Whole Wheat Oatmeal Blueberry Pancakes

pancake2

I remember my dad making Aunt Jemima pancakes every Sunday morning.  To this day, I still love my buttermilk pancakes drizzled with maple syrup. I am always trying to recreate recipes to make them healthier.  To these pancakes I added some rolled oats and blueberries for some extra fibre, antioxidants, and deliciousness.

I am lucky, my little Miss E loves to help make pancakes as much as she loves to eat them. I think I spend just as much time telling her not to eat the flour and oats than making the actual pancakes.  I ‘ll turn my head for one second and I catch this little grin with her hand in the flour or oats. So funny, she is such a “ham”. Thankfully, she understands not to eat raw eggs or as she calls them “rotten” eggs. I have this vision of her telling her daycare buddies her mama says not to eat “rotten” eggs in the pancake batter.  I love this age, I think I say that about every age but this little munchkin has me laughing daily.

These pancakes turned out perfect the first time, fluffy and delicious. Miss E had 2 servings for breakfast and dinner, plus veggies I promise. Miss Q liked them too, she had blueberries all over her and the highchair. These pancakes are a regular Sunday morning breakfast in our household.
