Mason Jar Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes


20150214_064846This is my absolute favourite way to make pancakes!  It is super easy and the cleanup is minimal (I really don’t like doing dishes so I try to use as few as possible).  My pancake recipe is high in protein and complex carbs – perfect fuel to start your day.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

  5. Add in blueberries and stir (skip this step if not using blueberries)
  6. Add a dab of coconut oil to the pan and spread it evenly with a spatula

Tip: Use a wide-mouth canning funnel to make it easy to get everything into the mason jar.  Also really awesome for little helpers who sometimes are a little bit messy!
