Blueberry-Lemon Whole Wheat Pancakes

I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve!! We had a very exciting evening with some fondue, a glass of champagne at midnight and going to bed at 12:05.  Ahh, the crazy life of parents. 🙂

Blueberry-Lemon Whole Wheat Pancakes

And to start the new year off right we had these pancakes for breakfast the next day. If they are any sign of what is to come in 2013, it is definitely going to be a good year. Arik ended up devouring 3 little monster pancakes all by himself. It was a great start to the day and the year. Happy New Year!!

  1. Ohhh your pancakes look so delicious! I haven’t had them for a while and your pancakes totally made me crave for it. I’ve never added lemon zests in pancakes, and I’m definitely going to try it! Happy New Year!

    • Thanks Nami! Due to the whole wheat flour they taste a little “healthier” than the classic pancake, but I really enjoyed the taste and so did the little one. I hope you get a chance to try them. Happy New Year to you as well!

  2. Love the combo of blueberry and lemon and of course pancakes 🙂
