Homemade Blueberry Pancakes
Check out these blueberry pancakes! They are deliciously sweet and don’t require any syrup. Peek at my recipe below and discover how to mix and flip your way to a yummy breakfast the whole family will enjoy.
I know I’ve said this before, but my favorite way to make pancakes is to DOUBLE or TRIPLE the batch. I let them all cool and then I wrap the leftovers individually in parchment paper or waxed paper and pop the pancakes into a freezer bag and put them in the freezer. It makes breakfast quick and fast on busy days. Simply take out what you need, pop them in the toast one pancake at a time. No fuss, no mess for your grab and go, make ahead breakfast plan!

- Cook the blueberry pancakes on a preheated griddle that has been treated with nonstick cooking spray or butter. Cook the pancakes over low to medium heat on one side until it’s toasted and the edges begin to change and the center starts to bubble before flipping to cook the other side and middle of the pancake.
No Syrup Needed: These are delicious alone and do not need syrup. Syrup is optional!
My Favorite Pancake Size? I like to use the medium sized cookie scoop to make pancakes = the perfect size.
Freezing Leftovers: Let the pancakes completely cool. Wrap each pancake individually in parchment paper. Place the wrapped pancakes into a large snap and seal bag. Removing the air, seal the bag and freeze the pancakes.
Heating frozen Pancakes: Do no microwave frozen pancakes they will become soggy. Toast the frozen pancakes & serve. These are great to grab and go!
