The Protein Pancake…

Pancakes are a big weekend favorite here at the Willises. I remember always getting excited for the weekend because I knew my mom would make those delicious Bisquick pancakes. They were so fluffy and delicious. Yum! But fast-forward a few decades, and here we are with so many great options to make a family classic a little healthier for the kids bodies and for ourselves too.

The protein pancake recipe I’m about to share with you is so simple to make, which is why this #nofussmama absolutely loves it. Nothing like throwing a few ingredients together in the blender and voilà, instant batter!

Check out this tasty and healthy recipe that my entire family loves …

Pancakes are a big weekend favorite here at the Willises...
Protein Pancake

What you’ll need: Blender, measuring cups and spoons, spatula and a frying pan.


cup of organic cottage cheese


cup oats




Tbsp. of maple syrup

A generous shake of cinnamon. I love cinnamon so I go a little wild on the shake.

Throw all your ingredients in the blender and blend. Warm your pan with some grass-fed butter and get your pancakes going! Fry them for roughly two minutes on each side on medium heat, making sure the edges are a golden brown and slightly crispy!

Hot Tip: I’ve also sliced up some bananas thinly and added them to the top as the pancakes are still cooking in the pan. Blueberries as well are another great option.

Now I know I said I was going to post my husband’s famous corn cake recipe but he’s away working at the moment and I really wanted to see how he does it before I interpret my own version of it. It wouldn’t be the same. I promise, one day you will see this recipe (maybe in my cookbook) because it really is a good one!

But for now enjoy the healthier version!!!

Any pancake favorites you love making?

I make two different kinds of pancakes regularly that are major toddler-pleasers for my 20 month old and my 3 year old).

1) Banana Egg Pancakes – Mash 2 bananas (best if they’re over ripe), add 4 scrambled eggs, 1/4 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Mix together, try to mash up any clumps. Pour on griddle about 1 tbsp. per pancake to make flipping easier. The consistency and taste is more like a fluffy crepe than a pancake. My kids gobble these up.

2) Johnny Cakes – Combine dry ingredients: 3/4 cup cornmeal, 3/4 cup all purpose flour, 2 tbsp. sugar and 1/2 tsp each: baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whish together wet ingredients: 1 1/4 cup buttermilk, 3 tbsp. melted butter and 2 large eggs. Combine wet and dry until smooth. Pour on griddle about 1/4 cup per pancake. Serve with maple syrup or jelly (that’s how my kids like them). These freeze and reheat well.

I’m definitely going to try your recipe too! Sounds great and healthy 🙂

Hi Emma,
I will try your Pancake for sure! and I hope to try Bruce Pancake too! and than I will let you know how one :)))
If I make Pancake I will put sliced Banana in and smash it up a little with a fork … and sometimes I add blueberries or strawberries 🙂 – very good!
And yes good idea to think about a cookbook! but there are so many good recipes it is so hard to choose 🙂
thanks for your recipe and enjoy your day and specially the weekends with Pancake breakfast!
