This is one of my Absolute Favorites! I got the original recipe from my very first Figure Coach years ago, Sandra Wickham IFBB Figure Pro.
I made a double batch today, and then I just split the pancakes into 2 servings. Ill do this 2x so that I can get through the week(4 servings) and then maybe do my Oatmeal Pudding the rest or eat separate.
1/2c Egg Whites(I use Lana’s)
1 whole egg
1/2 scoop protein powder(any flavor, im using vanilla here)
*if you’re allowed fruit, 1/2 banana gives great moisture & consistency, 1/2c strawberries would be leaner.
So im making a DOUBLE batch. I have one fruit in the morning. On my heavy workout days (2hrs or more) I have the banana, on off or single workout days I have berries. Because this is for 2 day I split it and did one serving of each. And I wanted to try it! ;)
Put all ingredients into a blender. You can use salt, sweetener, spices(cinnamon, nutmeg, etc) to taste. I didn’t use sweetener this time as I thought the fruit & protein powder would be sweet enough. (Especially if your bananas are ripe) I set my stove top to level 3 and lightly grease the pan with coconut oil. Once you see the bubbles start to come through, its time to flip. Doesn’t need much on the 2nd side. I split my cakes into 2 plates, one I eat (YUMMM!) And the other I pop into the fridge to eat the next day. The size I made turned out to be 4 pancakes per serving.
OPTIONS: (oh boy – lots!)
-Different flavor protein powders
-Add a touch of extract(coconut, vanilla, rum-get crazy, lol)
-Add spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa powder, pumpkin spice, etc)
-Higher cal/building program- Add almond butter to make it a roll or sandwich. I LOVE the fresh ground at Whole Foods!
So with ALL the options of protein flavors, fruits (if allowed), spices and other flavorings, you should be able to make yourself a Happy Meal for Breakfast! (Hehe, aka, “Meal #1”)

Put ingredients in blender
Put oatmeal, fruit, egg and egg whites (and any additional ingredients) in blender.
Show: 1 banana, 1c oatmeal, 2 eggs, 1c Lana’s Egg whites (double batch).
Once all ingredients are placed in the blender, blend until smooth. Consistency should be somewhat thick, able to coat the pan but not too runny.
Flip the cake over
You should stay by the pan so that the cake doesn’t burn. Once you see the bubbles start to pop up on top, its time to flip the pancake over.
This recipe can make a double-batch so I usually make that twice to get my 4 breakfasts during the week. After that I can make more or just make my bread pudding with those same ingredients.
