It’s the weekend! Yay! And my family and I usually try to make some sort of larger family breakfast at least one day on the weekends. This is one of our favorite go to recipes. Easy, healthy and best of all they taste amazing!
Healthy Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes
1 cup wheat flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon (or less) salt
1 1/2 cup old fashioned whole oats
2 cups milk
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup olive oil (or applesauce)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
Preheat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat.
In a large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder & salt.
In a small bowl, mix oats and milk. Whisk in eggs and olive oil (or I use applesauce).
Pour into the flour mixture all at once. Continue mixing until smooth. Gently fold in blueberries.
Pour batter about 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared griddle. Cook 1 to 2 minutes until bubbly. Flip, and continue cooking until lightly browned. (I find I have to turn them a couple times to make sure the batter cooks evenly around the frozen blueberries.)
My kids love these! With the blueberries and a bit of syrup they are just the right amount of sweetness! Add a couple strips of turkey bacon and you have the perfect healthy family friendly breakfast!
Note: These also freeze well! This recipe says it makes 8 servings. So I make them all and freeze the leftovers. Great for a fast healthy breakfast for your kids any day!
