On our vacation in Chicago we found the best breakfast place called the West Egg. It was perfect for us to go have a big breakfast each morning and then spend the rest of the day walking around & seeing the city.
The first day I had what they called Crunchberry Pancakes (gotta love the name!), which were Blueberry Pancakes with granola in them. They were AMAZING! So of course that is what I had the next two days as well!
When we got home & I saw blueberries for sale at the grocery store, I knew I had to try to re-create the recipe at home! Here is what I came up with:
Blueberry Granola Pancakes
1 cup whole wheat flour (you can use white flour too, but I only had whole wheat flour at home)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbs sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup granola
Mix together flour, baking powder, and sugar. In a seperate bowl beat egg and add vanilla, and milk. Mix the egg/milk mixture with flour until well incorporated. Add blueberries and granola. Heat a medium skillet with a bit of butter or cooking spray. Pour in batter and flip when the top gets bubbly. Serve with toppings of your choice. We added a few fresh blueberries and of course Real Wisconsin Maple Syrup!
All in all, I think they turned out pretty good! If you eat the pancakes all by themselves they seem to need a little extra sugar in the batter, but after I added syrup the amount of sweetness was just right!
