Welcome, fellow breakfast lovers, to a delightful journey into the realm of wholesome mornings and hearty meals! 

Today, I am thrilled to share with you a family favorite that has become a cherished part of our morning routine: The ever popular Krusteaz Buttermilk Protein Pancake Mix Recipe.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup of Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
  • 1 Scoop of Protein Powder (30 gams) of your favorite flavor - we used Vanilla Bean
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup of Milk or Almond Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon of Honey or Maple Syrup
  • A Spritz of Olive Oil Cooking Spray for your pan


  1. In a medium bowl combine pancake mix and protein powder - mix together.
  2. Crack your egg into the bowl of dry ingredients, add your milk, vanilla extract and honey or maple syrup - mix until combined. Be careful not to over mix, some lumps are ok.
  3. Pre heat a non stick skillet or griddle over medium heat - lightly coat with cooking olive oil spray.
  4. Scoop batter onto pan. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup or ladle to pour batter  onto the hot pan. Cook each pancake until bubbles form on surface then flip until golden brown.
  5. Once cooked transfer the pancakes to a plate and serve immediately. Top with a pat of butter or your favorite healthy toppings such as fresh berries, sliced bananas, a dollop of Greek yogurt or a sprinkle of chopped nuts.
  6. Optional garnish - Drizzle with honey or maple syrup and dust with a touch of cinnamon and powdered sugar for extra flavor. 


  • Start by combining Krusteaz Buttermilk Protein Pancake mix with whole wheat flour for added fiber and nutrition.
  • Enhance the flavor of your pancakes with a touch of natural vanilla extract or your favorite natural flavor extract.
  • For fluffier pancakes, add a teaspoon of baking powder to the batter.
  • Substitute regular milk with almond milk for a dairy-free option that's still rich and creamy.
  • Boost the protein content of your pancakes by using egg whites instead of whole eggs.
  • For lighter and airier pancakes, mix in a tablespoon of corn starch to the batter.
  • Experiment with different liquids like water or a combination of water and almond milk for a lighter texture.
  • If you prefer thinner pancakes, simply add more liquid to the batter until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Incorporate ripe bananas into the batter for natural sweetness and added potassium.
  • Add a dollop of peanut butter to the batter for a delicious nutty flavor and an extra protein boost.
  • Customize your pancakes with your favorite toppings such as fresh berries, sliced bananas, or crunchy nuts.
  • Mix in some chocolate chips for a decadent touch or use sugar-free options for a healthier twist.
  • Opt for whole grain flour for added fiber and nutrients, making your pancakes a wholesome choice.
  • Store any leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days or freeze them for longer storage.
  • Serve your homemade Krusteaz Buttermilk Protein Pancakes with your favorite syrup for a delightful breakfast or brunch treat. Enjoy!
