Protein Pancakes (Low Carb)
Pancakes for breakfast. YUM.
This recipe for these protein pancakes is so delicious and satisfying. Easy to make and even easier to eat!!
I love a healthy pancake recipe any day because I can’t always get away with bragging about eating pancakes for breakfast… until now of course!
These pancakes have a surprise ingredient that help make it higher in protein without contributing to extra carbs or sugar intake.
The protein in these pancakes comes from not only eggs, but peas!!
Yes, have you heard of Pea Protein Powder? I’ve actually been using Terrasoul’s Pea Protein Powder for almost a year and never even thought to add them into my pancakes recipes until now. The best part is, you can’t even taste the difference!
I got this recipe from Evolve Training Systems Instagram Page

These pancakes are super moist and fluffy and are a perfect choice for breakfast. These are perfect for serving to kids for breakfast, and adults as well! Include these pancakes in your weekly meal prep to warm and eat throughout the week, or make them in under 10 minutes for breakfast. I love the amount of nutrients in these pancakes from the bananas, eggs and pea protein powder- they are packed with potassium, calcium, iron, and Vitamin B2. Other benefits of pea protein is that they are full of Lysine, which helps control blood sugars. Pea protein also builds muscle strength and is easy to digest.
1 Tablespoon Whole Wheat Flour
1-2 Tablespoons Pea Protein Powder (I love Terrasoul brand)
- Mix all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Multiply the recipe 2-3X for more pancakes or for meal prepping. (I like to mash the bananas in the bowl first with a fork)
- Heat a cooking pan on medium to low heat. Coat with coconut oil, olive oil, or butter (not margarine or cooking spray).
- Scoop out 1/4 cup of batter and pour into heated pan.
- Cook the pancake for 1-2 minutes until firm, flip over and cook for 30 seconds until browned on both sides.
- Top pancakes with optional: jam, peanut butter, maple syrup. Enjoy!
