Protein Pancakes - Muscle Building Low Sugar

Pancakes and fruit

Pancake day rolls around once a year, but that doesnt mean the only day of the year to have pancakes is on Shrove Tuesday. With that in mind we teamed up with our resident guest blogger to understand what makes a good pancake for him on Pancake day. But before we did, as usual we did a little research. 

According to new research by food box company Gousto, pancakes are the dish that Brits struggle the most to make.

The three main issues they face are burning them, adjusting measurements to feed the right number of people and of course, making sure the first pancake doesn’t stick to the pan.


What you need:

  • 75g Oats
  • 30g Protein Powder (I use chocolate)
  • 1 egg Yolk
  • 100ml Water
  • 1 Blender (I use a Nutri Bullet)
  • 1 Frying Pan

  • Sugar: 4g



  1. Add oats to a belnder and mix into a fine sand like texture
  2. Now add the protein powder, egg yolk & water to the blender with the oats. Blend until you get a fine texture for pancakes, be careful not to go too far.
  3. Put the mixture into the fridge and leave overnight (I have found this step leads to the pancakes being fluffier / lighter)
  4. Spray your pan with 1cal oil spray and then add your mixture (cook on a medium heat) approx 1 minute each side.

Using the quatities outlined above you should be able make 4 - 5 medium size pancakes. To serve we recommend adding toppings of your choice.


Recommended toppings:

  • Greek Yoghurt
  • Almond Butter
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
