I don’t just love pancakes, I’m a fanatic.

When I was just a little Viking Beast, I used to go to my grandparents during school lunch breaks.

I was super skinny and disliked food in general, except the heavenly pancakes from my grandmother. I survived on those.

Turns out those pancakes were just pre-packaged pancake mixes from the store, with a sprinkle of grandmother magic of some kind.

Many things changed over the years, but my deep love for pancakes never went away.

I’ve experimented with many protein pancake variations, and today I want to share how you can make them completely vegan.

Being vegan doesn’t have to mean you can’t enjoy delicious, healthy, and heavenly baked protein pancakes.

Grab your favorite popcorn machine, pop some kernels, and enjoy this vegan protein pancake recipe.

Vegan Protein Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients in Vegan Protein Pancakes

How to make Vegan Chocolate Protein Pancakes

Vegan chocolate protein pancakes are not just super tasty (if you like chocolate of course), but cocoa powder is also a real superfood.

It has plenty of health benefits and is the primary source of a substance called epicatechin.

You can read more about epicatechin here, it’s really good for fitness/ bodybuilding purposes as well.

How to make Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes

Peanut butter is not only delicious but also a very good source of healthy fats.

This will make the vegan protein pancakes a more well-rounded meal because as described above it’s mainly high in carbohydrates and proteins.

How to calculate the calories in Vegan Protein Pancakes

The vegan protein pancakes as described above are 600 calories.

They have 42 grams of proteins, 69 grams of carbohydrates, 13 grams of fiber, and 14 grams of fat.

I used unsweetened almond milk and left out the cacao powder, and peanut butter.

You can split it into two portions, depending on the number of calories/ proteins you'd like to eat.

If you wish to calculate the exact amount of calories in your custom (chocolate) vegan protein pancakes, but you don’t know how, well I’ve you covered.

I’ve written an in-depth article that explains how you can easily track the calories of all your foods using an app called MyFitnessPal. You can find it here.

Make Vegan Protein Pancakes lower in calories

If you’re on a lower-calorie diet or simply want to save more calories for later, here is what you can do:

  • Decrease the amount of almond/ all-purpose flour
  • Decrease the number of chia seeds
  • Decrease the number of pumpkin seeds
  • Use unsweetened almond milk (lowest calorie plant-based milk)

Make sure to use less milk if you cut back on the flour, otherwise, it won’t bake as good.

Make Vegan Protein Pancakes higher in calories

If you want more calories (to bulk up) or a more well-rounded meal, then here’s what you can do:

  • Add (a lot) of peanut butter (healthy fats/ a lot of calories)
  • Add more cacao powder
  • Add more flour
  • Add oats
  • You can go for higher calorie plant-based kinds of milk

Use more milk as you add new/ more ingredients, otherwise, the vegan protein pancake batter won’t mix properly.

Add more proteins to Vegan Protein Pancakes

As a vegan, it’s harder to get in enough protein in a day, especially if you’re a fitness enthusiast and require even more.

If you want to further increase the protein in this recipe, then your best bet is to increase the amount of vegan protein powder.

Make sure to add some more milk, so the vegan protein pancake batter will still mix all right.

How to make Vegan Protein Pancakes

Vegan protein pancakes are easy and simple to bake. Here’s how:

  1. Take a big bowl and a hand mixer
  2. Add all the dry ingredients, and then add your preferred plant-based milk.
  3. Mix till smooth, and let it rest for a couple of minutes while pre-heating a pan on maxed-out fire (I’m kind of impatient).
  4. Cover the pan with zero-calorie cooking spray, coconut oil, or extra virgin olive oil.
  5. Change the heat to a medium setting, and pour in the vegan protein pancake batter.
  6. Wait a couple of minutes till the first side is done, flip it over, and wait another couple of minutes before your delicious vegan protein pancakes are done.
  7. Repeat till you’re completely out of vegan protein pancake batter.

Pro tip: use multiple pans for an increase in speed.
