At the very heart of every good blintz recipe is the perfect egg. Eggs are an inexpensive protein-packed food that’s rich in vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acids, and folate. But don’t worry -- if you’re allergic to eggs you can substitute ground flax seeds in this (or any) baking recipe.
- 1 egg
- 4 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. agave nectar or Stevia sweetener
- 2 Tbsp Greek plain yogurt
- 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds
- 1/2 cup blueberries
In a large bowl, whisk egg, egg whites, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and sweetener for 4-5 minutes until mixture becomes airy and fluffy.
Spray a skillet with cooking spray; add whipped mixture and cook over medium heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes and flip to the other side to ensure even cooking.
When eggs are fully cooked, transfer to serving dishes and top with a dollop of Greek plain yogurt and a sprinkle of ground flax seeds and blueberries in the center.
Fold the eggs over the yogurt and fruit.
