This recipe allows you to enjoy the taste of pancakes without overloading your body with calories and sugar. Healthy pancakes are an option your entire family will love.

Not only do these pancakes provide a healthier alternative to most traditional pancake recipes, they have added health benefits.

Servings: 2 person
Calories: 180kcal


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats uncooked - old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 banana ripe
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup blueberries frozen


  • Throw everything except blueberries in the blender and blend until smooth. Spray pan with safflower (or other) oil and get it hot like a griddle, pour half of the mixture into pan, and place a few blueberries on top. These pancakes won’t “bubble” on top like regular pancakes, so you need to watch the bottoms. When bottom is lightly brown and the pancaked is cooked halfway through, flip and cook the other side – this will also heat the frozen blueberries. When done, remove pancake and pour in the rest of the batter, repeat.

    Where can I find the Calorie/nutritional info.  This sounds like something I would like.

  2. Petrie  July 9, 2012

    Very delicious! My 2 year old even likes them! Would also like the nutritional information for calorie tracking. 

  3. Skinny Ms.  July 10, 2012

    Petrie, GREAT…so glad your 2 year old like the pancakes. This particular recipe was submitted by a guest contributor and we
    don't have the nutritional info. 🙁

  4. Jennifer Bridgeforth  July 11, 2012

    This recipe sounds amazing, but I'd tweak it a bit due to my low-carb lifestyle.

    • Skinny Ms.  July 11, 2012

      Jennifer, Absolutely…and can easily be tweaked!

  5. Dawn Regan  July 13, 2012

    Calorie/nutritional info would be greatly appreciated.

    • Skinny Ms.  July 13, 2012

      Dawn, This recipe came from a guest contributor and it have nutritional data. 🙁

      • Michele Gettle Conard  July 31, 2013

        By adding how many calories for each ingredient these are approximately 400 calories for the serving. Depending on the protein powder you use, the calorie count can change. I used 100 calorie protein powder.

  6. Stacia_butler  July 26, 2012

    These pancakes are our new family favorite. I am going to try adding in PB2 powdered peanut butter next time and do chunks of bannan instead of blueberries and see how that tastes!! My sister in law and I bagged up the dry ingredients to make it easier for weekday breakfasts~! Super yummy! Thanks so much!

  7. Virginia  July 26, 2012

    My husband and I spend a lot of time in the gym, and this is a great way to have a healthy breakfast and get our protein in the morning after a workout! Thanks Skinny Ms.!

  8. Chanel  August 12, 2012

    Just made these for breakfast. Didn't have banana, used apple sauce instead (natural) and whipped it all in magic bullet, made 3 medium sized pancakes for me and PERFECT! Will make again changing up ingredients. Used vanilla protein and it keeps everything together making flipping a breeze. Can't wait to make again, Husband was jealous I didn't double the recipe.


  9. Andrea  September 25, 2012

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but do you cook the oatmeal, or are you using rolled oats.

  10. dineenbecky  October 4, 2012

    Thanks for sharing about powdered peanut butter! I didn't know it existed but now must find it!!

  11. Shawnee  October 4, 2012

    Can anyone recommend a good protein powder? One with the least amount of additives or preservatives and ok for kids?

    • Skinny Ms.  October 4, 2012

      Shawnee, The only one I use is sold at Earth Fare grocery store.

    • jackiee  October 4, 2012

      I use Beverly International protein powder. Its the best I've found. Taste is good and calories/carbs/fat count are the best out there!!

    • Jessi  July 3, 2013

      We use only MonaVie RVL shake mix. Perfect combination of PFC (protein, fat and carbs) to not spike or drop your blood sugar level. Comes in chocolate and vanilla. I use it to make healthy ice pops too….my son LOVES them! mymonavie.com/jppagano

  12. Maria  October 6, 2012

    can I use oat flour instead of oats?

  13. shamrockj66  October 7, 2012

    I use IsoPure Protein Powder by Nature's Best. It is my favorite high quality whey protein isolate on the market. It tastes great tool It also has zero carbs for those of you watching your carb intake. It can be found at most any supplement store and even comes in 7 lb tubs at some stores and at Netrition.com which saves me quite a bit of money since I go through so much of it. It mixes better than most other powders as well (no clumps).

  14. Kristy  October 17, 2012

    Oh my gosh, these were amazing! Perfect middle of the week, quick, super healthy, super tasty dinner to feed myself and toddler while the hubby was out of town! He missed out on a great dinner:)

    • Skinny Ms.  October 18, 2012

      Kristy, Thanks so much! One of my favs too!! 🙂

  15. Lisa Carlisle  January 26, 2013

    to get the nutritional content just write down the nutrition facts for each ingredient then divide it by the number of servings.

  16. Alicia  February 24, 2013

    i entered as written, using Optimum Nutrition's gold standard whey (vanilla) and instead of flax, used chia seeds. Nutrtional info:

    383 cals, 37g carbs, 6g fat, 42g protein, 7g sugar, 272mg sodium.

  17. Carly  March 3, 2013

    These were so delicious! I didn't have greek yogurt, so I used kefir. It was a smidgeon runny so I added about a tbsp. oat flour. SO SO SO good. Thank you for your site. I'm smitten! I've lost nearly 100 pounds and new, interesting recipes are now mandatory for me to keep going! 🙂

    • Skinny Ms.  March 3, 2013

      Carly, WOW…CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Thank you so much. 🙂

  18. Meghan  June 10, 2013

    Can you omit the protein powder?

    • Skinny Ms.  June 11, 2013

      Meghan, Yes!

      • DebHix  August 4, 2013

        Do you need to substitute something for the protein powder? Or can I just omit and continue with the rest of recipe as written?

  19. Flo  October 12, 2013

    I doubled the recipe and mixed in my Vitamix. What a mistake. The batter was like cement. Also, no salt? These were tasteless. I did get a lot of exercise in trying to clean up the mess after. If I ever made this again (doubtful), I'd probably add water to thin the batter, and never try it in a Vitamix.

  20. Siana  March 28, 2014

    This is the best recepie for protein-oatmeal pancakes! I kept the proportions and for my pleasant surprise the pancakes burned out sooo fluffly! Its delicious!

  21. Amanda  May 7, 2014

    These were *alright*, but not fluffy like a normal pancakes. I mixed in a magic bullet which normally makes pancake batter very fluffly but the result was much more like a heavy crepe.

    Taste was okay but if I make it again in the future I'll change a few things!

  22. GeGe  November 24, 2014

    Sounds good, where does one buy protein powder,?

  23. Rhosel  July 1, 2015

    Hi I want to make this right now but i don't have a greek yogurt and cinnamon any substitute?

    • SkinnyMs  July 2, 2015

      A good sub for Greek yogurt could be cottage cheese, sour cream, kefir, or buttermilk. Cinnamon can be omitted, or you can use
      Allspice, instead.

  24. Kris B  January 6, 2018

    I just plugged this into the Recipe Builder and with the new WW freestyle, it is 7 SmartPoints, using nonfat Greek yogurt instead of regular.

  25. Alex  September 7, 2018

    Don’t know what went wrong. Made them this morning, and the batter was waaay to thick. I added some milk to fix that. Then when I made the skillet “griddle hot” and sprayed it with oil, it made the outside of the pancakes burn quickly, but they were still not done on the inside…((( even though they were pretty thin.

    • Nichole Furlong  September 8, 2018

      Hi Alex, this pancake batter will be a little more think than a regular batter. I would also recommend lowering the temperature of your skillet. Your skillet was most likely too hot if the cakes were burning quickly and not cooked in the center. The temperature should be a medium setting.

  26. Marne  November 12, 2018

    I hust made them and had the exact same experience as Alex. I’m tried mixing the batter in my Ninja. The batter was very thick. It was really hard to scrape it all out the Ninja. I just ate them and they were quite a bit burnt on the outside but the inside felt like they were not cooked. Any suggestions? I made the recipe almost exactly as written except I realized my egg whites had expired so I used egg substitute instead.

    • Nichole Furlong  November 13, 2018

      Hi Marne, you can try adding a little water to thin the batter and use a lower temperature skillet!

  27. Clementine  June 28, 2020

    These were ok but lacked flavor. The pancakes did cook through despite the texture, which was a bit thick for my liking. I was hoping these would be sweet enough to eat without syrup but that was not the case. Thank you anyway.
