Happy Hump Day All!! I am so glad the week is 1/2 over! Be sure to VOTE for me today so I can maintain the the lead you all helped me get yesterday!!
This morning I decided a “fun” and “fruity” breakfast was in order.
Blueberry Protein Pancakes with Fresh Blueberry Syrup
1/2 c ff cottage cheese
1/2 c uncooked oatmeal (quick cooking or old fashioned)
1 egg white
1-2 T ground flax seed
2 T maple flakes (could use agave or sucanat or brown sugar, etc)
Splash of vanilla extract
Dashes of cinnamon & salt
handful of fresh blueberries, 1/2 blended in and 1/2 stirred in
Toppings: Fresh Blueberry Syrup (recipe below), fresh fruit, Greek Yogurt
Blend everything together until smooth and creamy. I use my Magic Bullet and it only takes seconds. Cook on a skillet over medium heat (use ns cooking spray or 1 tsp oil) on both sides until browned (about 5 minutes total).
Serve up with your favorite toppings or pure maple syrup, fruit, almond butter, etc. The options are endless.

I made up 4 pancakes that included a few blueberries blended in to make them BLUE and a few blueberries stirred in for chunky blueberriness throughout.
While I mixed up and cooked my pancakes, I cooked the Fresh Blueberry Syrup.
Fresh Blueberry Syrup
1 c fresh blueberries
1/2 c water
1 Tbsp PURE Maple Syrup
Combine the blueberries and water in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until majority of the water is reduced. Remove from heat and stir in the maple syrup.
Makes about 1/2 cup of Fresh Blueberry Syrup, 8 Tbsp, 2 Tbsp per serving
