  • 3 Large Whole Eggs
  • 2 Ounces Milk Substitute - or Milk
  • 1 Scoop Protein Powder - Your Choice Flavor
  • 2 Tablespoons Sweetener - I like Erythritol
  • ½ Cup Pancake Mix - or Make Your Own


Cake Pan Method

  • Take out a bowl
  • Add into it your 3 Large Egg Yolks (keep your Egg Whites off to the side), Milk Substitute, Protein Powder, Sweetener, and Pancake Mix
  • Mix everything up until smooth
  • Use a whisk or hand mixer and beat your Egg Whites for a couple minutes or until they can shape waves without crashing (stiff peaks some would say!)
  • Add your Egg Whites into your other mix and lightly mix them in
  • Take out a cake pan or multiple, coat it/them with some non-stick cooking spray, and evenly distribute your mix
  • Bake your Japanese Pancakes on 325F/162C for around 20 minutes (remove them with a little jiggle left so they don’t overcook)

Stovetop Method

  • Take out a stovetop pan that has a lid, turn your burner on low heat, and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray
  • Pour some of your mix in once it heats up and cover your pan
  • After 1-2 minutes remove your cover and add a little bit more mix on top
  • Cover and repeat the process one more time
  • Flip your pancake over, cover it again, and let it took for a couple minutes



LOW HEAT if you're making them on the stovetop! Slow and steady wins this race!
Add a little water inside your stovetop pan while they cook and they'll be sure to hold moisture!
Change up the flavor with your protein powder!
