Oh yeah, I did it again…
It seemed to me that last week’s oatmeal raisin panCOOKIES simply 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?
Snickerdoodle Protein Pancakes
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, 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! 😉
cake COOKIE Sunday!
I’m officially taking requests…
What should our next flavor be?
These look amazing (like all the other pancake recipes)! You’re the pancake queen! 🙂 Pinned!
Thank you Shannon! 😀
What can I sub for the syrup?
But I’m vegan with an allergy to sugar and cinnamon.
Bahahahahaha! Omg, I’m dying!
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 😉
That’s my girl! Nothing like pancakes all day every day! 😉
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 😀
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! 😉
Those look INCREDIBLE!
Wow! These are amazing! I can’t wait to try these ones out! I love anything with cinnamon!
Thank you Danielle! And I’m right there with ya…the more cinnamon, the better! 😀
Oh. Em. Gee. I totally wish you lived near DC because I would love a sweet stack of cookie ‘cakes any day 😉
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
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!
Aww, I’m sorry love! If I could beam one to you, I swear I would! 😉
Yum!!! I just started playing around with protein pancakes again last week and I forgot how AMAZING they are! These look totally delicious!
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 🙂
Haha! Yeah, I may or may not have sprinkled MORE on top after the pics! Can NEVER have too much cinnamon!
The title of your post pulled me in!!!! Wow, Heather, those look INCREDIBLE!
Aww, thank you Kelsey! xoxo
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!!
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!
These look awesome!! It is so true that we have a thing for cinnamon!! lol
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. 😀
Well!! Just make these pancakes and you’ll kill two birds with one stone! 😉 Snickerdoodles are definitely one of my favorites…you’ll love them!
YUM! How did you know I’m thinking about Snickerdoodle NUTTY BUTTER? 😉
I love you! 😀
Forget the next flavor. I’ll take one of these. Yum, snicker doodles are some of my favorite cookies.
Saw these just in time to make for my post workout meal….so glad I did! They were absolutely delicious!!!
Awww, yay!! I’m SO glad you liked them! Thank you so much!
Please tell me I can sub oat flour for something else????
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. 🙂
Um, holy yum?! These sound amazing!! (and look it too!)
By the way, I just nominated you for a sunshine award! http://southerninlaw.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/sunshine-lollipops-and.html 🙂
Aww, thank you Kristy! Going to check it out now! 🙂
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. 🙂
Thanks girlie! Aww, I love you more! 😀
Wow! These pancakes look so so good.
Now I’m reaaaaaaaly mad I’m all out of protein powder. Arrrgggg!
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! 😀

Just made the snickerdoodle pancakes at 7:00 PM….Awwwwsome! not dry cakes at all! I’ll be checking out more of your recipies. 🙂
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! 😀
Yes, I used coconut flour. It was great! I am cocunut lover.. 🙂
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.
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! 🙂
