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!
