2 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 c. milk

Blueberry Pancakes

1/2 c. Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 c. White Flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 TBSP sugar

1 TBSP milled flaxseed

1/2 tsp salt

1 beaten egg

1 cup milk

2 TBSP canola oil

1 pint blueberries

Directions: Mix dry ingredients in medium bowl (not blueberries). In a separate bowl mix egg, milk and canola oil. Press dry ingredients up against the side of their bowl to make a hole in the middle. Pour milk mixture in middle and stir until ingredients are all moist.

Take 1/4 cup of batter and pour in heated pan or griddle (cook over medium heat, coat pan with non-stick spray before cooking). Add blueberries to the cooking pancake batter, about 7-9 blueberries per pancake. When batter starts to bubble, flip pancake over and cook until pancake is cooked all the way through. Take out of pan or remove from griddle. Keep doing this until all the batter is used. Top with applesauce, yogurt, or syrup. Or eat plain, the blueberries make them naturally sweet!

These pancakes freeze well!
