Wholesome Pancakes from a Mix


pancake_mix

I know Monday’s – all the fun and chores over the weekend, and here we are back to another Monday.  Today was not so cold and I felt like something fruity.  While I was shopping for cereal yesterday, I found this “Hudson Mill” pancake mix and immediately grabbed it.  I don’t even know what made me grab this box – may be the colorful packing or the ingredients ?  :).  I made pancakes from this mix a couple of times and yes, they were really good.  I have tried the whole wheat buttermilk pancake mix and the one with flax seed.

So this morning I thought to give it a twist.  Throw some goodies into it and see how it turns out.  I had some fresh blueberries in the refrigerator and some fragrant toasted granola in my kitchen cabinet.  I added these to the mix and the pancakes turned out fantastic – soft with bubbly blueberries and a little bit chewy from the granola.  So here is the recipe according to the package directions:

Ingredients:

For the pancake from the package:

  • 3/4 cups pancake mix
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Additions:

  • 2 tablespoons toasted granola
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries

Method:

  • Make the pancake batter according to package directions (mix all the pancake ingredients)
  • Add granola and blueberries and mix
  • Add a little butter to a pancake griddle or skillet and when hot, add a spoonful of batter and cook for a minute
  • Turn over and cook for about one to two minutes
  • Serve with your favorite syrup and butter if you like

Enjoy this simple but a wholesome healthy breakfast.

Makes about 4-6 pancakes.
