Pancakes for One

Are you ever craving pancakes but you want something quick and easy without a bunch of leftovers?

I gotchu covered! Pancakes for one were a go-to breakfast and snack during college and I’m bringing it back now that I’m working at home most days.

This recipe makes about 3, 5-inch pancakes but you can double it if you’re famished. If you do end up with leftovers, they keep well in the fridge (or longer in the freezer) and are best toasted!

Fueling notes:

  • Per serving, this recipe packs 58 g of carbs, 16 g of protein, and 21 g of fat, and 2 g of fiber
  • Pre-workout: have at least 2 hours before your session to give you enough time to digest.
  • Post-workout: this recipe has the ideal 3-4:1 ratio of carbs to protein! Have post-workout meal within 1-2 hours of your session.

The Stuff

  • ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup milk

The Steps

  1. Mix together dry ingredients (sift the flour for fluffier pancakes)
  2. Add wet ingredients and stir just until combined (avoid over mixing to maximize fluffiness)
  3. Lightly grease a skillet or griddle and make them pancakes!

Did you make it? I’d love to see how it turned out! Tag @climbingdietitian on instagram.
