Healthy Oatmeal Blueberry Pancake Ingredients
Oats. These pancakes are flourless and instead of flour, we’re using oats. You can go for quick or regular oats, or even use ground oats.
Yogurt. We need some yogurt in the recipe to make the pancakes lighter and fluffier. The yogurt reacts with the baking soda and makes the tiny bubbles that give the pancakes their fluffiness (explained like a true chemist). You can use any type of probiotic yogurt, dairy-free varieties made with coconut or cashews will probably work as well.
Baking soda and baking powder. I find using both somehow makes the pancakes even better.
Egg. The egg is necessary because it’s the binding agent in this pancake recipe.
Vanilla. Some vanilla or if you desire cinnamon for the aroma.
Blueberries. I’d only use fresh blueberries in this recipe, since frozen might make the batter runny and will change the color of the pancakes.
Maple syrup or honey. Add in a little bit of sweetness to the pancakes, you can always top them with more!
How To Make Healthy Oatmeal Blueberry Pancakes
All you need to make the batter for the pancakes is add all ingredients except for the bluberries to a blender or to a bowl and blend until smooth either in your high-speed blender or hand blender. If using ground oats, you will not need a blender.
Melt in a little bit of coconut oil. Pour in the pancake batter, making smaller sized pancakes. Add blueberries on the uncooked side. Let the pancakes cook until edges look done and bubbles come up.
Then work your way around the edges and flip the pancakes on the other side as well.
Serve immediately and top with some extra blueberries and maple syrup.
I hope you enjoy this simple healthy blueberry pancake recipe!
