There. My whole grain cocoa puffs with whole grain banana nut cheerios. With skim milk. I love it. I am a weird person when it comes to everyday breakfast. I go through phases and eat the same thing over and over again for months and months at a time. For the longest time that was maple spice oatmeal. Then it was Kellogg's Special vanilla almond cereal. Now it's this. It goes way back this OCD with my breakfast. Right now I'm in my cocoa puff banana nut phase. But, just to be clear, weekends are usually special. If we go out I will kill myself in omelets or country fried steak. And once a week on Saturday or Sunday, I like to make us breakfast home. Eggs and bacon, corn muffins or pancakes...whatever we are in the mood for. Well, I wanted to do pancakes for a while now so I went on Joy's Blog for some inspiration. She likes her pancakes, I knew I would find something there. Actually, it is impossible to go there and not find something you want to make. Like right now. This instant.
I liked her triple berries pancake recipe. It says every berry except the blueberry/ HA HA. Guess what was the only berry I had home...
So her everything but the blueberry recipe, became my blueberry and white chocolate chip one. I just changed the amounts of oil and sugar from her recipe, and changed the berries and added white chocolate in it.
Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Pancakes
1 cup whole milk
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 stick (8 ounces) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 cup flour
2 tbsp baking powder
4 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup blueberries
1/4 cup white chocolate chips or chunks
Whisk together milk, eggs and vegetable oil in a medium bowl, then whisk in the butter.
Stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in another medium bowl. Whisk in the egg mixture until just combined. Gently fold in the blueberries and white chocolate until just incorporated.

For the sauce
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup maple syrup

Put all the ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil. As simple as that!
Oh man, this totally hit the spot! IHOP, go hide. This was our breakfast, I think we are good till dinner. :o)
