Guava Pancakes, Pomegranate Granola + Citrus Whipped Cream

Guava Pancakes

Guava Pancakes topped with Pomegranate Granola + Citrus Whipped Cream

Every Sunday Baby Bear and I make pancakes. The unfortunate part about this particular Sunday was the fact that we had an empty fridge and I did not want to go to the supermarket. What are we to do? We look around and I found a package of Dominican Guava Paste. It is a conserve made of guava and sugar. Luckily, the shelf life on it far exceeds that of fresh fruit. I typically make flaky pastries called Pastelitos with it but, today it’s perfect for a big ole’ stacks of pancakes. Fortunately, I was able to scrounge an egg and repurpose one of her milk boxes for the milk for the remainder of the ingredients. Milk, eggs, guava… VOILA! Guava Pancakes!
