Orange Creamsicle Protein Pancakes

By: Heather Powers

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10-15 minutes

Ingredients (Serves 1)

For the Pancakes:

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (mine was approx. 1/3 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (or a bit more protein powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
  • 5-7 drops NuNaturals Orange Stevia (or orange extract or more orange zest)

For the Creamsicle Topping:

  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (can use low-fat or fat-free)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 3-5 drops NuNaturals Orange Stevia (or orange extract or more orange zest)
  • 1/2 orange cut into 1/2 inch rounds (optional)
  • Orange marmalade, thinned with water (optional)


For the Pancakes:

  • Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle to medium heat.
  • Add egg white to blender and allow to blend for 2-3 minutes or until white and foamy.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine flours, protein powder, and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl, combine milk, orange zest, stevia, and egg white.
  • Transfer wet ingredients to dry ingredients and carefully stir until all the flour is incorporated (careful not to overstir).
  • Pour batter onto skillet/griddle (mine made three medium-sized cakes) and allow to cook 5-7 minutes per side or until golden brown (batter will not bubble).

For the Orange Creamsicle Topping:

  • Whisk together Greek yogurt, coconut flour, and stevia in a bowl.
  • Slice rinds off of orange rounds, add to skillet, and cook about 30 seconds on each side.
  • Layer yogurt and orange slices on top of each pancake and drizzle with thinned marmalade.

Pre-topping stats:

Over 30 grams of protein? What?!

You could always use your favorite pancake syrup and forego the “orange creamsicle” topping, but c’mon, would you really wanna miss out on this?

Yeah, I didn’t think so!

  2. Ohhhhh… this is happening this week. I appreciate your persistence – from them looks of it all those fails paid off big time!

    P.S. I have the makings of your Peaches ‘n Cream Parfait in my fridge for tomorrow. 🙂

    • I just made these. I think I love you. just a couple of mods: added 1 tsp chia, only used 1 T WW flour, 1/4 C almond milk, lemon extract rather than zest (I am out of oranges).

      Life. Freaking. Changing. Mwah!

        Omg, YAY!!! I was a little worried about the measurements since all protein scoops aren’t created equal (that’s why I put a cup estimate to mine). So glad you were able to make some modifications and still have them turn out okay. And I’m SO happy that you tried them! Like seriously, I have goofy smile on my face RIGHT NOW! Lol
