Healthy Blueberry Pancakes

These blueberry pancakes are made with 50% whole wheat flour and applesauce for some of the butter for a healthier breakfast. I like to make smaller ones and top them with blueberries and powdered sugar. I don’t even need syrup with these because the blueberries already give them so much flavor.

You may be wondering by now if I have fallen of the Earth or something. In my previous post, I mentioned I am now on Spring break, so technically I should be baking up a storm in the kitchen and laying out in the sun when I’m now. One thing has stood in the way: WEDDING PLANNING! If any of you have planned a wedding, you know it is insane how many things need to be done. So far in the last 3 days, I have: found my wedding dress & veil, spent 4 hours looking at flowers for bouquets and arrangements, bought my garter, went to one cake tasting (going to another today and hoping they won’t charge $700 like the one yesterday…!), and figured out favors. Basically, no time for the kitchen. At least the weather in LA has been really cloudy and cold so I don’t feel bad about missing out on any sunny weather.

    Your pancakes look fantastic! I planned my wedding in two weeks. It was a rush wedding, why I don’t know? We got married in Lake Tahoe over Emerald Bay Point. I found my dress and all the accessories in one day and did the rest online. It was perfect!! When are you getting married?
