Let's Talk About Avocados!

Avocados are one of the most incredible superfoods.

  • They have about 20 vitamins & minerals in every serving, including potassium (which helps control blood pressure), lutein (which is good for your eyes) and folate (which is crucial for cell repair and during pregnancy). (1)
  • Avocados also are a good source of vitamins B, C and E, which helps your body fight off disease and infection, and fiber, which helps you feel full longer. (1)
  • Avocados are a great source of fat— the good fat! Monounsaturated fat, which aids in lowering bad cholesterol. (2)

I literally put avocado on EVERYTHING! It’s perfect as a topping for eggs, salads, chicken, wraps. Of course, it’s amazing as a dip: guacamole or avocado hummus. And it’s a great alternative for mayo; just spread avocado on your sandwich instead!

But, here’s one dish that many people do not think to add avocados: PANCAKES!

Putting Avocados In Pancake Mix

Putting avocados in pancake mix is the best kept secret! Honestly, it’s incredible! It makes the pancakes even more fluffy and loads it up with amazing nutrients. The avocado in the pancakes is hardly detectable; it has absolutely no taste. However, it does make for a creamier pancake batter and sometimes a cool green color (with the more avocado you use).

How to Make Blueberry Avocado Pancake Batter?

Making blueberry avocado pancakes is just as easy as making regular pancakes. The biggest difference is in the avocado, which you have to be sure to use a soft, ripe avocado.

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together into a large bowl.
  2. Add all of the wet ingredients (except the eggs) into the blender. Blend until smooth and then add the mixture to the dry ingredients along with the eggs. 
  3. Stir to combine, and now you have your avocado pancake batter. I like to add the blueberries in when I first pour the batter onto the pan.

 

When to add fruit to your pancake batter?

Some people like to add their fruit to the pancake batter. I find it best to add the fruit directly onto the pancake while it is cooking. Simply pour the batter onto a pan over medium-low heat. Then, add your fruit fillings while the first side is cooking. I’ve found that this is the best way to ensure you don’t have gaping holes in your pancakes or damp fruit that leaves the surrounding pancake batter undone.

Toppings For Your Blueberry Avocado Pancakes

My favorite topping for these pancakes is simply a dollop of cashew yogurt (or Greek yogurt if you do not mind the dairy) and a tablespoon or two of maple syrup… MOUTHWATERING! It’s an incredible combination.

You can also try:

  • Fresh Strawberries and Blueberries
  • Caramelized Apples
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Whipped Cream
  • Almond Butter

I Hope You Enjoy These Blueberry Avocado Pancakes!

I love the idea of adding avocado to pancake batter. I can imagine it add healthy fat and keep the mixture moist.
