Blueberry Whole Wheat Pancakes. Blueberry Whole Wheat Pancakes. I literally had to say these words twice! Haha.
These pancakes are the real deal, ya’ll. If you’re a lover of blueberries then these are PERFECTION! If I'm honest, pancakes are one of the few comfort dishes that I truly enjoy for breakfast and the best part about pancakes is that they are totally customizable to your taste buds needs.
Usually, I am a waffle lover! I'm not sure if it's because of the waffle's ridges or the fact that the syrup gets easily trapped in between each waffle square (which means more syrup to enjoy!), however, pancakes have been my second love. Whenever I do make pancakes, I definitely enjoy them, especially these pancakes. I love blueberry, so this was a very enjoyable recipe for me. Previously, I made these Vegan Banana Pancakes, which were really good also. But I must admit, my favorite pancakes were these Vegan Apple Cinnamon Pancakes, which were so amazing! It felt like you were eating a healthier version of a nice warm apple pie. Yum!
The even better thing is that my little guy LOVED these pancakes too and I was ecstatic. He usually eats his frozen waffles (or french toast), which are organic and from Earth's Best, however, when I make homemade breakfast, I always love that he loves it. Haha. Plus, these pancakes are packed with whole-grains and nutrients so that's obviously a Yippee!
When it comes to cooking your pancakes, keeping the heat on low is the key. This ensures that your pancakes are fully cooked through without making the outsides dark before their time.
Ensuring that the leaveners that are used (baking powder, baking soda, etc) aren’t expired and are completely fresh. This ensures that your pancakes rise at their best and are super fluffy as intended.
Once all ingredients are well combined after stirring with a spatula, no need to keep mixing. Remember, you want airy, fluffy pancakes—not chewy pancakes due to the gluten formulating from over-mixing.
I find that using a flat cast-iron griddle works the best when making pancakes. Unfortunately, a regular sauté pan isn’t flat enough (slopped sides?) aren’t friendly in making the perfect stack.
I’ve been guilty of this in the past. No flipping those pancakes the moment a little crust forms on the bottom. Nope. Only flip to the opposite side once the bubbles have ‘popped’ and opened into holes, which means that all of the bottom is formed and OK to flip. Got it?
Oh and I've recently purchased these granolas by Purely Elizabeth and they are so great and full of flavor! The one shown in this photo includes blueberries, quinoa, millet, and chia seeds.
And I also have a few of the other flavors such as the Pumpkin seeds version and the original. They are all packed with such great nutrients and are definitely a great source of fiber as well.
Well, I know that you guys are probably wondering, why these pancakes anyway? Well, for starters, they are absolutely fluffy, airy, soft, jam-packed with warm spices, easy to make, and bursting with blueberries in EVERY. SINGLE. BITE.
In addition, I added oatmeal which has great fiber and makes as a great "filler" in your meals. Hand in hand, each ingredient added a nice touch to this recipe. Let's not forget about the fact that these pancakes are completely oil-free (Thanks to melted vegan butter) and using all vegan ingredients. Ummm......Goodness!
