Blueberry Banana Blender Pancakes

You wouldn’t know how healthy these pancakes are by looking at them, but they’re just as nutritious as they are enjoyable to eat. The secret? The batter is made from oats, which are great for your heart and digestive health. Plus, the blueberries give it a fun blue color and a lot of health benefits. 


Studies show that blueberries may improve cognitive function in adults. Children may also benefit from their brain-boosting effects, resulting in higher test scores. Blueberries are also a fantastic source of antioxidants, which help prevent cell damage and inflammation. It’s because of this that blueberries can reduce your risk of heart disease and may lower your risk of some cancers, too.


It might be hard to go back to buying pancake mix after trying this crowd-pleasing recipe.
