Clean Eating Protein Pancakes

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 16 pancakes


  • 1 cup oats ground to a powder
  • 1 1/2 cups 100% whole wheat flour see notes for gluten free options
  • 1 cup whey protein isolate see notes for dairy free and vegan options
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk powder see notes for dairy free and vegan options
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 3 Tbsp The Neat Egg® or 3 eggs' worth of any powdered egg substitute


Dry Mix and Pancakes

  • Mix all ingredients. Store in an airtight container.
  • To make into pancakes, mix all of the dry mix with 1 3/4 cup water. Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened; for fluffy pancakes, do not over mix. Drop by 1/3 cups full onto a hot greased griddle or skillet. Cook 2-3 min or until bubbles slow and edges appear dry. Flip cakes, and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute on the second side.

To Freeze

  • To freeze, make pancakes as directed above. Place parchment between each pancake, and freeze in a large zip top plastic bag. To reheat after freezing, microwave on "defrost" setting or low power for 1-2 minutes.


For dairy free or vegan, use soy protein isolate in place of the whey protein isolate, and soy milk powder (unsweetened) in place of the buttermilk powder, or omit buttermilk powder and reconstitute using dairy-free milk rather than water.  For gluten free, use brown rice powder in place of the whole wheat flour.
These are also great for toddlers who enjoy breads and bread-like foods but are stubborn about proteins.
