Simply Delicious Vegan Gluten-free Protein Pancakes

Today it's Sunday and sometimes I like to make a plate of these super-loaded #glutenfree, #dairyfree protein pancakes. The wholefood recipe is based on only wholefood ingredients, and is a super quick to make. It usually yields several pancakes (I only ever have one per serving) to enjoy later in the week.

These wholefood pancakes are a great wholefood alternative to those sugary, overly processed store-bought mixes and perfect if you are celiac like myself. The recipe is fully gluten-free, dairy-free and relies on mashed banana, egg substitute and protein powder instead of flour to make a delicious, wholefood-based batter.

Vegan Gluten-free Protein Pancake Recipe


  • 1 ripe banana, smashed

  • 2 tsp maca root powder

  • 1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute, or 2 eggs, free range organic

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • 4 scoops vegan protein powder

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 tbsp plantbased milk

Add all the ingredients to a blender to combine. In a hot skillet, pour a small portion of the batter into the pan. I make my pancakes the size of my fist. Its an easy portion measurement that even the kids can master. Next, simply cook the batter until it bubbles as regular pancakes.

I usually limit my serving size to one pancake because I absolutely love overloading them with healthy, wholefood toppings. Depending on how you choose to top yours, limit yourself to 1-2 pancakes as a serving portion.

Healthy Pancake Topping Ideas

One of my favourite toppings of the moment is a little drizzle of organic maple syrup and raw peanut butter. OMG it is so good and tasted like salty caramel on top! I also like to sprinkle high-fibre chia seeds, crushed walnuts and toasted coconut flakes to this for a little crunch. You simply just have to try it!

Other toppings that are wholefood-based and super tasty are:

  • fresh blackberries, almond flakes and 1 spoonful of coconut whip cream

  • fresh berries, a spoonful of Greek yoghurt, and drizzle of chia seed jam

  • fresh raspberries, homemade sugar-free Nutella and toasted coconut flakes

  • blueberry compote, a spoonful of coconut whip cream and chia seeds

  • homemade apple butter and dusting of ground cinnamon

Don't be shy to experiment with different toppings to make your pancakes truly spectacular.

Batch Cook Recipe

This wholefood breakfast recipe is pretty fast to make, and the pancakes will keep for 3-4 days in a sealed container or under plastic wrap. You could double the batter ingredients and do up a big batch for the family to heat and serve during the coming week.
