Move over cinnamon buns, there’s a new favorite breakfast treat in town. Whip up these quick and easy pancakes that not only feature plant-based protein, they also have some hidden greens in them too.

  • 2 servings Vega® Protein & Greens
  • ⅓ cup Silk®Unsweetened Almondmilk (in addition to what you’re adding into your pancake mix)

  • ½ serving Vanilla Vega® Protein & Greens
  • 1 heaping Tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ cup pancake batter
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tsp maple syrup


  • Mix pancake mix, Vega Protein & Greens and almond ilk in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

  • Mix together cinnamon mixture ingredients into a small bowl, and set aside.

  • Heat pan or griddle over medium heat, add coconut oil.

  • With a mixing spoon pour individual pancakes or use a 1/3 cup of batter to make each pancake.

  • As pancakes cook, add a cinnamon swirl on top of each pancake (uncooked side).
