These vegan protein pancakes are soft, fluffy, and made with just 7 ingredients. The perfect easy pancake recipe for breakfast or brunch! 


  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (sub any plant based milk)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (sub lemon juice)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil + extra oil for greasing the pan 
  • (150g) 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • (30g) 5 tablespoons vanilla protein powder*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder


  1. Mix the wet ingredients. In a medium bowl or measuring cup, stir together the almond milk, apple cider vinegar, and oil. Set aside. 
  2. Mix the dry ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, protein powder, baking soda, and baking powder. 
  3. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined – a few lumps are okay. Be careful not to over mix the batter or your pancakes will be tough. 
  4. Cook the pancakes. Heat a nonstick griddle or well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Once hot, grease the pan. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto the pan and cook until bubbles form, about 3 minutes. Then flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 2-3 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  5. This recipe yields about 12 small pancakes. Serve with fresh fruit, vegan butter, and maple syrup. 


* I used Naked Nutrition vegan vanilla protein powder

* Cook time will vary based on how large your griddle is and how many pancakes you are able to cook at one time.
