Granola Pancakes

Granola Pancakes (from A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock and Roll)

2 cups flour (white or whole wheat)

1 cup granola

2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder 

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 1/4 cups buttermilk

2 eggs

3-4 tablespoons melted butter

In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir this with a whisk and then stir in the granola.  In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients.  (If using all whole wheat flour, reserve one of the egg whites.  Beat the egg white until soft peaks form and fold this in as the last ingredient.  This will help dense whole wheat pancakes to be 'light and fluffy'.)  Stir the wet ingredients into the dry.  If the mixture seems to thick, thin with a little bit more buttermilk. 

Pour your pancakes onto a hot, greased griddle.  When bubbles start to form on the top and the sides begin to set, flip the pancake and continue cooking.

We served ours with fresh strawberries, an extra sprinkling of granola, and homemade pancake syrup.
