Serve Breakfast in Bed With Our Protein-Packed Mother’s Day Pancake Recipe

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we think it’s the perfect time to share a delectable protein-packed pancake recipe. After all, pancakes tend to be a breakfast-in-bed staple—especially on Mom’s special day. Why? Well first of all, they are a yummy way to start the morning. But perhaps more importantly, they are pretty easy to make, which means they’re perfect for when little hands want to help make something for Mom. We also love pancakes for Mother’s Day because they are so customizable. Is the mom you’re celebrating a chocolate lover? Or maybe she’s positively obsessed with blueberries? We’ve even seen pancake recipes with a lemon ricotta dollop on top … if you’re in the mood to get fancy! Regardless, we’re sharing the foundation for it all. Keep reading for our Mother’s Day pancake recipe. 

In addition to thinking about which toppings Mom will enjoy most, consider her other breakfast/brunch favorites! We think this Mother’s Day pancake recipe is best when combined with all the fixings … mimosas, coffee, and anything else you know she loves. 

Happy cooking!

What You Need


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 scoop PlantYourDay protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk of your choice
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter plus a little extra for cooking
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

The Preparation

The Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, PlantYourDay, sugar, baking powder, and salt. 
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract. 
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until combined. It is okay if the batter has small lumps. 
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and brush with a little bit of the extra butter. 
  5. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake.
  6. Cook for 2-3 minutes on the first side, or until bubbles appear on the surface and the edges begin to look set. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side until browned and cooked through.
