Blueberry Oat Pancakes

These Blueberry Oat Pancakes are delicious, moist, and fluffy and makes you feel like you’re having cake for breakfast. 


It’s been a while since I posted a pancake recipe.  I’ve been making my Gluten Free Fluffy Pancakes on repeat practically every Sunday for a while now! But I was feeling like it was time for something new.  My original goal was to make a healthy fluffy buttermilk pancake. Of course, without using your typical white flour, white sugar or buttermilk. I wanted a recipe using a healthier flour, that is dairy-free (you get to make your own “buttermilk” which is super simple) and doesn’t include mashed banana in the batter. As not everyone is into bananas, or has ripe bananas lying around.  

   

 

I tested this recipe with three different types of flour. First, brown rice flour – which did not end up being the tastiest without banana. Then, light spelt flour – which was delicious but fell flat and didn’t quite have that fluffy texture. And finally, oat flour – which ended up being the clear winner! The end result is so fluffy and definitely has a “cake-like” texture. Do you know what else makes these Blueberry Oat Pancakes amazing? – Blueberries of course!  They are jam packed with juicy bursting blueberries in every bite.

Sometimes you just need a big stack of pancakes, topped with more blueberries, sliced bananas and smothered in maple syrup.  Feel free to double and triple this recipe if you a want a large stack all to yourself! They also freeze great and can be reheated in the toaster for a quick Monday morning treat.

So, although I didn’t create the perfect healthy buttermilk pancakes that I originally intended, you could say that this is the best recipe flop I’ve ever created. I guess it’s back to the drawing board for Basic Buttermilk Pancakes but I know you’re going to love these in the meantime!

Blueberry Oat Pancakes

These Blueberry Oat Pancakes are delicious, moist, and fluffy and makes you feel like you’re having cake for breakfast.
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 20 mins

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon organic unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon pure liquid honey
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ⅓ cup oat flour use Gluten Free if needed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries*

Toppings

  • Fresh blueberries
  • Sliced bananas
  • Maple syrup
  • Optional: walnuts pecans, sunflower seeds

Instructions:

  • Make the “buttermilk” In a small cup, stir the apple cider vinegar into the soymilk and set aside for about 10 to 15 minutes to curdle and thicken.
  • In a large bowl, add the “buttermilk”, egg, melted butter, honey and vanilla. Whisk until well combined.
  • Using a sifter, sift the oat flour, baking powder, baking soda and a pinch of salt directly into the same bowl. Using a spatula, stir until mostly combined, leaving some lumps in the batter. The trick is to not over stir the batter as it will create flat and tough pancakes that don’t rise as high.
  • Fold in the fresh blueberries and let batter sit for 5 minutes while pan is heating up.
  • Heat a large non stick pan or griddle on medium heat. Butter the pan/griddle and scoop ¼ cup of batter onto the hot pan. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbles begin to form, flip and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden. Repeat until all batter is cooked.
  • To serve, top with fresh blueberries, sliced bananas, and drizzle with pure maple syrup.

Notes

*You can also use frozen blueberries just know that it will turn your batter blue but still delicious!

    This is the first healthy pancake recipe that I have found that gets the thumbs up from my significant other. My previous attempts have resulted in flat lump and tasteless pancakes not worth getting up to make. These are nice and dense but not heavy, super flavourful, delicious and great with sliced bananas and blueberries. I put frozen berries on a plate and let them thaw enough so that the batter didn’t turn blue. A great find! Making you’re own oat flour is a snap and much cheaper as well. I’m looking forward to trying the banana oat ones next.

    • Hi Haley! They sure do. I like to freeze them (single layer) in ziplock bags, and re-heat them in the toaster or in a pan!

  2. I just made this. i didn’t want blue pancakes because my son might not eat it and i only had frozen blueberries. so i made a syrup out of my frozen blueberries by cooking it in low heat and added some honey and reduced the sauce. it was so good. Thanks,Nicole.
    sorry no pics, because I scarfed it down already.
