[I made these easy and healthy Paleo Hemp Protein Pancakes for Earth Fare!]

The 3 ingredient Paleo Pancakes I added to the blog a while back are one of the most popular posts I’ve ever published! 

I love them because they’re made with simple, healthy ingredients and they’re super easy to make.

Make a good thing better

Those pancakes have a decent amount of protein from the egg and almond flour, but I bumped it up even more in this version by adding hemp protein powder! Paleo Hemp Protein Pancakes | Reclaiming Yesterday

Why I love hemp 

You could really add any protein powder you love here, but I chose to use hemp protein powder for a few reasons: 

  • It’s less processed than many protein powders – the only ingredient is organic hemp protein!
  • Hemp is super sustainable – the plant is easy to grow with little water, and actually improves soil quality by cleaning up soil pollution. 
  • It has an earthy, nutty flavor I love – I personally really like the flavor of hemp. It’s earthy, but subtle. I have talked to people who don’t care for it though (everyone’s different!) 
  • Hemp is full of health benefits – it has more healthy omega fatty acids and fiber than many other protein powders, and it can improve fatigue and immune health, among other things.

Making the protein pancake batter

Just add everything to a food processor and blend until the batter is nice and smooth!

Depending on your ingredients, you’ll probably need to add a splash of some kind of milk (whatever milk or milk alternative you love works.)

Then, just heat your griddle or cast iron pan, add some butter, ghee, or coconut oil, and get to pouring those pancakes 😉

Topping your pancakes 

You can make this stack of pancakes as plain or as dressed up as you feel like. But just a few little extras take them from yumm to majorly YUMM (and make them worthy of that insta pic.) 

My personal favorite toppers are berries and a swhoosh of cashew butter 😍

Maybe an extra sprinkle of hemp seeds and just a litttle drizzle of maple syrup.

Simple, healthy pancakes that have the carbs, protein, and healthy fats to keep you feeling full all morning. 

BONUS – You can freeze extra pancakes and reheat them on rushed mornings. 

Winning that healthy life game with this stack 👌👌

Tag me on insta if you make these – I love seeing your creations!

Or, Opt for the Easy-Peasy Paleo Pancake

I used to make these paleo hemp protein pancakes all the time, and loved it. But if I’m being honest, I haven’t been making them as often lately because I’ve become completely obsessed with Birch Benders Paleo Pancake mix. The ingredients are awesome and all you have to do is add water, so that’s a huge win. 

You could even add some hemp protein powder, if you wanted to go that route and bump up the protein. Just updating this post with that lazy-girl hack in case you don’t feel like busting out the food processor 😜

  1. Just tried these, followed every instruction but the batter won’t hold together and the pancakes are impossible to flip in the pan. Just wasted a ton of ingredients for everything to end up in the trash. 🙁

    • Hi Lea, I’m so sorry they didn’t work out for you! I’m not sure what might have gone wrong since they’ve always worked for me. Could possibly be egg size or how ripe the banana was.

  2. I just made these, 7 cute pancakes of approx 10 cm. Turned out fluffy and just right sweetness! Thanks for the recipe Allyson.
    Just wondering if there would be a way to substitute one of the eggs?

    • That’s so great to hear! And yes, you could use a “flax egg” in place of one of the eggs. Combine 1 tablespoon of flax meal with 2.5 tablespoons of water and let it sit for about 5 minutes before you add it to the batter 😊

  3. Thanks for the recipe, they turned out great. I replaced one egg with the flax/water combination that you suggested. I made the pancakes very small (silver dollar sized) and cooked them in gee (clarified butter). I suggest heating the pan, I used cast iron, on low, and cooking them on low. They were great topped with blueberries and some maple syrup!

  4. I’m really upset these came out terrible. The batter had potential but as someone else said – it was a big sloppy mess and I’m throwing the rest in the trash. It wouldn’t cook and when it did it burnt but the inside stayed wet so I couldn’t even try it burnt I’d have to eat it raw.

    • Hi Grace. I really feel terrible that these didn’t work out for you, they always work for me! When you say the batter was a sloppy mess, do you mean it wasn’t smooth or it was too thick? Sounds like it maybe was too thick if they didn’t cook in the center. Did you try thinning it out with a little milk or milk alternative? As someone else has noted, these turn out best when cooked on a cast iron pan on low heat. Again, really sorry they didn’t work out.
