Gluten free banana protein pancakes

    20 min

    I combined a few gluten free recipes to make these pancakes. They are made with oats, cottage cheese, banana and eggs. They are high in protein and sweet enough to eat without any toppings, though I usually eat them with some fresh fruit!

    Serves: 5 

    • Dry ingredients
    • 40g oats
    • 1 scoop protein powder (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • Wet ingredients
    • 1 banana
    • 2 eggs
    • 110g cottage cheese
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • water as needed

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Heat a large non-stick frying pan or flat griddle over medium heat.
    2. Blend oats, protein powder, brown sugar, cinnamon and baking powder in a blender until fine; dump into a large bowl.
    3. Blend banana, eggs, cottage cheese and vanilla extract in a blender until smooth; pour into bowl with dry ingredients and mix into a thick pancake batter. Stir water into the batter to thin slightly, as desired.
    4. Use a soup ladle to measure and pour each pancake onto the preheated pan or griddle. Cook until browned on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip pancakes and continue cooking until browned on the other side and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes more.


    If you have a blender big enough, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth to make the pancake batter.

    These turned out pretty tasty, though I had some issues with the batter and cooking. I had my pan on medium heat but found that the batter was soft so the outside would start burning before it had cooked enough to be able to flip them. So I turned the heat down to low and added a little flour to the batter (maybe about 1/4c), and the remaining pancakes were great. Served with sliced banana and syrup - yum!  -  03 Feb 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I just finished making these for breakfast and I really wish I would have taken a pic. They cook up so beautifully. They have the texture of a crepe but thickness of a pancake. Taste kind of like banana bread. Great high protein recipe just before going to the gym!  -  31 Oct 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! Blended it all up before camping and fried them up there. Threw some blueberries on top. We loved them and so did our kids. Followed the recipe as written.  -  20 Jul 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
