Protein Pancake Mix from The Protein Works™ is a high protein, low GI, great tasting snack. It includes a tri-protein blend of whey, milk and egg protein, Pure Fine Oats, Medium Chain Triglycerides and the natural sweetener Stevia.
With over 30g of protein per serving, TPW™ Protein Pancake contains five times as much protein as a traditional pancake. It is ideal for breakfast or as a convenient snack, plus if you try our pimping suggestions, they are incredibly versatile!
TPW™ Protein Pancake Mix has been enhanced with healthy, low Glycemic Index (GI) carbohydrates and MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) powder. This means they’re nutritionally ideal for every type of diet, especially for those seeking nutritionally sound food choices to support weight loss.
Made from a tri-protein blend of our premium grade Whey Protein 80, Milk Protein 85 and Egg Protein 80, they make a great breakfast or snack choice. Finally, the low Glycemic Index (GI) carbohydrates and the addition of the MCT's (Medium Chain Triglycerides) provide a slow, sustained release of energy, whilst at the same time having minimal affect on body fat levels.
TPW™ Protein Pancake Mix can also widely be used by those wanting to lower their body fat. This is because of the unique nutritional profile of each pancake. Firstly, the high protein content has been shown to help keep you feeling fuller for longer and reduce cravings. Secondly, only low Glycemic Index (GI) carbohydrates are used in our Protein Pancakes and this is coupled with MCT powder which has been shown to have a ‘thermic’ and satiating effect, further assisting the weight loss goal. Essentially what this means is one TPW™ Protein Pancake can not only keep you fuller for longer, but may also help fat loss simply by increasing the amount of calories you burn through digestion.
Our pancakes are incredibly versatile and under the Directions for Use above we explain how you can 'Pimp You Pancake' in both sweet and savoury ways. If you prefer a crepe style pancake then simply add a little more milk.

Products That Work Well With PROTEIN PANCAKE MIX...
The Expert's View of PROTEIN PANCAKE MIX
"The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition states to support a strength or speed based workout routine athletes require 1.7grams of protein per kg of bodyweight per day. Interestingly research conducted at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada later found that endurance athletes require a greater (or equal) intake of protein than strength athletes to prevent protein catabolism during exercise."
Research: Food, Nutrition and Sports Performance II: The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition (Ron Maughan et al, 2004).
To create the perfect TPW™ Protein Pancake simply follow these directions:
- Add 55g (two large 70ml scoops ) to 150ml of milk or water
- Mix lightly with a fork, be careful not to over mix, the mix should still have a few lumps in it, so don't worry!
- Leave the batter to rest for 1 -2 minutes.
- Gently heat a non stick pan with a light coating of oil over a moderate heat (we recommend using TPW™ Coconut Oil)
- When the pan is warmed then add 2 tablespoons of the batter into the pan, and repeat to form 3 round pancakes in the pan.
- Cook GENTLY for one and a half minutes until the pancake begins to "fluff" up , then flip over and cook for a further one minute until evenly golden brown on both sides.
- Immediately take the hot pancakes out of the pan and eat straight away with your preferred choice of toppings
Note: to make a larger, crepe like pancake, simply add more milk to the batter mix.

Buy them now!!!!!!!!!!
You can be naughty with Nutella melted on them, or polish your halo and have some zero syrup on fruit and fat free yoghurt.
Also the mix goes a very long way, I mix 100ml of skimmed milk with one scoop and it makes 2 large pancakes.

I have tried adding ground cinnamon to the mix which makes a nice change once in a while.
Only thing I have struggled with is actually cooking them, they don't seem to cook as quickly as regular pancakes so turning them can prove tricky...but then I don't rate myself highly in the kitchen.
i love my pancakes but with watching what i eat i havent been able to indulge in the normal pancakes with toppings like lemon and sugar.
In comes TPW protein pancakes, two scoops is 6-7 mini pancakes or two big pancakes, any toppings work and they taste great.
1 (two scoop) serving makes around 7 small pancakes and they are so filling! The best thing is that they're so versatile, you can add whatever you want to them. Will definitely be buying again!
These on the other hand are amazing. They mix so easily in an old shaker and cook up nice and fluffy. They are great topped with some of these:
Fat free vanilla yoghurt
The 2 scoop mix recommended will make 2 LARGE or about 6-7 small pancakes, not the 3 SMALL ones stated on the packaging.

To add a bit of flavour I usually add 1 teaspoon of organic coconut palm sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder and a handful of blueberries.
They come out tasting awesome! As usual good service. Will be ordering some more very soon! Thank you TPW!
They are pretty close to the real deal, although still can't beat my lovely Dutch pancakes! But with the low carbs, high protein etc. these are a fantastic healthy alternative.
They taste good and the preparation is ultra short so I think I will be munching on these quite a bit. Happy, happy customer =)
2 scoops with water made 3 pretty big pancakes and they taste amazing! a little bit of honey on top and I genuinely thought they taste as good as regular pancakes. Definitely buying this product again as I see myself running out very soon! =)
I didn't buy it but tried a friend's mix and I thought it wasn't bad at all. Great if you fancy a quick batch of pancakes. They don't taste as nice as real pancakes, but then again you can add so many different flavours to it it doesn't really matter.
Personally I'd just whip up an omelette but I can totally see the attraction of this product and if I wasn't confident in the kitchen or unable to create a quick nutritious snack I'd definitely use this sort of product.
Keep the innovation going guys, you're helping a lot of people to eat more healthily. :)
I've tried them with hot salsa. I'm going to try a sweeter option next time. Extremely happy with this purchase!
I use half the amounts it states on the packaging though as the double scoop is too much for me. Single scoop and 75ml of water is plenty. Another fab product by TPW!!xx
But this is the next best thing, takes less than a minute to mix and cooks within minutes.
Try adding vanilla essence, lemon juice with the mix.
Great product, great nutrient specs.
Tip - Use TPW's Coconut Oil for your pan :)
2 scoops in a shaker with some milk and away you go.
The idea is so clever, as all you need to do is add liquid and this means I have made these for a quick lunch when I have forgotten to get anything else from the shop, you still get a "cooked" meal - but getting the ratio and then the thickness and cooking time just right might take a few go's to get your head around, they really don't cook or behave quite like normal pancakes.
I masked this taste with loads of lemon juice and stevia! : )
Added blueberries into the mix for something different! And when feeling very indulgent - chocolate drops!
Have just bought another bag and looking foward to trying more savory ideas as suggested by others.
a must buy for any athlete
Can see myself having pancakes for breakfast a lot more often now, or as an alternative to lunch.
