Have you ever known pancakes to contain anything other than CARBS!  Well – these are game changer pancakes!  Not just for their high protein but for taste! Pancakes like this could easily be served up at a 5 star resort or a renowned spa!   Not only are they luscious and light, but at the same time they contain a healthy amount of protein!  Protein is a powerful way to fuel up after a long night’s rest.  I always start my day with protein because I feel more energized and stay full longer.  Since I’m satisfied and full longer, I don’t over-snack.  And – I don’t even eat a half portion since they are so filling! I am totally fine with 2 pancakes so I give my hubby 3.  Now we’re both happy!

Benefit to you:

  1. Delicious taste (the secret is in the rich and flavorful as well as superfood loaded protein powder)
  2. High protein power breakfast
  3. High-fiber meal (can help you lose weight and reduce your risk for heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes).
  4. Low in saturated fats which accounts for only 4.4% of calories – well below the 9% limit!

Ingredients for the Vanilla High Protein Pancakes:  Recipe serves 2

  • 1/2 cup Hodgson Mill Buckwheat Pancake Mix
  • 1 scoop (1/3 cup)  of the  It Works! Creamy Vanilla Profit Protein Powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup almond milk


  1. Preheat griddle to 360°. Mix together the dry ingredients (pancake mix and protein powder)
  2. Add egg, oil and milk of choice.
  3. Mix well.  Allow to stand for 5 minutes.  Measure 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.
  4. Cook on one side until bubbles form on the edges. Turn and cook on other side.  For thinner pancakes, use a little more milk.

I am so excited about the It Works! protein powder. It’s SUPERB in smoothies too!  If you have ever been to a conference and tasted the creamy deliciousness of the vendor smoothies – well – the It Works! protein powders taste just like that!  I have been a smoothie lover for years, having experimented with all types of brands.  The It Works! Brand is not only the most delicious but I love the superfood nutrition.  Their proprietary blend contains a superior blend of protein, as well as feel good and mood-elevating superfoods and soluble and insoluble fibers. Some of my favorite power foods are the maca and cacao powders, blueberry extract and yes – there are even cruciferous extracts (broccoli) – you would never know so much nutrition is packed into this powder!

BTW…Be careful what you put on the top of these pancakes. Syrup is loaded with sugar! Just 1  Tablespoon of maple syrup has 52 calories and 13 carbs! Try adding a 1/2 Tablespoon of maple syrup or regular syrup but dilute it with water.

However, if you’re like me and want a lot of thick pouring syrup with NO calories, get this delicious syrup from Walden Farms – it’s our favorite!

Stay tuned for my next recipe using the It Works! Greens in my Carblightliving Power Packed Green Smoothie!
