Blueberry pancakes

Tell me, is there anything better than starting your day with a stack of homemade blueberry pancakes? After eating them almost every morning this week (I made a big batch last weekend and froze the extras!!), I’d have to say no.

These blueberry pancakes are soft, fluffy, and bursting with juicy berries. They’re easy to make with pantry ingredients, and, if you don’t dwell too much on the big pour of syrup you’re putting on top, they’re fairly good for you, too. I hope you love them as much as we do!

Blueberry Pancake Recipe Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this blueberry pancake recipe:

  • Blueberries, of course! Fresh and thawed frozen blueberries both work great.
  • All-purpose flour – It makes up the base of the batter.
  • Baking powder, baking soda, and an egg – They help the pancakes rise.
  • Cinnamon – It adds warm, spiced flavor.
  • Cane sugar – It makes the batter lightly sweet. I only use a little because I know I’ll be topping the pancakes with maple syrup.
  • Almond milk – Or any milk you keep on hand. Oat, soy, or cow’s milk would work here too.
  • Greek yogurt – It gives the pancakes extra lift and a slightly tangy flavor.
  • Avocado oil – Or whatever neutral oil you like.
  • Vanilla extract – For warm depth of flavor.
  • And sea salt – To make all the flavors pop!

How to Make Blueberry Pancakes

These blueberry pancakes are super simple to make! Here’s what you need to do:

First, prepare the batter. Mix together the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry ingredients in another.

…and fold until just combined.

If you like, you can fold in the blueberries now too, but I prefer to add them during the cooking process for more even dispersal.

Then, cook the pancakes. Brush a griddle or non-stick skillet with oil or melted butter, and heat it over medium-low heat.

Use a 1/3-cup scoop to portion the pancake batter into the pan. Immediately after you pour the batter, dot each pancake evenly with blueberries. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until bubbles form on the first side. Flip, and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.

That’s it!

Blueberry Pancakes Serving Suggestions

Depending on the size of your skillet or griddle, you’ll likely need to cook these blueberry pancakes in batches. Loosely cover any earlier batches with foil and warm them in a 200°F oven until you finishing cooking the pancakes. That way, they’ll all be hot when you’re ready to eat.

Serve these blueberry pancakes with butter or yogurt, maple syrup, and extra fresh blueberries on the side. They’re also fantastic with blueberry compote or jam and/or a big slather of my easy homemade honey butter.

If you’re in the mood for a larger breakfast or brunch, pair these light and fluffy pancakes with something savory. A frittata, breakfast casserole, or simple scrambled eggs would all be great choices. Enjoy!

    If I want to make these gluten free, what flour do u recommend? Would almond flour work?

    I just made these blueberry pancakes for Easter Brunch and everybody in my fam was completely obsessed! Even my mom, who’s not that into American-style pancakes, was blown away and insisted that I let you know how much she loved them! The only change I made was coconut instead of avocado oil. Served these beauties with maple syrup and blueberry vanilla compote. This will be my go-to pancake recipe for family & friends! Thank you, for the fab recipe, Jeanine!

    A delicious Saturday morning breakfast of blueberry pancakes is our regular start to the weekend. My recipe is similar to yours except for the addition of rye sourdough starter discard and and a reduction in flour and milk to compensate.
