Some of you may have seen pictures of these beauties on my social media (by the way, if you aren’t following me, you should!) so I thought I would share the recipe to my Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes. I try to make these at the weekend for the family. If you’re short on time in the mornings, you can make the batter in advance, cover and leave in the fridge overnight ready to fry up for breakfast!
I don’t make these pancakes every weekend but I think they’re great for special occasions! Birthdays, Father’s Day, Anniversaries, breakfast for dinner and especially global pandemics, are all great excuses to make these light and fluffy blueberry pancakes. If you’re not a fan of blueberries just swap them out for chocolate chips or check out my Fluffy Bunny Pancakes recipe!
My little girl is not the biggest fan of fruit but she loves these pancakes and they are reasonably healthy. I know, I absolutely cover them in icing sugar but, for my daughter, I just drizzle a bit of honey on the top and they’re just as sweet. There’s so many things you could serve these with. My fiance likes his with maple syrup or served warm with vanilla ice cream (which is my favourite but I don’t usually have the time) . Maybe kids would love these served with whipped cream and sprinkles. The possibilities are endless!
Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes
The perfect healthy-ish pancakes for a fun meal!
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil (plus extra to add as you go along)
- 120 g plain flour (sifted)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp ground almonds
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp lemon zest
- 184 g greek yogurt
- 6 tbsp almond milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 50-75 g blueberries
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground almonds, sugar and lemon zest into a small bowl.
Whisk the yogurt and milk together in a large bowl. Afterwards, add the egg and extract. Whisk until smooth.
Carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk until you have a smooth, thick batter.
Fold in the blueberries carefully and set aside.
Heat a frying pan on a medium heat and add your oil.
Once fully heated, ladle the batter into the pan to make a medium sized pancake.
Once you see bubbles forming on the top, flip the pancake over gently and allow the bottom to turn a golden brown.
Plate up and add your toppings!
These are a bit more work than your usual pancake but I promise you, it’s worth it! If you do recreate these, I would love to see! Follow me on my social medias and feel free to send me your pancake creations!
