Dairy-Free (ish) Protein Pancakes



  • 1/4 cup unflavoured soy protein powder (30g)
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp Benefibre (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • lots of shakes of cinnamon
  • 2 packets stevia (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup egg whites (not dairy IMO!)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond breeze (I would start with 1/4 cup and add until desired consistency)

Whisk together, and pour on a medium-heat greased frying pan. Add any extra fixings your heart desires. I like sprinkling flaked coconut and walnut pieces on top :)


Fluffiest protein pancakes I’ve tried yet!





It is imperative that one dips their pancakes and does not drizzle. It is my one rule for eating these ;)



  1. 1/2…what.. of.. almond.. milk?

    making these. probably for dinner.

  2. mmmmmmmmmmmm i just stuff myself silly with these! the recipe makes SO much and they are so yummy. my batter was a little thin, i think next time i will do less liquid. i think it is because of the different altitudes? anyway, thanks for a winner of a recipe, susan!

  3. Love this recipe Susan! What kind of soy protein powder do you use?!!! xoxo

  4. Made these pancakes for breakfast today, after a cold wet run. They were great. You sure get a lot for the calories – the nutrient stats are great overall. Filled me up nicely! Will make them again. Thanks for the recipe.

  5. I made these this morning for the first time. Oh my goodness. You are a genius! These are the best protein pancakes! EVER.

  6. Yummm this recipe looks divine! I’m making pancakes tomorrow for sure. Probably going to combine this with one of Heab’s recipes. I don’t think i’ve had pancakes since I was home. Tragic.

  7. Looks yummy Susan. You must get your waffle maker back ASAP, and dip, no drizzle – got it! :)

  8. OMG, I had a disaster with my cottage cheese pancakes (they normally work) this morning, and I was scared of fucking up again, so I found your recipe and tried it. I thought when making it the batter was a bit thin, but omg they turned out amazing, so flully and perfectly cake like in texture. Unfortunately I have not tried them yet, I will tomorrow and tell you probably how much i love them even more.
    But wow thank you for giving me a use for my disgusting tasting soy protein.

  9. How many eggs would it take for 1/2 cup egg whites? I really wanna try it!

  10. hi there…somehow found your blog today…love it! LOVE IT!
    I had a ? about the nutritional values posted….this recipe makes HOW MANY SERVINGS? and How many of those pictured pancakes is “1 serving”?

    they look divine.

    • Hey Maryann! The recipe is one whole serving, and that’s what is shown in the pictures. Makes 4 small-medium pancakes, and I eat them aaaallll ;)

  11. hi..do you know if it will work with any protein powder??
    thanks…looks yummy,can’ t wait to try them..

    • Hi Jen! It’s *best* with soy, as I find it takes on the same texture as flour when cooked. That way you can’t even tell there’s protein powder in there. Whey gets a little hard and “squeaky” when cooked. So does brown rice. Hemp and pea protein are okay and similar to soy, but might change the flavour a little!

  12. Can i replace the protein powder with anything? I don’t buy it but I want to give this recipe a try!

  13. These were devine :) I added another scoop of vegan protein powder and 2 more tbsp of flax meal bc I did find it to be too runny. I let the batter sit for a few minutes before cooking, and they turned out fantastic! Thank you!

    • Happy you liked them! I always recommend adding the milk until you get the desired consistency. There are so many factors that can change it!
