  • 1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour can also use whole wheat flour, gluten free flour, or oat flour
  • ¼ cup Vegan Unflavored Protein Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup


  • 1 Banana, Sliced
  • ½ cup Plain Coconut Yogurt
  • ¼ cup Crushed Walnuts
  • Maple Syrup


  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together the almond milk and apple cider vinegar. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Add all ingredients into a high speed food processor and blend until smooth. Allow the batter to sit for 10 minutes before using.
  • Heat a skillet over a medium heat and lightly spray with olive oil.
  • When hot, add ¼ cup of batter to the skillet and cook until bubbles begin to appear.
  • Turn the pancake over and continue to cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Serve topped with coconut yogurt, crushed walnuts, sliced bananas and a drizzle of maple syrup.




  • Allow the batter to sit for 10 minutes before using.
  • Using a ¼ cup to measure out the batter ensures consistency and even sized pancakes.
  • Optional toppings to serve with pancakes are fresh berries, whipped coconut cream, vegan chocolate chips or even vegan chocolate sauce.
  • Store the pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for 2 months.
  • To make this recipe gluten free substitute the all purpose flour for gluten free flour.
  • Any plant based milk will work in this recipe.
  • When choosing a protein powder, try to pick one that's organic, that has no artificial colors or flavors added, that's low in sugar (or uses monk fruit or stevia as a sweetener), and has 20 grams of protein per serving. For adults, these are my protein powder picks, and if you're making this recipe for kids, I recommend using one of these kid friendly protein powders!
