Happy Monday! Yesterday was not a good day for me. I thought I had a really bad cold but turns out it was probably allergies (by allergies I mean the worst I have ever had, didn’t know they could get so bad….allergies). The pollen around here is out of control. It’s on everything. Thanks to my husband and lots of allergy medicine, I was able to get plenty of rest yesterday and today I am feeling much better. So much better in fact that I woke up well before the twins and was super productive (win!). I brewed my coffee, made a batch of delicious Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes and got a photo shoot in. These pancakes were just what I needed this morning!
I found this recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes a few months back and have been in love with them ever since. I have made them SO many times. The recipe is very forgiving and they turn out really fluffy and delicious. The oatmeal in them keeps you fuller longer and gives you energy to start your day. We go through a ton of blueberries in our house. It’s the twins favorite fruit and they will eat them by the handful all day if I let them. So they really enjoy these pancakes too. Don’t have blueberries? Any berry will do. I even used bananas a couple times and they are amazing in these!
This recipe couldn’t be any easier to make. Just throw everything in one bowl and whisk together. Like I said its very forgiving so I don’t stress about measuring everything exactly (sometimes it’s too early in the morning to measure). This always makes more batter than I need, so I put the leftover batter in the fridge and use it the next day.
I am so glad I am feeling better…..now excuse me while I go eat a hundred of these pancakes…..
