RECIPE: Easy Vegan Protein Pancakes

Pancakes are one of my favourite foods! I love pancakes that are fluffy, not too sweet and easy to make! When I decided to become vegan, I realised I could no longer eat the Protein Pancakes I had eaten previously as they were made with egg!

So began my quest to find an easy to make and delicious Vegan Protein Pancake Recipe! I came across a few different recipes yet each one I tried came out either flat or tasteless. Then I found the Running on Real Food blog and decided to give theirs a go! 

The result was delicious, fluffy and easy pancakes that were ready in minutes! I have found my new go-to treat! 

I slightly adapted the recipe and it worked just great so here is what I used.


1 Cup Self Raising Flour

1/4 Cup Hemp Power Pro  (You could use rice or pea protein also)

1 TBS Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1 tsp Cinnamon

2 TBS Pure Maple Syrup

1 Cup Water

Handfull of Blueberries


1. Add all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix.

2. Add Maple Syrup and slowly add the water while mixing. Make sure the batter does not become too wet. Add more water if needed.

3. Once you have a good consistency, add in the blueberries. (or any other fillings such as banana, raspberries etc)

4. Place 1/4 cup of batter in pan on a high heat. Wait until bubbles appear through the pancake, flip and then cook for another couple of minutes.

5. Serve immediately with toppings of your choice. I went for some more fresh blueberries and real maple syrup but you can add whatever you like! 

Some ideas are Chia Jam, fresh fruit, nut butter etc
