I get excited for every first of the month when I get to check in with Recipe ReDux to see the month’s recipe challenge. Each month Recipe ReDux-ers get challenged to create something new in the kitchen based on the monthly theme. I like that it gives me a little boost to think outside of the box.Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes with a Blueberry Sauce via RDelicious KitchenI am all about weekend brunches lately. When I have a weekend day off, I treasure the mornings that I get to sleep in and leisurely make breakfast as I catch up on my shows.

My bf went through a pancake phase and he would make them a couple times a week. He makes his pancakes with chocolate chips, so naturally I had to steal a few bites. He must be the pancake master, because I was hooked.

I think I bought them with the intent to make lemon poppy seed muffins. Instead of muffins, we spruced up our Sunday pancakes, to make lemon poppy seed pancakes. Topped with a blueberry chia sauce, these pancakes will definitely made again in the near future.
