I have to include this recipe on the blog because it is one of my second daughter’s favorites.  Lemon, blueberries, and pancakes…what else do you need in the morning?  Part of the reason I started this blog was so my kids would have an archive of some of our favorite eats and experiences.  This is a popular breakfast for us aside from the classic filipino breakfast (which now that I think about it, I should blog about as well).  I especially like it because it has flaxseed in it, which has always had a positive effect on my daughter’s eczema issues.  She especially loves it because it is loaded with tangy bluberries!  Yummy!

I’m not a chef, I’m a cook.  So I basically use my favorite pancake mix or Bisquick…whichever I have in stock in the pantry (above is my toddler son mixing it up…so fun for kids!).  I suggest you use your favorite pancake recipe as well!  Note, that depending on your recipe, the lemon juice may affect the thinness of your batter.  So adjust accordingly.

It’s as simple as making your favorite pancake batter, dumping in the bluberries, flaxseed, and lemon juice…quick and easy is how I like it…and NEED it!!!

My kids also prefer to eat their pancakes without syrup.  Basic butter on top, “naked” or sometimes a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar…cinnamon sugar is a staple in my house!

The bigger the blueberries the better!  If the pancake is hot off of the griddle, when you eat the pancakes you’ll get a burst of blueberry juice when you take each delicious bite!
