How to make it 17 minutes
Cook pancakes just the way you like them. For light-golden cakes with no crispy edges, turn them just when the tops are covered with bubbles but none have burst, about 2 minutes. For crispier edges, as in this recipe, wait until the bubbles around the edges have just started to burst before turning, about 1 minute longer. Then cook the underside about 2 more minutes until lightly browned.

Blueberries contain antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds found in a wide variety of plant foods, particularly fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants help neutralize destructive forms of oxygen in our bodies called free radicals that can harm cells and are thought to contribute to chronic disease. Free radicals are the result of normal metabolism and are caused by environmental factors, such as ultraviolet radiation from sunlight, cigarette smoke, and other forms of pollution. While there are hundreds of different forms of antioxidants, those most recognized for their ability to fight disease and enhance immunity include vitamins E, C, and beta-carotene, and the mineral selenium.
