Warm Berry Compote

Father’s Day just passed and my husband had a special request for breakfast in bed, blueberry pancakes with warm berry syrup.  Nothing takes pancakes to another level than fresh fruit compote.  I used my easy Pancakes recipe and added fresh blueberries in the batter, then topped it off with this easy recipe of 3 ingredients.

Oh yeah, remember my watermelon slushy where you freeze leftover watermelon for slushies?  Well, you can do that with your berries.  Maybe you went a little crazy strawberry picking or the market had a sale.  Just freeze the extra, like I did, to make this compote.

This is great on pancakes. Cool it and use it to top your plain yogurt the next morning or spread it on toast.

Recipe Notes

You can mix your berries or keep it as one.  Blueberries are perfect for this recipe.  You can also try peaches, apples, plums.  The cooking time may be a little longer with the harder fruits.

This compote goes great with my Wait, The Pancakes Are Done? recipe.

I finally bit the bullet one day and bought one of those fancy super-powered blenders.  I made my healthy smoothies and then asked myself, “What else can I do?”  I saw a generic pancake recipe in the booklet that came in the box and decided to make my own version that is super healthy and can be gluten-free. They are so easy and quick to make that my kids couldn’t believe pancakes can come out so fast to the table

They will love you even more if you can shape it like a bunny!

These are so good plain that maple syrup is not even necessary but if you must, I suggest grade B syrup as it is filled with more nutrients. I sometimes like to add my homemade blueberry compote, the link is below.

Instructions
  1. Throw all the ingredients into your fancy super blender until everything is smooth.
  2. Pour straight from you blender onto a skillet no bigger than 4-5 inches diameter. Flip when you see it bubble on the edges
  3. Mind you, this picture is the 3rd round because for some reason, your first round on the skillet never looks so pretty.
  4. Top with 100% pure maple syrup. I like Grade B as it has a lot nutritious minerals in it.
Recipe Notes

Here's the recipe to my Berry Compote that go great with these pancakes.

*Don't have GF flour? You can forgo the flour and replace it with another cup of oatmeal (GF)

**Egg-free?  You can replace eggs with 1/2 cup of flaxseeds

***You can use any fruit! In the fall, I use 1 cup of pumpkin puree, in the summer I use a pitted peach or a whole apple (cut the seeds out first).

Griddle the whole batch and freeze the leftovers.  They reheat quickly in the toaster oven.

They are also great pancakes to go in the car as they are sweet without syrup. Great for morning rushes to school
