January 24, 2016.

โ˜€ Iย had just finished a 3.5 mi run + 2 mi hike and was thinking about what should I have for breakfast. “Man, I haven’t had pancakes in SO long, but it’s already late morning, so maybe something simpler. Simple but also cakey, fluffy, and fruity… Oatmeal? French toast? Ah fine. I’ll just make pancakes.”

Howย women (or at least how I) make decisions about food. Hahahaha. ๐Ÿ˜‚

๐Ÿ›€ #SelfieSunday. That post-sweat, post-shower squeaky clean feeling. ๐Ÿ‘Œ Except for the blueberry stuck in between my teeth. ๐Ÿ™Š Time for pancakes!! ๐Ÿ˜› #excited #brunch

So pancakes it is. I was pretty excited because I hadn’t eaten pancakes in weeks!

These pancakes smelled amazing asย I was frying them up in the pan, and I couldn’t wait to eat them. And when I finished makingย and plating these, I realize these Blueberry Pancakes would also beย great for Single’s Awareness–I mean, Valentine’s–Day, because the day is on Pancake Sunday this year, and because the entire recipe is single serving, perfect for singles. LOL. BUT also easily doubled, quadrupled, etc. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So… If you’re feeling blue on Valentine’s Day, don’t be. Show yourself some SELF-LOVE. Go for a Sunday Runday, and then make these healthy single-serving Sunday pancakes.

Be extra generous. Pour up that syrup. You deserve that extra Love.ย ๐Ÿ’™

(I’m not a fan of artificial sweeteners, and I normally prefer pure maple syrup, but ever since I found Joseph’s sugar-free maple syrup at Whole Foods, I’ve been using it on my pancakes.

It’s super thick and tastes great. Best part is that it has a quarter less calories than maple syrup.)

Cut into that tall fluffy pancake stack…

Andย savor every moment. ๐Ÿ’™ Seriously each bite into these pancakes was just bursting with sweet juicy blueberries!

I also addedย some walnuts for extra crunch… Walnuts + blueberries = amazing. And healthy fats and omega-3’s.
