Vanilla protein pancakes [gluten free]

I was introduced to this gluten free pancake recipe by a friend of mine, and its become a firm favourite. It’s a simple recipe perfect for Saturday or Sunday brunch – I had mine with some dragonfruit, figs and honey, but would also go well with maple syrup and bacon, too.

The vanilla protein powder gives it a bit of flavour which is a nice accompaniment to the oats. If you prefer a smoother texture, whizz the oats in a food processor, or go for oat flour. Personally, I’m a fan of the texture so I left them as is.

I went for the Sun Warrior blend vanilla protein powder from Planet Organic: it’s dairy, soya and gluten free.

This gluten free protein pancake is a firm favourite - perfect for a morning energy boost.
Recipe type: Gluten-free
Cuisine: Breakfast
Serves: One Batch
  • 200g gluten free oats
  • 2 eggs
  • 250ml milk (semi-skimmed or full fat)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • Butter
  1. Heat the butter in a pan: pour in batter for each pancake.
  2. When the mixture bubbles, flip the pancake over – the first side is done.
  3. Repeat for the second side.
  4. The batter should be enough for four people: I made it for two, and froze the pancakes individually. This makes it easier to pop frozen pancakes in the toaster: perfect for a quick weekday breakfast.

    Can I add in some slivered pistachios?

    • I haven’t tried it but I don’t see why not! Substitute 15g of oats for pistachio I reckon – or dessicated coconut! Let me know how it goes 🙂
