Blueberry Pancakes

I didn’t include toppings in the recipe since I know everyone likes to serve their pancakes differently. My favorite for these is a little bit of light butter spread to melt on top (I use Land-O-Lakes), a dusting of powdered sugar, and a handful of extra blueberries. If you warm those blueberries in the microwave for 20-30 seconds first so that they burst when your fork hits them, even better.

Blueberry Pancakes

Yield: 3 (2 pancake) servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 (5.3 oz) container nonfat Blueberry Greek Yogurt (I used Dannon Light & Fit)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup white whole wheat flour (my preference, you can use all-purpose or wheat if you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries

Directions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yogurt, egg and honey and stir until well combined. Add the flour and baking soda and stir together until a batter forms. Add the blueberries and gently mix into the batter.
  2. Mist a griddle pan with cooking spray and bring it over medium heat. Scoop a scant ¼ cup of batter onto the heated pan and use the back of a spoon to smooth it out into a flat(ish) circle. Repeat in batches (depending on how many pancakes fir on your pan at once) to form 6 pancakes. Cook on one side for 2-4 minutes until bottom is golden and pancake is “flippable.” If the batter is not firm on the bottom yet it needs more time. Once flipped cook another 1-2 minutes until golden on the other side as well. Repeat until you have 6 pancakes (pancakes in later batches may cook in less time).
