Fresh Starts: Blueberry-Cornmeal Griddle Cakes

Blueberry Cornmeal Griddle CakesA banana-berry or avocado-pear smoothie make sense for those on-the-go weekdays, but if you're looking to get your Saturday or Sunday off to a healthy start, try making your own pancakes at home.

There's something about the rustic cornmeal texture and the spicy-sweet chili honey that keeps me intrigued. Want to re-create a spa breakfast in your home? Read on.

Made these for brunch, they were so delicious. I subbed unsweetened almond milk. I didn't notice any grittiness, maybe my cornmeal was a finer grind. I'd definitely make them again.

Made these tonight! I liked them, they were a bit too cornmeal-y to me, I'll balance the flour/cornmeal ratio next time.
