Mood-Boosting Spirulina Pancakes

The Magazine: Mood-Boosting Spirulina Pancakes

We love these easy-to-make energizing green pancakes — a super health twist on everyone's favorite comfort breakfast.

Thanks to a short list of wholesome ingredients, these pancakes are fun and healthy for the whole family. Instead of white refined flour, these pancakes use cholesterol-lowering oats, a banana — which fights bloating with potassium — and spirulina, a blue-green algae that contains an impressive amount of antioxidants and B vitamins, which can help improve mood and brain power. Spirulina also gives this dish an Instagram-able blue hue. The other star, hemp milk, which is good for your skin (thanks, fatty acids), muscles and nerves. Breakfast will never be the same.

Cook Time

15 min.


Makes 2 to 3 medium-sized pancakes. Note: These pancakes are more flat than fluffy, which should leave your tummy feeling flat, too.


¾ cup rolled oats (we like Bob’s Red Mill Organic Rolled Oats or Whole Foods 365 brand)

1 medium banana

½ cup + ½ Tbsp. hemp milk (we like Living Harvest’s Tempt Unsweetened Original Hemp Milk) or you can make your own

¼ tsp organic spirulina (we recommend E3 Live or another high quality product)

100% organic maple syrup, for serving


1. Combine rolled oats, banana, and hemp milk in a blender. Blend until smooth.

2. Add in spirulina and blend until the color is evenly mixed throughout.

3. Heat up a frying pan on low to medium heat with some grass-fed butter or coconut oil and make pancakes like you normally would, flipping once the edges become firm.

4. Stack and serve with warm organic maple syrup.
