Egg White and Oatmeal Protein Pancake

While I absolutely love protein pancakes, the preparation process surrounding protein pancakes can sometimes deter me from making them in the morning. They’re definitely not hard to make, but sometimes that extra step of using an immersion blender and cleaning it is enough to make me shy away from cooking up a batch of the filling pancakes.

If you feel the same way, I think you might want to give today’s breakfast recipe a try!

Deconstructed Protein Pancake

This recipe comes to you from my friend Caitlin who first told me about this recipe and promised me it tasted like a protein pancake. I was skeptical at first since the recipe is pretty basic and seems almost more like a sweet omelet than a protein pancake, but after one attempt, I was sold.

Protein Pancake made with Egg Whites, Oats, Cinnamon and Stevia

It sounds really funky, but if you like protein pancakes or if you’re looking for a protein pancake recipe that doesn’t incorporate dairy or protein powder, I encourage you to give it a go! I tried it out on my family last weekend and it got rave reviews from everyone.

Egg White and Oatmeal Protein Pancake

Egg White and Oatmeal Protein Pancake

Serves one


  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 packet stevia or 2 teaspoons sugar or a couple of drops of liquid stevia (<- my preference)
  • Cinnamon to taste (I use a lot of cinnamon!)


  1. Spray pan with cooking spray and heat over a medium high heat
  2. Stir all ingredients together until adequately combined and pour into pan
  3. When the pancake begins to turn white and the edges of the pancake begin to harden, flip and cook for another one to two minutes
  4. Top with syrup, nut butter, fresh fruit or slivered almonds and enjoy


Sometimes my pancake comes out looking more like scrambled eggs than a pancake, so don’t worry if that happens to you, too! The taste is still the same.

I ate my protein pancake after my morning workout at the gym.

Ryan and I headed out before dawn and I completed a workout that focused on my biceps, triceps and shoulders that looked a lot like this cardio arms workout. It was a good one!

Now I’m off to the gym again to start my work day!

Question of the Morning

  • Do you like protein pancakes? What is your favorite way to make them?

    Too funny! This is usually how I do mine. Sometimes oat bran over oatmeal, and sometime protein powder in a pinch. If I really need to pack a protein punch, sometimes I’ll do a combo of the two. Can tag you on IG with a few of my favorite go-to’s.

    My hubby was like “your omelet looks good” 😂I was like it’s a pancake but it is! Haha and I agree- I never feel like having to deal with the blender in the AM!


  3. Michelle Blizzard says

    Have you ever prepared any kind of protein pancakes the night before?? Either with bananas, cottage cheese, eggs, etc. Does the batter stay good overnight? I’m trying to get my husband to eat better breakfasts than Cheerios! Haha!

    I finally made this after teaching a couple fitness classes this morning. Perfect!! I am always starving when I get home, and it hit the spot! I was unsure one “pancake” would satisfy my crazy hunger, but it was soooo filling. Thanks for sharing 😀
