So what makes this a healthy pancake recipe? Let’s check out the stats (lovin’ the lists today):
- 10-13 grams of protein per pancake (see recipe notes)
- made with 100% whole grains
- made with no refined flours
- made with no refined sugars
A healthy pancake recipe doesn’t always equal delicious pancakes, but these are healthy and delicious. Oh, and did I mention easy? If you think homemade pancakes are a drag, think again. These are made with just a few ingredients and you can make the batter in your blender!
These are some of the most hearty and filling pancakes ever. Must be the protein. These will definitely fill you up and keep you full all morning long.

Healthy Pancake Recipe
- Total Time: 13 mins
- Yield: 5 1x
These healthy pancakes are so easy and boast 10-13 grams of protein per pancake!
- 1–2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats*
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons agave nectar (can sub honey, maple syrup, sucunat, or coconut sugar)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- coconut oil, butter,or oil of choice
- Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until very smooth.
- Heat a pan with about 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
- Pour a small amount of batter into the pan. Cook about 4-5 minutes on the first side and 2-3 minutes on the second side.
- Repeat until all the batter is gone (or cook them all on one large griddle)
*After receiving feedback that the pancakes were too thin for some people, I tested the amount of oats. If you like thicker pancakes, use 2 cups of oats, for thinner pancakes 1 cup of oats is perfect. Nutritional information listed is for 1 cups of oats. If you use 2 cups of oats, 1 pancake (out of 5) is 223 calories and 13 grams of protein.
