  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 fresh strawberries , cubed, plus more for topping
  • 2-3 teaspoons butter , for cooking

For the Strawberry Sauce

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • In a large bowl, combine pancake mix, protein powder, egg, vanilla and soy milk. Fold in fresh strawberries into the pancake mix.
  • Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium -low heat. Once the pan becomes hot, grease with 1 teaspoon of butter. Add 1/4 cup of the pancake mixture at a time. Let cook until the top of the pancake begins to create bubbles and the edges have set. Carefully, flip the pancake using a spatula. Let cook for about 1-2 minutes or until both sides are golden brown. Repeat steps with remaining pancake batter.
  • Serve warm with strawberry sauce.

For the strawberry sauce

  • Place all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring up to a boil over medium-high heat. Once it begins to boil, bring the heat to low and let simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture becomes thick and strawberries brake down completely.
  • Strain the mixture and reserved tightly sealed in the fridge.


  • Don't over mix the pancake batter. There should be no dry flour in the mixture, but it's fine to have lumps in it.
  • Don't have the pan on too high a heat to cook the pancakes, otherwise the outsides will cook too quickly and the middle will be raw.
  • If making the strawberry sauce ahead of time, let it cool completely before storing.
