Breakfast Back-log

So we’re bringing you a breakfast post two days in a row.  Why? Because we’ve somehow managed to get a major back-log of breakfast recipes piling up, and since we have another bunch of breakfast ideas swirling around in our heads for the next few days (read- there was a big sale on strawberries at the grocery store this week!), we wanted to get some of these recipe to you before we get too carried away with new ones.

What can we say? We love breakfast!

We realized the other day as we were perusing through some past posts that it has been forever since we’ve made a crepe for breakfast!  And with a pile of lemons in our fridge and a giant bag of frozen blueberries in our freezer, we knew what had to be done.

But first, let’s recap: so far we’ve made pancakes, french toast, and a buckwheat bake (ok, that one’s not lemon-blueberry, but it would taste pretty darn good with blueberries, if you ask us!) so a crepe seemed like a logical next step.

And while sometimes logic is kind of overrated, this time, it definitely prevailed!

And while we could launch into a whole spiel about how the tangy, citrus-y flavour of the lemon pairs perfectly with the bright, sweet flavour of the blueberries and the creamy, mellow cottage cheese pulls the whole thing together in a veritable taste sensation, we won’t bother because we’ve already explained the magic that happens when blueberries and lemons are paired together…

So you already know how delicious this is without us really having to tell you 🙂

Prep time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

1 tbsp chia seeds or ground flax seeds
1/2 tbsp poppy seeds
4 egg whites
juice of 1 lemon (1/4 c.)
zest of 1 lemon
1/4 c. milk of choice

Reserved blueberry juice
1/4 c. plain yogurt

Pre heat greased large frying pan or griddle over medium heat.
