Light And Fluffy Original Protein Pancakes

Looking for a good old-fashioned pancake recipe? Worried about carbs? No problem! With Nutralean, clean eating is a breeze! This low-carb whey protein powder is ideal for making delicious fluffy pancakes, diet shakes, energy bars, and much more! We have actually used it in this guilt-free pancake recipe, which tastes like heaven in your mouth!

Ready in just 20 minutes, these old-fashioned pancakes are light, fluffy, and full of flavor, with a hint of sweetness. They’re made with real butter and have less than 100 calories per serving. Did I mention they're carb-free? 

Whether you're serving them for breakfast, a healthy lunch, or dinner, it's no need to worry about your waistline. These high-protein pancakes will satisfy your cravings and keep you lean. They only require a few ingredients you've probably have in your kitchen right now. It's a perfect choice for when you're short on time and want to make a quick, filling meal or snack.

For extra flavor, use Vanilla Cream Nutralean. It’s the best tasting whey protein powder you'll ever come across! On top of that, it keeps hunger at bay and promotes weight loss. Add it to your favorite recipes to burn more calories and stay full longer.

Coconut flour, one of the key ingredients in this fluffy pancake recipe, is chock-full of fiber, healthy fats, and protein. Unlike grain flour, it doesn't raise your blood sugar levels or trigger insulin spikes.

Additionally, it boasts five times more fiber than wheat flour and aids in digestion. Its glycemic index is extremely low. Since it has no gluten, it's perfect for those with gluten sensitivity or Celiac disease as well as for diabetics. Also, it causes no inflammation or bloating as it happens with wheat flour.

Our recipe also calls for butter, which is loaded with fat-soluble vitamins. It contains vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin K, and other nutrients that protect against chronic illnesses. For instance, vitamin K lowers your risk of coronary artery disease and osteoporosis.

Butter is also an excellent source of short and medium chain fatty acids. Your body uses these fats for energy. They suppress hunger, increase fat burning, and prevent obesity. Butyrate, a fatty acid in butter, raises energy expenditure and improves insulin response. It also boasts anti-inflammatory properties and supports digestive health.

This high-protein pancake recipe is so simple that even a child can make it! It’s perfect for those lazy mornings when you want to pamper yourself with a savory, healthy treat.
Now let's see what it takes to make these fluffy high-protein pancakes:


  • 3 scoops Vanilla Cream Nutralean
  • 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut, soy, or almond milk (unsweetened)



  1. Melt the butter or coconut oil in a microwave oven and let it cool.
  2. Add all ingredients into a blender. Mix well.
  3. Pour the batter into a preheated skillet greased with coconut or olive oil.
  4. Flip with a spatula when bubbles break the surface.
  5. Cook until brown on both sides
  6. Enjoy!


*Replace Vanilla Cream Nutralean with Natural Nutraleanfor a less sweet flavor, or use Chocolate Dream Nutraleanfor a yummy chocolate dessert.


*Top with berries, nuts, extra dark chocolate chips, or sugar-free syrup if desired.

This recipe shows 1/4 cup butter twice. Is this a mistake or does this recipe actually use 1/2 cup of butter?
