Blueberry Almond Protein Pancakes are low carb and gluten free, yet will satisfy your cravings for pancakes in a healthy way. They are absolutely bursting with blueberries. So much so, you really don’t need to add much syrup to these pancakes.
Plus, these pancakes have protein powder added in. If you’re like me and you struggle to get enough protein, this is a huge bonus.
Blueberry Almond Protein Pancakes are so scrumptious, it’s hard to believe there’s no flour in them. Instead almond meal is used along with a banana (very ripe), an egg, some almond butter, vanilla protein powder, and cinnamon and almond extract for flavoring.
This recipe is definitely not the type of recipe I usually post. That is- it’s healthy. Now I love a good old southern casserole, a biscuit slathered with butter, and a slab of pie. But I can’t eat that way all the time. So I’ve decided to share some of the healthy things I eat too.
Ordinarily if I want pancakes for breakfast, I want Buttermilk Pancakes. But if the pants are fitting a little snug as they usually do after the holidays, these Blueberry Almond Protein Pancakes are a good alternative.
I love how full of blueberries they are and the almond butter and banana give then just enough sweetness that you only need a touch of maple syrup.
Note: You can buy almond meal at some grocery stores or you can buy Almond Meal online. You can also make your own by grinding whole almonds until finely ground.
Blueberry Almond Protein Pancakes

- 1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/2 cup blueberries

- Mix all ingredients in a bowl, adding blueberries last so they don’t get smashed.

- Using 1/4 cup measuring cup, pour batter onto griddle. Cook until undersides are browned, flip and cook until pancakes are set all the way through.
- Serve with maple syrup.

I made these this morning and they were difficult to turn, so watery. I added some Chia seeds and more almond flour to it and they turned out very good.
Thanks for the sharing your tips for making the recipe work for you Tammy!
Waste of ingredients!!! These pancakes are super mushy that you can’t even flip. I don’t recommend this recipe to anyone!
