black berry-corn meal pancake

Healthy breakfast to start your day…

It’s not black berry season yet I’d bought a lot of black berries the other day and had been making smoothies out of it. This morning, my hubby requested a really good break fast, he did mention that anything other than the black berry smoothie or microwaved eggs would be great for him. Well, myself being a lazy morning cook had to first work hard on overcoming my laziness.

Pancakes it is! I made a gluten free version of pancakes. I had to finish the blackberries, so ended up making blackberry pancakes. This is a very healthy pancake, I added gluten free flour and corn meal, skipped adding eggs as well. The pancake tasted good and my man was seen happy after having a good healthy breakfast.

I assume everyone buys tomato ketchup that comes in squeezable bottles, if so don’t thrash the empty bottles. You can pour the pancake batter into the empty tomato ketchup bottle and just squeeze it onto the pan, isn’t it so easy and a kool idea? I just adore this idea, goodbye to all the mess that’s caused while making pancakes.
