How to Store Protein Pancakes

One of my favorite things to do is to make these high protein pancakes in bulk and then store them for later.  That way, I can reheat them throughout the week and enjoy a high protein pancake breakfast.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Allow the pancakes to cool to room temperature before storing.
  • Use either a ziplock bag or air-tight meal prep containerOpens in a new tab. for storage.
  • Stack the protein pancakes in the storage container, placing a piece of wax paper or parchment paper in between each pancake.
  • Place the stored protein pancakes in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • If refrigerating, these protein pancakes will store for 1 week.
  • If freezing, these lemon blueberry pancakes will last up to 2 months.
  • Store the lemon yogurt topping and blueberries separately in the refrigerator and then top after reheating.

When ready to eat, just reheat in the microwave for 1 minute if not frozen, 2 minutes if frozen.

    Just made these this morning. The family loved them. Doubled the zest & lemon juice in the batter because we really like lemon flavor. I didn’t have cottage cheese & substituted plain greek yogurt. Also used quick cooking oats. Put them in the food processor & the batter turned out great.
    Will definitely make again. 😊👌🏻

    How big are the scoops for the protein powder? Investors had recipes that give scoops & the size & found that my scoop was quite a bit bigger, so I had to adjust. I haven’t tried them, but had to leave a rating, so my rating is a guess as they look good.

  3. Commenting as I grill them! (Already ate the first one:) These are so great, and a wonderful way to use that vanilla protein… I seriously can’t bare one more smoothie!!
    Mine turned out ridiculously yellow from my whey prots, but so yummy and healthy. Thanks so much for the great recipes!!! 🙂

    Great recipe, I made some adaptations: as I only had frozen blueberries I mixed them in the blender and also added sweet potato puree. Replaced lemon for orange and added a bit of cinnamon. It’s not the same pancake but turned out yummy still.

  5. 4 stars
    I just made these with Greek Yogurt instead of the cottage cheese. They were good but after the first one, I did add 1/4 cup almond flour to make them a little more like a pancake instead of a thick crepe. I also added 1/2 a packet of Stevia.

  6. This seems like a good recipe! However, we cannpt eat dairy. Do you have a recommendation to substitute for the 1/2 c cottage cheese?

  7. These sounded so good, however, I could not get them to cook enough to flip without them falling apart! I preheated the griddle at the recommended temperature and greased with coconut oil but did not help.
    I did make one change as I did not have protein powder. I substituted ground flax for the protein powder. Could this have been what kept them from staying together.
