I LOVE a good pancake – thick and chewy. If I want a crepe, I’ll make crepes – not some of the “pancake” recipes shown in the blog world that look like tissue paper. This is dense without being dry, and full of protein without being grainy.
I tried Elise’s version the day she posted it, made some tweaks, and have been hooked ever since.
I can’t take any credit at all for this recipe, only posting here to show what I changed – original ingredients in italics:
- 1/4 cup oats (5 Tbsp oats)
- 1 Tbsp protein powder (not in original recipe)
- 1 Tbsp peanut flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla stevia, or sweetener of choice to taste (1 Tbsp maple syrup)
- 1/4 cup egg substitute (1 egg)
- 2 Tbsp almond milk
- pinch cinnamon, salt
Put all the ingredients in a small Magic Bullet cup, blend for a few seconds, and throw it in a pan!
It takes a few minutes longer to cook – don’t cook it on super high heat or flip before the top is no longer shiny.
And don’t flip it a second time – that knocks the air out of your pancake!

You can go light on the toppings – like just bananas and maple syrup. Or more extravagant, with almond butter. Or greek yogurt. Or all of the above.
