If you love pancakes and blueberries you are gonna have to give these blueberry lemon pancakes a try. They are so yummy!
Since discovering how to use plantains as a substitute for flour I have been experimenting with a lot of different ways to make pancakes and waffles. And let me tell you, it has been very delicious :). This recipe is slightly sweeter than the other ones and perfect if you are just starting out with eating healthier.

Being able to eat things like pancakes and waffles again has been a real game-changer for me. Just because you are cutting down on refined sugars and processed flours, doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to some of your favorite foods.
