Craving pancakes and don’t have protein powder? Try these Protein Pancakes without Powder! This easy and high protein pancake recipe is delicious, quick to make with simple ingredients, and you don’t need protein powder to make it!
You’re going to need either a blender or food processor for this one. Why? To easily mix in your rolled oats and cottage cheese. Without a blender or food processor you’ll risk having chunks/not the right texture.
Add right into your blender or food processor 4 large egg whites or 12 tablespoons of liquid egg whites, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of your choice sweetener, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/8 teaspoon of salt, and 3 tablespoons of coconut flour.
Did you know that coconut flour is cheap, packed with fiber, and makes recipes taste even better!
Blend or process everything together until your rolled oats look mixed into your protein pancakes without powder mix.
Take out a stovetop pan, turn your burner on medium heat, and let it heat up. You could also use a griddle if you have on.
Coat your pan or griddle with some non-stick cooking spray and pour some of your mix on once it heats up.
You’ll want to cook each side of your pancake(s) for 2-3 minutes. Keep in mind that the size of your pancake will change your cooking time so keep an eye on them if you made them really big or small!
Protein Pancake Topping
You can also add in or on top nuts, blueberries, chocolate chips, and so on. Think outside the box and keep your protein pancakes without powder within your macros.
Flavor tip? You can make these chocolate protein pancakes without powder by adding in 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the recipe.
That’s it, you’re done! These protein pancakes are fluffy, filling, not dry, and taste just as amazing as they look! If you like pancakes, you’re going to love these.
