Who’s ready for the best pancakes ever?! They’re in the top ten in my personal opinion. Now, you can make adjustments…because maybe you want yours fluffier…not as thick…whatever. But this is my personal Oreo Protein Pancake recipe, and I know there are a million that are similar. I whipped this together myself, so if it sounds familiar, that’s because usually all pancakes have the same base of ingredients 😉
Since I use cacao, I only put 1/2 tsp. in mine…it turned out perfectly for me. In all of my protein pancakes, I always use whole wheat flour.
We believe in 1% milk at our house! Skim…I do on rare occasions. I don’t really need to use skim ever. Vanilla Greek yogurt is about my favorite thing in the whole world so you will see that in my recipes a lot! And I recommend purchasing Whey Protein Isolate ONLY. Why Isolate is healthier for you than if you just get Whey Protein Concentrate. Check the ingredients and get the isolate. Mine above is Soy Protein which only contains isolate 🙂 I love it! I always get vanilla and add in cacao if I want it!
Oreo Protein Pancakes
- 3/4-1 scoop vanilla whey protein isolate
- 3/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. cacao
- 4 tbsp. milk (water as needed)
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. sugar (more or less depending on your preferences)
- optional tablespoon of Greek yogurt for in pancake batter (Greek yogurt in pancakes makes them doughier, so this depends on preferences)
- 2 tbsp vanilla Greek yogurt for filling
And that’s really all you need! Crazy right?! Combine all your dry ingredients: protein, baking soda, cacao, flour, sugar. Mix and combine well. Then add in your yogurt if you want it as well as milk. Water is dependent on how thick or thin you want your pancakes!
Lightly spray your pan, turn on stove to medium-high, and make your pancakes. When they’re done, put one on the plate, plop 2 tablespoons or more of Greek yogurt (which is so good for you, so go crazy if you want) and then plop the other pancake on top, creating a healthy pancake Oreo 🙂 My batter makes two as shown in picture below. Super healthy, crazy good, and amazing post-workout meal!
Have a great Hump Day everyone!!
