My sister taught me a trick with pancakes I wish to share. If you use a mix or even homemade you can incorporate this into your pancakes. Instead of using all the water and or oil replace it with 1/2 to 3/4th of the liquid called for with unsweetened applesauce.
I also make mine with frozen blueberries usually but you can use any fresh or frozen berry. After I pour the pancake mix onto my griddle I add the berries on top and cook normally turning only once. Today is the first time I used the applesauce at home, the flavor with the berries was awesome.
Special note for diabetics blueberries and bilberries are the highest antioxident berries you can use. This will help in keeping your blood sugar levels down a bit while indulging in a food that we should not eat. Eating a little protein like 2 strips of bacon or a couple link sausages also will help you to digest the carbs slower also aiding in your sugars not spiking as badly.
