Blueberry Pancakes

I’ve been loving celebrating random national food days. The last one I did was earlier this month with the Cream Cheese Alfredo for national spaghetti day – see the post (click here). The holiday I’m celebrating today is national blueberry pancake day which is actually tomorrow (January 28).

This was a super easy breakfast (or any meal – I love pancakes for dinner). I did take a shortcut which makes this even easier and that was using pancake mix! I got this huge bag of Krusteaz pancake mix from Costco and you just need to add water! Couldn’t be simpler.

Today, to make these blueberry pancakes, I just sprinkled some berries on the pancakes while they were cooking. Nothin much to it. If you didn’t want blueberries, another fruity option is to mash up a banana into the batter, so yummy! You could also sprinkle chocolate chips or chopped nuts into the batter/directly on the pancakes as they cook. But of course, since these were for blueberry pancake day, I opted for the blueberries.

I normally like to make my own pancake batter, but this mix is so simple. It’s great if you’re in a rush to get breakfast on the table. Especially with this mix, the pancakes come out so light and fluffy.

Another thing you can do is make a double batch of pancakes and put some in the freezer for a later date. That way, you have pancakes ready and they just need to be thawed and heated! 🙂


  • 1 1/2 cups pancake mix (I like Krusteaz brand)
  • 1 cup water*
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • Nonstick spray
  • Maple syrup, for serving

*Adjust the amount of water for the consistency you like. For thicker batter, use less water. For thinner pancakes, use more water.


  1. In medium bowl, combine pancake mix and water until smooth. Let it set a few minutes.
  2. Heat pan over medium heat and coat with nonstick spray.
  3. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Sprinkle a few blueberries on each one. Let them cook about 1 minute on first side, until there are lots of bubbles.
  4. Flip pancakes and cook another 30 seconds. Serve with maple syrup.
