High Protein Pancakes

I see a tonne of pancakes on Instagram weekly. Vegan ones, paleo ones, decadent ones, fruity ones, chocolate ones, protein powder heavy ones, you name it. Everytime I looked at the recipe though, it didn’t quite sit with the way I do things in my kitchen. The ingredients didn’t suit me.

So I finally got out of the rut of thinking that ‘pancakes take too long’ and created my own.

They take 5 minutes to make the mix, and about 2 minutes to cook per pancake. Easy!

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Low Fodmap &  Paleo Friendly. 

Serves 1 – makes 3 pancakes.


1/4 cup almond milk – I use Inside Out Unsweetened

2 large eggs

1/4 cup almond meal

1 tbsp vanilla protein powder – I used a pea/brown rice blend, whey would work too.

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp maca powder (optional)


1. Combine all the ingredients together using a hand/stick blender.

2. Set a pan to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the pan if it’s not non-stick. I used a little butter. Pour 1/3 of the mix into the pan. Flip when the bottom is golden. Cook for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 minutes total.

3. Repeat with the remainder of the mix.

4. Serve warm with your favourite toppings.
