Blueberry Yogurt Whole Wheat Pancakes + Blueberry Maple Syrup

by Megan on June 22, 2011

I live for breakfast on the weekend. Sipping coffee with pancakes on the griddle makes everything better. (Except, I don’t have a griddle; I have a frying pan. And sometimes the pancakes run into each other, and then they look like snowmen.)

Do you like my pancakes with their blueberry syrup make-over? Is it too much? No way, these pancakes can totally pull off the bright syrup look. And honestly, there’s no such thing as too much blueberry-goodness for one breakfast.

Check out Bob’s photo on the flour. He just really cares about grinding flour in his red mill. It’s his favorite. I bet it’s listed as one of his interests on Facebook. Basically, I think Bob and I would hit it off, since we both have a thing for flour power and all.

These pancakes are as delicious as they are simple. There’s no buttermilk to wait around for, it doesn’t have to sit in the fridge over-night. They’re low-maintence, they’re polka-dotted, they’re a dream.

{Blog Love}┬áHave you guys visited the blog: Bite This yet?! You really should. Zoe’s the reason these pancakes happened. If only her and I were neighbors, we’d have pancake parties all the time with mimosas, I bet.

P.S. I really love FAT blueberries.

Blueberry Yogurt Whole Wheat Pancakes
Recipe from Bob’s Red Mill via Bite This

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup yogurt (I used low fat vanilla greek yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries

Directions:

  1. Sift dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, ,whisk the egg, milk and yogurt together, then add to dry ingredients. Stir until just combined and then stir in blueberries*. Don’t bother thinking the batter is too thin, it’ll be delicious, I promise.
  2. Fry pancakes on a buttered skillet, turning once. Makes about 10 pancakes.

* Since my blueberries were so big only a couple made it into each pancake. Next time I’m going to sprinkle the berries onto the batter while they’re frying.

What about raspberry maple syrup. Is that a thing?

Blueberry Maple Syrup
Recipe adapted from The Food Network

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup real maple syrup

Directions:

  1. Place the berries and maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat. As the berries cook and begin to burst, smoosh them with the back of a spoon. Cook for another minute. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl through a fine mesh strainer. Serve over pancakes!

This is a summer breakfast. These are my summer shoes.
