I’m almost always making protein filled pancakes.While they are very delicious, sometimes you just need a heartier pancake.
I am sharing with you one of my favorite oatmeal recipes that is perfect for your family’s Sunday morning breakfast. I usually make these for my fiancé and I on the weekends.
I like to prepare the batter over night (you made need to add just a smidge extra liquid in the morning) or wait about 30 minutes before cooking so the oats can absorb all the liquid. They are very nutritious and filling.
These do still have protein powder, just not as much. If you want, you can even omit the protien powder* all together and just add another tablespoon of flour. Simple.
Feel free to double (or triple!) this batch for a bigger crowd or why not save some for later? These pancakes freeze well once cooked and last in the fridge for about 3-4 days. Sunday Morning Oatmeal Pancakes (serves two)
- 1 Cup GF [Quick] Oats
- 2 Tbsps GF Flour (or flour of choice)
- 2 Tbsps Vanilla Protein Powder*
- 1 tsp Stevia (or sugar of choice)
- 1/2 Cup Light Vanilla Soy Milk (or milk of choice)
- 1 tsp Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 Large Egg, Whisked
- 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
- Dash of Sea Salt
- 1 tsp Chia Seeds (Optional)
Take first four dry ingredients and place into a bowl. Take the remaining ingredients and whisk together; add to dry ingredients and blend well. On a low-medium flame, cook pancake on stovetop.
Wait until pancake bottom is golden brown to flip and repeat cooking on other side. Remove from stove top and let cool, repeat til batter is done (makes about 4-5 pancakes).

I made these a couple of weeks ago and you won’t believe how amazing and decadent these babies are.
Behold chocolate chia protein superfood pancakes using Shakeology.
Why did I start using Shakeology? Not going to lie, I was skeptical and saw it as a new fad. But after trying it out for a couple of weeks, I fell in love.Not only does it taste great, it offers so much goodness like nutrients, vitamins, proteins, minerals, probiotics, digestive ezymes and more! My tummy has never felt better and I haven’t needed to take my daily probiotic, since it’s *ehem* helping me stay regular.
