Blueberries and Chia Seed Fluffy Pancakes

My daughter has an obsession with blueberries lately. She wants to eat them everyday, all day long! That´s why I came up with this recipe. You can substitute the blueberries for strawberries, raspberries or any berries that may be more appealing to you.

It is free of refined sugar. The sweetness comes from the blueberries, bananas and dates. It´s super filling and is packed with goodness so you can indulge without regretting later on.
