Protein Pancakes – Only 4 Ingredients! A protein packed stack of pancakes that have no oats, no bananas, no blender needed, and they're gluten free, keto and low carb!

I was on the hunt for a Protein Pancakes recipe but I wasn’t having much success.  I found that they mostly included oats or bananas or both…and you needed to use a blender!  Bananas and oats are not my ideal sources of protein so I went to work making a stack of protein pancakes that were easy to make without a blender, gluten free, and are keto!

Speaking of low carb breakfast, have you tried my Keto Breakfast sandwich?  Amazing!

These protein pancakes are so stupid easy and simple, you are going to be making them every week as part of your meal prep.  If you have time to sit down and eat a stack of pancakes for breakfast, you should definitely give these a try.

I have a recipe for Protein Pudding that uses protein powder as well.

So the few ingredients you need for these easy protein pancakes are:

  • protein powder
  • eggs
  • water or almond milk
  • baking powder

I mixed all of those ingredients together with a whisk to form my batter.

I might sneak some chocolate chips into this keto pancake batter next time.

I got my skillet hot on the stove while I was getting my batter ready because it comes together so fast.  I used a large non-stick skillet and then I used cooking spray because I do not want these to stick!

I love how these protein pancakes don’t need a blender.  I love my blender, but I hate pulling it out for some reason…haha!

I actually do have another keto pancake recipe that requires a blender…so I’m not anti-blender!

The protein powder I use is Vanilla Premiere Protein Powder.  I have also heard that Quest protein powder works really well.  I would look for one with the lowest amount of carbs, preferably sweetened with stevia.

I used a 1/3 cup measuring cup for the perfect sized pancakes!

These protein pancakes look like they are ready to flip!

My batter usually makes 6-8 pancakes, which is perfect for 2 people, or you can save half of the pancakes in the refrigerator for the next day.

I served mine with butter, sugar free maple syrup, and a few sugar free chocolate chips.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place a non-stick skillet on the stove over medium heat.  Spray with cooking spray or use butter or coconut oil and let melt.  
  • Mix the eggs, protein powder, and baking powder and water in a large bowl.
  • Using a 1/3 cup measure, pour out the batter into the skillet.  I was able to make 3 at a time.  They are ready to flip when bubble start to form on the top.
  • Serve with butter, sugar free syrup, and chocolate chips.

Notes

Nutrition per serving if using Premiere Protein Powder: 252 calories / 8g fat / 8g carbs / 2g fiber / 36g protein
 
  • You can try this with other protein powders but I cannot guarantee it will work.  I have heard that Quest protein powder also works well for protein recipes.  It really needs to be a protein powder that tastes good on it's own!

    These were so easy and delicious! I used one scoop vanilla Shakeology and 2 scoops Vital Proteins Unflavored collagen. Added a dash of cinnamon and used Ripple unsweetened vanilla pea “milk”!!

  1. Hi! Is this 252 cals per pancake? Or is this for the entire batch? Thanks!

    I tried this with vega plant based protein and greens powder that was berry flavored, Ahmad to add Moreno water to it, but they turned out DELICIOUS. Thank you

    I used Vega vanilla protein (plant based). Mine were a bit thicker than the picture looks probably since using a different protein powder, but I didn’t mind! I was thinking I could try another tbsp of water next time. I’m newly diagnosed as gestational diabetes, so I’m happy I have these to get me through! Most recipes had bananas & oats which are blood sugar no-no’s (for me!) Looking forward to adding some variations (cinnamon) Thank you! Now I just need to find a good SF syrup!

    I’m not sure what happened but these tasted awful 😫 but the texture was the closest to real pancakes I’ve seen from a keto pancake recipe before… maybe it was the protein powder I used? I’ll try again for sure! Love your recipes! Thank you for experimenting in your kitchen so I don’t have too!!

      Yeah, if your protein powder is not tasty, your pancakes are not going to be good.

    My husband made these for me today using a Quest vanilla. They are so good! Next time I may add some lemon zest and blueberries.
