  • 1 C (120g) Bisquick or your choice of pancake mix
  • 2 scoops (56g) Whey Protein Powder vanilla*
  • 3/4-1 C (180-240mL) Skim Milk or your choice of milk


  1. Mix the pancake mix and protein powder together in a bowl before stirring in the milk. Start on the lower end of the milk and add as needed depending on the protein powder you're using.

  2. Stir until everything is just mixed without any major lumps. Overmixing will make your pancakes flat.

  3. Heat a pan or griddle over medium-high heat with nonstick cooking spray. You may need to test your stovetop for best results.

  4. Slowly pour 1/4 cup circles in the pan, pouring into the center of the circle for symmetrical pancakes.

  5. Cook for about 2 minutes before checking the edges. If you can see the golden brown ring around the edge, flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes until the pancakes are cooked through. (This is where testing your stovetop comes in. Too much heat will brown the bottom before the centers cook through, creating a gooey center. Too little heat will cook through before you can flip.)

  6. Top with butter, syrup, and your choice of toppings.

Recipe Notes

*Feel free to get creative with different flavors and fillings. One of my favorites has been hazelnut flavored protein powder with chocolate chips.
