THREE INGREDIENT Protein Pancakes! Bananas, eggs, protein powder. Done 🙂 Which is why I call the, The Easiest Protein Pancakes.
These shock me every time I make them because the ingredients are so simple. I wouldn’t compare them to classic style pancakes in terms of being super fluffy, but they honestly taste delicious! I am always looking for more way to get protein in my diet since I’m not a huge meat eater. These have double the protein from the eggs and protein powder; plus you can always top with nut butter instead of maple syrup.
The taste will also vary depending on the brand of protein you use. I love Nuzest brand because the ingredients are super clean!
The Easiest Protein Pancakes
- 2 bananas
- 2 eggs
- 3 scoops of vanilla protein (I love Nuzest!)
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- Add the banana to a blender and blend on low until broken down (not completely smooth).
- Add the egg, protein powder, and cinnamon and blend on low until smooth.
- Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low (I find it sticks to stainless steel!)
- Spray the pan with olive oil and then add 1/4 cup of the batter.
- When the pancake starts to bubble flip over.
- Repeat with the rest of the batter.
- Top with pure maple syrup!
- The taste and consistency will vary depending on the protein powder brand!

For Your Protein Pancakes
I’ll put these to the “aria” test and report back 😉
Haha girlfriend knows her pancakes 😉
Easy is right! These sound perfect for the weekend!
Wow, this is so simple! Looks great!
Simple and delicious we use to make pancakes like this all the time and haven’t in awhile. Luckily I finally have some nice ripe extra bananas so I’m going to have to whip these up!
I love me an easy protein pancake recipe. Looking forward to adding them into my repertoire!
These sounds awesome! And so easy to make!
I love pancakes! Throwing in some protein is a great idea! These sound delicious!
Hey Alyssa and Maria!
I tried this dish and true to what you said, no guilt was felt after eating 3 pieces of this for breakfast. well actually, I am saying to myself that i can probably eat this one the whole day, as pancakes are really flexible with taste (just add berries for toppings or change the drizzle from maple to honey) and then you have something to look forward to everyday!
Thanks for sharing this. totally a protein source that comes in handy,
So glad you liked it Samantha and yes you can do it a million different ways!
Made these and i cant seem to flip them without batter crunbling
Hi Ari, it could be the type of protein you used! Or if the banana wasn’t ripe enough/big enough. I’ll make these again and try and get the banana measurementsa bit more exact for you. Thanks for the feedback!
