From crisp, golden crepes to fluffy American-style pancakes, there is something for everyone here.
When you are on a fat-loss diet or trying to stick to a healthier food plan, most traditional pancakes won’t be for you. Often high in sugar and refined carbohydrates, pancakes aren’t your friend when it comes to staying on track.
So, we’ve compiled four delicious pancake recipes for you to try, which are higher in protein and with healthier toppings. The recipes below are seriously simple to make and are all gluten- and refined sugar-free. We’ve included whey protein in some of the recipes, and paired our favourite flavours with various toppings – but feel free to mix and match with your own preference in flavour.
1. Three-Ingredient Protein Banana Pancakes
These pancakes need just three simple ingredients – banana, eggs and whey protein. We’ve paired a tasty chocolate whey protein with a peanut butter sauce and fresh blueberries.
2. Raspberry and Coconut Cheesecake Pancakes
Coconut and raspberry are a match made in heaven – so we’ve matched raspberry whey protein with coconut flour and a little ricotta – for a cheesecake flavour. Topped with a blend of Greek yoghurt and fresh berries, what more could you want from a pancake?
3. Raspberry and White Chocolate Protein Crepes
If you’re not a coconut fan, our next favourite flavour combination would be white chocolate and berries. Use either raspberries or strawberries with a scoop of white chocolate whey protein and you can have these delicious, golden crepes in minutes.

4. Italian Sweet Potato Savoury Pancakes
Who knew savoury pancakes could be so tasty? Using sweet potato and a blend of Italian flavours from fresh basil and oregano, the melting mozzarella centre make these a winner. Top Tip: They also make amazing substitutions for burger buns.
