Every once in a while you’ll stumble upon a recipe so good that you just have to bookmark it. This high-protein pancakes recipe is one of those recipes. Not only do these high-protein pancakes taste great, but 1 batch packs a whopping 88 grams of muscle-building satisfaction!


High-Protein Pancakes Recipe

(Feeds 2 Hungry Beasts)


  • 5 egg whites + 1 whole egg (or 1 cup of egg whites)
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of uncooked oatmeal
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 2 scoops of protein powder (whey, casein, or a 1:1 ratio of both)

Extras (optional):

  • 2 teaspoons of peanut (or almond) butter
  • Dried/fresh-fruit topping (raisins, craisins, blueberries, etc.)
  • Maple syrup (sugar-free), Jelly, Jam, or Honey


  1. Begin by adding 5 egg whites (separating the egg whites from the yolk) and 1 whole egg to your blender.
  2. Next, add the milk, and start blending on the lowest setting.
  3. While blending, add the vanilla extract and cinnamon. (If you wish to add peanut or almond butter, do so during this step).
  4. Add the uncooked oatmeal and turn the dial up to medium-high on the blender.
  5. Lastly, add your two scoops of protein.

***At this point, your batch should look like a standard batch of pancake batter***


  1. Set your stove to medium-low.
  2. Pre-heat a small/medium frying pan for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Spray down with some non-stick cooking spray (i.e. Pam)
  4. Depending on the size of pancakes you wish to make, pour out approximately 1/3 – 1/2 cup of the mix into the frying pan.
  5. Allow the pancake to sit for 1-1.5 minutes before flipping.
  6. Let the other side cook for 1.5 to 2 minutes before removing from frying pan.
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 until batch is finished.

Tip: This high-protein pancakes recipe is great for both pre and post-workout replenishment. I like to keep a stack in the fridge ready to nuke and consume after training.
