This year I wanted to mix it up a bit with my workouts and focus more on strength. As I’ve gotten more into weightlifting, I’ve been upping my protein intake a bit too. Gotta keep my body fueled to build muscle!
It didn’t take me long to realize that breakfast is the meal I’m kinda slacking on when it comes to protein. I pretty much hit the ground running when I wake up, which means I need something quick and easy to make. I also get bored with protein shakes after like one day, so I knew I needed to come up with an easy way to jumpstart my protein intake.
And you guys… JACKPOT.
You might be looking at this like, “Hmm okay. Another pancake recipe?” But wait – this is NOT your average pancake recipe. These are 5-Ingredient High Protein Pancakes. Annnnd they’re amazing.
These always come out suuuper thick and fluffy, with a warm cinnamon flavor. And they are PERFECT for stacking, which is important.
They’re insanely quick to throw together, and it’s easy to double the recipe to save time on busy mornings too. Or to just have some on hand for a quick, protein-packed snack. Just in case 😉
Okay… ready to see how to make them?!

Here’s Your 5-Ingredient Protein Pancake Recipe!
2 scoops vegan protein powder
1/3 c liquid egg whites
1 tsp baking powder
Dash of cinnamon
1 TBS almond milk (or more if your batter is dry)
- Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir until combined. If the batter seems thick, add a little almond milk!
- Heat a pan over medium heat and spray with a little cooking spray or coconut oil.
- Spoon pancake batter onto your pan (smaller pancakes will be easier to work with) and cook for a few minutes on each side.
- Stack em up! I like to serve my protein pancakes with some fresh fruit and sugar-free syrup. YUMMM.
You ready that right – 30 GRAMS of protein! And they’re so easy and delicious.

What Vegan protein powder do you recommend my boyfriend and I are going Plant based and we want to do the pancakes?
Trying these today but I have some queries about the egg yolks if we have no liquid egg whites. Can I use them and if not are there any recipes you would use them in?
Where should I ask “Dear Cassey” questions? Please someone reply. I really need to ask some questions.
You can comment on any of the Dear Cassey posts and I’ll keep an eye out for it!! <3
What vegan protein powder do you use? Several of us have asked in these comments and are awaiting response. Thank you 🙂
Linda Sun recommends PEScience when she makes protein pancakes. https://www.instagram.com/p/CDMdl38lxJq/
It looks delicious ! 😍 which vegan protein powder do you use? I’ve tried some and they didn’t taste that good …
What kind of protein powder do you use? I have issues finding ones that work or taste good
Can I make these vegan by using a “flax egg” instead (1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds mixed with 2 tablespoons water)? These sound cool and I’d love to tweak the recipe to work for me!
Is the nutritional info for all five pancakes or just one pancake at a time?
For the full recipe!
All 5! Or however many you end up making with the listed ingredients 🙂
How much would 2 scoops of protein powder be in tablespoons?
What kind of protein powder do you use?
Hey cassie, just wanted to ask what protein powder do you use, there are so many out there!
