Apple protein pancakes

These fluffy apple pancakes are the perfect way to start your day. They're made with oats, protein powder, apples, and warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve them with fresh or frozen berries and a dollop of dairy free yoghurt if you’re feeling extra fancy.

  1. To a medium sized bowl, combine the oats, protein powder and baking soda, mixing to combine well. 

  2. Then add the mashed banana, vanilla essence and soy milk, mixing slowly until the batter is thick yet still pourable. 

  3. Set the batter aside to rest for 5-10 minutes before cooking. 

  4. Meanwhile, slice the apple from left to right into equal thick patty-like discs. 

  5. To a pan on medium-low heat, use ¼ cup of the batter to make the pancakes. Dip each apple patty in the pancake batter. 

  6. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until small bubbles appear on the ridges of the pancakes. Then flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. 

  7. Serve the protein pancakes with fresh berries and hemp seeds. 


  • Quick oats - If you are clinically required to be strictly gluten-free, please swap the oats for either quinoa flakes, amaranth or for gluten-free Weetabix.
  • Macro Mike Protein Powder- For this recipe, I used the vanilla buttercream almond protein, however, any flavour will do well too. This is optional as a higher protein option. You can get 10% off all Macro Mike products with the code 'amb-raquel'. Alternatively, you can omit this altogether. 
  • Vitasoy Soy milk - Please ensure this is calcium-fortified and contains between 300-400 mg of calcium per serving. However, suppose you are allergic or prefer other plant-based milk. In that case, you can always use another alternative, given it is calcium-fortified.

Nutritional Summary:

At Radiquel, we believe strict fixation on numbers is a reductionist view of nutrition and can potentially harm our relationship with food. Food is also so much more than just units of calories and macronutrients; it’s a chance to nourish our minds, bodies, and souls with whole and soul foods. However, we acknowledge nutritional panels’ educational value for some individuals and have provided them solely for educational purposes. Please utilise this information with the utmost care.

This nutritional information is given solely for recreational intent and is not recommended to displace any medical advice, nor is it necessarily precise. We approximate the nutritional information per the listed ingredients. As food products can always vary in size, brand and shape, and nutritional quantities can also change based on the plants' growth circumstances, the quality of the soil, the fruits' maturity, and other factors, the nutrition information that is provided is an approximation. Since these values are highly individualised and rely on a variety of variables, such as age, gender, and the amount of daily physical activity, we do not offer the percentage of the recommended daily value.
