  • zest of 2 oranges
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, spices, salt, and sugar in a bowl.
  • Add orange zest, yogurt, juice, egg, and butter and stir to combine. (Batter may be lumpy.)
  • Heat skillet over medium heat and add a small dollop of butter (about a teaspoon.) When butter bubbles, pour about 1/3 cup of batter into the skillet for each pancake. Sprinkle about 8-10 blueberries over each pancake.
