Let’s take a beat and talk about pancakes. Love em or hate em?? Okay that was basically rhetorical because who doesn’t LOVE pancakes!? I am pro pancakes and when I was growing up I was chocolate chip all the way. I had the biggest sweet tooth as a kid (okay and into adulthood) and loved the kind of pancakes that were not only stuffed with chocolate chips but also had some on top that melted because they were hot and also had some whipped cream and powdered sugar. Okay WOW – looking back it is insane how much sugar I would pack into those mornings. Things and priorities have changed and although, yes on occasion Matt and I will split a short stack of choco chippers, if we want pancakes on a weekday, you gotta keep it light! So my adult self? I LOVE blueberry pancakes! I love California Giant Berry Farms blueberries in my pancakes because they are still little bursts of sweetness but so much better for you! They are packed with vitamin K, vitamin C and manganese – so yeah, pancakes are now healthy. The best part about this recipe is that it only has a few ingredients and comes together in a blender!
