  • 2 + 1/2 C rolled oats
  • 1/2 C vanilla protein powder
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 + 1/2 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk*
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • pinch of salt optional
  • Toppings of choice


  • Place oats into a blender and blend for 10-15 seconds to break down the oats (fun fact: you just made oat flour!)
  • Place remaining items into the blender and blend until a smooth batter is formed
  • Let the batter rest 8-10 minutes
  • Preheat non-stick pan (or griddle) over medium heat
  • Spray pan with cooking spray and scoop ¼ cup sized portions of batter into the pan, leaving room between the scoops of batter
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes until the edges begin to form (they’ll look slightly raised/curved/dry), and then flip to cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!


*You can also use regular unsweetened almond milk in this recipe
*Let the batter rest - don’t skip this step! This may seem strange, but this time allows the apple cider vinegar to activate the baking soda and baking powder to help create the fluffy texture! It also allows the batter to thicken a bit, creating a sturdier batter when flipping. If you put your pancakes on immediately after blending the batter, they tend to be a bit flat and break apart when trying to flip them (but still taste good). 
*Nutritional facts were calculated with whey protein powder and assumes your recipe makes 12 pancakes (this will depend on the size of pancakes you make). The nutritional facts also do not include toppings, as this will vary widely based on personal preference
