5-Ingredient Pancake Recipe

5-Ingredient Pancakes: A Protein & Fiber-Filled Recipe for Lazy Gals like Myself // Hustle + Halcyonhellur ladies.

I’m headed to NYC for the weekend! I’ll be attending a really sweet beach house influencer event being put on by Creed’s Collective x Tech Style, and I can’t wait to share that will y’all. I freakin’ love blogger/influencer events… mostly because they’re usually SET UP to cater to Instagram & blog photos (not sorry). Another shameless plug: follow me on snap (payton_sartain) & Instagram (@paytonsartain) for some NYC action (it’s a good little escape from the usual LA Life).

I’ve gotten some really great suggestions from some of you, so thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for being so freakin’ helpfull. Y’all are the best.

I’ll be in the city until Sunday, so when it comes to suggestions, the more the merrier! I’m be staying in the Soho area, if that helps at all. I know I’m DEF going to go the Conrad Hotel rooftop (for popsicles & prosecco *die*), Jack’s Wife Frieda & The Butcher’s Daughter, and the Chelsea Market! What else should I add to the list?

Is it weird that I’m actually really excited to explore the city alone?? I mean, yes, I’m looking forward to meeting up with friends & such, but I LOVE EXPLORING ALONE. Loner-4-Life.

I’ll have a little re-cap of my trip up on H+H after this weekend.

OK. Onto the previously scheduled post.

Most of y’all have tried those “simple,” “skinny,” or “protein” pancake recipes that taste like absolute shit. I mean… I’m all for being simple & using 3-ingredients… but most of those pancakes end up in the trash because eeeeewwwwwww. If you can’t identify with this dilemma, take it from me. It’s hard to find a healthy-ish pancake recipe that isn’t (essentially) poop on a plate. And the only thing I can think is…. WTF are these people on?? Vom Squad.

Then. One fateful day last week, I ran across this recipe by Monique of the Ambitious Kitchen. Props to you, girl. The pancake Gods have answered all of our prayers.

As per usual for me, I tweaked the regular recipe a tad to my liking. I customize this recipe as far as fruit I use & toppings, but I always stick with the same 5 base pancake ingredients (and they always come out really, really good).

5-Ingredient Pancakes: A Protein & Fiber-Filled Recipe for Lazy Gals like Myself // Hustle + Halcyon5-Ingredient Pancakes: A Protein & Fiber-Filled Recipe for Lazy Gals like Myself // Hustle + Halcyon


Pancake Base:
♥ 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
♥ 1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt
♥ 1/2 Medium Ripe Banana
♥ 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
♥ 1 Egg

Optional Adds:
♥ 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
♥ Cinnamon to Taste
♥ Blueberries (or whatever fruit/goodies you want)
♥ Chia Seeds

♥ Blueberries (or whatever fruit/goodies you want)
♥ Cinnamon
♥ Honey or Syrup


♥ Combine Pancake ingredients (except blueberries) in a food processor until smooth. Set aside a few minutes to thicken.
♥ Spray pan with cooking oil (I use coconut oil), and set over medium-low heat.
♥ Drop pancake batter in pan in 1/4 cup portions, and add blueberries to top while heating. Cook until bubbles appear on top, and then flip.
♥ Top with desired toppings & enjoy!

This recipe makes 2 servings (two pancakes each) and each serving is a little over 200 calories, depending on what you choose to top with/use!

Side: the honey I used was from my POPSUGAR Must-Have box (umm… y’all have to check out this subscription box deal), and it was SOOOO good like that. I prefer topping with honey, cinnamon, and a little more fruit.

I hope y’all actually like this pancake recipe. I mean… it’s not Dupar’s Famous Hotcakes covered in Melted butter and sugar-coma syrup (the BEST pancakes in Los Angeles, BTW), but they’re light, clean, & delicious anyhow. I can dig it.

Talk soon, beebuses. xx

    This gets five stars because it is both easy to make and tastes really good. I followed another reviewer’s recommendation to let the batter sit for 15 to 20 minutes for a fluffier pancake. It worked out well. My kids love chocolate chips in their pancakes, so that is what I used. Much better than the mix I used to use and will not be buying anymore. Thanks.
