Add Fruit to Pancake Batter

Healthy Eating Tip: Load Pancake Batter With Fruit

Homemade pancakes have become a weekend tradition in my family, but I know that if I eat a stack doused in syrup, I end up feeling tired and hungry within an hour. If this sounds familiar, try this the next time you're making pancakes: add tons of fruit to the batter. I don't mean just a few pieces — really load up the batter. Mix in at least three different kinds such as blueberries, raspberries, or cut up cherries, apples, or bananas.

Not only does this add fiber to your breakfast to satiate your hunger longer, but since fruit is so sweet, I don't even need to add syrup. Serve your pancakes with fresh fruit, and this warm Summer breakfast will satisfy your taste buds and give you energy all morning.

My husband does this on the weekends. He makes pancake batter and dumps in two pints of blueberries. The blueberries make the pancakes gooey and sweet as well as healthy. We love it!

In college we used fruit as a topping for waffles instead of syrup. Was really yummy.

When I was a kid, my dad would make us blueberry pancakes on Saturdays and we'd always tell him "More blueberries!" until the batter was basically blueberries held together with a little bit of pancake batter...those were the best pancakes ever. I should make them like that sometime for myself now; they sound so yummy!

My bf just made the best loaded banana blueberry pancakes. I agree with Fit, when make right syrup is unnecessary.
