Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes with a Blueberry Chia Sauce

I get excited for every first of the month when I get to check in with Recipe ReDux to see the month’s recipe challenge. Each month Recipe ReDux-ers get challenged to create something new in the kitchen based on the monthly theme. I like that it gives me a little boost to think outside of the box. Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes with a Blueberry Sauce via RDelicious Kitchen I am all about weekend brunches lately. When I have a weekend day off, I treasure the mornings that I get to sleep in and leisurely make breakfast as I catch up on my shows.

Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes with a Blueberry Sauce via RDelicious Kitchen I don’t know about you, but making pancakes during the week will never happen. I rely on my overnight oats or smoothie recipes to get me out the door on time. Brunch on the weekend is a treat!

My bf went through a pancake phase and he would make them a couple times a week. He makes his pancakes with chocolate chips, so naturally I had to steal a few bites. He must be the pancake master, because I was hooked.

Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes with a Blueberry Sauce via RDelicious Kitchen This past Sunday morning, was the perfect time to incorporate this month’s Recipe ReDux theme to “spring clean” and go through your pantry, cupboards, freezer, or fridge to see what ‘treasures’ you can find to give it a little extra attention.

I think I bought them with the intent to make lemon poppy seed muffins. Instead of muffins, we spruced up our Sunday pancakes, to make lemon poppy seed pancakes. Topped with a blueberry chia sauce, these pancakes will definitely made again in the near future.
