I LOVE Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Michael and I LOVE to make breakfast together. I found a recipe for Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes and decided to try it out. I added blueberries instead of bananas and they turned out delicious! Top it with 100% pure maple syrup and you have a "real food" yummy breakfast.

Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes
Recipe from www.100daysofrealfood.com

  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon of fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 ¾ cups milk (you can use any kind – skim, 2% or whole)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted + butter for frying
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed (I used 1/2 of a small container of blueberries)
  • 100% pure maple syrup for serving
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until well mixed and then make a well (hole) in the center of the bowl by spreading the flour mixture to the sides of the bowl. Pour the honey, eggs, milk, and 2 tablespoons of melted butter into the well, then gradually whisk from the center outward until the ingredients are well combined but still a little lumpy. Do not over mix the batter. Very gently fold in the mashed bananas (and/or other berries).

Preheat a non-stick or cast iron griddle (or sauté pan) over medium-high heat. Set electric griddles at 370 degrees F. Your cooking surface will be ready when a drop of water flicked onto the surface dances and evaporates instantly. Allow some butter to melt then ladle the pancake batter forming circles on the griddle or pan.

When the pancakes have begun to bubble in the center and the underside is golden brown, use your spatula to flip them. Cook until the 2nd side is golden brown, and then keep on a platter in a warm oven (200 degrees F) while you cook the remaining pancakes. Serve with warm maple syrup and a side of fruit. And freeze the leftovers for another day!

Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Anna!! I am excited about your birthday dinner tonight!
What have you fallen in LOVE with today?
