When I first met my dear friend, Yvette Hetrick, a foodie and entertainer extraordinaire, many years ago, she rhapsodized about granola pancakes that she and her husband, Randy, would devour for weekend brunches in, I think it was, San Diego. when they were dating.
She has a memorable way of describing food and I was sold from her first mention. I have even tried to reproduce them before with no luck.
But, for some reason, I was craving them recently, my husband–who has cleaned up his eating act somewhat–had some Bare Naked Granola in the pantry, and I had some local Pungo strawberries fresh from the farmer’s market in the fridge.
My husband, a creature of habit and routine, is on an oatmeal kick as part of his new approach to eating. So I knew he wouldn’t want any pancakes, no matter how irresisistable to the rest of us. There was only one thing to do: create a recipe for a single serving that could be easily multiplied to serve a family or a crowd. And I’m so glad I did!
My fairly thick batter is the perfect consistency to support the granola. Be sure to serve them granola-side up so folks will know these are no ordinary pancakes even before the first bite!
Happy Father’s Day!
