Vegan Fluffy Protein Pancakes


Today I am sharing a recipe for my super fluffy protein pancakes!

Have you ever tried to make protein pancakes but ended up disappointed at the dense, chewy texture or gritty plain flavour? Don’t fear – these pancakes are just like regular, fluffy, diner-style chocolate chip pancakes but with added protein!

The protein powder I used in this recipe is a sweetened and vanilla-flavour protein powder from Organifi. This protein powder is by far my favourite, and it’s also the only one I have used to make these pancakes. Due to the sweetness and vanilla flavour I did not include sugar in the pancake recipe. However, if your protein powder is unsweetened, I would suggest adding some sugar or sweetener to the batter! If you want to try out the one I use, click this link and use the code “LIVB” for $20 off your first order from Organifi.

Vegan Protein Pancakes

Vegan Fluffy Protein Pancakes

  • Author: Liv B
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 pancakes


Disclaimer: not all protein powders are created equal, and some are far better in taste and texture than others. If you try out this recipe and don’t like it, consider trying a different flavour and brand of protein powder!


  • 11/4 cups non-dairy milk + 1 tbsp white or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup vegan vanilla protein powder (I use this one)
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Handful of dairy-free chocolate chips


  1. Mix together the non-dairy milk and vinegar. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together flour, protein powder, baking powder, salt and cinnamon until combined.
  3. Add the milk mixture and oil to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined (it’s okay to have some lumps- see my batter in the video below).
  4. Heat a frying pan on medium heat. Once hot, add the batter in pancake shapes. Add the chocolate chips if using. Allow the pancakes to cook a few minutes until the edges are cooked and some bubbles have risen to the surface and burst. Then, flip and cook another 30 seconds – 1 minute.
  5. Serve with vegan butter and maple syrup.
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
