Pancake Project - Week 2 | Blackberry & Granola

Blackberry & Granola Pancakes.
This recipe combines my two favourite breakfast foods and is then dredged in maple syrup.  Does it get any better?  Nope.

You can find a version of this pancake on the menu at Hash House a Go-Go in Vegas.  If you've never been, let me give you the run down.  The pancakes at this restaurant are basically the size of a car tire. Seriously, they're huge!  I've died and gone to heaven.  Carb and maple syrup heaven. 

This is my take on it (obviously scaled down to an appropriate pancake size).  Fresh blackberries and my own homemade berry granola, cap off this basic pancake recipe.  Scrumptious.  The different textures and flavours make for some epic flapjacks, totally blog worthy.

Yep, today is a good day!  Pancake Project - Week 2
