Blueberry Pancakes with Blueberry Topping


These pancakes are thick and filling with bursts of blueberry in them and the subtle hint of banana. Top with a delicious blueberry topping for an extra treat.

The Recipe: Blueberry Pancakes

Makes 10-12 4-inch pancakes

2 CUPS flour (feel free to use gluten-free flour if you like)

2 TSPS baking powder

pinch of salt

1 CUP frozen blueberries

1 1/2 CUPS nondairy milk

1 banana, mashed (or 1/2 cup applesauce, if you don’t like banana flavor)

1 TSP vanilla extract

In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Toss the frozen blueberries into the dry ingredients and mix together. In a separate bowl, mash bananas and add milk and vanilla. Stir wet ingredients into dry gently and add more milk as necessary. The consistency should be a thick batter. Do not overmix (some small lumps are fine). Heat a frying pan or griddle to a low-medium heat. If you’re using a nonstick pan, you can probably get away with not using oil to cook the pancakes. For a regular pan, add a splash of oil (vegetable, safflower, or coconut). When the pan is heated, use a measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the pan. You can make any size pancakes you want. The trick to cooking pancakes is getting the heat right. Too high a heat and the pancakes cook too fast on the outside, leaving the inside gooey. Too low a heat and the pancakes don’t get a nice crisp and can still be raw in the middle. On a low-medium heat, cook the pancakes on the first side until they bubble and you see little holes appear. Flip the pancakes carefully and cook on the other side until nicely golden brown. Serve with some blueberry topping spooned over the top. Enjoy!

Blueberry Topping

Makes 2 generous helpings

1 1/2 CUPS frozen blueberries

1 TBLS cornstarch

2 TSP sugar

1/4 CUP (or more) water

In a small saucepan, heat the blueberries, sugar and water, stirring frequently. When the mixture is hot and the blueberries are hot, add the cornstarch and stir well to combine. The mixture should thicken. If it is quite thick, add a little extra water, one tablespoon at a time and stir to combine. When you have reached your desired thin/thickness, turn off the heat and serve over pancakes.

  1. These look amazing! My sister-in-law is gluten-free. Is it possible to make these with gluten-free flour? Do I need to make any other alterations to the recipe if I substitute in gluten-free flour?

    1. Hi Bruce, Thanks for your questions. Yes, you can certainly use gluten-free flour. Just replace the regular flour with gluten-free. Everything else should remain the same, though you might end up needing a little extra non-dairy milk. I find that when I use gluten-free flour, I sometimes need extra liquid. You’re going for a thick batter-like consistency, so just add extra milk as needed to achieve that consistency. These will probably be a bit more dense with GF, but they should be quite tasty. 🙂

  2. Wow! I just found your blog through Foodgawker and I’m so glad I did. I recently became vegan and it’s so great to have a new blog to follow. Your photos are gorgeous! I just want to eat these pancakes right off the screen.

      1. Welcome, Brittany and Samantha! So glad you found the blog and thanks so much for the kind words.

    1. Thanks, Karen! I really like the banana flavor in them (banana pancakes are my all-time favorite). Hope you like them!
