First things first. Catching up on here from last week? Make sure you check out these Harry Potter inspired energy bites and Sunday’s sessions filling you in on recent happenings on this little old blog. 

Friends, I lied. 

Remember when I said that I suffer FOMO from Thanksgiving? It goes further to food products. Every so often, a healthy food product trends like crazy amongst the healthy living blogger community. Here’s how it pans out. 

Check my blog reader.

See several blogs highlight some new food product. 

Check to see it’s stockists.

NONE IN AUSTRALIA. 

This occurs on a weekly basis. 

I’ve come to terms that here in Australia, there isn’t just a delay when it comes to time- There is a delay when it comes to food products too. Instead of moping over it and trying to find ways to obtain a green card, I rectify it by making my own.

Well, I rectified it this one time by making my own.

Over the last couple of months, I’ve been seeing many of my favourite blogs discuss boxed protein pancake mixes. I am a huge fan of protein pancakes, yet always make mine from scratch. Currently on rotation are my Pumpkin Gingerbread Protein pancakes and these Black Forest Pancakes. Not the Red Velvet Pancakes though. As delicious as they are, I am NOT in the mood to stain another part of my house purple. The former two are delicious and take barely any time to whip up but sometimes, you feel like a basic pancake mix you don’t need to measure ingredients out for and within minutes, have a stack of pancakes. 

My recent travels to the Northern hemisphere and also to Malaysia made me think- Wouldn’t it be convenient to have a mixture where you wouldn’t need to measure any flour or dry matter and simply add either liquid or eggs? Well, I have you covered. All you need is a 3/4 cup measuring cup and voila- You can have pancake mix all sorted.

The beauty of this homemade protein pancake mix is that is simply a base! You can mix or match it up any way you like!

Here are some basic ideas for you! 

1 part base + 1/4 cup blueberries + cinnamon- A blueberry base! 

1 part base + 2 T cocoa powder – a chocolate base!

1 part base + 1 small chopped apple + cinnamon-  an apple and cinnamon base! 

1 part base + 1 Arman = hello sunshine. 

You get the picture. This homemade protein pancake mix also makes the perfect gift for the fit minded foodie or someone that just wants pancakes real fast. Like the beauties below…

Ingredients

Instructions

For the mixture

  • In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour. Add the protein powder, sweetener of choice, baking powder and sea salt. Mix very well.
  • Pour into an air tight container or jar. Makes four 3/4 cup servings.

To make the pancakes (1 serving)

  • Pour 3/4 cup of the dry mix into a large mixing bowl.
  • If desired, add extra dry ingredients to the mix (e.g. nuts, chocolate chips, cocoa powder)
  • Slowly stir in 1/4 cup liquid of choice (I used milk). Depending on the flour you used and protein powder, you may need more. Using a tablespoon, continue to add liquid until a thick batter is formed. If wanting to add extra 'wet' ingredients to the mix (e.g. fresh fruit).
  • Heat a large frying pan on medium heat and coat evenly with oil or cooking spray. When hot, pour large spoonfuls of the batter and cover. When the edges start to brown, flip and repeat.
  • Serve pancakes immediately with desired toppings.

Notes

I used a casein blend of protein powder. These tend to be thicker thus when I make pancakes, I end up using close to 1/2-3/4 cup of milk. For strictly a whey protein, this would be close to 1/4 cup. For a vegan protein powder, I've found the need to use more liquid.
If using a sweetened protein powder, reduce the sweetener of choice to 2 tablespoons.

  1. Arman, this is genius!! I need to take time and make this. It is exactly the reason why pancakes didn’t happen for MONTHS in my house, cause I am always way too impatient.
    I love this as a gift idea too! Can I have the Hello Sunshine base please?

  2. You read my mind, Arman!! I’ve never made protein pancakes and just yesterday was thinking to myself I need to do some research on quantities! For religious reasons, we tend to avoid cooking egg at home on Mondays so definitely trying this out next Monday, if not sooner!

    Current favourite protein powder is Sunwarrior Warrior Blend!

  3. What an awesome idea! I don’t make pancakes often, but not having to mix all the dry stuff first would be so helpful. My favorite protein powder is GNC’s whey protein. They have a cookies n’ cream flavor that I love!

  4. Part of the reason that I have never tried flaphjacked and don’t own any pancake mixes is that I always make my own–why should I pay $$$ for something when I already have everything on hand? Plus, so often they have so much crap added to it–ain’t nobody got time fo dat. And I don’t like to be relegated to a particular flavor. Blueberries are definitely a favorite (you gotta love the pop inside your mouth 😉 ) and sprinkles, obvs. I’m pretty open–I like it all!

      1. Good pancakes make everything livable. There is a place a stone’s throw from my apartment that does the most amazing berry granola pancakes ever. And they are the size of dinner plates. And you get 3. NO JOKE.

  5. This def would make for a perfect DIY holiday gift!! So jealous of your recent travels..my dad goes to Malaysia quite often, and I think it’s time that I accompany him 😉

  6. I am ALL about quick and easy, Arman…and this pancake mix looks awesome. I don’t regularly stock boxed pancake mix in my pantry anymore (I did back in my bachelor days), and now that I think about it, we don’t eat pancakes very often anymore. I clearly need to make a batch of these mix!

  7. Yes an idea that makes meals an easier task! I’m always in for that. I think Optimum When in French Vanilla is still my all time favorite whey to bake with.

    I’ve been trying to think of healthy do it yourself items for Christmas and this has made the list! 🙂

  8. Absolutely loving this idea!! I keep telling myself I need to have a pancake mix, ready to go because I am SO famished in the morning and have no patience half the time to make pancakes. Lazy, I know. Pinning this and making asap!

  9. Guess what other country doesn’t have those cool stuff that are staples in the states… now protein pancakes mixes, I gues not even regular pancake mixes!
    Speaking of lagging behind foodwise, I have the funniest (and sadest) story to tell you. I was listening to the radio the other and the speaker was telling about the “new hype” coming from the states. It was “kale” (he was saying the English word), and that all the celebrities are having it on a daily basis. Then they played interviews with pedestrians whom they had asked if they knew what “kale” was, and nobody knew. THEN the speaker revealed what it was: “Grünkohl” in German. Everyone knows it, but traditionally it is prepared like a stew and cooked until very mushy, nobody really likes it (besides grandmas…and my dad, lol). So it seems like the most disgusting thing to eat, but now that it is hyped (hasn’t kale been popular for YEARS in the USA already??) everyone will eat it 😀
