About Recipe

I love American pancakes but sometimes all I want is a plate of thin crêpe style pancakes, the way they are usually served in Sweden. In most cases, Swedes will put some strawberry jam on their crêpe style pancakes but I’ve always been a fan of serving them with berries and of course, drizzled with maple syrup! Crêpe style pancakes + maple syrup = a match made in heaven!

I have tweaked the traditional pancake recipe slightly by giving it a boost and adding extra protein whilst replacing the usual milk with Oatly’s Oat Drink. This gives it a more balanced nutritional value and makes them dairy free* without changing the taste. Win win!

If you’ve just hit the gym (well done you!), a batch of these protein boosted crêpe style pancakes are a well deserved treat!

If you give this recipe a go, I’d love to see what you think in the comments section below.

*Please note that this recipe is only dairy free if you use dairy free protein powder.

  • Difficulty5/10


  • 3 dl/1.2 cups flour
  • 1 dl/0.2 cups protein powder, I have used vanilla flavoured protein
  • 4 dl Oatly Oat Drink
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ pinch of cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
  • butter for cooking

    To serve

    Fresh strawberries


    Icing sugar

    Maple syrup

    Fresh basil


In a bowl with a hand whisk or in a blender, mix flour, protein powder, Oatly, vanilla essence, salt and cinnamon until you have a lump-free batter.

Add the eggs and continue whisking/blending until thoroughly combined. I use this Ninja Blender Duo.

Let the mixture rest while you chop up your toppings.

Heat up a medium sized pan and add butter for frying.

Once your pan has reached medium heat, add a scoop (roughly 80ml, you may need more or less depending on the size of your pan) of batter and make sure it covers the entire pan.

As soon as the top of the pancake is no longer shiny/wet it’s time to flip it over.

Serve your pancakes with sliced strawberries, blueberries, a dusting of icing sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Liscus tip – fresh basil goes surprisingly well with strawberries.
