Print Recipe Pin Recipe

Ingredients

  • ¾ scoop (25 g) vanilla whey/casein blend 50/50 blend. I mix 12.5g of whey and 12.5g of casein together
  • ¼ cup (20 g) oat flour ⁣⁣
  • 1 ⅓ tbsp (10 g) tapioca flour⁣⁣ or cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp (1 g) baking powder ⁣⁣
  • ¼ cup (60 g) liquid egg whites⁣⁣
  • cup (75 g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt ⁣⁣
  • 1-2 tbsp (25 g) water ⁣⁣

Instructions

  • Mix all the dry ingredients together so no clumps are present. NOTE: I have tested this with only whey protein and it doesn't turn out as well. Only casein will work but you may need more water in the batter. The 50/50 blend is best.
  • Add in the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • Heat a griddle/skillet on medium heat and spray with oil. Add the batter and cook for a couple minutes, then flip.

    Hi! You mention that the casein has to be used to get the desired consistency. I typically use a vegan protein because im lactose intolerant. However, I am vegan and have no other dietary restrictions. Is there anyway I can replicate the same consistency with a vegan protein?

    1. Benedict Lane

      I am NOT vegan* sorry for the typo

    2. Josh Cortis

      No, casein is completely unique in its protein structure and is what makes these pancakes soft and not dry and hard.

      1. Benedict Lane

        Oh I see. Would I be able to swap the whey half with vegan protein while keeping to casein? Just trying to minimize the dairy as much as possible without compromising too much.

        In the same spirit, are they any good substitutes for the yogurt?

        1. Josh Cortis

          possibly but ive never used vegan protein so i can’t say for sure

  2. Stian

    Well done young man, best protein pancakes i have ever eaten 👍🏻

  3. Khalil

    Tried with a 50/50 mix and it was amazing but I hate the taste of my whey protein so I tried with 100% casein instead the next time. I definitely had to add more water and overall the consistency was better with 50/50 whey but still really good. Time to go buy better whey 🤷‍♂️

    1. Adam

      I bought Nutricost’s vanilla whey and vanilla casein, and not only do they taste great, they make AMAZING protein pancakes and waffles.

  4. Katsu

    For the greek yogurt, if you use whole fat instead of nonfat, will it turn out ok? I like eating whole fat yogurt generally and its what I tend to keep in the fridge.

    1. Josh Cortis

      That should be fine, just higher in calories 👍

      1. Shoopah

        Yo man. My mix started off a good consistency but then just got thicker and thicker as I cooked them. Used the recipe as written.

        1. Josh Cortis

          You could try letting it sit a while so the powders have a chance to hydrate then adjust the water as needed

    I’m a little confused on the serving sizes. I’m looking to make 532 calories worth. The website says 28 grams of the dry ingredients makes two servings, but the video says double that. Maybe I’m missing something. Any help would be much appreciated! I love the overall website!

    Killer protein pancakes, I threw in 15g of vanilla pudding mix (jello brand is what I used) adds about 50 calories but gives a really good sweetness. Make these probably more often than I should.

    Great recipe. I’ve been having it daily. I use Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard vanilla whey, and Dymatize Vanilla casein. Can you share what brands you use to make your 50/50 blend? I think better tasting protein powders could help with the flavor so I’m curious what you use.

  8. Ali

    All your recipes look great and I am excited to add them into my cooking so thank you! Just wondering what Protein brand you typically use?
    Thanks!

        Hey I just loved it but can you suggest some substitute for yogurt? Can I just skip it ?

  9. Thea

    My pancakes stick to thé pan everytime… what can i do?

  10. Oliver Crowhurst

    I’m confused about the nutrition information. If I make one pancake with the recipe set to one serving, does that make a 266 Cal Pancake? If so then how come four of your pancakes are 580 something Cals??

    1. Josh Cortis

      the recipe without any toppings gives you the 266 calorie number

  11. Daniel Bold

    Hey josh, I’m wondering if you can use whole eggs instead of just eggwhites? and if so do the measurments change?

    1. Josh Cortis

      Yes, the measurements would be the same. It would be about 1 large egg

  12. James

    Can you use other flavors aside from vanilla?

    1. Josh Cortis

      Yes but it will taste like whatever flavor that is instead of plain

  13. Ethan S.

    I wonder if you could replace the yogurt with a banana mash?

    Recipe measurements were good and my pancakes came out alright, I didn’t add any baking powder because I didn’t have any yet and only used 100% whey vanilla flavor. Considering they weren’t half bad with the wrong ingredients I can’t wait to try with the right stuff. The toppings definitely helped masked the flavor though.

  15. Danny

    Have you tried waffling the mix?

  16. Toby

    Hey Josh,

    The recipe makes 4 pancakes as default unless you change the number and the macros are per 1 pancake, is that correct?

    Thanks

  17. Keri

    Can you please recommend a brand of vanilla casein powder?

  18. Sam

    Hi Josh, Can I use one whole scoop of protein powder and just add extra water? If not, how much do I need to compensate with other ingredients?

    Hi Josh, I just wanted to ask do you think the flour really contributes much to the recipe or is it about the same without it? I only have cornstarch and I’ve been making it and wondering why my calorie logs are so high and it turns out cornstarch is over 3x as calorically dense as the one you use, so that’s another bit of calories I could live without. GREAT recipe though! I’ve been making it every day with maple syrup and about 6 grams of butter, it’s a nice balance between satiating and tasty.
