Whole Grain Blueberry Pancakes
Makes about 6 pancakes
3/4 cup whole-grain (wheat) flour
1/4 cup oat flour (or substitute the oat flour for regular or whole-grain one)
1 tspn baking powder
1/2 tspn baking soda
1/4 tspn salt
1 cup fresh blueberries (or frozen and thawed)
4 tbsp slivered almonds
1 cup milk
1 large egg – lightly beaten
2 tbsp butter – melted
2 tbsp coconut milk
confectioner’s sugar – for dusting
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter to this.
Stir all the remaining ingredients until they are just combined. Don’t worry if the batter is a bit lumpy, you don’t want to over mix. Finally fold in the blueberries and almonds.
Heat your skillet, pan, or griddle to medium-hot and brush it with a bit of butter. (If a drop of water dropped onto the pan starts to sizzle, the pan is hot enough). Now pour about 1/3 of a cup of batter into the skillet. Wait until the pancake bottom is deep golden in color (about 30 seconds), then flip with a spatula and cook the other side until golden and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve with a dab of butter and maple syrup, or simply dust them with some confectioner’s sugar! These fluffy whole grain blueberry pancakes are simply delicious! In fact, I could say this is my favorite pancake recipe ever!
