Multi-Grain Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup
There’s no better start to a cold winter’s day than a hearty pancake breakfast!
Make ‘em with multi whole-grains, top ‘em with organic blackberry syrup, and you’ve got a tasty, and healthy morning recharger to relish.
Blackberries feature an earthy, wine-like flavor, which is why they’re called the “cabernet” of berries.
Blackberries rank even higher than blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries on the antioxidant-capacity scale.
And this sweet, dark-purple fruit offers an abundance of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid (a B vitamin), and manganese.
This blackberry syrup recipe includes a little orange zest, and an optional splash of orange syrup or liqueur.
