Vitamix Protein Pancakes
Add this Protein Pancake recipe to the (long) list of reasons why you need a Vitamix blender or high speed equivalent. It hits the spot, scratches the itch AND packs the proverbial protein punch! I’m obsessed. And you. Are. Welcome.
In my older, wiser and more nutritionally-focused (read: sort of boring) age, I rarely eat pancakes at home. I am, however, the first to suggest an order of blueberry “table cakes” when out to brunch with friends, which is a baller move if I do say so myself. But in the quiet comfort of my own home, I tend to lean towards the lighter side. With this easy, light, protein packed recipe, I can get that similar “table cake” fix without the heavy feeling that restaurant style stacks often induce. Plus, it helps to have a back pocket recipe that consistently hits all the spots. These fluffy, golden protein pancakes are not only delicious but they’re also really good for you. It’s a comforting morning meal you can feel good about and if you have kids or a family at home, you can feel good about making them.
Using a Vitamix or high speed blender makes the batter smooth and perfect 60% of the time, all the time, which honestly makes the recipe. Sometimes, if I’m feeling a certain way, I’ll add some oats or hemp seeds in their OG unblended state, but most of the time I make it as explained below.
Of course, I always encourage everyone to make my recipes theirs. So, please feel invited to add in (or omit) ingredients as you please. For example, sometimes I’ll throw in a handful of chopped walnuts nuts, frozen blueberries or chia seeds. I don’t typically do all three at once but live your dream. Would go great with a few pieces of bacon and don’t think twice before making breakfast for dinner. This is a lazy foolproof meal that you seriously can’t feel bad relying on. So, whether you’re a busy parent needing a quick and nutritious breakfast, or simply a pancake lover seeking a healthier alternative, my Vitamix Protein Pancakes is always a good idea!
