Gluten-Free Granola Pancakes

If you’re looking to make this weekend feel special and looking to really take in the moment and slow down, pancakes can help do that. If you don’t believe me, just try these Gluten-Free Granola Pancakes on a Saturday or Sunday morning and watch how your day becomes all about enjoying the special moments. Pancakes are a labor of love – they take mixing, then individually cooking and monitoring each one, flipping one by one as they each get to the perfect level of golden brown. And of course, pancakes are meant to be shared – with friends, family, even your neighbors.

These aren’t your ordinary pancakes. They’re made with Apple Cinnamon Snacking Granola from Flax 4 Life. This granola is loaded with omega-3s and lignans from the use of flax. Adding granola to your pancake batter is a simple way to jazz up pancakes and make your breakfast companions feel special. Flax 4 Life’s granola is not just gluten free, but it’s also nut free.
