Whole Wheat Blueberry Granola Pancakes

Wake up to a stack of Whole Wheat Blueberry Granola Pancakes! The best way to start the day! 

Whole Wheat Blueberry Granola Pancake Recipe from

I’ve always been a morning person. I love waking up early to get my day going. During the summer, I was waking up around 5:30 to go running outside. Well, within the past couple of weeks my morning light has disappeared and the mornings have become chilly. I don’t like to run in the dark by myself, so I have been using our elliptical or waiting to run a little later.

The other day I was waiting to go on my run and decided to make breakfast with my boys. Caleb asked for pancakes so we made Whole Wheat Blueberry Granola Pancakes and watched Curious George.

Blueberry pancakes are always a favorite. You can’t go wrong by adding plump juicy blueberries to whole wheat pancake batter!

I made these pancakes even better by adding NatureBox’s Wild Blueberry Flax Granola. We love snacking on the granola or eating it with yogurt, so why not add it to pancakes? Best decision ever!

 The granola added flavor and a slight crunch to the pancakes. I wanted to eat that big stack of pancakes all by myself!

Luckily, my boys helped me eat them! We topped the pancakes with butter, maple syrup, extra blueberries and granola.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Granola Pancakes were the perfect way to start the day. Plus, they gave me lots of energy to go on my mid-morning run! It was a win-win kind of morning!

We made a big batch so we could put some pancakes in the freezer. Caleb asks for blueberry pancakes almost every day and now he can have them without any work!

Whole Wheat Blueberry Granola Pancakes

Yield: Serves 6-8

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Whole wheat pancakes with blueberries and granola! Our family loves these pancakes!


2 cups Gold Medal whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup canola oil or melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries
1 cup granola (we used NatureBox Wild Blueberry Flax Granola)
Butter and maple syrup, for serving


1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Do not over mix. Gently stir in the blueberries and granola. The batter will be slightly lumpy.

2. Heat a griddle or pan to medium low heat. Coat with cooking spray. Drop about a 1/4 cup of batter onto heated skillet. Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more. Continue making pancakes until the batter is gone. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup, if desired.

    Granola ALWAYS makes blueberry pancakes taste better! We have a local breakfast cafe called Le Peep that serves “Granola Blues” blueberry and granola pancakes. So much fun to make them at home! Cannot wait to try Nature Box. Thanks for sharing, Maria. Pinning!

    I used to work at a place that served pancakes and granola. Someone used to always come in and ask us to make granola pancakes. I was always so annoyed since who orders something completely not on the menu but it was genius. So yummy!

  35. Bethany — September 28, 2013 @ 8:43 pm

    These look yummy! And believe it or not someday he will not want to watch Curious George anymore and you will find yourself missing that silly monkey. :) I was wondering about the buttermilk in these and other recipes you have posted. Do you ever substitute sour milk (with lemon juice or vinegar) for the buttermilk, and do you think it tastes just as good? And do you need to make any changes if you substitute regular milk? Thank you.
