If you have noticed blueberries at a good price lately, it is probably because July is National Blueberry Month! LIndsey put together this great round-up of some of our favorite blueberries a couple of years ago. We thought it would be nice to repost it again while the blueberries are priced so well. While we are at it, we are adding another recipe that we have added to our repertoire! Enjoy!
Last week I went to the store and blueberries were on sale! I bought four cartons. I made a coffee cake, but it was eaten so quickly that I did not get any pictures of it. Sorry! I started thinking however, we've made many blueberry recipes here at 3 Winks, it would be handy to have one place to round them all up!
Now, I love blueberries. When I was in law school I spent my first summer in Washington doing an internship. I stayed with my friend Jackie and we had a blast, and one thing we did was go blueberry picking. That was when I learned that there are four types of blueberries! It was August when we went picking, that is actually blueberry season. So, now is a perfect time to finish off your summer with some great blueberry foods before I am unleashed to share every pumpkin recipe under the sun with you!
You can always eat blueberries straight from the bucket (wash them first!) I won't lie, I did this with two of the cartons I bought. They're so sweet and delicious and filled with antioxidants for myself and my little nugget. However, there are a lot of other options and I feel like breakfast time is a great time for blueberries. So here are six different recipes, three from our own dear blog, and three that I have found through the magic of Pinterest, to help you use up those blueberries!
1.Lemon pancakes with Blueberry Syrup
Lemon and blueberries go so well together. Blueberries are sweet and and the lemon just brightens up any dish they're in. In this post my mom shared with you how to make the perfect blueberry syrup to top these delicious pancakes. They make for a great start to your morning!
2. Blueberry Muffins
These are classic. When I think muffins, blueberries are the first to come to mind! In this post my mom shared with you how to make her delicious blueberry muffins. They're another perfect breakfast meal, but they're good at any time of day!
3. Blueberry Coffee Cake
I found this recipe at Barbara Bakes and tweaked it a little for the coffee cake I made this weekend. I didn't have any lemon to zest, but I added a teaspoon of lemon juice to the crumble on top. That combined with the lemon glaze was the perfect combination!
4. Blueberry Pancakes
Blueberry pancakes are another classic breakfast combo. I believe the first time anyone added anything to a pancake it was a blueberry. Since we already gave you one recipe involving pancakes I decided to find a vegan one for all of our vegan friends. I found this one courtesy of Connoisseurus. So my dear vegans, you can get in on the blueberry action too!
5. Overnight Blueberry Oats
One of my favorite ways to enjoy blueberries is to top them on my oatmeal. With a little honey? It's absolutely perfect! So I love this recipe from Fit Foodie for these tasty overnight oats! Overnight oats are all the rage. They make breakfast on the go so easy, and HEALTHY! Who doesn't love that? So try this tasty treat out!
6. Blueberry Dump Cake in the Crock Pot
This last recipe doesn't fit into the breakfast category really. Although, if you ate it for breakfast I would never judge you. My mom gave this recipe and tutorial back in January, and it is another fun and easy treat! I personally am a huge fan of anything I can make in a crock pot. I mean honestly, does it ever turn out bad? No way! Plus you can enjoy it with whipped cream (or ice cream!) on top!
So that is it, six tasty ways to use those blueberries you have on hand. I've provided a handy cheat sheet for you with links to every recipe. Enjoy!
Now, here is the new addition to this round-up in honor or National Blueberry Month!
7. Brown Butter Blueberry Tart! So delicious and so beautiful! This is a real show stopper recipe! This post telling how to make this tart was actually showcased on April J. Harris' site! You will love it!
