Dreena's House of International Pancakes

This is the Canada Day long weekend, and I thought some festive and patriotic pancakes would be spot on!

These Whole-Grain Chia Pancakes are layered with fresh strawberries and topped with my Lemon-Scented Whipped Cream (gotta' show respect to the white too).  Drizzle some pure maple syrup on the side, and you don't get much more Canadian than that, eh?

Now, realizing that my readers south of the border soon have their July 4th celebrations approaching, I did a quick switch up to give you some 'red, white and blue' pancakes too!  Blueberries, enter stage right.

Not only did I have fresh blueberries for these international pancakes, but also a sauce made from wild Newfoundland blueberries (a gift from 'Gram and Poppy's visit).

Don't you want a bite?!...

These Whole-Grain Chia Pancakes and Lemon Whipped Cream are both recipes that will be in the new cookbook, next spring!  So, you can make these for your celebrations next summer!

Kidding. :)

You can get a jump start on my cookbook and find both recipes here.

Happy Canada Day and Happy Independence Day!

Perfect! My girls were asking for blueberry pancakes for breakfast tomorrow and I love the addition of the chia seeds. I love adding extra nutrition whenever I can.

Oh goodness those sound good! I love pancakes so these are a must.

I made the pancakes (sadly, sans lemon whipped cream) this past saturday. They were fantastically light and fluffy. Delicious topped with fresh strawberries and peaches. Thanks for another great recipe, Dreena.

Amanda, that delights me! So glad you tried them out and enjoyed - hurrah! Thanks for letting me know. (and you can always catch the whipped cream for dessert sometime) :D
