Blueberry pancakes

Pancakes are my favorite breakfast recipe.  However the added syrup that normally comes on pancakes is full of sugar and calories. 1/4 of syrup typically has about 200 calories.  Plus adding a tablespoon of butter adds an additional 100 calories.  So having a short stack of 2-3 pancakes ends up being an easy 600-800 calories.  Not necessarily the best way to start your day.  You can cut the calories by substituting the syrup with something lower in calories, such as blueberries.  These blueberry pancakes have become one of my favorite breakfast treats.  It is easy to make and much healthier.

Blueberry Pancakes
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup flour
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cup milk
3 tbsp canola oil
½ cup frozen blueberries
½ cup fresh blueberries

Mix dry ingredients in bowl.
Add milk and oil. 
Pour batter in griddle.  Add frozen blueberries.  Cook each side for 2-3 min.
Serve with fresh blueberries.
