  • 1 1/4 cups flour (gluten-free all all-purpose blend)
  • 2 tbsp. sugar (organic cane)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder (gluten-free)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil (light, or your favorite neutral vegetable oil)
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk (or your favorite dairy-free substitute)
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh, if using frozen blueberries, thaw first)
  • For frying: vegetable oil (for pancakes)

Steps to Make It

Measure dry ingredients together in a bowl. Whisk to combine.

In a separate bowl, beat egg until thick and foamy. Add oil and buttermilk to egg and whisk to blend.

Add dry ingredients and whisk until the pancake batter is smooth. Gently stir in blueberries.

On medium-high, heat 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil in a heavy skillet. Spoon about 1/3 cup of pancake batter into hot skillet and smooth the pancake. Dot the top of the pancake with 1/4 cup fresh blueberries. Cook until golden brown on the bottom and carefully flip. Cook second side until golden brown.

Serve warm with maple syrup or make double blueberry pancakes by serving with homemade blueberry syrup.
