Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

These pancakes are heartier and healthier than traditional flapjacks. You are going to love the oatmeal and berries in these babies. Breakfast is served! 


   Man oh man, it has been a little while since I had a chance to post with the folks of Foodie Extravaganza.  A combination of themes that I didn't have any super great recipes for and being way too busy for my own good got in the way.  But when I saw this month's theme was pancakes I knew I had to jump in!  We love pancakes! There are so many delicious things you can do with them too.  I can't wait to see what everyone made.

    Jax isn't too picky or refined when it comes to his pancakes.  A regular old flapjack with a little syrup drizzled on top will do him fine.  Sometimes he wants them cut so he can eat them with a fork, but most of the time he just folds them in half and eats them like a taco.  There is something so simple and delicious about a pancake like that.  The problem is I've already shared my family's favorite pancake recipe and folding them like a taco isn't exactly groundbreaking enough to turn it into it's own post!

      Sometimes I try to sneak a bit of nutrition into Jax's favorite foods.  That is what happened with my Healthy Whole Grain Banana Pancakes and they are a new favorite too.  So I took that idea and changed the fruit to blueberry.  These pancakes are full of yummy stuff!  There is plenty of oatmeal, yogurt and fruit to make you feel good about your breakfast!

       These would be great drizzled with some blueberry syrup and I thought about making some, but in the end butter and syrup won out.  Though there were plenty that were eaten straight off the griddle with nothing between us and the pancakes but our hot little fingers!

    1. We love shaking up our pancakes, especially if we can add a bit of nutrition. Thank you!

  14. The recipe calls for 1 cup plain yogurt. Is that one measuring cup or one purchased cup of yogurt that is usually 5-6 oz. by weight?

    1. 1 cup measured, 8 oz. Sorry for the confusion! I tend to use plain yogurt frequently in recipes, so I buy the big tub and keep it on hand.

  15. You had to know that this recipe would kill me! I have dinner on the stove, a nice shrimp, sausage, smoked sausage concoction with beans and other stuff, and I was so looking forward to it, it smelled so good cooking. But now I want pancakes! I am really in love with the fact that there is so little flour, I will be able to switch out my gluten free baking mix and I have an entire bag of GF oats in the pantry. I was waiting for something good to do with them, and this is it! These sound so delish! I have a new item to add to my addiction! YUM!
