Celebrate Accordingly

It feels good to home from Las Vegas! It was a looooong drive,


We made a few stops to keep the twinners happy, they did really well on the drive home. Stopping to let them play twice really helped them I think, AND me to.


All smiles!

It was a great trip but part of me really misses the lake. Now that our summer is wrapped up I’m really getting excited for fall.


Today is National Pancake day!! Thanks to Janetha for reminding me via Facebook! Funny thing. I didn’t find that out until after I had already made and devoured some blueberry pancakes for breakfast!

These Pancakes are thick, fluffy and delicious! 


I didn’t really measure anything out.. I just sort of added some of this and some of that. I wasn’t expecting anything special. But they turned out perfectly! SO please note that these are estimate amounts. I’ll make them again tomorrow to make sureSmile


They were good. Very Good. I could celebrate National Pancake day every day.

And I bet you could to probably right?

{Blueberry Pancakes}


Yields 6-8 pancakes


  • 2/3 C. Whole wheat flour (or gluten free flour)
  • 1/4 C. Old fashioned Oats
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 packets of stevia
  • 2/3 C. Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 Cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)



Mix all dry ingredients together in one bowl

Mix egg and vanilla, and milk together


Heat skillet and spray with a non-stick cooking spray

Fold in Blueberries

Pour onto heated skillet and let cook on each side for about 1 minute till done.

Top with desired topping! I whipped up some blueberry syrup quickly by heating frozen blueberries mixed with 2 tbs of agave nectar!



These were perfect fuel to get through the day! I was glad I was able to celebrate this holiday accordingly!

Q. What is your favorite kind of Pancakes?
