Dark Chocolate Blueberry Pancakes

I love the weekends because that means that my husband makes breakfast. I am not against eating cereal or a granola bar but when you eat it 5 days out of the week, it is nice to have a good hearty breakfast. Pancakes are one of my husbands specialties and his favorite breakfast food. So when he is in charge of pancakes you know that they won't be plain and boring. He usually always makes them with a wheat and oatmeal base so that way they are not only heart healthy but they are hearty. This weekend he decided to throw in frozen blueberries and dark chocolate. If you have fresh blueberries, by all means use them. However, they are not cheap enough for me to buy and well frozen work for me just fine and are cheaper.

  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 c. oatmeal, ground
  • 6 Tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 c. blueberries, pureed
  • 1 c. blueberries, whole
  • 1/2 c. dark chocolate chips

  1. Mix the flour, oatmeal and baking powder.
  2. Add in buttermilk, applesauce, eggs and pureed blueberries and mix until there are no lumps.
  3. Carefully stir in the whole blueberries and chocolate chips. Be careful not to mash the blueberries.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled skillet over medium heat. Scoop 1/4 - 1/2 cup of batter on a hot skillet and cook until bubbles begin to form and break; flip.
