One of my most popular recipe posts is my chocolate protein oatmeal pancake recipe. When I first wrote this post in 2015 that was true and it is still true now that I’m updating it in 2018!! It’s something I don’t make very often but always enjoyed when I did make it.
Protein pancakes are a fun way to enjoy pancakes but still get in enough protein for a well balanced meal.
My current favorite pancake is simple and protein packed: I used Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes: Flapjack and Waffle Mix with water. It’s not fancy, but it’s delicious!
With that in mind, I decided to do a recipe roundup of protein pancakes created by other awesome bloggers! I’ve also included affiliate links to my favorite protein pancake mixes, which means if you buy them I’ll make a commission at no extra cost to you.
Hopefully you can make and enjoy these protein pancakes if you’re ever in the mood for some tasty protein packed pancakes.
