    11. Step 11. Serve with maple syrup, ice cream, more blueberries and/or yoghurt. A sprinkling of chopped nuts is nice for families with no allergies too!
    12. Variations – omit the blueberries for fruit-phobics. Switch the blueberries for raspberries instead! YUM!

Note – if you have extra time or extra batter, make some mini versions for lunchbox treats or surprise snacks.
