It’s no secret that I love pancakes. I mean, there are already 28 pancake recipes on the blog! Lately, I’ve been really into Kodiak Cakes Protein Packed Pancake Mix (the chocolate one is good too!). I’m not into pancake/waffle mixes at all, but I love that this one is high protein and (decently) clean ingredients. The problem is they only carry Kodiak Cake mixes at one of my local grocery stores. My solution – this homemade version! I started with a basic whole wheat pancake batter and upped the protein by adding collagen peptides. I used Vital Proteins unflavored collagen peptides. It dissolves easily in everything and unlike some “unflavored” products, it literally has NO flavor. #winning If you’re looking for a homemade high-protein pancake to rival Kodiak’s verison, this is it! Enjoy!

Whole Wheat Protein Pancakes (with collagen peptides)

2 cups whole wheat flour
4-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2 cups + 2 tbsp milk (skim or 2%)
2 tsp vanilla extract
8 scoops vital proteins unflavored collagen peptides

1. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and collagen in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Let batter rest at least 15 minutes or up to 1 hour at room temperature.
2. Heat a large non-skillet over medium heat. Pour about ~3 tbsp batter onto hot skillet for each pancake. When bubbles appear and edges start to set, flip the pancakes. Repeat until all the batter is gone. Makes 20 pancakes.
3. Place leftovers in a ziploc bag and freeze. Reheat in microwave or toaster.
