Snickerdoodle Protein Pancakes

Oh yeah, I did it again…

It seemed to me that last week’s oatmeal raisinΒ panCOOKIESΒ simplyΒ had too much fun and well, with a few of you guys mentioning a love for the cinnamon-sugar classic,
I just couldn’t resist!

And let’s face it, we food bloggers DO have a thing for cinnamon, don’t we?

So…who wants a cookie? πŸ˜‰

Snickerdoodle Protein Pancakes

By: Heather @Β Kiss My Broccoli

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes

Cook Time: 10-12 minutes

Keywords: fry breakfast dairy-free high protein no sugar added oats protein powder cinnamon coconut flour Pancake Sunday

Ingredients (Serves 1)

For Cinnamon Syrup

  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Pancakes

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats, ground into flour
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut flour*
  • 1 scoop (30g) vanilla protein powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sodium-free baking powder
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon butter extract (optional, but recommended)
  • Note: Can sub coconut flour with the same amount of ground flax. Just decrease the amount of milk to 1/4 cup. The texture will be a bit different (not as soft/moist) but still tasty!


For Cinnamon Syrup

Whisk together syrup and cinnamon in a small bowl until all of the cinnamon is incorporated.

For the Pancakes

1. Preheat a skillet or griddle to medium heat and coat with cooking spray.
2. Combine flours, protein powder, cinnamon, and baking powder.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk egg white until frothy.
4. Add milk and extracts to egg, stir.
5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir well.
6. Spoon batter onto hot skillet, forming 4 small-medium sized pancakes.
7. Cook 5-6 minutes per side or until golden brown.
8. Transfer to plate and top with butter and cinnamon syrup.

Nutrition facts for pancakes only*:

*The protein powder that I use is 110 calories with 25g of protein per 30g scoop.

Like I mentioned in the recipe, Β ground flax can be used instead of the coconut flour. Just be sure to decrease the amount of milk you use to 1/4 cup.

BUT if you CAN get your hands on some coconut flour,
it makes a HUGE difference!

A soft, fluffy, and incredibly moi-…yeah, that kind of difference! πŸ˜‰

Happy PancakeΒ COOKIE Sunday!

I’m officially taking requests…

What should our next flavor be?

  1. These look amazing (like all the other pancake recipes)! You’re the pancake queen! πŸ™‚ Pinned!

  2. Breanna says:

    Aww, I JUST made the pb&j pancakes and I saw this five minutes after. I love snickerdoodle, these look soooo good! Oh well, I guess I know what’s for lunch now πŸ˜‰

  3. How sad is it that I can’t even remember the last time I had a snickerdoodle cookie? I’ve been all about the chocolate chip oatmeal lately, forgetting the poor doodle in the process. That needs to change. And I think I may just start by making pancakes… for dinner πŸ˜€

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      You know, I am of the strong opinion that breakfast food…specifically pancakes tastes EVEN BETTER after dark! And I think I hear the cinnamon calling your name! Amanda….Amandaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! πŸ˜‰

  4. Wow! These are amazing! I can’t wait to try these ones out! I love anything with cinnamon!

  5. Oh. Em. Gee. I totally wish you lived near DC because I would love a sweet stack of cookie ‘cakes any day πŸ˜‰

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh my gosh, can you IMAGINE what would happen if we lived near each other? Between your cereal and my cookies, we’d OD on pancakes for sure! Lol

  6. Kat says:

    Girl, you’ve done it again. Every Sunday without fail, you get me to drool all over my laptop AND get me craving pancakes. The only bad part? I never have the ingredients to make them!! Its like torture….I’m seriously going to go shopping one day and ONLY buy pancake ingredients so I can enjoy some of your recipes!

  7. Yum!!! I just started playing around with protein pancakes again last week and I forgot how AMAZING they are! These look totally delicious!

  8. a “thing” for cinnamon? girl… I LOAD UP on it! I’ve never had snickerdoodle cookies before but I AM LOVING these pancakes. What else is new. You really are the pancake queeen πŸ™‚

  9. The title of your post pulled me in!!!! Wow, Heather, those look INCREDIBLE!

  10. Gail says:

    Great recipe! Just wondering can I substitute the protein powder with anything else or simply omit it?
    I can’t wait to try it. Looks amazing!!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Thank you, Gail! And actually, someone on Instagram told me that they used about 3 tablespoons of almond flour instead of the protein powder and only added 1/4 cup of milk and they came out great! I’m sure you could also do the same with more coconut flour…you’d just have to work with the amount of liquid. Let me know if you try it!

  11. These look awesome!! It is so true that we have a thing for cinnamon!! lol

  12. Can you believe I’ve never had a snickerdoodle cookie before?! Thanks to my pesky allergies, the only baked goods I can eat are ones that I bake myself or that my family bakes, and I guess we’ve just never made snickerdoodles before! That needs to change. Also, I need to make these pancakes. πŸ˜€

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Well!! Just make these pancakes and you’ll kill two birds with one stone! πŸ˜‰ Snickerdoodles are definitely one of my favorites…you’ll love them!

  13. YUM! How did you know I’m thinking about Snickerdoodle NUTTY BUTTER? πŸ˜‰

  14. Forget the next flavor. I’ll take one of these. Yum, snicker doodles are some of my favorite cookies.

  15. Carinne says:

    Saw these just in time to make for my post workout meal….so glad I did! They were absolutely delicious!!!

  16. Jessie says:

    Please tell me I can sub oat flour for something else????

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Of course! You could really use any flour for this, I just prefer using ground oats (oat flour) because they end up having a lighter feel than when I use whole wheat flour. πŸ™‚

  17. Um, holy yum?! These sound amazing!! (and look it too!)

    By the way, I just nominated you for a sunshine award! πŸ™‚

  18. Rebekah Cefalu says:

    Dang! Another amazing recipe I must try! I’m a little behind… This AND the cinnamon raisin pan(cookie) cakes must happen in my kitchen soon! Geez, I love you. πŸ™‚

  19. Wow! These pancakes look so so good.

  20. Now I’m reaaaaaaaly mad I’m all out of protein powder. Arrrgggg!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh noooooo! I DID have an IG follower tell me that she had good success with almond flour instead of protein powder if you have any of that! πŸ˜€

    Just made the snickerdoodle pancakes at 7:00 PM….Awwwwsome! not dry cakes at all! I’ll be checking out more of your recipies. πŸ™‚

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Aww, yay! I’m SO glad you liked them, Sharleen! Did you end up using the coconut flour? I think that really does a lot for the consistency/texture of the overall cake…love how it makes them almost “spongy”! I’d love to hear what you think about any other recipes that you try. And if you ever have any questions/suggestions, just let me know! πŸ˜€

  31. sharleen says:

    Yes, I used coconut flour. It was great! I am cocunut lover.. πŸ™‚

  32. Kelly says:

    These look so good! What is the nutritional content for the protein powder or what kind do you use? Could you use plain protein powder and add vanilla? Just wondering how much sugar your protein powder has too.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      I use Nutiva hemp protein powder. Per 3 tablespoon (30g) serving, it has 90 calories, 3g of fat, 9g carbs, 8g fiber, 1g sugar, and 15g protein. The only ingredient is hemp so the sugar is only naturally occurring. You could definitely substitute plain protein powder (though I’d be careful going with brown rice…it tends to be a little tricky…but a whey or soy should work just fine! And if your protein powder is already sweetened, you can skip the stevia too!

      Let me know what you think if you try these! I LOVE getting feedback! πŸ™‚
