Blueberry Blender Protein Pancakes

These protein packed and fibre-filled pancakes will keep you satisfied for hours! Totally plant-based and gluten-free.
Jan 14, 2021 | Joy McCarthy

Have you noticed that I've been making a lot of waffles for weekend brunches? Please know I am a pancake girl at heart - always have been, always will be. And I'm happy that my first post of 2021 is a pancake recipe! I can't believe I haven't shared a new recipe since December 16th when I shared my Cinnamon Raisin Bagels - I must have made them 5 times over the holidays!

It's been a bit busy around here because Vienna was off school for two weeks with Christmas break which was SO MUCH FUN and we just recently launched 21 Days to Joyous Health! Don't worry if you missed out on this because we will run it again in the spring because everyone has been loving it! I tell you this because this is a brand new recipe featured in 21 Days to Joyous Health and I wanted to create a recipe video out of it.

I added protein powder by Genuine Health to these pancakes to make them even more satisfying and satiating.

Protein is an important macronutrient for tissue building and repair in the body and for pretty much every cell and enzyme in the human body.

I notice that most people lack adequate protein, particularly at breakfast especially if you're just eating a bowl of cereal and running out the door or walking over to your home office desk. 

These pancakes will keep you satisfied for hours especially if you pile them high with toppings. My favourite toppings:

  •  Coconut Whipped Icing . It stays fresh in the fridge for at least 10 days so if you make a big batch, keep the leftovers. 
  •  Almond butter or coconut butter 
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Dark, real maple syrup - we Canadians know our maple syrup! Or raw honey
  • Berries

This recipe is vegan (egg-free), gluten-free, kid-approved and full of vitamins, minerals and good fat (and protein, but you already knew that!).

Here's my delicious recipe!

Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups oat flour*
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 scoop protein powder**
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (let thaw)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients, excluding coconut oil because that is the for the fry pan/skillet into a high power blender. Blitz until smooth and creamy.
  2. If you don't have a blender, you can mix by hand.
  3. Heat a frypan or skillet to medium and melt coconut oil. Pour approximately 1/4 cup pancake mix into the pan. Flip when soft bubbles begin to form on top. If the pancakes are burning too quickly, turn the temperature down and cook more slowly. Enjoy with all your favourite toppings.
  4. I topped mine with blueberries, coconut whipping cream, dark maple syrup and cinnamon.

Notes

Makes 12 Pancakes
*You can make your own oat flour by putting 3-4 cups of oats into a blender or food processor and blitzing until very fine like flour.
**I used Genuine Health organic fermented vegan protein. Use code JOYOUS20 for 20% off.
Search joyoushealth.com for the "coconut whipped icing"

I feel totally satisfied with three of these pancakes loaded up with my favourite toppings! Walker usually eats four and Vienna is satisfied with two pancakes. Since this recipe makes 12 pancakes, we always have a few leftovers to pop into the toaster the next day. 

Protein pancakes

Enjoy!

Thank you for sharing your receipe! What if we don't use or have protein powder. What substitute ingredients can we use?

Hi Joy! Excited to make these. I was just about to buy the protein powder with your code, but do you recommend the unsweetened/unflavoured or the vanilla for these pancakes? Thank you!

The link is wrong for the bagel post. FYI...

I used raspberries and the cakes initially turned out gummy. I think it's because the protein powder I have is mostly pea and rice. I used more soy milk for thinner cakes and they were great with maple syrup, bananas and more raspberries on top. Thank you!
