80--- Flaxey, Nutty, Oatey Blueberry Pancakes

Because everyone needs a pancake every now and then.

And because walnuts, oats, and blueberries are all AMAZING for you.  Bring on the fiber!

Flaxey, Nutty, Oatey Blueberry Pancakes
Makes 7-8 five inch pancakes

3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 Tbsp white sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp flax meal
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup almond milk
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup fresh (or frozen defrosted) blueberries

Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.  Whisk in milk and olive oil until just combined.  Gently fold in blueberries.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Drop 1/4 cup batter onto the skillet and allow to cook until bubbles form on the top.  Gently flip with a thin spatula, and cook on the other side for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer pancake to a plate and cover with a towel to keep warm.  Repeat making pancakes until batter is gone.

Serve with your favorite toppings!

  1. One of the best pancakes I have ever eaten was a Blueberry Crunch Pancake at a restaurant in Atlanta. I have tried to recreate it to no avail. This looks very similar and much healthier I am sure. Will probably try these tomorrow!
