Warm pancakes with juicy also warm berry sauce on top, an energetic and delicious breakfast.

Used 12-grain flour instead of quinoa flour that I didn't have on hand, the pancakes came out great. Used blueberries for the berry sauce, super juicy and fruity. Omitted the yogurt, had a cup of orange juice. YUM!
