Today’s recipe combines two of my loves: blueberries and pancakes. This epic team up creates the most delicious vegan blueberry protein pancakes! I have been on such a pancake kick recently, but no matter how many delicious flavors I make (such as much Chocolate Caramel Protein Pancakes) I always go back to these blueberry protein pancakes. As much as I love vegan protein pancakes, they are a bit of a hassle to make, so if you’re looking for a quick high protein breakfast recipe, check out some of the other ones on my blog! Here are some of my favorites:

- Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oats

Best plant based protein for vegan protein pancakes:
Over my past 4-ish years of being vegan I have tried a lot of plant based protein powders. Some were good, some were okay, and others tasted like pure chalk. This led me to a period of just swearing off vegan protein powders, because I couldn’t find one that I genuinely liked. However the day I discovered PlantFusion everything changed. I find that most protein (plant based or not) have a one size fits all model to them. This really irritates me, because we are all so different, and the foods we need to eat reflect that. This is a major reason I love PlantFusion so much: they have something for everybody!
I have made these vegan blueberry protein pancakes many times with many different PlantFusion powders. They all work perfectly to create nice fluffy protein pancakes that are delicious. This is awesome, because you can shop around and figure out which of their products serves your needs the best. I went with the PlantFusion Inspire for Women because it helps to balance hormones (something I’ve been needing recently). I love that all their products work well in this recipe, because this vegan protein pancake recipe was created for YOU! As always my code “NATURALVEGAN” gets you 25% off your entire purchase at PlantFusion!
How to make Vegan Blueberry Protein Pancakes:
Like I said in the beginning, I’m a blueberry gal. I have made an insane amount of vegan blueberry protein pancakes over the years, and I’ve learned a thing or two. First, make sure you’re using fresh blueberries, not frozen for this vegan protein pancake recipe. This may be obvious, but I definitely could have saved the world from some purple/grey pancakes if I’d known this sooner. Second, use a quality skillet. Growing up we always had a generic nonstick skillet that was full of all kinds of harsh linings and coatings. I recently invested in a GreenLife Ceramic Nonstick Electric Skillet, and it has honestly been a life saver! Last, but not least, practice makes perfect! It takes time to figure out protein pancakes, so just take it one step at a time!
What makes this vegan pancake recipe healthy?
Obviously these vegan blueberry protein pancakes have protein and blueberries in them, but what else makes them healthy? These vegan protein pancakes are free of many ingredients typically found in pancakes such as: refined sugar, milk, eggs, oil, processed flour etc. Instead of using those ingredients, I went with simple whole foods plant based ingredients. They came out just as delicious and 10x more nutritious!
