Dairy-Free Protein Powder Pancakes

Submitted by: FITGIRL15
Dairy-Free Protein Powder Pancakes

Introduction

These taste quite good--and only 8 grams of carbs per pancake!

(A great compliment to a competition diet because they are high in protein and low in carbs!)

    OMG - These were AWESOME! I used chocolate protein powder and used a little bit of vanilla instead of almond extract, and these were AMAZING. It was like I was cheating!!! It was hard for me to not eat the whole batch! I ate two, then an hour later I ate a third! What an excellent start to my day! - 2/27/09

    These were actually DELICIOUS! I have tried to make a variety of diet-version favourites, and thoroughly despised them all, thinking "who are they kidding, calling this a substitute!!!" but these were amazing. I recommend making them big like crepes, and eat with fresh fruit! also - blenderize mix! - 6/16/09

    This was simple and easy to make. But I get thinking pancakes I get a taste for some syrup. So I used some sugar free maple syrup. It was just terrific! - 7/25/09

    I made this for breakfast this morning. I used Chocolate protein powder. They were good, but better when I added almond butter. I usually need a snack around 9:30 but its 10:30 and I'm not hungry yet :) Good recipe!!! - 2/25/10

    Ok. Maybe it was the vanilla protein powder I used. That is all I could taste. If I make again, I will try with less protein powder and blend everything first. - 8/21/09

    Mine were't the greatest the first attempt either... I've got it down to a science now though! LOL I have these for breakfast every morning!

    Try, Try again! :) Maybe try adding some cocoa powder or some artifical flavoring... Or even some blueberries! So many ways to spice it up! ;)

    These were ok - I made them exactly as recipe calls for and they were very dense and didn't taste much like pancakes. The stuff I put on them helped but alone they were pretty bland. - 10/21/08

    Reply from FITGIRL15 (10/21/08)
    If they were really dense, you need to add more warm water to the oats when you make them (this thins out the batter a lot!)
    The taste of the batter depends on the flavor of protein powder you use.

    I work VERY early AM hours, and usually don't have much time in the morning. I can fix these on the weekend and refrigerate/freeze for the week. They will work out nicely. I used 1/4 cup water for a thicker consistency, and Nestle's Cocoa powder (didn't have protein powder). THANKS FitGirl15. - 1/17/10

    Love it! I added a tbsp of Splenda brown sugar, some ground flax seed and an extra egg. Can't believe they actually look like pancakes & taste great. I was concerned I would taste the protien powder. Guess the brown sugar and almond extract helped to mask the powder taste. Thanks for posting! - 1/1/11

    FABULOUS!!! I made a batch tonight to try. Put the remaining (and it was a stuggle!!) in the fridge for tomorrow. Eager to see how they reheat. Didn't need any type of butter or syrup - seems like a great on the run breakfast! I'm hiding them from the kids, they were THAT good! - 7/13/10

    Just made these for the first time this morning - UNBELIEVABLY satisfying! Followed the recipe and added the almond extract. I'm considering adding a dash of sweetener next time, but topping these off with a thin layer of almond butter and some berries on the side got my day off to a great start! - 1/5/11

  • I tried these because of the nutrient ratios and because it is a small batch. I was quite happy with them. They taste a lot like the protein powder, which I don't really like, but two pancakes and a small piece of fruit kept me feeling full until lunch. - 11/2/14

  • I don't like pancakes. But.... when I saw this recipe, I decided to try it. I used steel cut oats, walnut extract instead of almond, soy protein powder, added 1 tbsp of cocoa, cinnamon, Splenda and a touch of salt. I also used a little more water, and the result was amazing! I will make it again! - 7/3/13

  • Yummo! I used MetRx vanilla protein powder and added about 1/4 C water after adding the protein powder-egg white mixture to the oatmeal. Having mine with SF maple syrup mixed into blueberries. My calc brings these to only 274 cal/serving, so I'm eating the whole batch! - 6/24/13

  • The taste was phenomenal, but my batter ended up very watery with a thick lump of oats. I followed the recipe exacIy.

  • The key seems to be to let the pan get warmed up nicely first. The first few were tossed out and by then the pan was warmed well enough to cook them like normal pancakes.
