Blueberry Pancakes!

Pancakes are a weekend breakfast staple around the Zufelt home. And I have a confesson: I really don't like plain pancakes. I can't STAND them! I HAVE to have "fancy" pancakes if you will. I usually make chocolatechip pancakes or blueberry pancakes and I have even make pumpkin pancakes! So last night when we were at Wally world (aka Walmart gross I know but Target is even worse right now) I saw a NEW cook this not that book! Needless to say I had to buy it (because I was HUNGRY!) and the first thing that caught my eye? Blueberry Pancakes of course! So we rushed home and made them right away!

You'll need:
2 cups frozen wild blueberries
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup plain Greek-style yogurt (We used Fage 0%)
3 eggs
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese or ricotta (we used ricotta)
Juice of 1 lemon
1 cup flour (we used whole wheat)
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt

How to make it:
-Mix the blueberries, water, and sugar in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently for about 10 minutes of until the blueberries begin to break apart.
-Whisk together the yogurt, cheese, eggs, and lemon juice in a bowl.
-Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in another bowl and add the flour to the yogurt mixture and stir until blended
-Heat a large skillet over medium-low and coat with nonstick spray (we used olive oil). Add batter in large spoonfuls (about 1/4 cup). Flip the pancakes over when the tops begin to bubble (about 3-5 minutes) and cook the second side until browned.
-Serve with warm blueberries!

These are now Devin's favorite pancakes! They were moist and fabulous! Honestly I am a pancake SNOB and I am IN LOVE with these!!!

Love at first sight ;-)
