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

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
