Extra Fluffy Protein Pancakes In 10 Minutes

Time is a precious resource in life, and there are few things that can’t be improved with the help of time saving tricks. On today’s episode we’re going to show you how to make protein pancakes in 10 minutes by using common pantry items like almond flour and egg whites. Let’s get started!.

The “high protein pancakes” is a recipe that has been shared on the internet, and it only takes 10 minutes to make. The high protein content of these pancakes makes them perfect for weight loss or muscle building.

Soft, fluffy and light, these protein-packed pancakes are the perfect low-carb breakfast for a quiet Sunday morning.

Is the protein powder ketonic?

Not all protein powders are created equal, but there are a lot of protein powders on the market right now that have good macros for keto. However, there are a few ingredients that are best avoided in a protein powder. So try to choose a high quality powder that will provide you with nutrients. How to choose a protein powder :

  • Start with animal protein powder. Protein pancakes work better with whey protein than with casein protein and much better than with plant protein. Vegetable proteins tend to crumble and become a dry, hard pancake.
  • Avoid low-quality sweeteners – most protein powders on the market contain either a ton of sugar or artificial sweeteners. As far as possible, avoid sweeteners such as sucralose, aspartame and acesulfame potassium. Use stevia, erythritol or monk fruit instead.
  • Check macros – This seems obvious, but you’d be surprised how often we assume that if it says keto, it’s keto. This is not always the case with protein powders, which sneak in cheap fiber, maltitol, hidden carbohydrates, etc. It is best to read the nutrition label and check the macros of all foods.

Of course, it can be very difficult to find a high-quality protein powder that meets these standards. So try to find something that covers some of these basics, the most important of which is the amount of carbohydrates.

Our favorite proteins

It’s very difficult to find proteins that meet all of our requirements, so just take advantage of what’s available! You can even try different proteins, like chocolate protein, vanilla protein powder, or cinnamon protein powder for extra flavor.

  • Isopure Vanilla Whey Protein Powder – Isopure has been around for a long time and is definitely popular in the keto community. If you use pure whey protein powder, you will get drier pancakes. For this recipe, it’s best to use an egg white mixture like the following options.
  • Quest Protein Powder – Quest is a very popular company, and for good reason. They have the tastiest products compared to other brands. We recommend cinnamon or vanilla egg whites for this recipe, they make the best protein pancakes.
  • Collagen + Whey Protein – This protein powder contains collagen and whey, making it an excellent protein blend. It is ideal for making smoothies and pancakes because it contains a blend of high-quality sweeteners such as allulose and stevia.
  • PEScience Select is an excellent protein powder for many recipes, including brownies. This protein makes light and fluffy protein pancakes and contains 24 grams of protein per scoop.

These are just a few of our favorites, but feel free to dig around to find your perfect keto protein powder.

Perfect Protein Pancakes

You can’t just eat normal protein pancakes! While this protein pancake recipe is perfect, everyone knows that pancakes should be filling!

We’ve listed all of our favorite sugar-free and keto pancake toppings to make a better list!


The type of protein doesn’t matter for this list, but your favorite blended ingredients do! Here are our favorite protein pancake mixes for ketones:

  • Blueberries – Blueberries are a classic ingredient for pancakes in restaurants and are loved by every pancake lover. They become warm, jammy and sweet in combination with the vanilla flavor.
  • Chocolate chips – If you’re making regular, fluffy keto protein pancakes, that doesn’t mean you can’t have sugar-free chocolate chips. Lily’s makes great sugar free chocolate chips that won’t spike your blood sugar.
  • Citrus Grater – Grate the zest of your favorite citrus fruits for a light and popping breakfast. We like to add lemon peel and poppy seeds to protein pancakes or cinnamon and orange peel to fall pancakes.
  • Cinnamon Pancakes – Sprinkle your keto protein pancakes with brown sugar and cinnamon, then top the finished protein pancakes with cream cheese.
  • Peanut Butter – Try adding peanut butter or peanut butter powder to these protein pancakes to get the perfect pancake for peanut butter lovers.
  • Whey protein powder is not really a blend, but rather an ingredient, but changing the flavor of the whey protein powder can make a dish more interesting. Try making protein pancakes with chocolate protein or cream cookies, you’ll be surprised how much flavor they bring.

Spices and flavours

Spices and flavors are definitely underrated when it comes to making pancakes. Banana protein pancakes? Try banana extract. Maple syrup pancakes for keto? Maple extract. Some of our favorite spices and flavors are:

  • Cinnamon is super versatile because you can use it to make carrot pancakes, cinnamon pancakes, and cinnamon rolls.
  • Nutmeg is another classic fall spice that adds a little spice to breakfast.
  • Vanilla extract – even if you already use vanilla protein powder, vanilla extract is also a great addition to flavor pancakes.
  • Raisins – as mentioned earlier, any citrus peel is great for brightening up the flavor of protein powder.

Be creative and try many different excerpts. They are low in carbohydrates and sugar, which means you get a lot of flavor in just one serving. For example, you can make banana protein pancakes without bananas, which is also diet-friendly.


The toppings are really individual, but there are some classics that we definitely use. I’ll try not to repeat myself, so pay attention to the ingredients list.

  • Berries – Adding a few berries to your protein powder pancakes is a great way to add sweetness and a low sugar flavor.
  • Nut butter – any nut butter you like is fine. We like peanut butter, almond butter, mixed nut butter, or sunflower oil for those with allergies.
  • Chocolate chips – there are many keto chocolate bars, but you can also use 100% Bakers chocolate for a richer, darker flavor.
  • Whipped cream is definitely a classic. You can buy whipped cream at the store or make it yourself. We always recommend making your own, but if you don’t have time, try a store-bought version with less sugar.
  • Keto Chocolate Spread – Are you a Nutella fan? Try Lakanto’s chocolate spread, made with real chocolate and monk fruit.
  • Greek yogurt – Low-sugar Greek yogurt can be a good option for protein powder pancakes if they seem drier. Greek yogurt also comes in a variety of flavors, so you can add even more flavor to your pancakes.

Feel free to use toppings, because everyone knows pancakes are just a bunch of toppings. If the vanilla serum seems too vanilla, it doesn’t hurt to spice it up!

All about maple syrup

If you thought we left out maple syrup among the other toppings for these easy, fluffy protein powder pancakes, you’re wrong! There are many variations of maple syrup, but like egg whites, syrup comes in different qualities.

Try to find maple syrup that uses keto sweeteners like erythritol, stevia, allulose or monk fruit. Those sweetened with sucralose, or worse, maltitol, can cause stomach upset. Our favorites:

  • Livlo syrup – sweetened with allulose and just a few ingredients
  • Lacanto syrup is one of the original keto syrups that is still a great low sugar option.
  • ChocZero is another brand of maple syrup that has been around for a long time. They come in many flavors, so you can vary your taste buds and pair them with fresh fruit.
  • Birch Benders – Made with monk fruit, this syrup is gluten free and sugar free.

If you don’t like syrup, you can also just eat the jam without butter or sugar. The best thing about this recipe is its versatility.

How to make pancakes with egg whites

Now that you know how many grams of protein and what great additions you can make, it’s time to get cooking.


To make protein pancakes, you’ll need protein powder, eggs (not egg whites), unsweetened almond milk, salt, and baking powder.

We don’t recommend using egg whites alone, as they can make the pancakes dry. If you want to use whipped egg whites, you will need to add extra fat, for example. B. Add butter or coconut oil.

Make sure your almond milk is unsweetened so you don’t add extra sugar and carbs.

Cooking pancakes with egg whites

To make this pancake recipe, whisk the eggs and milk together in a bowl.

Then add the protein powder of your choice, baking soda and salt. Beat well so that there are no lumps. Blenders are also suitable, but try not to over mix the dough. Now it’s time to add all the ingredients you want.

Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Use a quart measuring cup to pour the batter into the pan. Cook for 30-45 seconds, or until bubbly.

Flip the pancakes over and fry on the other side for 20 seconds. When the pancakes are done, place them on a plate, we made an average of 4-5 pancakes. Finish with syrup, butter, chocolate, fruit, etc. as desired.

Save this recipe for protein pancakes

We ALWAYS recommend taking a double dose of everything. Ninety percent of the time you’ll love the recipe and come back for more, so do yourself a favor and plan ahead!

This recipe is quick to make and keeps well, you can even use it for a week. Don’t forget the stuffing!


If you want to store this recipe in the refrigerator, make sure all pancakes are completely cooled. Then put the leftovers in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. After five days they can start to dry out, which nobody wants!


To freeze cooked pancakes, let them cool completely first. Next, put the pancakes in a zip-lock bag and place a sheet of baking paper between each layer. Freeze on a flat surface (such as a baking sheet) until completely set.

Warm-up steps

If reheating pancakes from the fridge, simply place them on a plate and heat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.

In the case of frozen pancakes, you can thaw them in the refrigerator and then reheat them in the microwave, or reheat them directly from the freezer. To do this, place the pancakes on a plate, spread them apart, and microwave them in 30-second intervals, flipping them after 30 seconds, until they are completely warm.
