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. These egg white and oatmeal protein pancakes eliminate that step completely and are simple, delicious, nutritious and filling!
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.
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’ve tried it with family and friends and it gets rave reviews from everyone. These egg white and oatmeal protein pancakes are perfect for the whole family.

An easy, delicious and protein-packed recipe, these egg white and oatmeal protein pancakes are made with simple, nutritious ingredients.

- Spray pan with cooking spray and heat over a medium high heat
- Stir all ingredients together until adequately combined and pour into pan

Liquid egg whites from a carton work best in this recipe.

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!
Okay okay okay, add many times add I’ve seen u post these protein pancakes for breakfast, I think I’m finally going 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.

How many calories does pancake have?
I love having protein pancakes with bananas and chocolate! Ooh and almond butter!
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!
I make it up the night before so the oatmeal soaks up the egg while and it is more like a pancake
tracy lynn says
is the pancake heavier or soggy??? That sounds like something I would want to do as the oats when I make pancakes don’t seem very digestible
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 ?
I have been blending these in the blender before cooking them to mix everything up. They come out just like pancakes when I do! Taste is perfect too. I’ve even been tossing in a few strawberries for added sweetness. Mmmm….

What if you pop your dry oatmeal in a food processor before mixing it with with the egg white? I’m going to try that and see if I can accomplish a smoother consistency that is more like a traditional pancake…

Julie, I have been making this for a couple of years now since I read it in maybe 2020 on your blog and love it! I have also shared it with people too! I love it topped with almond butter and maple syrup! The best!

I used quick oats, and they did not have enough time to soften to a desired texture. I used cinnamon, vanilla, Splenda, and sugar free maple syrup, along with a handful of frozen blueberries. It still had a very egg white taste to it. Tomorrow I will cook the oats with almond milk prior to mixing with the rest of the ingredients to see if that helps the texture/flavor.
These were so good! They didn’t take a lot of time to make. I mixed in a mini blender the egg whites with the oats , added vanilla and cinnamon, a banana and frozen wild blueberries. I topped with a little butter and sugar free syrup. They tasted like a healthy pancake to me. I loved this recipe and will add it to my rotation. Thank you!
I tried this recipe today. It didn’t really turn out like a pancake, could be the oats that I used, more like a protein omelette. Still tasty though, and very filling!
I added a quarter of a banana and blended to get a consistency I was happy with. Great easy new go to for me. Thanks for sharing!
