Recipe for Four-Ingredient Protein Pancakes from Willow Bird Baking
Four-Ingredient Protein Pancakes

Okay, I did it. I went to a hot yoga class.

Some context: I’m trying to be healthier. I’m trying to get more fruits and veggies in my diet, trying to exercise more often and in different ways. So when this coupon popped into my inbox for hot yoga classes, I bought it.

And then I realized just buying it doesn’t actually do anything. You actually have to go to the class or whatever. Oh.

But yesterday, after hemming and hawing about it for days on Facebook, I finally did it! (My Facebook friends will probably be relieved to hear this news. Or they will not care at all, just like they didn’t care about my 800 anxious yoga posts, and could I please stop talking about yoga already, and also who am I? Did we go to high school together or something? Ah, Facebook.) Anyway, I don’t even really get what I did, but I did it! Here’s how it went down:

I got there super early so I could ask a billion questions and scope out the space. This was a good idea, because otherwise I might’ve missed the cubbies and the posted expectations (for instance, no talking in the yoga room). Two girls apparently had this exact problem, since they conducted a loud conversation right behind someone who was clearly trying to zen out. Gauche, ladies. Real gauche. (Read this as: I had to find some way to feel superior, since I was about to discover my very limited talents in plenty of other areas. Like bending and flexing and . . . breathing.)

Thankfully, my friends had coached me to buy a hot yoga towel. I saw other folks using regular towels and that probably would’ve been okay, but hot yoga towels are designed specifically to get more grippy when they’re wet instead of less. Nobody wants to fall on their face in the middle of their first hot yoga class.

I was also glad I brought a hand towel, because dripping all over the place during a camel pose or a wombat pose or whatever (I’m making all of this up. I have no idea.) gets distracting.

Once I was finally settled into the room for class (with my hot yoga towel covering my mat and my giant water bottle by my side) I got the impression that it wasn’t going to be as tropical as I had imagined. It was actually pretty relaxing, loungin’ in Shavasana, centering my awareness or dreaming about lunch or whatever I was doing. But (you might already guess what’s coming) that all changed once we actually had to move.

I started with the beginner class, but oh man. Holding chair pose (that’s probably not its real name) with no actual chair in the vicinity and no indication of when couch potato pose or dessert pose or something more palatable might be coming? All while perspiring profusely? Turns out that’s hard.

I at least attempted every pose (and only almost fell into my neighbor once.) And you know, I’m not sure what hot yoga is even for, exactly — why doesn’t someone open a window, again? what does emulating a rocking horse do for me? — but it was a nice experience! I felt rejuvenated and strong and more . . . bendy.

I don’t believe in “releasing toxins” besides what my liver and kidneys already do, but my skin did look all glowy and nice afterward, so that’s cool. But my most important accomplishment was challenging my body. And not challenging it like I do with the intensity of a frenetic Zumba class, which I also love, but in the strange, comforting, peaceful way yoga does. And in a really hot room.

So there you have it: my hot yoga experience! Have you ever tried it? Tell me all about it. What’d you think?

And while I’m sharing that part of my health journey, here’s another: a super quick and healthy snack that takes just a few ingredients to prepare. You can actually make these Four-Ingredient Protein Pancakes with just a banana and eggs, but I used Our Best Bites’ adaptation of adding baking powder. I also added some whey protein just to pump up the health factor a little more. They’re not exactly like real pancakes — they’re more crêpey — but they’re a healthier everyday option.

Prep time
Cook time

Unbelievable. These little "pancakes" can be made with just two ingredients, but I've added some baking powder and whey protein in this recipe. They're a super quick and healthy breakfast or snack. They come out with almost a crêpe texture. You can add vanilla extract, cinnamon, cardamom -- whatever you want! You can also ditch the protein if you're not looking to supplement yours. Each pancake is just around 30 calories!
Serves: 9-10 3-inch pancakes
  • 1 large banana (it should yield about 1/3 - 1/2 cup, mashed)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder (optional but recommended)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla whey protein powder (optional; you can also add a touch of vanilla extract instead)
  1. Place a medium skillet over medium heat on the stove. Let it heat up while you prepare the pancakes. It's ready when water dropped into the pan sizzles.
  2. To prepare the pancakes, mash the banana well with a couple of forks. Add the eggs, baking powder, and protein powder (if using) and whisk until well combined. Spray the skillet with nonstick cooking spray before adding in 2-3 tablespoons of the pancake mixture (I used a sprayed metal ring to make mine so round -- if you don't want to bother, they'll just be a little wonky shaped.)
  3. Let the pancakes cook for 25-30 seconds before flipping and letting the other side cook for the same amount of time. Remove to a plate and serve with nut butter, sugar-free syrup, butter, fruit, or whatever you'd like!

    Oh this is hilarious! I have never enjoyed yoga. My friend thinks I should try hot yoga but I keep avoiding it. Chair pose is hard enough in an air conditioned room!However, you did give me an idea. One of the reasons I don’t like yoga is that my hands sweat and things start slipping. Maybe I need a hot yoga mat.

      Your post made me chuckle. I also hate regular yoga, but I was convinced to try hot yoga (which I wasn’t keen on at all, but it was a boy I liked lol. Anyway, now I love it. The yoga towel over the mat makes 100% difference. Make sure its not a regular towel they stretch and are a nightmare.

          Could I use a plant based protein powder instead of a whey based protein powder? Will it change consistency?

    I just started working out again this week and tried a version of this recipe I found on another blog minus the protein powder which was a huge mistake because I was so hungry afterwards : ) Gotta get me some protein powder.

    Count me in for pancakes, count me out for hot yoga. Ha! I’m pretty sure I would pass out. I do believe in the toxin release- but I would rather relax in a sauna or get a wrap at the spa!

    I am way too unbendy and uncoordinated to have jumped into a hot yoga class where everyone knew what was going on except me. Brava! Thank goodness I started when my instructor was just learning herself. Now I need to figure out why we never do the couch potato pose–I think I could master that in an instant. But first I need some pancakes!

    That’s awesome that you tried something out of your comfort zone! I’ve been trying some new classes too and although its freaky at first, it’s fun! These sound quick and easy and I love the idea of adding the protien powder so you can stay full longer. Great idea!

    I would love to try hot yoga but I have so much anxiety about any kind of group exercise class. Gahhhh. I’m going to use you as inspiration though and if a Groupon comes through my inbox, I’m going for it.

    Love these! I’ve been just doing banana + egg pancakes but I bet the vanilla protein powder made them extra delicious!

    I love a good pancake recipe and I’ll have to try these.

    This is amazing! Hot yoga has always instilled fear in my heart because humidity is my arch enemy. But maybe I will brave it, if only to get out of the winter cold 🙂 Also, these protein pancakes are winning on every level!

    Pancakes are my favorite breakfast and I love starting my day with protein. Can’t wait to try these! I fell in love with yoga a few years ago after spending years thinking I would hate it. I’ve never done a hot yoga class, but have been trying to work up the courage to give it a try. I don’t do well with heat and I’m so worried that I will pass out!

    I can’t wait to make these, my boys will gobble them up. I like to make big batches of pancakes and freeze them and these look they’ll work great for that.

    My husband and I are health conscious so can’t wait to try your protein pancakes. I love the versatility of the recipe and will make a batch soon. Thanks for sharing this new version of pancakes with us. Patricia Russo

    great recipe! I added 1T of coconut flour to thicken the batter up a tinsy bit and blueberries for fun 🙂 I can
    Honestly say that I won’t be missing the real deal. These are amazing AND I don’t have to feel like I “cheated” after having them! Thank u for this recipe!

  21. Kristina
    June 28, 2015 at 8:54 pm (8 years ago)

    could you freeze these after making them?

    • Julie Ruble
      June 28, 2015 at 9:32 pm (8 years ago)

      Kristina, I haven’t tried it so I can’t vouch for it. If I froze them, I’d wrap them well individually and then thaw overnight in the fridge and warm up just a few seconds in the microwave to avoid a rubbery texture. Enjoy!

    I’m STILL LAUGHING about the yoga!!!! My daughter has taught hot yoga for several years and loves it.
    I have ZERO coordination and I can’t concentrate on a pose AND my breathing at the same time!!!
    I cannot wait to try these pancakes, they sound yummy

  23. Jane
    July 27, 2015 at 7:48 pm (8 years ago)

    Do you approximately how many grams of protein are in a pancake?

    • Julie Ruble
      July 27, 2015 at 8:50 pm (8 years ago)

      Sorry, Jane, I’m not sure! I always use SparkPeople’s recipe nutrition calculator for these sorts of questions, but it will depend on what sort of protein powder you choose.

  24. kristen

    Have you ever used an egg replacer in this recipe? I wonder how it would fare?

    • Julie Ruble
      August 3, 2015 at 10:22 am (8 years ago)

      Hi Kristen! I haven’t tried it and my hunch is that it wouldn’t work, since the egg is the main and only binder here, but you never know!

  25. Rachel
    August 20, 2015 at 9:24 pm (8 years ago)

    I have tried a few healthy protein pancake recipes and they’ve all been pretty gross but these are truly DELICIOUS and sooo easy! I added some berries to mine and topped them with strawberries and rice malt syrup 🙂

  26. Amanda
    August 27, 2015 at 11:19 am (8 years ago)

    These are delicious. I was naughty and added chocolate chips. In hindsight, I also would have included a dash of salt.

  27. Nicole
    September 23, 2015 at 2:33 pm (8 years ago)

    Do you think this would work with a pea/ vegan protein powder? I am allergic to whey

      Yes, I think so!

    These pancakes sound so yummy! And I just bought a new brand of protein which is super delicious so I am really excited to try these out!

    Do you think you could sub one of the whole eggs, say for 2-3 egg whites instead. Or would that be too runny?

    Also could you blend all the ingredients as opposed to mashing and whisking (lazy chef life lol).


    • Julie Ruble
      December 10, 2015 at 8:55 pm (7 years ago)

      I haven’t tried these adaptations, so I’m not sure, Rachel! If you try them, let me know.

      That is too bad! Sorry that happened, Minique — it hasn’t happened to me and I’m not sure what the issue could’ve been. Was the mixture well combined? Was the skillet hot enough?

      They probably won’t be particularly pretty and round and less you use a sprayed metal cookie cutter or something to cook them in. I used a metal ring.

    Is anyone familiar with food tracking on the app my fitness app? I’m having a hard time figuring out how to add these pancakes into Mt my app. Also, I made my pancakes in bulk, I made 50 of them and froze them so they could be a quick and easy source of protien as I’m headed to work. Just need to figure out how to get it put in my fitness app! Thanks for any help! Much appreciated

    January 10, 2016 at 8:33 am (7 years ago)

    I make a version of these weekly and my girls love them! I have not tried protein powder but I use a a bit of old fashioned oats to add bulk to fill u up a bit more. And a bit of honey. No syrup needed for these! I’ll be adding protein powder next time for sure!!!

    Hi, I love this recipe. Have you ever made a batch and reheated the next day? I was thinking of making some & taking to work & heat in the microwave for my breakfast. Kind regards

    • Julie Ruble
      January 31, 2016 at 10:15 am (7 years ago)

      I’ve never tried it, but my suspicion is that it would be soggy upon reheating because it’s primarily composed of egg. If I tried it, I would freeze them and then reheat. Let us know if you try it.

      Yes. I edit for things like brightness and white balance, but all my photos are representative. I’m also very careful in preparation to ensure things look nice — hence cooking these in a ring to attain a round shape.

    These pancakes were so simple to make and the most delicious!!! I usually use a ton of butter and syrup on my pancakes, but with this recipe I didn’t need either!! Also, they are so healthy. So happy I found a healthy alternative to regular pancakes. I will be using this recipe from now on. Thank you!!!????????

      I’m sorry to hear that. They are enjoyed by my family and others, so do you think something could’ve gone wrong? I’m happy to help you troubleshoot the issue. I will say that with just a few flavors (banana, protein powder), you must like each one to enjoy these. For instance, someone who doesn’t like bananas might not enjoy the taste.

    The second time I made this (first time they were amazing), I used egg whites instead of eggs (I used 3 whites for the 2 eggs) and they turned out perfect!

  48. Jen
    September 4, 2016 at 9:11 am (7 years ago)

    These tasted great, but they were hard to flip! Still runny on the top and kind of fell apart. I didn’t use protein powder- would that help?

  49. Jo
    September 15, 2016 at 12:44 pm (7 years ago)

    I made these this morning and they were DELICIOUS. I had a hard time flipping them, so they came out funky-shaped, but I’m a notoriously poor pancake-flipper to begin with. Now I’m wondering how the batter would do in my waffle maker.. perhaps I will try tomorrow!

  50. Biba M
    December 18, 2016 at 12:21 pm (6 years ago)

    Taste is not bad, but basically I got scrambled eggs with banana with slight vanilla flavour.. Those are not pancakes, because there is nothing to hold it together, they fall apart as soon as you try to flip them. It looks like scrambled eggs, tastes like eggs with banana. Sorry…

    • Julie Ruble
      December 18, 2016 at 3:13 pm (6 years ago)

      Biba, they certainly taste different than regular pancakes, but I think if you’re getting “scrambled eggs with banana,” you might want to try mixing more. Hope that works out for you.

    January 3, 2017 at 9:35 pm (6 years ago)

    For the 2 tablespoons of whey, is that in proportion to the scooper? Or did you use a normal tablespoon? Did you level the scoop or compress it? Thank you

    • Julie Ruble
      January 3, 2017 at 9:51 pm (6 years ago)

      I used a tablespoon and leveled.

  52. Michelle
    January 6, 2017 at 10:12 am (6 years ago)

    I made these and they turned out really good. I used:
    1 large banana medium ripe
    2 eggs
    Large handful of oatmeal
    2 tbsp vanilla protein powder
    Capfull of vanilla
    Pinch of salt
    2 shakes of cinnamon

    Mixed ingredients w a fork
    Sprayed pan w cooking spray
    Made silver dollar sized pancakes
    They flipped over easily … I Cooked about 45 min on each side.

    What’s the key for them to be easier to turn? My first couple of tries were rough… I mixed everthing very well… maybe I should leave the mix a little more thick so it won’t crumble? I used the same ingredients you put here except the whey.

    I would appreciate your help 🙂

      Hi Daemon,

      My best tip is to keep them small — mine are 3-inches in diameter, so the whole spatula fits underneath them. Then really let them cook on the first side until they are bubbly so that you assure the first side is pretty solidly cooked. Mixing them well is also key, so I wouldn’t try to leave it with chunks. I hope that helps! So glad you enjoyed them.

        You’re right, I probably did mine too big, the spatula didn’t fit very well so it just crumbled. I’ll definitely try a smaller one next time.

        Thanks for the tip!

    How long will it last in the freezer as a meal prep?

      Unfortunately I don’t think these would freeze well. They’re very delicate.

    Have you ever made the batter ahead of time and uses it later? I’m looking for something protein packed and filling to carry into a yurt and it would be nice to pre-mix everything and just put it in a poor container and carry it in 🙂

      I’ve never tried it so I’m not sure how it will work! If you do try, let us know how it goes!

    Does anyone know the macros on these? If not, I can figure it out!! Thanks!

    I’m fasting this month so this is a great recipe for me. Any idea on how to thicken up the batter. Mine tasted good but were falling apart. Also, is it better to cook on medium heat? Thanks!

      That might work — I also keep them very small (3 inches diameter) so they’re easy to turn because the whole spatula fits under.

    These were basically banana flavored scrambled eggs.

      Sorry you felt that way. Glad plenty of people enjoy them.

    I just made these for dinner last night to fix a craving. I loved them! The texture is surprisingly perfect. I used protein powder, and can’t imagine how they’d turn out without it. With it, they were perfect! I need to go buy more bananas and let them get super ripe so I can do it again! (Confession: I ate them all myself. )

    The ripeness of the bananas could be the issue for some people. I think the more ripe the banana, the less resistant starch it has to hold the pancake together.

    Bananas are not low carb just for anyone on an Atkins diet

      People count their total number of net carbs, and “low-carb” is relative depending on their needs.

    Next time I will use a mixer or blender to get them smoother. I did find the texture to be very eggy. Mainly I am looking for high protein breakfasts so want to give these another try.
