Very Blueberry Oatmeal Pancake

Good morning! I love Monday holidays! It feels like a Monday, but it is already Tuesday. Love it!

Breakfast this morning was an oatmeal pancake with fresh blueberries. So delish! The blueberries totally made this meal! Yuuuuumm!


Blueberry Oatmeal Pancake

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Directions:
  1. Mix together oats, egg whites, and blueberries with baking powder, vanilla extract and cinnamon in a bowl.
  2. Preheat a skillet, spray with non-stick cooking spray, and pour batter into skillet. I recommend using a small (approx. 8") skillet to help mold the batter into a "pancake" shape.
  3. Cook pancake until batter is firm on bottom, then flip and cook another 60 seconds (or until pancake is cooked all the way through).
  4. Top with maple syrup (or whatever else you like!)

Breakfast from above on our new placemats... I received a set of four (with matching napkins) at my wedding shower this weekend. The pattern reminds me of the Vera Bradley prints. So cute!

That pancake looks so fluffy, plump and delicious. Blueberries are SO good in pancakes. I think I might have some fresh ones somewhere in the fridge and if I do, your recipe is what they will have to go towards ;)

Awe, it was sad to read your posts backward - you were so hopeful for the day and it turned it to be a 'meh' day... at least it's a short week!
