Blueberry Pancakes

My favorite family tradition is Sunday Breakfast. It’s day when we slow things down to make a proper start of the day, and baking is a perfect activity to bring our loved ones together.  Great choice for this is a batch of light and fluffy pancakes. The pancakes are quick to make and the ingredients are items we usually have at hand. My favorite pancakes are these: blueberry.  They provide a healthier alternative to most of the traditional pancake recipes because they contain blueberries, spelt flour and coconut oil. Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants which are associated with preventing cancer and health problems related to inflammation.  The fibers from spelt flour help control your blood sugar and keep you feeling full until lunch. You’ll love this blueberry pancakes and the fact that they are super healthy and delicious.

Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil if needed. Serve pancakes warm with maple syrup and the remaining blueberries.
