Looking for a way to boost the protein in your breakfast intake? With whole wheat flour, vanilla protein powder, cinnamon granola, coconut and just a few pinches of sugar, this recipe is totally balanced without depriving you of indulgent flavor.


Serves: 2 (makes about 6 pancakes)

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: about 10 minutes


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup NatureBox Cinnamon Spiced Granola
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • About 2 tablespoons canola oil


1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk all the ingredients — except the canola oil — together. Be careful not to over mix; a few small lumps is fine. Transfer to a 2-cup measuring cup for easy pouring. 

2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Oil the pan with a paper towel when heated. 

3. Pour 3-4 tablespoons of batter into the pan. Flip when bubbles form on the surface, about 1-2 minutes. Cook until golden brown, about 2 more minutes.

4. Oil the pan and repeat with the rest of the batter. Serve with maple syrup and extra coconut and granola sprinkled on top.

    just did an adaptation of this…I didn’t have an egg so I used plain Greek yogurt, don’t like coconut too much so I left it out, and I had the PB&J granola on hand so I used that instead of cinnamon spiced granola. Also did it on the waffle iron. Tasted great! 🙂
