We all had that one friend (me) whose parents did not allow them to eat sugary cereals for breakfast. Most of the time they would feed us granola instead, but tbh I’m not complaining. Granola is my childhood favorite cereal because it never got soggy, unlike other cereal. Instead of using syrup, these granola pancakes have Danimals, which is the only way my parents could get me to eat “yogurt”. This healthier take on pancakes is guaranteed to make your mom and dad proud.
