egg whites
- 1 just, or just under-ripe banana approx 120g
- 5g Coconut oil to cook.
- 50g Defrosted frozen forest fruits / berries

How To Prepare
Protein pancakes are simple! but you do need a good, non-stick pan, or else you’re going to make a burnt mess!
Oil your pan well with the coconut oil, blend up the pancake ingredients (minis the toppings) and blitz until the mix starts to fluff up a little.
Get the pan nice and hot and pour in a small amount of your batter, allowing it to cook before flipping – you’ll find that unlike normal pancakes, protein pancakes seem to cook slightly more brown, this is simply because of the egg and banana mix, but they will still taste fine!
A smaller pan is easier to use as you can make a slightly thicker pancake!
Once your pancakes are cooked, stack em’ high and top with your yoghurt and berries and eat HOT!
