Cooking Light Challenge Breakfast #2 Blueberry Pancakes

We love pancakes in our house. My husband and I love blueberry but the kids prefer plain. The nice thing about this recipe is you can just skip the blueberries since you don't add them to the batter. The article about the pancakes mention using chocolate chips or bananas too so don't think you have to just use blueberries. These do reheat well so if you make extra you could freeze them then have an easy breakfast through out the week. The batter was thicker than most pancake mixes but the pancakes were still very tender. This is not a sweet pancake but surprisingly the kids really loved them.
