Did you know that when cooking and baking with blueberries, it’s better to have them frozen instead of fresh?
When I learned that, I began to freeze fresh blueberries in sandwich bags… until I discovered the wonders of Wyman’s of Maine Wild Blueberries! Yes! My frozen wild blueberries are the ingredient responsible for the beautiful blue color of today’s Blueberry Cottage Cheese Pancakes.
Aren’t they cool?
They are definitely blue, because they are packed with frozen blueberries. And when I say packed, I mean it: one and a half cups of frozen blueberries and only three fourths of a cup of flour.
There is more. The other main ingredient of my pancakes is the delicious Friendship Dairies Cottage Cheese, also one and a half cups of creamy low fat small curds of super fresh cottage cheese.
The result? Very nutritious pancakes, full of protein and fruit, that will keep you satisfied for a good while! They were immediately approved by my family’s official pancake tester: my son Tomás Eugenio (15), who after devouring a tower of blue pancakes, gave them two thumbs up!
