Looking for a healthy pancakes recipe? A while back we went to Cracker Barrel and I tried their Multi Grain Granola Pancakes and thoroughly enjoyed them. Since then, I have been on a quest to make them at home. I put this recipe together and think they may actually be better than the ones at Cracker Barrel. Give them a try and decide for yourself!

You know what? You could even add some fresh blueberries to these if you want! I think I'll try that next time!

Here's what you are going to need:

1 cup of water
2 Tablespoons of Butter
1/3 cup of multi-grain cereal (I used Bob's Red Mill 7 grain)
1 cup of Special K Granola
2 Tablespoon honey
1 ¼ cup milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup of All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup of Whole Wheat Flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Here's what you need to do:

Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until combined. It's okay if there a few lumps. You don't want to over mix your pancakes or they will be tough.

Preheat your griddle or non stick pan. You'll know it's hot enough if you sprinkle a couple of drops of water onto the pan and the water drops “dance” across the pan. Use a piece of waxed paper to spread a small amount of vegetable shortening over the surface of the pan.

Pour ¼ cup of the pancake batter onto the hot griddle. This would be where you would add some fresh blueberries if you want. Just sprinkle a few on top of each multigrain pancake before you flip them.

Cook until golden brown and you begin to see a few bubble form on top of the pancake. Flip and continue cooking until the other side is also golden brown and cook through.

I think you'll agree that this is a wonderful and healthy pancakes recipe!
