protein pancake

These are awesome, homemade alternatives to your average pancake mix. Filled with all kinds of gutloving goodness, including eggs, rolled oats, and pumpkin (which is high in fiber and helps with satiety), protein pancakes are easy to make, and great for you – and the kids! A dash of collagen powder in the mix adds even more health benefits, and using ingredients like coconut oil, raw honey, and plantains helps satisfy your sweet tooth without all that processed sugar.

Author: Nourishing Lab
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil, plus additional for the pan
  • 2 Tbsp. Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2.5 Tbsp. Almond Flour
  • 1 Tbsp. Collagen Powder
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Milk
  • 5 Tbsp. Rolled Oats
  • 5 Tbsp. Plantain, chopped
  1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Allow the batter to rest for 2 minutes.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add about 1 tsp. Coconut oil. Once hot, add a small amount of batter to the center of the pan in a circle about 3-4” wide. Once the outside of the pancake has bubbles all over it and there are a few bubbles in the middle of the pancake, carefully flip the pancake over and cook until the pancake is cooked through.
  3. Remove the pancake from the pan and add an additional ½ or 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Repeat by pouring 2-3 pancakes, depending on the size of the pan.
  4. Reduce the heat down to around medium-low if the pancakes are cooking too quickly on the outside without being cooked all the way on the inside yet. After each back, add a small amount of additional oil if needed – I only needed to oil to every other batch of pancakes.
  5. Once the pancakes are all prepared, top with your favorite syrup, honey, pumpkin seeds, blueberries, or any other toppings you enjoy!
