Blueberry Granola Crunch Pancakes-United States

Blueberry Crunch Pancakes

Is there anything better than pancakes topped with granola? I should think not. Last weekend we were doing a ton of eating out so instead of my usual Friday night culinary masterpiece, I opted to make a different sort of breakfast for Saturday instead (read: non-cereal). I found a nice and easy pancake recipe from my Tupelo Homey Cafe cookbook (should you ever find yourself in the the Asheville, North Carolina area I definitely recommend dining there). One of the things I like most about pancakes is that there are innumerable ways to make them (they’re like eggplant in that regard, another food I absolutely love).

I did make a few tweaks to the recipe as the original one called for homemade granola (read: no), and dried blueberries (I’m not even sure where I would go to find such a thing…). All in all, you can never go wrong with pancakes…at any time of the day (our breakfast was more like brunch as we ate around 1 PM).
