Blueberry Protein Pancakes

The number one breakfast food in my opinion is pancakes!! I say this for many reasons. For starters, they taste great! Also, you can make them in basically any flavor, they are quick and easy, and if you follow my recipes, they are good for you! I have made pumpkin, carrot cake, spinach, chocolate, zucchini, broccoli, and now Blueberry Pancakes!!
These are light, fluffy, and super easy!

Very few ingredients needed as always.
Vanilla protein powder, nonfat plain greek yogurt, egg substitute, vanilla, baking powder, and blueberries.

I used fresh blueberries but I am sure frozen ones would work too. 
Blueberries are so pretty!! Such a great summer snack. 

Just dump all your ingredients into one bowl and mix! I do suggest mixing everything except the blueberries first, and then stirring them in last.  
So far so good! You could also add some other berries if you like.  I have tried with some chopped up cherries, strawberries, and raspberries.  This batch is going to be strictly blueberry though.

Get your pan nice and hot and coat with non stick spray.  
It has been a while since I posted a pancake recipe, but my flipping skills are really improving!

Ta da!! You could top these with a number of different things.  I usually keep is simple with some spray butter and sugar free syrup.
Try a sprinkle of cinnamon, some greek yogurt, honey, jam, cream cheese, or some whipped cream! 

I love using the MTS vanilla whey in this recipe.  It works really well for baking, but you could use any kind.  
I have heard some people even tried with chocolate protein.  I bet cinnamon would be tasty too!

As always, these are crazy good for you! They are packed with a ton of protein and are very low carb and low fat.  Great before or after a workout! 
I don't know about you, but I love pancakes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Pancakes as a snack? You bet!!! There is no wrong time for pancakes!

  1. These look amazing, and I have my first order of vanilla protein powder coming in the mail tomorrow! I know what I'll be making!

    If I wanted to use real egg (or egg white, I guess, to keep the macros friendly), how much/how many would I use?

    1. One whole egg or two egg whites would work in place of the egg substitute :) Hope you enjoy them!
