Blueberry Pancakes


A great way to start off a Sunday is a nice warm breakfast and fingers crossed that your favorite football team wins.  (Go Ravens!) I started my Sunday off with some mouth-watering blueberry pancakes. 

These pancakes are so easy to make and are exploding with flavor. My husband has never been a fan of blueberry pancakes (he’s more of a chocolate chip pancake kind of guy), so I knew they needed to be extra yummy to sway his taste buds.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

I used 1 packed of stevia in place of sugar. I substituted almond milk for skim milk. Also, I used real maple syrup.

You’ll know they are ready to flip when you see bubbles arising.

These were a hit and received two “thumbs up” from my husband. The pancakes were mouth-watering and the blueberries added a little “pop” of juicy flavor.

Nutrition Tip

1.  The difference between real maple syrup and say pancake syrup is one main ingredient: high fructose corn syrup. When you see this ingredient on the label of anything….step away from that product! It is not good for you. Here is an article that I came across that contains some helpful information regarding HFCS.

When you read labels, be sure to check to see if the ingredients contain high fructose corn syrup. You’ll be amazed at how many products out there use this as an ingredient. It’s sometimes difficult to find bread that doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup. Read those labels to protect your health.

2.  Blueberries are a wonderful source of antioxidants. In fact, they are one of the highest antioxidant containing fruits out there! Here’s a great article that lists the 10 health benefits of blueberries. http://www.womenfitness.net/blueberries.htm

My next mission is a request from one of my readers. It’s one treat that I’m sure we’ll all enjoy! Stay tuned for that posting.

How do you like to start off your Sunday mornings?

  1. Love the website and recipes!!

  2. I like to start my Sunday mornings out with an apple and peanutbutter sandwich but after reading this that may change! YUM!

  3. Those look soooo yummy! Maybe laying in bedat 9:30pm going through catching up on your blogs and being slightly hungier might not be the best idea 🙂

  4. We have frozen blueberries that we brought home from Maine in August! We will have to try them in these pancakes! How is the almond milk? I have heard a few things about it recently; saw that Blue Diamond makes it as well (I saw that at BJs today!).

      Narmeen, thanks for posting!!! Your blueberries will work perfectly! Almond milk is my favorite. It is very creamy, but doesn’t have a very distinct flavor. Be sure to use the plain version for this recipe. The vanilla almond milk is very sweet tasting. I think it has a lot of sugar in it. Let me know how you like the recipe if you make it. 🙂
