• 1 cup all-purpose flour (or whole wheat flour for a healthier option)
  • 2 scoops (about 1/2 cup) of your favourite protein powder (vanilla or unflavoured work well)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (optional for sweetness)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking spray or a little butter for greasing the pan

Optional Toppings:

  • Fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries)
  • Sliced bananas
  • Chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, or pecans)
  • Greek yogurt
  • Honey or maple syrup


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, honey, maple syrup (if using), and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Avoid overmixing to keep the pancakes light and fluffy.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease the surface with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.
  5. Pour about 1/4 cup of the pancake batter onto the hot skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges start to look set, about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and keep warm while you cook the remaining batter.
  8. Serve the protein powder pancakes with your favourite toppings. Fresh berries, sliced bananas, chopped nuts, Greek yogurt, and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup make excellent choices.

Enjoy your delicious and protein-packed pancakes as a nutritious and satisfying breakfast or post-workout treat!
