Homemade Blueberry Pancakes

Check out these blueberry pancakes! They are deliciously sweet and don’t require any syrup. Peek at my recipe below and discover how to mix and flip your way to a yummy breakfast the whole family will enjoy.

I know I’ve said this before, but my favorite way to make pancakes is to DOUBLE or TRIPLE the batch.  I let them all cool and then I wrap the leftovers individually in parchment paper or waxed paper and pop the pancakes into a freezer bag and put them in the freezer.  It makes breakfast quick and fast on busy days.  Simply take out what you need, pop them in the toast one pancake at a time.  No fuss, no mess for your grab and go, make ahead breakfast plan!

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 4 oz. cinnamon applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose, unbleached flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh
  • Nonstick cooking spray or butter

Instructions

    1. Rinse the blueberries and let dry.
    2. Beat the egg in a bowl with a whisk until fluffy.
    3. Using a whisk, stir together the whipped egg, milk, brown sugar, applesauce and vanilla extract.
    4. Stir the flour baking powder and salt together.
    5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Whisk everything together until the batter is smooth.
    6. Fold in the blueberries.
    7. Cook the blueberry pancakes on a preheated griddle that has been treated with nonstick cooking spray or butter. Cook the pancakes over low to medium heat on one side until it’s toasted and the edges begin to change and the center starts to bubble before flipping to cook the other side and middle of the pancake.

No Syrup Needed: These are delicious alone and do not need syrup. Syrup is optional!

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!

  1. Sounds delish, Jodie. But I’d leave out the brown sugar. I don’t like sweet (I know, I know, but hey, I don’t like chocolate either! Or shopping!). I can see myself grabbing one of these on my way out the door and eating it on the go–no muss no fuss.

    1. Go for it!! And, I wish I had your tastebuds and didn’t like chocolate either – haha (the struggle is real)!

  6. Although I’ve used a number of cameras over the years and have become lazy about using them in recent times, I thought the Olympus workshop on Photography: Get Off Auto would be a nice refresher course. However I think Aaron Harivel from Olympus has instead cemented the fact that my cameras are seriously outdated. I still have (and use) my Canon 350D, which is 13 years old! There are so many new features in today’s models. Maybe it’s time to upgrade the gear.
