One of the great things about pancakes is how versatile they are. You can really get creative with flavors and additions for a yummy twist. Cranberry has always reminded me of Fall and we do a lot of baking with cranberries so naturally dried cranberries were the perfect fit for this recipe.

These hearty pancakes are exactly what I was looking for. They have a delicious crunch to them thanks to the addition of Grape Nuts Original cereal. The Grape Nuts Original cereal is packed full of dietary fiber which help keeps us fuller, longer.

They are the perfect breakfast on these chilly Fall mornings. I whipped up a batch of these over the weekend for the family and they loved them. Even my picky eater went back for seconds.

First, I prepared all my ingredients so I was ready to go. In my food processor, I chopped up one cup of rolled oats.

In a large bowl, I mixed my dry ingredients first. Just flour, baking soda, baking powder, brown sugar, rolled oats and one cup of Grape Nuts Original Cereal.

Once that was combined, I mixed in the wet ingredients – milk and an egg.

Then they were ready to cook.

In a pre-heated pan, I added I scoop of the mix for each pancake. To keep them uniform in size and shape for easy cooking, I use a cookie scoop for scooping the batter up.
