Pancakes are a beautiful thing. Hunter (and I) can easily grab and gobble them up. I love eating custard oatmeal, but it gets a little messy when I let Hunter grab it by the fistful. That’s BLW for you… messy. 🙂
Pancakes are not messy though! And are quite delicious. These blueberry yogurt protein pancakes are delicate ones made with mostly blueberry chobani, oats and eggs. Soft and thin pancakes. If you’re looking for fluffy pancakes, these are not them. As they cook the sugars in the blueberry begin to caramelize and give you the color that looks almost burnt, but they aren’t burnt! Just make sure to use a well oil pan or non-stick griddle pan. Since they are so delicate, any sticking will make them turn ugly quickly.
And we don’t want ugly pancakes.
Side note: is it weird to you that raspberries have little hairs growing out of them?? Kind of to me…
I made a double batch (which makes 8 pancakes) thinking that I would have enough left over for another breakfast during the week. Wrong. I ate 3. Then Hunter ate 2.5 pancakes! That boy LOVED them. We’ve also been chowing down on fresh raspberries, which are currently my favorite berry.
Add a smear of your favorite nut butter on top (PB for me!), throw on some fresh raspberries and gobble these yummy cakes up!

Tomorrow is another installment of Workout Wednesday!
The focus is on HIIT workouts. If you have a favorite one, email it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will get it included in the post!
What is your favorite berry? Are you a fluffy or thin pancake person?
I am already highly caffeinated and have about an hour before Hunter wakes. Time to see what all I can do in that time!
