The BEST Low-Carb Protein Pancakes EVER

Best Low-Carb Pancakes
Okay I know this is a little dramatic but lately I have tried so many protein pancake attempts and overall they were all good but none were REALLY good until I made these! They are the perfect blend of ingredients!

*Makes 1 large serving of 3-4 pancakes

Here it is!
3.5 tbsp cottage cheese
1/4 cup egg whites
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp almond milk
1/2-1 tsp splenda(my protein powder is already pretty sweet so I don't need much)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 scoop good quality vanilla protein powder(I use creamy vanilla PVL)
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt

-1/2-1 tsp coconut oil
-1/2 cup mashed berries(thaw in microwave and mash with fork) mixed with 1 tsp splenda or other sweetener
(I used 1 large strawberry + some raspberries & blueberries)
-sugar-free syrup

Directions: Heat a pan over low-medium heat. Spray with Pam(you may need to re-spray for each pancake). Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. In a food processor, combine all wet ingredients and pulse until smooth. Stir wet ingredients into dry.(Don’t over mix). Use a ladle to pour batter onto hot pan to form pancake shapes. Flip after 1-2 minutes on each side. (Look for browning or bubbles coming through.) Repeat until batter is gone, placing each finished pancake onto a plate inside your oven(heated to lowest temp. then turned off) to stay warm. Serve all the pancakes warm. Dip a knife in coconut oil and lightly spread over each pancake. Top with sugar-free syrup & hot fruit mixture. Enjoy! 🙂

  1. These are terrible! I followed the recipe step by step and even ran to the grocery store on a rainy day to get exact ingredients and they turned out horrible, the mix doesnt even cook well enough to turn the pancake over!! what a mess 🙁

    1. Oh no!! I am so sorry! I have no idea why they didn’t work 🙁 I am not sure what protein powder you used but that definitely has a large impact on the results. I used to eat these everyday and had no problems with them falling apart! I always cooked them slow (maybe a slighty lower temperature) as protein pancakes sometimes require a bit of extra time to cook properly. Again, I am so sorry ! Some of my other pancake recipes may be better if you give them a shot although they may not be as low-carb! Thank you for the feedback!

  2. I tried these today and they worked very well! And were very tasty – cooked longer and lower and no problems!

  3. These are my favorite THM pancakes! Thanks. You do have to cook the first side very well before you try to turn it. A nonstick skillet also helps.
