It’s a real shame that some of the tastiest things in life require a hand mixer or food processor. Bacon chocolate chip cookies, cakes, pancakes, homemade hummus, banana bread cupcakes with peanut butter frosting, the list goes on and on. Pancakes in particular are one of my all-time favorite late-night snacks, but since I wasn’t able to sneak my mom’s hand mixer out of the house before I left for school, I figured regular ol’ Oreos would be my late-night destiny. Then I learned that JCPenney’s cooks 12-pc. 5-in-1 Rocket Power Blender can whip together everything I need. My beloved pancakes included.

Thanks to this everything-in-one blender, this isn’t just any old pancake recipe, we’re making blueberry pancakes that, with the blender, transform into full-on purple pancakes. This recipe can be really simple by replacing the first four ingredients with packaged pancake mix, or if you feel like expressing your culinary expertise, follow the recipe as is. Either way, you won’t be disappointed in the simplicity of throwing a bunch of ingredients into a blender and flipping out purple pancake after purple pancake to satisfy your fruit and pancake craving.

PRO TIP: Add Sprite to your batter just before pouring it onto the pan to make extra fluffy pancakes!
