Gingerbread Protein Pancakes

Our recipe is a spin on The Protein Chef’s Gingerbread Protein Pancakes. The key to the gingerbread taste is the combination of spices and molasses. You can make do with maple syrup in a pinch, but to get them right, the molasses is a non-negotiable. 

You can, however, make some other substitutions based on your preferences. Two whole eggs can be swapped for 1/4 cup of egg whites and you can use a 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt in place of the cottage cheese. If you want to add some extra flavor complexity you can put in 1/4 of a teaspoon of butter extract or 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves or nutmeg if you have them on hand. 

As for equipment, you will need a food processor or blender as well as a large frying pan or griddle 


  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 scoop Allo vanilla protein powder 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine wet and dry ingredients in your food processor or blender as your frying pan or griddle heats up with some non-stick cooking spray. 
  2. Blend the ingredients until fully smooth and well mixed.
  3. When your pan or griddle reaches medium heat, add 1/4 cup of batter to a measuring cup or spoon and pour batter onto the heated surface.
  4. Cook for around 2 minutes or until the batter is full of bubbles then flip.
  5. Cook for another 1-2 minutes or until cooked all the way through. 
  6. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
  7. Top with fruit, whipped cream, or maple syrup, and enjoy.
