Blueberry Pancakes

This is so not blueberry season yet somehow the plump juicy super expensive blueberries at Costco just called to me. So I bought them. Much to the delight of my children who love fresh blueberries. So when pancakes were requested, the unanimous thoughts amongst the kids were "Blueberry pancakes, mom!". Haha, actually, they totally wanted chocolate chip pancakes however, we can make chocolate chip pancakes anytime. So blueberry was the runner up. Mine were a bit thick as I didn't squish the batter down enough but it didn't seem to matter to the kids who ate them up quickly along with some leftover ham and an egg/egg white mixture.

Blueberry Pancakes

1/2 cup flour (2.25 oz)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (2.38 oz)
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 cup vanilla fat free yogurt
2 tbsp. butter
2 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup egg beaters or 2 eggs

Combine flours and next 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine yogurt and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl, add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth. Pour about 1/4 cup on preheated pan on medium heat with cooking spray. Top each pancake with blueberries. Makes about 8 pancakes. Batter is thick and will need to be spread with spatula.

Total calories = 796

  1. When blueberries were in season months ago, I froze many many packages of them. For winter. And have I used any of them? No. Of course not.

    Now you have given me a reason to!
