National Blueberry Pancake Day
Celebrate National Blueberry Pancake Day with a delicious stack of blueberry pancakes! Make your own from scratch or opt for a pre-made mix – either way, nothing beats the warm sweetness of this breakfast favorite. Don’t forget to top it off with your favorite syrup and a few extra blueberries for added sweetness.
Here are some tips for making healthier blueberry pancakes:
- Use whole grain flour instead of all-purpose flour to boost the nutritional value.
- Replace the traditional white sugar with natural, unrefined alternatives like honey or maple syrup. These will add flavor, sweetness and many added nutrients.
- Cut down on fat content by using low-fat dairy products like yogurt or milk in your batter.
- Use fresh or frozen blueberries, as opposed to canned ones to avoid added sugar and preservatives.
- Add healthy fats such as nut butter or ground flaxseed to your pancake batter for an extra dose of nutrition.
- Top with fresh fruit slices, nuts and seeds instead of high calorie syrup or whipped cream.
