Dried blueberries give these pancakes a rich blueberry flavor and pecans liven up the texture with a bit of crunch.

Nutty and sweet I used dried cranberries instead of blueberries because that's what I had on hand. It was really delicious, not too sweet and the pecans provided a nice crunch. I thought it was pretty dense for a pancake and not light and fluffy like I'm used to. Next time I'll add more milk and egg whites. Pros: Simple to throw together Cons: Pretty dense

This is a great and different breakfast. When you are not in the mood for eggs and your childhood is calling...make this recipe. And the fact that it is healthy just makes the meal. My boyfriend loved it! I will make this again and again.
