Pancakes might be breakfast tied to being unhealthy. By adding protein like Registered Dietitian Karlene Karstsuggests, it can be a great way to incorporate extra protein into your diet if you eat plant-based (or in general).



  • 1 banana
  • 2 cups almond, or cashew milk (or water if you prefer)
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 egg or vegan egg (1tablespoon chia seeds and
  • 3 tablespoons of water, let sit for 10 minutes)
  • 1 scoop of VegiDay chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder (optional)
  • Garnish with walnuts, cacao nibs and maple syrup


  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth
  2. Heat coconut oil over medium-heat, wipe excess oil away (too much oil causes over browning). Cook two min each side.
  3. Top your pancakes with walnuts for extra omega three, cacao nibs and maple syrup.
