Cook with me: healthier blueberry pancakes


Do you love pancakes? Watch the video below for a healthier version of blueberry pancakes and follow along using the directions below!


1. Bisquick Heart Smart Batter (or Kodiak Cakes or whole wheat batter)
2. Vanilla extract
3. Blueberries
4. Coconut oil

Step 1: Wash the blueberries.
Step 2: Pour the desired amount of batter into a bowl. Half a box of batter makes about 8
Step 3: Add water to the batter. Stir until the batter has no lumps. I am not one to measure, if the batter is too thick or doesn’t get to a liquid state, I simply add more water. If the batter is too thin then add some more batter.
Step 4: Add vanilla extract to taste. I add about 2-4 teaspoons.
Step 5: Stir in vanilla.
Step 6: Turn on the stove to about medium heat.
Step 7: Add coconut oil until it is melted completely in the pan.
Step 8: Pour about half a cup of batter into the pan.
Step 9: Sprinkle Blueberries on the batter. (If done this way, every pancake gets the desired amount of blueberries as opposed to stirring them in the batter and the blueberries sinking to the bottom of the bowl.)
Step 10: When there are heat bubbles all over the pancake, flip it. (In the video this is not the case, I flip it early because my sister likes pancakes that are barely fully cooked)
Step 11: Leave pancake for about 30 seconds.
Step 12: Place on a plate. I use a little whipped cream in the video as opposed to syrup because it has less sugar and calories. However, another alternative is sugar-free syrup to keep the dish lighter.
