High-Protein Blueberry Pancakes

It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I don’t fully disagree with this notion. A good breakfast can set you up for an entire day of healthy eating (not to mention, make you feel like you can take on the world). Lately, my go-to breakfast has been high-protein blueberry pancakes.

And when I say high-protein, I mean HIGH PROTEIN. These puppies provide a whopping 36 grams per serving, which will help reduce mid-morning cravings and keep you full until lunch.

Want to save precious time in the mornings? Multiply this recipe by 5 and cook up enough high-protein blueberry pancakes for a week’s worth of breakfasts.


High-Protein Blueberry Pancakes

Yields: 1 serving
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup liquid egg whites (about 4 eggs)
  • 1 scoop (25g) vanilla whey protein powder (we like Ascent)
  • 1/2 banana, mashed
  • almond milk as needed to thin batter
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen (no sugar added) blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil

Directions:

Whisk together the egg whites and protein powder.

Stir in the mashed banana and add the blueberries. If the pancake mixture seems too thick, add a splash of almond milk to thin it.

Heat the coconut oil in a pan to low-medium. Pour in the pancake mixture and cook until little bubbles form (about 5 minutes).

Make sure the pancake has set enough before you try flipping it, then flip over. Cook the pancake for another 2-3 minutes.  

You can also make 3 small pancakes instead of 1 large.

Serve with your favorite toppings.
