Flourless Protein Pancake Recipe


Hey POPsters!

Last night I did a quickie trip to Trader Joes and bought some new protein powder. After the Vegan Challenge, I decided to stick to non dairy powders. I tried some brown rice versions recently and last night bought the Vanilla soy powder. I like how it tastes more bready than proteiny if you know what I mean. It makes the pancakes easier to use as “sandwich bread” if I ever wanted them savory!

So here is a new protein pancake recipe that I am loving! Try it out! It is not sweet though, so you’ll want to add some type of topping.


– 1 scoop vanilla flavoured soy protein powder from trader joes

– 1/4 cup egg whites

– 1 tbs psyllium husk (get at trader joes)

– 1 tbs ground flax seed

– about 1/4 cup or a little more of unsweetened almond milk


  • Mix all together and grease pan lightly with coconut oil. EVOO is ok too.
  • Make pancakes as you would regular ones! Flip after about 30 sec on medium to low heat!
  • For syrup I just microwaved some regular strawberry jam with a bit of water and drizzled! You could also use agave nectar, peanut butter, or just top with fruit!

NUTRITION FACTS for the total recipe or 1 serving without topping: 151 cals, 5g fat, 10g carbs, 20g protein.

BTW, I can totes down 2 servings of this no problemo. SO GOOD! Addicted!!!!

Train hard today guys! Summer is here! Please kick it up a notch. You create your own destinies and you can make all of your dreams come true. Just be focused, be driven, and want it BADLY.

<3 Cassey

    Does 1 serving mean 1 pancake?

  3. Keys says:

    Trying this tomorrow.

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell

    Omg Cassie this is amazing. Thank you. I couldn’t get the psyllium, to used ground oats instead. And topped my pancakes with 1/4 an apple, tbsp of feta & tbsp of frozen raspberries. Sweetened with a little honey if needed 🙂

  6. Akansha says:

    About to make these on a Friday night! Yum, thanks for sharing Cassey!

  7. Elena says:

    Just made these! So good! I used hemp protein so they were green 🙂 Kinda weird but good! I used red plum jam for the topping. Yum! Thanks for the great recipes

  8. Valerie says:


    I was just wondering if it could be possible to have the recipes list back!! it was easier to surf on in the morning when I wanted something good to eat!! 🙂


  9. alexandra says:

    made these yesterday, loved them! and they cook just like pancakes 🙂

  10. Adriane says:

    Ok Cassey. I’ve tried to make these twice and they always turn out runny never fluffy. What am I doing wrong?

  11. Sally says:

    Hey Cassey! I made this according to your recipe and they turned out well, not like pancakes. The batter was reaaaally runny and they weren’t fluffy when i cooked them. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hey Cassey! I have another pancake recipe that I think you’ll like! (I stole it from dashingdish.com but I altered it a little.)

    1 TBS Plain/Vanilla Protein Powder
    2 TBS Plain low fat/fat free Greek Yogurt (you can also use vanilla yogurt)
    Dash of Cinnamon
    Dash of Pumpkin Spice (or ground ginger and nutmeg)
    Dash of Salt
    1/8 tsp baking powder
    1/8 Cup Egg Beaters (or half an egg white)
    1/4 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
    1/8 Cup Water
    2 Packets Stevia
    1-2 baby carrot(s), chopped (enough to make 2 TBS of chopped carrot)
    1 baby carrot grated
    (If you like nuts, you can add some walnuts, but I didn’t include that in my mix)

    1 TBS Lite Whipped Cream***
    1/8 Cup Sugar Free Syrup
    Dash of Cinnamon

    Mix all ingredients in a blender, except for the grated carrots.

    Fold in grated carrots (and walnuts)

    Spoon out 1 TBS of batter (or more if you want) and cook on a hot skillet.

    For the topping: mix all ingredients and pour over pancakes.
    ***The original recipe calls for low fat cream cheese instead of lite whipped cream, you can see the recipe below and decide which you like better.

      That sounds great! Is that the nutrition value for the whole recipe?

  13. CAITLIN says:

    how many pancakes does this make?

  14. Maggie says:

    Hey Cassey! the pancakes are so yummy.. I used strawberries for the top.. Kind a syrup.. Just adding some agave to the strawberries in the food processor.. Delicious!! But I had to do the pancakes without flax seed because my husband is allergic to them.. They turned just fine but I wonder if there are another seeds or something to use instead so the mix would not be so runny..

    1. Meryl says:

      Chia seeds work the same as flaxseeds (they make a thick gel when they’re in liquid)

  15. Kristen Niemeyer says:

    Tried these this morning and they were so good!!! Cassey, to make the batter a bit sweet, I added a dash of cinnamon and some vanilla extract! <3

  16. sophie says:

    Yum! A couple tips:

    1/4 cup egg whites= about 1.5 eggs

    ADD SALT! I added salt the second time and the result is soo much better.

    You can replace the husk with anything, I tried ground oats first, then coconut flakes. You could also just increase the flax.

    *Also, I used mediclear protein powder which is orange flavored, and that was fine.

    I made a quick topping by simmering 3/4c blueberries with 2T water for the time it took to cook the pancakes. Super yummy and healthy syrup =)

  17. Jessica Jann says:

    OMGGGGGGGGGGG that looks so good. I cant wait to try that too!! thanks! 😀 DROOL

  18. Mandy says:

    Those look amazing, i’ll make them tomorrow, maybe throw in some oats and yogurt . I love pancakes ! And I those are healthy,too 🙂
    I have a little question, I love doing your pilates and cardio workouts and eat healthy but now it’s summer vacation and i eat out every day, sometimes more than once a day and when i come home i’m exhausted and have no energy to workout.. how can i go out, eat out and still stay healthy or at least as healthy as i can… i see your posts about eating out all the time and also you travel a lot .. do you skip workouts and eat unhealthy sometimes? Oh, and one last thing, do you think that fasting for a few days or maybe just for a day is a good way to clean and detox your body ?

  19. Ashlee says:

    That’s pretty much how I make it already! I love these pancakes!

  20. looks deeeeeeeelicious!

  21. Tisi says:

    Tried it today…with a little modification…..super health and delicious

  22. Sarah D. says:

    Oh man the timing of this post was horrible for me! I wanted so badly to make these for dinner.

  23. Mary Taylor says:

    Is there a vegan alternative?

    1. Jordan says:

      I increased the almond milk to a 1/2 cup and added a 1/2 tbs of cornstarch and of course omitted the egg white to make them vegan. They turned out very yummy with a little coconut oil and agave on top.

    2. Vidya says:


      I don’t use eggs. For every 1 egg = 1 tbs flax powder + 3 tbs water and let it soak

      and almond milk/soy milk is good

  24. julia says:

    replace physillium husk with more flaxseed?

  25. Erin says:

    Just made these!! Soooo good! I used Agave Nectar as syrup 🙂

  26. christina says:

    Thanks so much for always giving us great recipes. I struggle with food…I rarely make the right choice. You make it so easy to do that, though. <3

    1. Luan says:

      I enjoyed redanig your work! GREAT post! I looked around for this but I found you! Anyway, would you mind if I threw up a backlink from my site to your site?

  27. Jen B says:

    Thank you for buying most things from Trader Joe’s, Cassey! It’s a wonderful place!

  28. Sanne says:

    Gonna make them tomorrow as breakfast, I looove pancakes.
    btw, could you maybe make a blogpost about what you eat in a week?

  29. Krystle says:

    I want to make these, but I don’t have protein powder. Will that change things if I omit it? Any suggestions?

    1. Firah says:

      Use egg whites/substitutes/beaters instead! And cottage cheese 🙂

  30. Britt says:

    Every part of my body is sore, I already did a short weights workout today but I still want to work out ! Summers here and I have 24 pounds of post-baby weight stuck on me !!! Helllllllllllpppppp

  31. Geli5135 says:

    What would be alternatives for the psyllium husk?

    1. halil says:

      I’ve used ground flax seed and oat bran successfully as alternatives. I just substitute one in equal amounts to the psyllium husk.

  32. Nika says:

    Yumm! 🙂

  33. Amanda says:

    Amazing! Now if only those egg whites were replaced with a vegan friendly option 😉

    1. Mary Taylor says:

      Yes!! Agreed!

    2. Lucie says:

      Yes, I would love to see a vegan alternative too!

    3. Omnivore says:

      then replace them, it is so funny how vegans let us know about how they are vegan.

  34. Ilse says:

    Looks so yummy! I’ll need to buy some protein powder soon.

  35. Can you omit the psyllium husk? Or replace it with something?

    1. Sylvie says:

      I made it without, and it was fine. I think that’s just for nutritional benefits.
