Adding plump, juicy blueberries to whole wheat pancake batter makes them healthier (and better!). It's a great way to start your day with a hefty serving of fruit. Drizzle with maple syrup or a dusting of confectioners' sugar.

Ingredients
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cups natural sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoons salt
2 cups low-fat buttermilk
2 large eggs
1/2 cups low-fat margarine, melted
2 packages (6 ounces each) Driscoll's Blueberries, plus more for garnish if desired

Instructions
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl until well combined. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk with eggs. Using a wooden spoon, stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until combined. Add melted margarine and blueberries and stir gently.

Preheat oven to 200°F. Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat. Let a few drops of cold water fall on the surface. If water bounces, sputters and instantly evaporates, griddle is ready. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto the skillet. Cook 2 minutes, or until bubbles that appear on the surface begin to break and the bottom is golden. Flip pancake and cook 1 minute longer or until lightly golden. Place pancakes on a heatproof platter and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining batter. Garnish with additional blueberries if desired.
