Date, Cashew, and Maple Granola Pancakes

  • Author: Misfits Market




  • 3 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole cashews
  • 2/3 cup dried dates (or 5 large Medjool dates), roughly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 big pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pancake Batter

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. To make the granola, preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  3. In a large bowl, add dry ingredients: rolled oats, dates, cashews, cinnamon, and salt. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Add maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla. Mix again to combine.
  5. Pour granola onto the lined sheet pan and spread evenly. Bake, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 30-40 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and let granola cool completely.
  7. Meanwhile, make your pancake batter: Put dry ingredients in a bowl, make a well, and then add wet ingredients.
  8. Put butter in a pan and bring to medium heat. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pour batter into hot pan. Sprinkle granola on top of the pancake in an even layer.
  9. Flip when bubbles start appearing. Your pancake is completely done once both sides are crispy and golden.
  10. Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup. Or, consider adding yogurt, fresh fruit like mango, strawberries, and blueberries—whatever you have on hand!
