In a medium size bowl, beat the egg, then stir in the milk and oil. Add dry ingredients and stir just til moistened. Stir in blueberries; batter should be slightly lumpy. Fill greased muffin cups, sprinkle the tops with a little sugar (or your sweetener of choice) before baking and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 min. Serve with honey butter.
Yield: one dozen
Note: These are also good without the blueberries. Add 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to batter, then bake as directed. Or add dried cranberries instead of blueberries!
1 & 1/2 teaspoon olive oil (or the kind you prefer)
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup quick oats (oatmeal)
1 & 1/2 teaspoon sugar (may omit or use sweetner of your choice)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix ingredients together with a wisk, then add –
1/4 cup of snipped up dried apricots. (can add more if you want more fruit! )
Mix together well. Fry in your skillet like any other pancakes. Serve warm with your favorite syrup. 😀
NOTE: You may use this basic pancake recipe and add any dried or fresh fruit you like. Fresh blueberries or snipped up strawberries in the batter or on top would also be good! 😀 Add in a little cinnamon if you want some spice.
Yield: 4-5 pancakes, depending on how big or small you want them! 😀

Use this recipe as a model for other granola combinations with different dried fruits, nuts, and spices. It should stay crisp for a week stored in an airtight container. If it loses its crunch, toast 3 to 5 minutes in a 350°F oven. Note: substituting agave or brown rice syrup for the honey and oil for the butter will result in a less crisp granola with smaller clusters.
