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.
