Despite the popularity of Jack Johnson’s classic song “Banana Pancakes”, blueberry pancakes should get some recognition too. Blueberries are a delicious way to shake up your everyday breakfast routine. It is the height of blueberry season in the southern hemisphere, where they are shipped to the rest of the world. So, add some to your basic pancake mix to celebrate this holiday.
Blueberries are considered a superfood because of their antioxidant levels. According to Medical News Today, “blueberries can help heart health, bone strength, skin health, blood pressure, diabetes management, cancer prevention, and mental health”. Whether those health benefits are negated by eating pancakes regularly? Well, that’s up for debate. But if you’re already eating the pancakes, adding some fruit can’t hurt.
