That’s right! Blueberry pancakes have their own day of honor.  We took your basic pancake recipe and replaced the white flour with healthy white whole wheat flour(King Arthur makes this and it’s pretty easy to find in most grocery stores) and flax and whole grain flour.  Add some blueberries (fresh or frozen), local maple syrup and you have a warm and delicious mouthful of goodness.

Full Disclosure: We made these during the blizzard yesterday and had them for an afternoon snack…they’re not just for breakfast!

Below is a pic of the flax and whole grain flour that I used.  My sister-in-law picked this up for us at the Concord NH Food Coop and it’s very good.  Enjoy!
