Healthy Blueberry Pancakes... Say what???


I am a pancake lover. 
I am a high carb, super unhealthy breakfast lover.
My husband loves greasy meaty breakfasts, I love donuts, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, waffles, etc.
So you get the point.
Unfortunately, pancakes aren't so hot for the body so I try to ignore the longing in my stomach for some delicious pancakes every morning.
But then, one morning, God must have known I was needing pancakes.
 I was checking twitter and low and behold, my Pastor from Oklahoma's wife tweeted this recipe.
So of course, I took it as a sign from God and had to make these pancakes.
This wonderful gift is delicious and not to mention pretty dang healthy.
No sugar is in there what so ever.
But you'd never be able to tell.
So follow along, enjoy my "Pioneer Woman Wannabe" tutorial 
And then go make you some!

First, here is everything you need.
(yes I planned it out and organized everything so neatly on the counter for you)


Now you must make sure you are using whole wheat flour.
Now I could go into the health benefits of white vs. whole wheat, but I'll save that for another post.
So just trust me... you won't be able to tell your using healthier flour.... Promise.


Now that we are clear on that... let's move on.
Mix together 2 cups of whole wheat flour, 4 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of baking soda, 1/2 tsp of salt.
Once you have your dry ingredients combined then add the good stuff to make it look like this...


Add 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of plain yogurt, 4 tablespoons of olive oil, and 2 eggs.
Whisk all that together until just combined.

Now this next part is optional, but I STRONGLY recommend it....


1 cup of blueberries!!!!
I didn't have fresh ones on hand since Little Miss will eat a whole container in a setting,
so I used frozen and it worked just fine.
Fold in those blueberries, nice and gently like... 


Then cook them up.
These guys tend to spread a little more than normal pancakes, so read that as a little goes a long way.


Get them brown on both sides and then sit down and enjoy your wonderful breakfast.


Oh yeah and don't forget your syrup.
What's a pancake without syrup?
We use the all natural kind around here.
And I have to say this is one of my favorite breakfasts and it's so much better for you then a donut.

So please try this.
Not for me, but for you.
And your kids... they'll love you.
And of course your spouse will love you and then best of all.....
You'll day will be a good one because you started it off with these.

ENJOY!
