Blueberry Blintzes

Serves 1

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.


1 egg
4 egg whites
¼ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. agave nectar or Stevia sweetener
2 Tbsp. Greek plain yogurt
2 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
½ 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.
