This morning started out with a good Sunday morning breakfast…pancakes! With a little protein punch for some added staying power.
I have seriously been trying to create delicious protein pancakes for about 2 months. They always come out too yogurt-y tasting, with no flavor, a weird consistency, or just somehow not right at all. Well, today I did it…after two months of experimenting (and finally receiving my favorite protein powder in the mail!!) I came up with the most tasty protein pancake recipe yet!
Perfect Protein Pancakes
This recipe makes about 16 pancakes, so it is perfect for making on a Sunday so that you can save the rest for later in the week when you have less time!
- 2 cups of oat flour (or oats processed in a blender or food processor)
- 1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- 2 egg whites
- 4 servings of Sunwarrior protein powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2-2 cups water (just add a little bit at a time until you reach the desired consistency)
Heat a skillet on medium heat, and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until combined. Once the skillet is hot, pour 1/4 cup portions of the batter onto the pan to cook for about 1-2 minutes per side.
I topped mine with 1 tbsp almond butter and 1/4 cup blueberries…but you can top yours however you want!

This past Friday, a life friend of Brian and a sorority sister of mine (Erin) got married!! Here are some pictures of the wedding. Everything about the weekend was elegant, beautiful, and so much fun.
Congratulations Erin and Matt!! Have fun in Cancun!!
Now, Brian and I are off to the gym, church, then the grocery.
What are your Sunday plans to help prepare for the week?
