Happy Sunday! How was your weekend? This was the first weekend since the start of July where we had no plans, so I had my hair done and we went to a movie and out for dinner. It was really great! And since it’s Sunday we are brunching! That means i’m also sharing a brunch recipe with you, these blueberry & ginger pancakes.

These blueberry & ginger pancakes are packed with blueberries literally! I pureed blueberries and mixed them right into the batter.

They turned out a purplish grey colour, you could add food colouring if you want them more purple, but I like the natural colour.

They are pretty and tasty!

I served them with a quick blueberry chia jam, it’s so easy to make and goes so well with these pancakes!

Chia jam is so easy and packed with flavour i’m pretty sure I want to make it all the time now! I cooked the blueberries for this one, but i’m confident that you could make it with fresh fruit. And I really want to try it!

I will be working on a recipe and as soon as I have it nailed down I will share it with you.

In the meantime make these blueberry & ginger pancakes so you can see what I mean!

Blueberry Chia Jam

  1. Place the blueberries,  sugar and water in a saucepan, cook over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until the blueberries start to break down. 

  2. Remove it from the heat and allow it cool for 2-3 minutes. Add the vanilla and the chia seeds, let it sit for 5 minutes then stir again to ensure the chia seeds do not clump together. Set aside while you make the pancakes. The jam will keep in a airtight container in the fridge for about a week.
