Eggnog Protein Pancakes {Dairy-Free}


These pancakes have officially put me in a holidaze.

I have to say, my fondest childhood memory of eggnog is watching Clark Griswold aggressively plunge his reindeer mug into a bowl of eggnog. “It’s good!”.

It’s no secret that eggnog is not typically a waistline nor artery-friendly holiday beverage. However, I happened to stumble upon this little carton of wonder in the grocery store and literally squealed with excitement.


Traditional eggnog can contain a whopping 350 calories, 20 grams of fat and 11 grams of saturated fat per CUP. Eeeekk! However, Silk offers a Seasonal Nog that offers all the creamy, rich flavor of eggnog without the eggs, dairy, saturated fat or cholesterol. One cup only contains 4 grams of fat (80% less than traditional eggnog).

It was literally singing Christmas carols to me in the grocery isle.


I enjoyed this nog as a swimming pool for my gingerbread cookies, as a creamer in my morning coffee, as a night-cap with a dash of bourbon, but best of all, I enjoyed this nog in my protein pancakes. It’s creamy consistency served as the perfect substitute for the almond milk I typically use.

Give yourself an early Christmas gift by preparing these one morning. They’re full of festive flavors, yet 100% waistline and artery friendly. Happy {Healthy} Holidays!

Egg Nog Protein Pancakes


Makes 1 serving of 4 medium-sized pancakes

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder of choice (I use Sunwarrior)
  • 1/2 cup Silk Seasonal Nog
  • 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup liquid egg whites


  1. Combine all ingredients and whisk with a hand mixer (batter will be slightly thick)
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Once hot, spoon batter onto the skillet using a 1/4 measuring cup (should make ~4 small-medium sized pancakes). Once bubbles appear on the surface of batter (~2-3 minutes), flip pancakes and cook the other side for an additional 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
  3. Top with pure maple syrup, honey, nut butter or whatever else your taste buds desire!

        Miss you all too! It’s cold and snowy – as expected, and I’m freezing all the time! Do you have a good, basic veggie burger recipe? Not such a fan of the quinoa, but looking for something packed with protein? Thanks!
