Rockin’ and Rollin’

We’re pretty sure it has been ages since we’ve talked about pancakes over here- did you think we had given up eating them?

Of course, that would crazy talk!  Who in their right mind would ever give up eating pancakes?

Not us, that’s for sure!  Rest assured, there has been no shortage of pancakes over here, but our pancakes have been looking a little different lately…

You see, we’ve discovered a new way to make pancakes, and quite frankly we may never eat them any other way ever again!

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the pancake parfait roll-up!

Seriously people, this is a genius idea!  It’s a fruit-and-yogurt parfait all wrapped up in a thick, fluffy pancake- does it get any better than that?

This recipe is inspired by an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives seen while doing hamstring curls at the gym.  That’s right, we watch foodie shows while lifting weights…

Unfortunately there was no sound to accompany the show (yes, we watch silent foodie shows while lifting weights…) so we have no idea what restaurant was being featured and cannot properly give credit to whoever came up with this fantastic idea.

But we can share it with the world!

So what is so great about a pancake roll-up?  It takes about half  the time of regular pancakes!  Think about it- one giant pancake vs. making a whole bunch of small ones?  Some of you cool kids might have one of those awesome pancake griddles that have enough space to cook a million pancakes all at once, but for those of us who don’t, this is a huge time-saver!

And the faster you can cook pancakes, the sooner you can eat them.  And of course, fluffy pancake + creamy yogurt + sweet fruit + crunchy granola = breakfast heaven. 🙂

So go make use of all the delicious fruit that is hitting its prime right now, and make yourself this to-die-for breakfast- you may never eat pancakes the same way again!

Pancake Parfait Roll-Up

DSCN6139

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

2/3 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

1 egg, beaten
2/3 c. buttermilk
1 tbsp maple syrup

1 c. yogurt
1 c. fruit of choice
3/4 c. granola

Directions:

Preheat a large frying pan sprayed with cooking spray.

Combine the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.  In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined.  Divide the batter in half and pour onto the frying pan.  Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles begin to form on the surface and the edges begin to firm.  Flip and cook for another 2 minutes, then remove to a plate.  Repeat with the rest of the batter.

Spread the pancake with yogurt then sprinkle with fruit and granola.  Roll up and top with the rest of the yogurt, fruit and granola.  Drizzle with a little maple syrup if desired.
