How to make protein pancakes
There are SO many ways that you can make protein pancakes! You could add:
- Protein powder
- Cottage cheese
- Egg whites
- Chickpeas (don’t know it till you try brownie vegan pancakes with cookie dough swirl)
- Peanut butter (microwave peanut protein pancakes, I’m lookin’ at you!)
- Greek yogurt
We’re opting for vanilla Greek yogurt because it adds this level of creaminess, fluffiness and vanilla-flavored YUMMINESS to these MEGA THICK, golden-brown stacks of breakfast BLISS.
Just take a moment to ogle the THICKNESS of these pancakes with me. This is a REAL, unedited photos my friends. CANNOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP.
We’re talking chewy, sweet apples with bursts of spicy cinnamon and ginger in ever bite, with a VRY heavy-handed pile of crispy-crunchy-coconut-sugar-sweet oatmeal crumble and a PUDDLE of maple syrup.
‘Member how I confessed my weird sugar-on-pancake-eating life scenario in the gluten free paleo sweet potato pancakes? THESE GOT ME OVER THAT.
Welcoming my maple-syrup-Canadian-self back into my own life with OPEN ARMS.
STACK GOALS internet friends. I hope that you have set these for yourself.
‘Cause partaking in an apple crisp pancake situation is about to equal MASTERY of your breakfast-eating-life.

For the crisp:
For the pancakes:
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
- In a medium bowl, mix the oats, oat flour and coconut sugar for the crumble. Stir in the melted butter until crumbly.
- Spread in a single layer on the prepared pan and bake until golden brown, about 7-8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes - the crumbles will firm and crisp up a lot once cool!
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the oat flour, monkfruit, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and ginger. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolks and Greek yogurt.
- Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until moistened - don't over mix. Gently fold in the apples.
- Preheat your grill to medium heat (or 350 degrees) and rub with butter. Drop the batter by 1/3 cup scoops, spreading out slightly on the griddle. Cook until the edges are set and bubbles begin to burst in the tops, about 4-6 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 4-6 minutes until browned.
- Serve with maple syrup and the crisp topping and DEVOUR!
