Pancakes are one thing that I prefer to make from scratch. Most people would rather just the boxed mix but I am a firm believer in making my own pancakes, which is mostly because then I can make fun, healthy concoctions. I made this recipe which is egg free and low calorie. They were really good but I do plan on improving the recipe in the future.
I used this recipe from Foodie Fiasco and instead of just plain pancakes I added blueberries for a sweet and fun touch to the dish. One of the reasons I love this recipe is because it is so simple, all you do is combine the ingredients and together and pour into a skillet. Simple, easy, and quick. For me, recipes that allow me to move fast in the morning is always a plus. I have a hard time making breakfast food because there just simply isn’t enough time.
I’ve been in a pancake and waffle mood lately. Typically, these are foods that I only eat when I indulge, but recently, I’ve been craving them on a normal morning, which is fine because they are so yummy and delicious. Also, this is a great step for me in self improvement because I’ve been allowing myself to eat them normally. My relationship with all kinds of food has significantly improved. I don’t have negative association of certain foods and food fears, and I allow myself to relax and eat what my body wants and needs, rather than what I believe is “healthy.”
So overall, I’ve made some big steps in self acceptance and recovery this year, and I plan on going deeper into that development in another blog post. Also, I’ve been super MIA lately on my blog because my life has been super hectic right now, but I plan to start updating more regularly. I update my instagram more frequently so follow me on there if you want to more updates, more often 🙂 But for right now, enjoy these yummy blueberry pancakes!

What you need
*I doubled the original recipe, so if you want the original measurements, just halve these
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
sweetener, to taste (I used coconut sugar)
What To Do
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until completely combined. Allow the batter to sit for a minute while the pan is heating up.
Spray a skillet with cooking spray (I used coconut oil spray) and heat over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, pour the batter into the pan in 2 tablespoon rounds (or larger, depending on desired size) and cook until golden, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for a few more minutes, then transfer to a plate.
Note* these pancakes have a pretty strong whole wheat flavor, which I like, but if you aren’t on board with it, you could always use regular flour 🙂
Hope you liked these pancakes and are enjoying your morning!
