Blueberry maple sauce is absolutely amazing. I first discovered my undying love the stuff drenching a stack of pancakes when we visited Florida in 2008. Blueberry maple was my topping of choice for the whole holiday and it has become a staple part of our diets ever since. It’s a healthy way to start the day as it has loads of fresh blueberries and contains real maple syrup instead large quantities of sugar. The sauce only has four ingredients and when you serve the sauce on top of the brilliant Blueberry Pancakes from Genesis Crafty, it really is a fabulous breakfast. It takes less than 10 minutes to make too so it can be bubbling away as your pancakes are warming up.
The blueberry pancakes from Genesis Crafty are brilliant for this recipe. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really easy to make your own pancakes but when you’re looking for a fast breakfast that will feed many. Cheat! Use shop bought pancakes instead. Genesis Crafty pancakes are full of blueberries and have a wonderfully light and fluffy texture when you bite into them. Just warm them under the grill or in the toaster and then pour over lashings of hot blueberry maple sauce to compliment their amazing flavour.
Blueberries are a great source of vitamins, are very low in calories are crammed with anti-oxidants and they can help improve cognitive functions too so it makes sense to pack as many into your diet as possible. Just remember not to wash the blueberries until you absolutely have to as they spoil really quickly after they have been rinsed. Pure maple syrup is also a brilliant source of calcium & potassium so even though it is high in calories, it’s filled with other good stuff! Blueberries really are a super food and blueberry maple sauce on pancakes is a really good way to start the day. It tastes great and leaves you feeling good.
