  • 1 second blast of olive oil cooking spray
  • 3 scoops LiveLightMD any flavor protein shake powder (we love Vanilla!)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon (or a pinch) (available from most baking supply aisles)
  • 1/3 cup liquid
  • 1/3 cup almond milk (use sweetened for Coffee shake powder)


  1. Heat griddle on the stove on medium heat. For best results, first spray griddle with a one second blast of olive cooking spray and blot out the oil evenly with a folded paper towel before heating.
  2. While griddle heats, add Vanilla shake powder, baking powder and xanthan gum to a mixing bowl. Shake packages well before adding egg whites and almond milk.
  3. Whisk ingredients vigorously, for about 20-30 seconds, until batter achieves consistency that’s very similar to regular pancake batter.
  4. For 4-inch pancakes, spoon about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto griddle. Using the back of a dinner spoon, gently smooth out batter circles until they are all evenly sized.
  5. Allow to cook for about 3 minutes on one side. Once batter looks thickened and starts to bubble evenly on the surface of each pancake, very carefully flip pancakes over.
  6. Allow to cook on other side for about 3 minutes. Lower heat if necessary so that pancakes do not burn.
  7. Using a fork or toothpick, test middle of pancake. If still too soft, allow to cook one or two more minutes with heat turned low.
  8. Turn off heat and enjoy warm!

Yields four 4-inch pancakes or six to eight smaller pancakes in about 15 minutes.
