Healthy Blueberry Pancakes

 Fluffy homemade pancakes are made with heart healthy oats and bursting with blueberries. Guaranteed to become your weekend favourite!

Ever since my kids were old enough for solid food, pancakes have been one of their favourite foods. Anytime we go visit my parents, my mom has to make pancakes for the kids. It's actually really sweet. Pancakes are such a big part of our meals, we often have them for dinner, paired with fruit salad. No matter what time of day it is, pancakes are always enjoyed in our household.

I've always made my pancakes from scratch and I've made them so many times I know the recipe by heart. The kids always request the addition of chocolate chips in their pancakes, but when I feel like they need a bit more nutrition, I make blueberry pancakes. There's just something about delicious bursts of sweet berries, that make the pancakes that much more delicious.

I made these pancakes healthier by using some whole wheat flour and heart healthy oats. It adds a great amount of fiber and lowers blood pressure. Oats are also known to help reduce hunger, by keeping you full for a longer period of time. Even with the use of these healthy ingredients, these pancakes are deliciously warm and fluffy disks of goodness.

Equipment needed for this recipe

  • large and small mixing bowls
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • wire whisk
  • laddle
  • non stick skillet

Healthy Blueberry Pancakes

1 C all purpose flour
1 C whole wheat pastry flour
1 C rolled oats
2 Tbs baking powder
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 C milk
1/4 C coconut oil, melted
2 Tbs coconut palm sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 C blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Preheat a non stick skillet over medium heat.

If using frozen berries, toss them with 2 Tbs flour.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut oil, sugar, vanilla and milk.

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, oats, baking powder and salt. 

Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix to combine. Gently fold in the blueberries.

Melt a small amount of coconut oil in the preheated skillet. Using the ladle, scoop out some batter and pour it into the skillet. Once small bubbles begin to form over pancakes, gently flip pancakes and cook for 2 minutes longer.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

50+ Creative Cottage Meal Ideas

When the warm weather hits many of us head to the cottage, to enjoy the sunshine and time near the water. Instead of always packing up burgers and hot dogs, I've rounded up over 50 creative meal ideas for delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Ever since I was little my family always enjoyed a few weeks camping at a near by provincial park, during the summer months. When us kids, became older and moved away, Mom and Dad bought a trailer which remained parked at a location, so we would often go and visit for a few weeks then too. My mom has always been an amazing cook and with her outside kitchen often made our family favourites, even at camp. Now that my SO and his family have a cottage, we are frequently there for most of the summer. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs seem to be our go to, so I wanted to collect new creative meals perfect to make while camping, or at the cottage.  Breakfast Recipes Healthy Banana Milkshake Thick, creamy banana milkshake made without ice cream, dairy, and

Sam & Cat Sloppy Waffles

 A nod to the popular preteen TV show Sam & Cat, these s loppy waffles pair classic sloppy joes with crisp waffles. Years ago, my daughter fell in love with a kids show called Sam and Cat. This show melds two shows the kids use to watch together. It stars Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) from iCarly and Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande) from Victorious. It's a witty and fun show and the kids loved the hijinks these two girls get into every week. In one particular episode, they get stuck inside a secret room, they find in their apartment (which use to be Cat's Nonna's before she moved to Elderly Acres). While they are stuck in the secret room, Cat mentions her idea of Sloppy Waffles, which pairs waffles and sloppy joes. Sam falls in love with the idea and once they are rescued by their friend Goomer, the show ends with the girls enjoying Sloppy Waffles. We recently watched the episode on Netflix, and the kids commented that we should try to make Sloppy Waffles. I thought it wa
