  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk or electric mixer
  • Spatula
  • Non-stick skillet or griddle


  • 2 Big eggs
  • ½ cup Sour cream or full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 Servings of your favorite protein powder
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • Some cooking spray butter, or coconut oil for the pan


  • Heat up a non-stick pan on medium heat and grease it with cooking spray, butter, or coconut oil.
  • Mix the eggs, protein powder, and baking powder in a big bowl.
  • Stir in the sour cream or Greek yogurt until everything’s mixed up.
  • Use a ¼ cup to pour the batter onto the pan. You can fit about 3 pancakes at once. Flip them when you see bubbles on top and the edges are set.
  • Serve them with butter, sugar-free syrup, and whatever toppings you like, such as chocolate chips or blueberries.


  • Instead of water or almond milk, we use sour cream or Greek yoghurt to keep the pancakes moist.
  • If you only want one serving, you can easily cut the recipe in half.
  • No egg whites? No worries! Just use whole eggs instead. Around 3 to 4 eggs will replace 1/2 cup of egg whites. Easy fix!

How Can I Make My Protein Pancakes Taste Better?

How Can I Make My Protein Pancakes Taste Better?

Try adding some vanilla extract and a bit of sweetener to the batter if you’re using plain protein powder. It makes them tastier!

Why Are My Protein Pancakes Dry?

Protein powder can dry things out when you cook with it. Mixing the protein powder with almond flour or adding Greek yoghurt to the batter can help keep it moist. And make sure not to cook them for too long!

Are Protein Pancakes the Same as Regular Ones?

Nope, they’re a bit different. They’re smaller and thinner. If you want something more like regular pancakes, you might want to try almond flour pancakes instead.
