What Are Blended Blueberry Pancakes?

Simply put, blended blueberry pancakes are pancakes that are made with a blended blueberry batter. If you have picky eaters in your house who don't enjoy eating fruit, these pancakes are perfect because they won't be able to see any individual berries. Plus, the pancakes end up being a fun color—blue!

I first got the idea for this recipe when I was craving blueberry pancakes. However, although I like the flavor of blueberry, I'm not a big fan of the actual fruit. I decided to try using a blender to pulverize the blueberries before adding them to the pancake batter. I thought it was really cool because it turned the batter a beautiful shade of blue—which I was actually not expecting. Now, this recipe has become a regular one in my household.

The pancakes are gorgeous to look at, and they pack an incredible flavor. They're a bit on the sweeter side, a dessert pancake for sure. No pancake house can compete with these. You'll be the talk of the town!

My Kids Love Them, and They're So Easy!

My kids love them! Kevin is a picky eater who hates blueberries, but even HE likes them. I make them all the time for my kids, and I'm a busy, single-parent mom.

I never thought of doing blueberry pancakes. Usually, I have blueberry aside of the stack of pancakes :) By the way, the pancakes look delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
