The Sunday Morning Blueberry Pancakes

These pancakes are great on a sunday morning, becouse they have no sugar added to the dough and are full of fiber. I use whole wheat flour instead of plain white flour to ensure I get as much good carbs as possible. These are not your regular thin pancakes, they are wondrfully thick and fluffy ......and really fill you up before you know it. Becouse of the high fiber and protein content you don´t eat as much as you would regular pancakes. You can decide your self what you serve them with, I think a little icing sugar and cinnamon goes a long way and to top it of a bit of blueberry butter really hits the spot.

Serves 8

8dl milk
3dl oatmeal
2dl flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
150g frozen blueberries

Add the dry ingredients in a bowl and blend together.

Add the wet ingredients to the bowl and whisk together. Add the frozen blueberries and stir into the dough, do NOT over mix because the dough will turn blue. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Pour 1dl of the dough on a hot non-stick pan and bake on each side. You can use a little butter on the pan if you need to.

Serve with some icing sugar, cinnamon and blueberry butter.

For The Blueberry Butter:
200g unsalted butter
150g blueberries
2 tbsp icing sugar

Pulse the blueberries and butter in a food processor, adding the icing sugar 1 tbsp at a time until combined. Spoon onto a sheet of clingfilm and roll into a sausage. Twist the ends to enclose and freeze until you need to use it.

Great idea - tea infusers for shaking ground spices and sugar over cooking - thank you
