Pancakes.

So wonderfully simple. I love pancakes. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. This simple recipe is super quick to make and creates flawless pancakes every time. (I like to throw them together while the bacon is cooking, which then also gives you some bacon fat to fry your pancakes.)

1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
pinch salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
splash of vanilla

Mix.

I added blueberries and cocoa nibs to this one. Cocoa nibs are one of my favourite discoveries this year. They are essentially the cocoa bean after being crushed lightly, so they come in small pieces. The true core of chocolate but they also have this beautiful savoury, nutty flavour. They are, after all, 100% cocoa, but really not as bitter as you would find a 100% cocoa chocolate bar. You can generally find bags or tins of them in natural foods or specialty markets.

I think my favourite combination is the zest of two lemons and blueberries, so today, I improvised with some of that delightfully rich greek yogurt in lemon flavour.  This afternoon… lemon blueberry muffins!
