It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means? I’m sure you all thought I was going to say it’s hump day right? WRONG, the second part of our pancake recipe is here! I think it’s safe to say we’ve kept you waiting long enough, and we are excited to complete this two part post. If some of you missed our Monday post, we shared a recipe for old fashioned pancakes . Today we discuss topping it with blueberry applesauce.
It’s shocking how I never knew about this before, but pancakes and applesauce go together like bread butter. Without the butter, bread is just…well bread. Not bad by any means, but nothing special. If you have never tried this unique combination, I hope it blows your mind like it did mine. We decided to split these two recipes up because both are great individually made better when put together. So if applesauce on top of your pancakes isn’t your thing, don’t go anywhere just yet.
This healthy snack is a great recipe to add to your collection for many reasons. It’s a pretty well known fact how easy it is to make regular applesauce, and the addition of the blueberries is no different. The only difference is the dramatic change in color. You still get the same great taste of traditional applesauce with just a hint of blueberry. And a little antioxidant never hurt anyone. When I was a child, my mom always made a batch of applesauce when anyone in our household had the stomach flu. It was such a god send because it was the only thing we could all stomach (pun intended). Another known fact about applesauce, family members of all ages can enjoy this sweet treat. It’s an ideal way to get your toddler to eat fruit as it is filled with fiber, and rich in vitamin C. It’s also a great way to introduce other kinds of new flavors and textures to small children by mixing it with other kid friendly foods, blueberries being one of them. Some other great foods to mix with applesauce for your young ones are sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, pear, banana, and oatmeal just to name of few, but the options are endless. As adults, some of those combinations sound pretty good right?!
Not only is this recipe versatile, we have to mention how yummy it is too! A total winner in our book, we hope you enjoy and happy eating!
