Vegan Protein Pancakes with Perfect Fit Protein
I don’t talk about fitness often here on Logical Harmony, but I have been following the Tone It Up plan and workouts for several years now. I started out with just the workouts. I loved that they offered easy to follow and free workouts that I could do without taking the time (or money) to go to a gym. After a while, I decided to buy their vegan nutrition plan. It has been great and there are lots of wonderful recipes in it.
However, I felt that some needed a little improving. One of them being the protein pancakes. These were something that a lot of other Tone It Up members that weren’t vegan were eating all the time, while us vegan Tone It Up members were all frustrated that the recipe included in the Nutrition Plan just wouldn’t seem to ever turn out right. In this post, I share my own recipe for vegan protein pancakes with Perfect Fit Protein.

What you will need to make Vegan Protein Pancakes with Perfect Fit Protein:
- 3 tablespoons ground flax seed
- 8 tablespoons water
- 1/2 a ripe banana, mashed
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened, plain almond milk
- 1 1/2-2 tablespoons gluten-free flour
- 1 scoop Perfect Fit protein powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (optional)
- Coconut oil spray
- Strawberries and raw almonds to garnish (optional)
- Maple syrup or agave (optional)
How to make Vegan Protein Pancakes with Perfect Fit Protein:
- In a glass or bowl, combine the ground flax seed and water. Stir well. Set aside in the refrigerator 10-15 minutes, until cold.
- In a medium sized bowl, mash the banana. Add in the almond milk and stir to combine.
- Mix in the flax seed and water mixture and stir to combine.
- Add in the powdered ingredients one at a time. Mix well before adding each additional dry ingredient. If you want to add in cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, this is the right time to add that in as well.
- Mix all the ingredients well until there are no clumps and the batter as smooth as you can get it. If you want, you can mix it in a blender.
- Over medium heat, warm a frying pan. Reduce the heat to medium low and pour in about 1/4 cup of the batter for each pancake. With this recipe, making several smaller pancakes works better as it helps ensure they cook evenly.
- Cook for 6 minutes per side.
- Top with pure maple syrup, fruit, and enjoy!
I am so excited that I can now use this recipe to enjoy vegan protein pancakes! Others have tried it as well and said that it worked great for them too. If you try this recipe, please let me know. I love getting comments on the recipe posts and please tag me on Instagram or Twitter if you share a picture, or use #logicalharmony.
3 tbps of flax seems like a lot – would this work with 1 tbsp flax and 2.5 tbsp of water in addition to the flour? I’ve tried the recipe with one flax egg and it didn’t cook all the way through, so I feel like 3 would make the problem worse
I am interested in the TIU vegan nutrition plan, but can’t find many reviews on it…wondering if it really has quality vegan recipes or just lots of substitutes in recipes like tofu and vegan cheese…do you have anything else to share about your experience? Thanks!
Thank you!!!! I have tried several times to make the TIU recipe and failed miserably. My 2 year old still loved it and ate it, but we had a little argument when I tried to convince her that no, it wasn’t “poo poo”. She still upholds that it was! 🙂 I can’t wait to try this new recipe out.
Thank you!! I tried my first vegan pancake this morning and it was a depressing disaster. I’m supposed to have them again tomorrow so I’ll be trying your version! I’m a little curious at the changes you made considering the problem I had with them (way too thick and never cooked through), but I’m an amateur cook who needs to follow exact recipes so I trust anybody who’s not me!
Oh man. I totally know the feeling Casey! Mine used to never cook through and were just… Not a pancake by any means. I hope my recipe works out well for you!
I found your blog when searching for make-up bloggers using cruelty free products, so it’s a nice surprise stumbling across a fellow Tone It Up girl!
