Super Easy Five Ingredient Low Carb Protein Pancakes

Feb 7, 2018 | Food & Recipes

Whoa that title is a mouthful but completely true to describe these protein pancakes. Now, I would like to preface this recipe by saying that I am by no means a great cook or even a great creator of recipes BUT one thing I am is lazy and this is definitely a lazy person’s recipe.

This recipe is great if you are dieting and craving pancakes – and they are actually pretty good. I have made a lot of different protein pancakes in the past by just mixing ingredients ‘willy nilly’ and some have turned out pretty bad. But these ones are gooood!


  • 1 heaped scoop protein powder (I use Bulk Nutrients Protein Matrix Plus, it’s tasty and cheap)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 vanilla extract
  • cinnamon to taste
  • water for consistency (Ok I lied, it’s 6 ingredients including water, sue me)

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and cook as you would normally cook pancakes and BOOM! You can top with anything you desire. I usually go with fruit and low sugar maple syrup, it’s always a winner!
