Blueberry Blintzes

Blueberry Blintzes

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.

Blueberry Blintzes

  • 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.
