If I’m not eating oatmeal or French Toast in the morning, you can count on a big stack of fluffy pancakes being served up (with my coffee of course)!  I remember when I first started my fitness journey, I literally ate pancakes for at least a month straight.  I ate them in the morning, in the afternoon, at night before bed.  They never got old.  I came up with all kinds of different flavor combinations that were great, but in all honesty, you can’t ever go wrong with old classics.  Nothing beats sweet simple flavors.

Today, I thought I would share my basic pancake recipe.  Tell me these guys don’t look perfect?  Nutrient dense, no added refined sugar, fluffy, moist, and will certainly keep you going strong for the day!

It really doesn’t get much better than that… well, unless you add peanut butter in somewhere because well, peanut butter makes everything better… but that’s for another day!

This recipe is SO macro friendly and you can easily adjust to fit your own nutritional needs.  Less protein powder (will need less almond milk, more oats/carbs (more almond milk), add some fat in by mixing the topping with almond butter or chopped nuts right on top… really easy to change things around!  Also, these hold up great if you wanted to make batches for meal prep.  Simply cook and store in the refrigerator or freezer.  Delicious, easy, and amazing breakfast for any day of the week!  Not a fan of pancakes and you prefer waffles?  No problem.  You can make either!

Here is the basic recipe for these:

    Thanks so much for this recipe and the inspiration! I made these on Saturday, and they were by far the BEST protein pancakes I’ve ever had. I even ordered some Trutein because of you – can’t wait for it to get here! I, too, am a thirty-something mother of 2 who’s just ready to look good in AND out of clothes. I’ve always been a proponent of heavy lifting and eating well, and coming across your Instagram has given me the kick in the pants I needed to get back on track. Much love!

    Honestly, these are THE best protein pancakes I have encountered. I stumbled on your page a few months back, and have been using this recipe since. After my 100th time of making it today, I decided to leave a comment to let you know how awesome you are for coming up with this recipe. Thank you so so much.

    These look great! Quick question about the macros listed here…do they include the maple syrup or the protein topping?

    Anyway to find out what the sugar levels are per serving? This looks really good, but I’m diabetic & have to be super careful of my sugar intake! Thanks!

      Hi Kim! Sugar is roughly under 4 grams or so… going to depend on the amount of fruit/what fruit you use though!

    Hi, This sounds amazing! I have a question though… Can you make them vegan by replacing the eggs with more apple sauce or something else as a binder? Thanks.

    They good delicious. They are listed as Vegan but they have eggs in them. It may have been a simple oversight.

    Hi,

    I made these this morning and they were amazing! But when I input all the details into my fitness pal, the calorie count is 610?! Is that right?
