granola pancakes

not sure why
i seem to believe that
every time i make and/or eat pancakes
it is a blog worthy event
even i
am beginning to tire
of me

but listen
the reason these pancakes are so special
is because they were inspired by breakfast 
at a general store 
noank, connecticut
when we walked in to

Carsons General Store
it was like walking back in time

today, it represents how
people in this small tourist town outside of mystic, connecticut
still commune
we sat at a small table at the back of the store
watching the morning ritual
old-timers chatting and gathering their morning read
carafes of coffee emptied as the village crier
did her position proud
we sat and listened
asked a bit about the place
family owned for over 100 years
ate pancakes
delicious granola pancakes
Carsons is a place

that you want to be a part of
or if you are me
you wish you owned
which is highly unlikely
since i couldn't even get them to give me the recipe
so this version is my own
and also quite good
especially when drenched in maple syrup
Granola Pancakes
(printable recipe)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3-1/2 cup dark brown sugar (i use less sugar because we use a lot of maple syrup around here, and i don't like them getting too sweet)
2 eggs
2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup (approx) granola
(for my recipe click here)
butter or pan spray for cooking
mix all ingredients except the granola together and let rest for about 30 minutes.  after you pour the batter to the desired shape/size sprinkle granola across the top--it will cause the pancake to spread a bit.  cook as normal and flip when ready.  serve with a bit of butter and lots of maple syrup.  


  1. Pancakes are always blog worthy! We love pancakes around here! I know I would absolutely love these, not so sure about the kids though, thanks!

  2. Oh, Christy I think pancakes are always blog worthy! What a great place to visit. I love the granola on these pancakes - a fun crunch!

  3. Carson's General Store looks positively enchanting! I must go there some day! Your pancakes sound fantabulous! My husband makes a granola pancake with fresh raspberries and coconut, but we may have to try yours to shake things up a bit. I love the fact that you use some whole wheat flour and the dark brown sugar!

  4. these look interesting. I've never had granola pancakes but they sound delicious.
