How To Make Greek Yogurt Pancakes
It’s so easy to make these yogurt pancakes with protein powder that you will make them again and gain.
All you need to make this recipe is a blender, to combine all the ingredients together into a smooth pancake batter.
- Greek Yogurt – I used plain Greek yogurt, feel free to use vanilla Greek yogurt and remove the sweetener from the recipe.
- Milk of Choice – Almond milk works very well, or use skim milk to boost the protein.
- Large Egg
- Vanilla Pea Protein Powder – I am using a clean protein powder made from just 3 ingredients: pea proteins, natural sweetener, and vanilla flavor. Feel free to use any protein powder, like whey, soy, or hemp powder.
- Old-Fashioned Oats – Don’t swap it for almond flour, the pancakes fall apart and get fragile.
- Crystal Sweetener of Choice – like erythritol or coconut sugar.
- Baking Powder
This blender protein pancake recipe is the most easy one bowl pancake recipe.
Throw all the ingredients into a high-speed blender, or NutriBullet: egg, milk, Greek yogurt, oats, baking powder, sweetener, cinnamon, and protein powder.
Blend on high speed until the batter is smooth, with no bits and pieces of oats.
Transfer the batter to a mixing bowl. Whisk again, adjust, adding a splash of extra milk if the pancake mixture thickens too much.
Warm a pancake griddle or non-stick skillet or crepes pan over medium heat. Grease the surface with cooking oil spray and pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter into the warm griddle.
Cook the pancakes for 2 to 3 minutes on one side or until the sides start to dry out and bubbles form in the center of the pancakes.
Slide a spatula under the pancake and flip on the other side. Cook for an extra 1 minute until set and dry in the center.
These easy protein pancakes are delicious plain, or with some toppings like:

Thaw the day before and rewarm in a warm griddle, microwave, or bread toaster.
