Low Carb Protein Pancake recipe

protein pancakesThis will be my first recipe, well actually my first post whatsoever, I will start with something simple. Something that I eat almost every other day. Namely PROTEIN PANCAKES! Totally 321 kCal with 38 grams of protein!

I love protein pancakes! They are easy to make, really cool to photograph, (can be, like these ones) super healthy, delicious and there is what feels like a thousand different ways to make them. Here is one way:

Clean protein pancakes



  • 4 egg whites
  • 60 grams low fat cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Fiber Husk (Its basically crushed psyllium seeds and it works as a binder)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 10 drops of vanilla sweetener
  • a pinch of salt


  • 15 grams casein “Nut cream” flavour
  • A splish of water
  • 25 grams chunky peanut butter
  • Calorie free maple syrup
  • A few blueberries and coconut chips

Low Carb Protein PancakesInstructions

  1. Start by putting your pan on medium heat
  2. Spray the pan with a non-stick cooking spray
  3. Put all ingredients except for the toppings in a blender
  4. Mix until you get a smooth pancake batter
  5. When the pan is hot pour the batter in little puddles
  6. Wait for a while util the pancake is getting firm or until you see small bubbles
  7. Flip those little guys!
  8. Quickly fry on the other side until a nice golden brown color appears
  9. Add a little water to the casein powder
  10. Build the pancake stack by layering the pancakes with the toppings

Protein pancakesSubstitutions

  • Use 1 whole egg, instead of 2-3 whites
  • The fiber husk can be hard to get a hold of, try substituting with crushed chia seeds, flax seeds or protein powder. Alternatively use oat flour, instead of fiber husk but then its all of a sudden a completely different kind of pancake and its not low carb anymore!
  • Use a different sweetener or no sweetener at all instead of the vanilla one, and the same goes for all the toppings
