Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

I just could not let blueberry season slip away without making blueberry pancakes at least once. Luckily there were still a lot of blueberries at the farmers market on the weekend and I picked some up. For a recipe, I started with the banana buttermilk pancakes that I had made a while ago and really liked. I have been trying to work more whole wheat flour into my baking lately so I swapped some in for some of the all purpose flour. I replaced the remaining all purpose flour with some ground rolled oats as I had done in the blueberry maple oatmeal muffins that I had just made. The blueberry oatmeal pancakes turned out pretty good. They were a bit more difficult to flip than normal pancakes but they had a nice light texture and they were really moist. I served the pancakes with some maple syrup, blueberries and pecans as garnish. I enjoyed the pancakes so mush that I made them again on the weekend. The second time I made them I enjoyed them with the remaining blueberry maple syrup from the blueberry and shrimp salad from earlier in the week.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats (ground in food processor)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter (melted)
1 overripe banana (mashed)
1/2 cup blueberries

Directions:
1. Mix the flour, rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
2. Mix the maple syrup, buttermilk, egg, butter and banana in another bowl.
3. Mix the wet and dry ingredients.
4. Mix in the blueberries.
5. Heat a pan and melt a touch of butter in it.
6. Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture into the pan and cook until the surface starts to bubble and the bottom is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
7. Flip the pancake and cook the other side until the bottom is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.

Well, it appears that you had no problem flipping them at all! They're so deliciously deep golden brown and smooth, I love it :) The maple syrup cascading all over it is killing me!

The Konosur said...

I try to steer clear of pancakes because they are oh-so-good but bad for you, ... if I had Canadian maple syrup I would make them all the time.

Mochachocolata Rita said...

Tasty Trends said...

blueberry pancakes are the best! i love your healthy version of it!

Darius T. Williams said...

LOL - you totally do what I do. When you've gotta get rid of something - the next few meals have that main ingredient. I bought a bunch of shrimp and fish this past weekend - can we just say that seafood is on the menu for the next few days - lol.

Delicious! The pecans on top are calling my name.

Lisa said...

They look like they turned out perfectly. I too cooked with blueberries over the weekend. I am sad to see the blueberries go out of season as they are my favorite berry treat.

Dawn said...

Great golden brown color. Looks great to me.

Esi said...

These look so great and I like how you incorporated whole wheat flour into them.

Pam said...

Okay, something is not fair here. My blueberry season amounted to 3 handfuls of blueberries!

Elle said...

Kevin, those look absolutely perfect!

Maya said...

I like how you topped the pancakes with nuts.

hot garlic said...

Oh Kevin, you're killing me! This is EXACTLY what I would order for breakfast. And I love the nuttiness {and fiber!} the whole wheat flour and oats add.

This sounds like a tasty change from the usual style of pancakes I'm used to (e.g. including whole wheat, oats, maple in the batter, etc). They look great!

Elly said...

These look great, Kevin. And healthy too! I think I will try this base, soon. I am horrible at flipping pancakes/omelets...pretty much anything :)

Hannah said...

Possibly the best use for blueberries, aside from just eating them plain, is dropping them into pancakes. Looks incredible!

Jeanne said...

MAN, I need to make pancakes more often. These look totally heavenly - great shot!

icaladenel said...

this was the PERFECT recipe! not only were the pancakes light and moist as you said, but they're incredibly healthy too! i substituted yogurt and a bit of water in the place of buttermilk, and they still turned out wonderfully. thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us! :D

mayan. said...
