It’s time to keep Nutella in your diet and upgrade your breakfast! These Nutella Protein Pancakes are healthy, delicious, and guaranteed to beat those hazelnut cravings. If you’re looking for a new pancake recipe that’s easy to make, this is the one to try.

To keep this recipe quick you’re going to need either a food processor or blender. If you don’t have a food processor, here’s a link to the one I’ve been using and recommend.

Add right into your food processor or blender 3 ounces of unsweetened milk substitute, 1/2 of a banana, 1 large whole egg, 1/4 cup of fat free cottage cheese, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of Nutella, 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder, 6 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1 scoop of a chocolate protein powder, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.

Don’t like cottage cheese? Don’t worry, you can’t taste it at all when added to flavorful ingredients. Cottage cheese also adds some slow digesting casein protein to the recipe!

Process or blend everything together until your Nutella protein pancakes mix is smooth.

Take out a stovetop pan or griddle, turn your burner on medium heat, and coat whatever you’re using with some non-stick cooking spray.

Pour your Nutella protein pancakes mix on once your pan or griddle heats up and cook each side of your pancake(s) for around 2-3 minutes.

Repeat until your mix is gone!

However big or small you want your pancakes is up to you. The calorie information listed below is based off the whole recipe so if the whole recipe is for you…the calories will remain the same.

Remove them from the heat and top them with some sugar free chocolate syrup or anything else you want. Let us know what healthy toppings you use in the comments below.

Level these protein pancakes up even more by topping them with our Chocolate Protein Spread recipe!

    Question. I follow your recipe exactly with the same brand name ingredients, but the batter always comes out too thick, and sometimes I would have to add more milk for the ingredients to blend. What am I doing wrong?
