Hmmmm, granola or pancakes for breakfast? How about both! These hearty berry granola pancakes are made using whole wheat flour and have granola and blueberries mixed into the batter.
You can make the mix ahead of time using the dry ingredients to save some time in the morning. Or if you’d rather, you can use the same idea using a instant pancake mix like Kodiak Cakes and just mix the granola and blueberries into the batter. Or you can make these ahead of time and freeze them. I have included instructions for reheating if you want to go that route!
Now, I think any time you can incorporate berries with pancakes, life just gets better. I especially love blueberries when mixed into pancake batter. I love how they pop when you eat them. Now, I don’t like the raspberries mixed in, I think they get too mushy when cooked in the pancake, so they get added on top!
