Add a little crunch to your morning routine by adding granola to your standard blueberry pancakes.
When the weekend arrives I prefer a breakfast that isn't your typical bowl of cereal. Saturday morning is the perfect time to whip up a pancake breakfast for the family.
My kids and I have been on a granola kick lately. I make it from scratch and we sprinkle it on our cereal and yogurt parfaits. I always have a container of it in the pantry.
So one weekend morning we decided to add it to our homemade pancakes for a little added crunch. The result was delicious.
These Blueberry Granola Pancake Stacks turned out fluffy and soft in only minutes. A drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkle of granola on top and breakfast was on the table in minutes.
Adding granola to your pancakes adds protein you wouldn't get in an ordinary stack of pancakes. Crispy oats, crunchy nuts and fresh blueberries are baked right inside. I usually make my pancakes from scratch but have been known to simply add granola to store bought pancake mix. It's just as delicious.
