My kids love pancakes. Because our weekday breakfasts are hectic and quick, pancakes are a favorite way of mine to get my kids fed and full before school. To boost the nutritional content of the typical pancake, I like to throw a few extras into the pancake batter.
Adding some bananas, granola, and a little cinnamon completely transforms the typical pancake, but in a way that is still appealing to my kids. The pancakes taste great, even without syrup, which is really convenient when we have to grab and go.
Banana and Granola Pancakes
2 Cups of Original Bisquick Mix
1 Cup of Milk
1/3 cup of Granola
1 banana, cut into small dice
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of butter
- In a medium bowl, mix the ingredients with a spatula or wooden spoon.
- Set a pan on medium heat on the stovetop. Melt a tablespoon of butter and spread it around.
- Using a ladle, pour the pancake batter into the pan in the pancake size you desire. Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, until large bubbles begin to appear in the batter. Flip the pancake and cook for another 2 minutes.
- Serve with maple syrup or dusted with confectioner’s sugar.
