Blueberry Pancakes

With Pancake Day approaching I thought I would post up this blueberry pancake recipe. These are American-style pancakes which are extra delicious when eaten with a mixture of blueberry syrup and fresh berries, but can also be topped with anything of your choice. I’ve made the recipe vegan and gluten-free and tried to avoid using any processed ingredients so that a wide variety of people can enjoy them.

  • For the pancakes:
    • 1 cup oats
    • 1/4 cup brown rice flour

Method:

  1. For the Pancakes:
    1. Put all the dry ingredients except for the brown rice flour into a food processor. This includes the oats, flaxseeds, baking powder and pinch of salt. Bend them together until the oats have turned into a flour.
    2. Add in the wet ingredients: Almond milk, maple syrup and coconut oil to the mixture. Blend everything together.
    3. Add in the blueberries, turn the food processor on again but only in short bursts, leaving some blueberries whole while reducing others in size.
    4. Transfer the mixture from the food processor to a mixing bowl and sift in the brown rice flour. Whisk everything together.
    5. Melt a small amount of coconut oil in a saucepan. Using a ladle take some of the mixture and gently pour into the centre of the saucepan. Leave it to cook on one side until bubbles appear on the surface, then using a spatula flip the pancake to cook on the other side. Do this until you finish all of the mixture, using one ladle of mixture per pancake.
  2. For the Syrup:
    1. Over a low heat, heat up a mixture of maple syrup and blueberries until the syrup has taken the colour of berries and the berries have softened.
