Protein Poppy Seed Pancakes

These protein poppy seed pancakes are high carb and calorie dense so a great solution for anybody needing to hit a high caloric requirement. They're delicious too (which always helps!).

Serves 2



  • 200g plain flour

  • 1 scoop (30g) protein

  • 75g caster sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 medium egg

  • 150 millilitres semi skimmed milk

  • 2 lemons, juiced and zested

  • 40g poppy seeds

  • 2 tablespoons oil



  1. Begin by sifting the flour and protein powder into a large bowl to remove any lumps before mixing in the sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  2. In a measuring jug, whisk together the milk, egg, poppy seeds, lemon juice and zest.

  3. Create a well in centre of the flour mixture and pour the liquid into it. Using a wooden spoon, slowly fold the flour into the wet ingredients until a smooth batter has formed.

  4. Heat a lightly oiled non-stick frying pan over a low heat and add one ladleful of batter. Spread the batter out to create a pancake that is 10 centimetres in diameter and cook for around 3 minutes, or until the base has turned golden brown. Flip the pancake and cook for a further 2 minutes on the other side before removing from the pan.

  5. Repeat this process until all the batter is used up and wrap finished pancakes in kitchen foil to keep warm while the rest cook. Squeeze over a wedge of lemon for a delicious breakfast.

This also pairs well with a dollop of natural yoghurt and honey - if you have room for more calories!
