Blueberry Honey Pancakes

Blueberry honey pancakes are a delicious breakfast serve.  I personally love to eat these with out maple syrup.  Instead, I like to drizzle just a little bit of natural honey on top to bring out the honey flavor in the batter and then I like to add more fresh blueberries on top.  You don’t need much…just a teeny, tasty drizzle.

Oh so yum!

These pancakes do taste great with maple syrup too, I just prefer the honey with this combination.  I’ve shared two other pancake topper ideas below for your own taste testing experimentation.

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg, large
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Instructions

    1. Prepare the blueberries by washing them and letting them dry.
    2. Using an electric mixer, mix the egg, Flour, milk, honey, vegetable oil, baking powder, salt and vanilla extract together. 
    3. Fold in the fresh blueberries. 
    4. Heat a griddle melting a teaspoon of butter or use the non-stick cooking spray. 
    5. Pour enough batter to create a four 5inch pancakes.  Cook until the pancakes are slightly puffed, the edges appear cooked and the center is bubbling before flipping to cook the other side.  Continue the process until the pancakes are fully cooked.

Serve with a Yogurt Glaze:  Stir 6 oz. of low fat vanilla yogurt together with 1 tablespoon of milk and 1 tablespoon of honey.  You can add additional milk as needed to create the consistency desired.

Fresh Fruit on Top:  Simply take fresh frozen, no sugar added blueberries.  Let them thaw and serve on top of the pancakes.

My Favorite Pancake Size? I like to use the medium sized cookie scoop to make pancakes = the perfect size.

Freezing Leftovers:  Let the pancakes completely cool.  Wrap each pancake individually in parchment paper.  Place the wrapped pancakes into a large snap and seal bag.  Removing the air, seal the bag and freeze the pancakes.

Heating frozen Pancakes:  Do no microwave frozen pancakes they will become soggy.  Toast the frozen pancakes & serve.  These are great to grab and go!
