1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup millet powder
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 Tbsp dried lavender
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 cup 1% milk
2 organic eggs
1 Tbsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp melted butter
1 cup blueberries
Coconut oil cooking spray
In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, millet powder, baking powder, dried lavender, and sea salt. In another mixing bowl, combine the milk, eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, and melted butter. Mix together wet and dry ingredients. Fold in fresh blueberries, saving some for garnish. Heat a griddle or sauté pan over medium heat. Spray with coconut oil cooking spray and pour the batter into 1/4 cup increments, forming small rounds.
Once the edges of pancake begin to bubble, about 2 minutes, flip over and the underside should be a beautiful golden brown. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes and transfer to a plate. Continue with remaining pancake batter. Garnish with fresh blueberries and drizzle with maple syrup.
I hope you love this recipe as much as we do! Bon Appetit!
