Perfect Four Ingredient Pancakes

January 30, 2017

National Blueberry Pancake Day gave me the perfect excuse to make some pancakes! I stumbled across this four ingredient pancake recipe almost by accident. I was originally trying to follow a recipe out of one of my cookbooks but of course I forgot one of the key ingredients, so I decided it couldn’t hurt to experiment a little. And voila, my Honestly Fitness perfect four ingredient pancakes were born!!

Why These Pancakes Rock

The beauty about these perfect four ingredient pancakes recipe is that despite the fact that they are very filling, they digest really easily and are high in both protein and fiber. The pancakes also hold their shape together extremely well when being cooked so you don’t end up with these weird sloppy pancakes that so many healthy pancake recipes seem to turn into. This recipe is made from whole foods and is devoid of any protein powders or binding agents. It is also extremely tasty and pleasing to the eye!

Write a review
  1. 1 tub plain non-fat Greek Yogurt (I used Stonyfield)
  2. 1 whole egg and 1 egg white
  3. 1/2 cup rolled oats (soaked overnight) <--- this is important!
  4. 1tsp chia seeds
  5. 1/4tsp cinnamon
  6. 1/2 cup blueberries
  7. Optional
  8. Honey
  9. Maple Syrup
  10. Honestly Fitness Blueberry Chia Jam
  11. More fruit!
  1. Soak your rolled oats overnight either in some water or some milk. I soaked mine in 2% milk.
  2. Now that you have soaked your rolled oats, simply combine the above ingredients (minus the blueberries) in a food processor until smooth.
  3. Heat your frying pan and add a small amount of coconut oil or butter.
  4. Pour about 1/3 of the mixture into the pan and let it cook for approximately 2-3 minutes before flipping it over and waiting for an equal amount of time.
  5. Repeat until the rest of the batter is all used up.
  6. Serve with blueberries on top and honey,maple syrup, or my easy blueberry chia jam if you wish!
  1. Will make 2 big pancakes or 3-4 small ones.
  2. Chia seeds are not necessary and can be omitted. I like to add them for their health properties and texture.

    THESE ARE AMAZING! Every healthy pancake recipe I make turns out to be mushy, burnt or just gross and these actually turned out like a pancake should! The first one I made I poured too much batter so it was huge and thin but actually worked as a crepe! I put some blueberries and maple syrup in the middle and rolled it up like a crepe- it was delicious. Thanks for sharing these will be my new go to pancakes πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much for your glowing review, Lauren!! It means so much to me that you tried these out and let me know what you thought about them. I really wanted to make a ‘normal’ pancake to show people that you could have the best of both worlds, and not get something mushy, burnt or gross haha.
      Thanks again for such sweet words and hope you made enough to share πŸ˜‰ xxx

    Is a tube a big container or a small individual container of yogurt?

    […] As someone who has come from a background of counting calories and macro’s in the past, the HELP guide is truly a breath of fresh air. I feel like it provides a healthy and sustainable guide to healthy eating that will keep you full and satisfied. Since using the HELP guide in conjunction with the bikini body guides, I have lost 8 pounds so far I still have a ways to go in terms of getting more toned and etc, but I feel so much closer to my goals with the help of the HELP guide! I also found that eating more carbohydrates helped me perform better in my workouts, whereas previously if I had tried to restrict my carbohydrate intake, I felt so weak and sluggish :/ The following are some of the lovely recipes I have made using the information given in the HELP guide […]

    How much milk/water should be used to soak the oats?? And do you think soy milk would be alright to use or would you recommend dairy milk?? Thanks πŸ™‚

    • Honestly Fitness March 28, 2015 at 7:20 am

      Hi Melissa!
      Really great question; I normally just use however much has coated the oats in an even amount of liquid. I will typically use 1/4 cup milk/water. And yes, soy milk is totally fine! I’ve used almond milk and hemp milk before. The type of milk you use doesn’t matter at all πŸ™‚
      Hope you enjoy the recipe! x
