Cherry Almond Pancakes – I declare myself the winner!

Cherry Almond Pancakes

 

The idea for this was a contest for the best looking pancake photo which I decided to enter at the very last-minute so I had to go with the ingredients I had on hand.  Of course I thought my picture was by far the best (who doesn’t like their own work) and the winner was to be announced that day.  Alas, nothing more has been said about it and no winner was announced.  I have therefore declared myself the winner!  It turns out that they were really good as well as photogenic – simple but a great breakfast or dessert idea.  They are even relatively healthy by my standards with fruit, nuts, no added sugar and could even be improved with whole wheat or some other healthier pancake.  As I said, I had to go with what I had on hand, so today is completely brought to you by Costco.  I used the Kruzteas Pancake Mix, Diamond Sliced Almonds and frozen dark sweet cherries – obviously, you can use your favorite pancake recipe.  The recipe is:  

1.  Make the pancakes according to the package directions.  

2.  In another small/medium skillet (depending on how much you want to make) melt a couple tablespoons of butter and pour in 2-3 cups of the frozen cherries and 1/2 cup of sliced almonds for 4 servings.  Cook until the cherries start to soften and give off some of the juice.  Pour over the pancakes and sprinkle with a few more almonds.   

3.  Eat.
