Coconut Chia Granola Recipe

These days, granola is often thought of in health conscious crowds as more of a junk food than a health food.

And for good reason: most of the granola you buy in the store is loaded with sugars and added sweeteners, and is essentially just a higher calorie version of the standard junk cereal.

But granola doesn’t have to be bad for you—with the right ingredients, granola can be a healthy option on days when you just need something quick and don’t feel like making protein pancakes or oatmeal.

There are two keys to making granola a sensible breakfast or snack option: be aware of your portion sizes and pair it with protein.

Most granolas have a portion size of 1/4 to 1/3 cup—and this one is no exception. It’s dense with nutrients though and includes healthy fats, which will both help fill you up faster and keep you feeling full longer.

Adding protein to your meal will add to that feeling of fullness, as well as help keep your muscles fed and happy and keep you lean and fit. Greek yogurt, eggs, and protein powder (in a smoothie maybe) are all good choices to have with your granola.

Ok, now for how to actually make this really yummy coconut chia granola:

Protein Pancake Recipe: The (Real) Breakfast of Champions

There’s just something about pancakes that makes them the ultimate comfort food. 

Maybe it’s because they remind us of being kids, or maybe it’s because they go so well with bacon (or meatless bacon) and eggs.

Whatever it is, they’re delicious smothered in syrup, covered in fruit, or even topped with peanut butter if that’s your thing.

But, unfortunately, pancakes aren’t always the healthiest option out there. Typically loaded with white flour, sugar, and tons of carbs, they’re usually something to avoided or eaten in only small quantities on a few special days of the year.

That’s where these four-ingredient protein pancakes come in. They taste just like the real thing, but are packed with protein, and will keep you satisfied and full for hours.

Plus, you can eat the entire stack for a mere 314 calories!
