UV, our chocolate chef, got creative using two of the things she loves most: cereal and pancakes. Naturally, she used her signature ingredient: the vegan chocolate hazelnut spread we make in house.


  • 1 cup cacao shell flour pancake & waffle mix (you can substitute with ¾ cup gluten free flour and ¼ cup unsweetened organic & natural cacao powder)
  • 1/4 cup organic brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp organic coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup oat milk (can substitute with any other milk)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Top with Blue Stripes vegan chocolate hazelnut spread, and Blue Stripes Cacao Nibs


1. In a medium bowl, combine all the dry ingredients:cacao flour mix, organic sugar, baking powder and salt.

2. In a small bowl stir together the coconut oil, milk, apple cider vinegar and vanilla.

3. Pour the liquids over the dries and whisk until smooth. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.

4. Spray the pan with coconut oil spray. Scoop a small amount of pancake batter onto a nonstick pan over medium heat.

5. When the top begins to bubble, flip the pancake and cook until golden.

6. Place all the tiny pancakes into a wide bowl and top with vegan chocolate hazelnut spread and cacao nibs.


Cacao cereal is the number one seller in the cereal category, but this homemade version includes a natural combination of unique flavors and health benefits thanks to using all parts of the cacao fruit: shell, fruit and beans.
An explosion of Cacao’s natural benefits for a boost of morning energy: Dried cacao fruit instead of raisins. Cacao nibs instead of crushed almonds. Whole cacao granola with cacao shell flour and 100% cacao chocolate instead of the common vanilla granola you know all too well.
Because it's not just about cacao nibs. It's about the whole cacao wellness benefits and discovering the unknown flavors of the most known fruit in the world.
A few years ago, acai was everywhere. We love acai and appreciate its benefits, but once you taste the cacao fruit and its tropical lemony flavor combined with the vanilla orchid twist, we just know you’ll join team whole cacao!
