I’m a firm believer and lover of the three main food groups: pizza, pasta and pancakes. I could quite happily just rotate the three for each meal for the rest of my life. I just feel like when a day starts with a serving of pancakes then it’s going to be a good one, which is basically my justification for rustling up this recipe literally every AM for the past month. It might seem time-heavy to have pancakes in the morning, but I can make these up in around 10 minutes. Not only do they taste amazing, but they pack a punch in the protein department too (about 35g with the ingredients I use) – awesome – and travel pretty well if you prefer eating at your desk.

PEANUT PROTEIN PANCAKES (serves one): The breakfast that feels kinda naughty, but actually packs in a serious amount of protein and gets you raring to go for the day ahead. Top with whatever you fancy – yoghurt, fruit or my personal favourite, a drizzle of Maple Syrup

You will need: 25g Oats (you can go gluten-free if you fancy), 50ml of Egg Whites (I go for the Two Chicks variety for convenience, or just throw a whole egg in), 2 Tablespoons Almond Milk (or whatever milk you fancy), 35g Protein Plus Peanut Flour (I get mine from Amazon, it’s not cheap, but the bag is MASSIVE), 1 Capful of Vanilla Extract

Optional toppings: Plain Yoghurt (I like the Aria Skyr variety and tend to use about 100g – it ups the protein!), Frozen Berries (I use about half a cup), Maple Syrup (I get mine from Amazon and use about a Tablespoon)

If you don’t fancy weighing all the pancake ingredients a 1/4 cup measuring cup is perfect to get the right amounts of the oats, egg whites and peanut flour if you’re feeling lazy. Turn on the heat under a non-stick pan (non-stick = no need for oil), then throw all your pancake ingredients into a bowl and mix. Then pour half of the mixture into the pan and cook for a couple of minutes on each side until cooked through. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. In the meantime prepare your toppings by adding some yogurt into a bowl and mixing in the maple syrup and heating up your berries for around a minute in the microwave to make a sauce (it’s seriously yum). Serve with your pancakes and you’re ready to dig in.

    Pancakes in the morning would set me up for a fantastic day, let alone protein packed ones. Will definitely be trying this out sometime! They look delicious too!

    25g of oats is nothing! This is far too low in carbs for most active people, especially those who weight train.

    I also don’t mind having these three main food all the time, they might not be the healthiest but tastiest for sure. I haven’t tried pancake with peanut flour, I wonder how different it tastes.

    Protein pancakes, absolute yes and I don’t eat meat! I had a chef come to my house recently for work and he made vegan pancakes with avocado mousse – omg it was sensational!

    Can I just make my own peanut flour in the blender? Will it be the same?

  • The Sunday Mode

    Oh wow these look amazing, I’m such a pancake lover. I’m always that one person that orders pancakes at brunch when everyone else is ordering savoury. Pizza, pasta and pancakes- that’s a motto to live by right there.

    Yum! I love making protein pancakes/waffles. Have them every day! Just as an annoying FYI (bear with me), oats ARE gluten-free. The only reason to buy them in a package that states them being gluten-free is if you’re celiac and don’t want to risk cross-contamination. :)

    do you think I can change the peanut flour to plain flour? My husband cant eat peanut but I fancy cooking this.
