Whole Grain Granola Pancakes

When I was a girl, growing up, pancakes were a Saturday morning staple. My dad would get up early and whip out a boat-load of flap jacks. If we weren't already awake watching Saturday morning cartoons, the sheer smell of dad's pancake batter sizzling on the griddle was enough to lure us out of our snuggly beds on a chilly autumn morning..
Peef is the pancake maker around our house. While I have a tendency to wince at the thought of flipping pancakes (for fear of flipping them righ off the griddle), he wrangles them like an expert. And he's gotten pretty good at creating interesting pancake variations to boot.
One of my favorites is the double banana pancake -- banana puree incorporated into the batter, with sliced fried bananas and maple syrup on the side. But, his whole grain granola pancakes are a close second. They're chewy and hearty and ever-so-slighly sweet. And. unlike some wimpier pancakes. they really stick with you.

I'll bet these pancakes would be great with a side of fried apples. Or even some of those chopped fried bananas. But, they're also pretty darned good on their own. With a nice pat of butter and a bit of syrup.
