Fresh and Fruity Protein Pancake Recipe


- 1 cup whole wheat flour

- 1 scoop Healthy Heights KidzProtein Vanilla Protein Powder

- 1 tablespoon baking powder

- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup

- 1 cup almond milk (or any milk of your choice)

- 1 egg

- 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Zest of 1 lemon

- Fresh berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries) for topping

- Maple syrup for drizzling (optional)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey or maple syrup, almond milk, egg, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and lemon zest.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease with coconut oil or cooking spray.
  5. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the skillet as needed.
  7. Serve the pancakes warm, topped with fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup if desired.
