Did you know that adding at least 25 grams of protein to your breakfast is the key to feeling satisfied and reducing cravings?

It’s even more potent than decreasing carbs as it keeps you full, builds muscles, and may help burn fat if you work out. That’s why I love protein-loaded pancakes like my Chocolate Protein Pancakes, 3-Ingredient Protein Pancakes, or Cottage Cheese Protein Pancakes.

Adding these Greek yogurt protein pancakes to my morning routine is amazing because they are so easy to make, so good, that I meal prep batches for days ahead.

Here’s how to make delicious filling protein pancakes with Greek yogurt.

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.

Ingredients

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
  • Cinnamon

Preparation

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.

  • A dollop of Greek Yogurt
  • Fresh fruits like berries – we love raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries.
  • Banana Slices
  • Slices Almonds
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Dollop of Peanut Butter or almond butter
  • Chocolate Chips

Storage Instructions

Allergy Swaps

Here are some option to make this recipe if you have some food allergies

  • Nut-Free – Swap almond milk for any other milk you love like skim milk, coconut milk, or oat milk.
  • Gluten-Free – Pick a gluten free certified oat brands.
  • Oats – If you don’t have a blender, you can use ready-made oat flour and whisk all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. The recipe doesn’t work with almond flour or coconut flour. It might work using wheat flour, but the texture will be denser.
  • Egg-Free – An egg replacer, like 1/4 cup mashed banana, unsweetened applesauce, or flaxegg should work in this recipe.
  • Dairy-Free – Dairy-free Greek yogurt works in this recipe.
