Pancakes are one of the best comfort foods! It’s amazing that they can be turned into a protein-rich meal and still be incredible and these buckwheat and blueberry protein pancakes definitely prove that! I normally use oat flour in my pancakes but decided to try a different flour this time and they were just as delicious. As the blueberries heat up they melt into the pancakes a bit and it’s sooo good!

Makes approx 6-8 pancakes


1 tsp coconut oil

1 egg

1 banana

25g buckwheat flour

1 scoop vegan protein powder (25g)

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp coconut yoghurt or Almond milk (add more if the batter seems too thick)

50g blueberries

Optional toppings:

50g coconut yoghurt

1 tbsp peanut butter

Fresh berries

2 tbsp gluten free granola


  • Heat ½ of the coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat
  • Add the egg, banana, 1 tbsp coconut yoghurt, protein powder, buckwheat flour, vanilla extract and baking powder into a food processor and process until completely combined
  • Drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan (I use 1/8th of a cup to measure)
  • Place a few blueberries on top of each pancake
  • Fry on each side for 2-3 minutes until cooked through
  • Serve the pancakes warm with any toppings you like
