Are you a lover of pancakes like I am, but want to keep it healthy and avoid the standard Hungry Jack box recipe? Or maybe you are gluten or dairy free?! Well, you are in luck! A certain someone found this gluten-free protein pancake recipe here and decided to cook them up for me – thanks Josh! They were delicious, packed with protein, nutrients, and gave me the energy I needed to finish a grueling workout. We tweaked the recipe a little and it looked like this:

Gluten-Free Protein Pancake Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 2-3

  • 1 cup cooked gluten-free oatmeal (Uncooked oats might be good too – will try this next time)
  • 2 eggs + 5 egg whites (can also do 5 whole eggs instead of using the egg whites only)
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (optional – they are sweeter with the protein powder, but just as good without)
  • 1 sliced banana
  • 1 cup berries – strawberries were my favorite
  • 2 tbsp peanut or almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 100% maple syrup (be sure to check the label for high fructose corn syrup!)


  1. Beat the eggs together
  2. Mix oatmeal into eggs
  3. Add protein powder, peanut butter, and cinnamon
  4. Add bananas and berries to batter
  5. Place coconut oil on warm pan covering the bottom of the pan
  6. Pour batter into pan
  7. Cook on med-high heat flipping when bubbles begin to form
  8. Remove from pan and serve immediately – use maple syrup as needed
  9. Enjoy!
