Want to eat pancakes for breakfast and still get lean? Yes please! These protein pancakes from Joe Wicks's million-copy bestselling first book, Lean in 15: The Shift Plan may look naughty, but they’re actually the perfect post-workout treat, so stack ’em up and enjoy. Why not double up the recipe and make them this weekend for a healthier brunch? 

Serves one (double up if you want to share)


1 banana, roughly chopped 

1 scoop (30g) vanilla protein powder

1 egg

25g rolled oats

1 tbsp coconut oil full-fat Greek yoghurt, blueberries and raspberries, to serve.


1. Whizz up the banana, protein powder, egg and oats in a blender to make your batter.

2. Heat up half the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.

3. Pour little puddles of batter into the pan – I usually get 3 pancakes, with about half the batter in the pan  at once.

4. Cook for about 1 minute on each side.

5. Remove and repeat the process with the rest of the batter.

6. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt and a few berries.
