4-Ingredient EASY Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes

Cheers to the weekend! No hangovers here, but these protein pancakes can be your hangover cure if you’re feeling it this morning. First, let’s be real, peanut butter anything tastes delicious! So when I combined peanut butter with this easiest recipe for protein pancakes – jackpot!

Yes, I did go through a phase in my fitness journey where I would chug protein powder with water post-workout…but why do that when you can make delicious protein smoothie bowls and protein pancakes like these. You can make this recipe fresh, or you can make them in bulk and pop them in the freezer. It’s so easy to grab them out of the freezer, pop them in the oven (or toaster oven) and boom, done!

Whenever I make protein pancakes normally, I use 3 ingredients: banana, eggs & Sun Warrior protein powder. And generally I top them with peanut butter because (isn’t it obvious!) peanut butter is SO good!

Side note: I picked up this new protein powder for these protein pancakes yesterday. I normally buy Sun Warrior protein powder but I found this new “classic plus” version at my local vegan supplement store last week. It has added quinoa protein, chia protein and amaranth and I really like it. It seems more chocolatey and, in my opinion, mixes a bit better than the classic.

Then when I was making these protein pancakes yesterday, I thought “Why not add the peanut butter goodness to the actual pancakes?” That’s when I decided to add PB2. That way I could get the peanut butter flavor for these protein pancakes without adding any more fat. I buy this in the USA, it’s not something I have been able to find where I live in Austria. So, for those of you checking out this recipe from Europe– you don’t NEED this ingredient. It’s totally fine to make your protein pancakes without this ingredient.

So, are you eager for the recipe? I wanted to make them again this morning but I realized I didn’t have any more eggs – BUMMER! So I made a super chocolate protein smoothie with maca instead (which I will blog about next week – promise!)
