Blueberry pancakes are probably hands down my favorite breakfast food of all time. I love the combination of the sometimes-sweet-sometimes-tart blueberries with the light fluffy texture of pancakes. I think I could eat pancakes for every meal, every day for the rest of my life (as long as I could still have my spoonfuls of peanut butter at least five days a week). In honor of National Blueberry Pancake Day, we’re serving up ten delicious recipes for ten creative ways to enjoy blueberry pancakes. You’d be surprised at how many different ways there are to make blueberry pancakes. Check out some of our favorite Blueberry Pancake recipes:
Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes (via The Redhead Baker)
Made with whole wheat flour and frozen blueberries, these pancakes are perfect for a wholesome breakfast your friends and family will love. For an extra fiber boost you can add flax seed or chis seed sprinkled on top, or add a little vanilla protein powder to the batter for an extra kick of protein.
Gluten-Free Blueberry Pancakes (via Fit Sugar)
These perfect pancakes are made with almond flour, flaxseed, almond milk, and eggs to create light, fluffy, gluten-free pancakes everyone can enjoy. Put some blueberries in the batter and top off the pancakes with some more blueberries and a drizzle of syrup if that’s what you’re into.
Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes (via Martha Stewart)
This recipe uses cornmeal to create a healthier, ultra-fluffy blueberry pancake perfect for Sunday brunch or breakfast in bed. Instead of using all buttermilk, Martha Stewart uses half buttermilk and half regular milk to cut down on fat in this delightful (semi guilt free) breakfast.
Cottage Cheese Pancakes with Blueberry Compote (via Woman’s Day)
Blueberry compote is delicious and refreshing all year round. Perfect with muffins, scones, pancakes, or on a spoon, this blueberry compote is easy to make and pairs well with these cottage cheese pancakes. This recipe uses cottage cheese, egg whites, and blueberries to make a protein-packed wholesome breakfast that will keep you satisfied all morning.
Blueberry Chocolate Chip Quinoa Pancakes (via Ambitious Kitchen)
This recipe uses a combination of cooked quinoa and whole wheat flour for a super fluffy pancake texture that’s full of wholesome grains and yummy goodness. You can use almond milk or regular milk (or soy milk) in this recipe and I love that it calls for fresh blueberries. Sprinkle with some powdered sugar and you’ve got yourself a mouth full of yum!
Zucchini Blueberry Pancakes (via Pinch of Yum)
I’ve heard of zucchini muffins, and I can even deal with zucchini brownies…but zucchini pancakes? They seem almost too good to be true. These pancakes are packed with a hidden serving of veggies and topped with a delicious serving of fresh fruit. The zucchini actually gives the pancakes a really moist, light texture and the blueberries add so much sweet/tart flavor. Top with cottage cheese and honey for a creamy, dreamy, sweet finish.
Greek Yogurt Blueberry Pancakes (via Buzzfeed)
Greek yogurt added to almost any recipe gives you the right to consider it healthy. These blueberry pancakes are made with Greek yogurt instead of oil or butter so eat up! The Greek yogurt also makes this breakfast full of protein and adds so much to the texture of the batter. These fluffy pancakes will be moist and delicious every single time!
Blueberry Cheesecake Flapjacks (via Taste of Home)
Some call it breakfast, some call it dessert, I call it amazing. This recipe for blueberry cheesecake flapjacks is the perfect combination of breakfast and dessert. Complete with graham cracker crumbles and fresh blueberries, these pancakes are like a short stack of heaven on Earth. You can use low-fat cream cheese and reduced-fat graham crackers to help save on calories. Trust me, eating this whole stack of pancakes is worth every calorie in my eye.
Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes (via Damn Delicious)
These pancakes are made with wholesome ingredients like oats, milk, Greek yogurt, blueberries, eggs, and unsalted butter to yield fabulously healthy (and tasty) pancakes that will keep you full and satisfied right up until lunch time. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup for a sticky sweet finish!
Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes (via Simply Delicious)
Ricotta cheese works wonders in this pancake recipe, making these flapjacks dense yet fluffy at the same time. The ricotta also gives this breakfast great flavor the whole family will enjoy. Use fresh blueberries in this recipe and sprinkle with cinnamon. The combination of cinnamon and ricotta is absolutely amazing!
I am not as big on fruit IN my pancakes, but the cottage cheese pancakes with the compote look absolutely perfect.
Omg these all look so good I can’t decide to try which first! Guess I’ll just have to spend the whole weekend taste testing pancakes 🙂
