Buttermilk Pancakes and Homemade Blueberry Syrup

Buttermilk Pancakes and Homemade Blueberry Syrup is one breakfast treat I love to make my family. 

We love fresh blueberries in my family. I love to bake with fresh blueberries but almost every time I’m planning to do some baking with blueberries I have to hide them. Or put a big warning sign on the container. The kids love to eat them straight out of the container. So when I plan on making a recipe using fresh blueberries I buy the amount I need for the recipe and an extra container for the kids to snack on.

Blueberries are so healthy and packed with so many health benefits that I really don’t mind when the kids get into my stash. I’m actually very happy that they do eat them.

Blueberries make such a great snack. They last longer than other berries, they are a great out of hand snack. Just rinse them off and they are good to go, no added sugar needed.

Blueberries are low in fat and only have 80 calories per cup. Did you know that the blue color of blueberries is why they are packed with those health benefits? The blue of  blueberries contain anthocyanins, which is a phytonutrient.  Anthocyanins have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can play an important role in helping to lessen the inflammatory process associated with chronic conditions like cardiovascular disease, cancer, and age-related cognitive decline.

Blueberries are also high in Vitamin C. Vitamin C promotes a healthy immune system. Blueberries also are a good source of manganese, which plays an important role in bone development. They’re also a good source of dietary fiber, which contributes to heart health, helping to keep cholesterol in check.

I just know they taste good and are one of my favorite fruits to eat and the added health benefits are a bonus. One of my favorite ways to eat blueberries is as a pancake or waffle syrup. I also love them in muffins and fruit salads.

Buttermilk Pancakes with Homemade Blueberry Syrup

Blueberry syrup is so easy to make and so much better homemade that once you make it you will never buy it again. Eating homemade buttermilk pancakes with a drizzle of your own homemade blueberry syrup will make your taste buds dance. You can also use this syrup as an ice cream topping.
