I make homemade blueberry pancakes from scratch just about every single weekend. I absolutely LOVE them. It makes the weekend mornings special when I can get up early, brew some piping hot coffee, and make something homemade for me and Matt to eat together. The weekend mornings are a time where we slow down.
I am an early riser by nature so I love getting up before the sun to play with the pets, edit photos, and get a head start on recipe making in the kitchen. It's my, "me time". I find that I'm extremely productive when I get up before sunrise and it just makes my day that much better in general as I know I have already accomplished things I needed to do.
For this recipe I used my $30 Presto Electric Ceramic Griddle. It's non stick, lightweight, easy to clean, and great for cooking lots of things especially pancakes! It was a wedding gift and is one of our most used items we received. Highly recommend.
Lately I have discovered a secret weapon to upping my pancake game: using coconut milk (original) in the batter.
I usually use almond milk (unsweetened vanilla) but I've seen a difference in flavor using the coconut milk. It's a little creamier than the almond milk so it makes the pancakes taste even better in my opinion.
I love topping my pancakes with banana slices, some shredded coconut flakes, and of course maple syrup! Yummy!
Fluffy Cinnamon & Blueberry Pancakes Recipe (Vegan / Dairy Free / Plant Based)
Makes 7-8 medium pancakes
1 cup all purpose flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup coconut milk (original)
2 T maple syrup
2 T coconut oil (melted)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup fresh blueberries
optional toppings: maple syrup, banana slices, and shredded coconut
1. In a large mixing bowl, add dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir well.
2. Add wet ingredients next: coconut milk, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla. Stir well again.
3. Fold in the blueberries until well coated. Set aside.
4. Preheat a large nonstick griddle to 375 F.
5. Scoop out 1/3 cup scoops of batter and pour onto hot griddle leaving a few inches between each pancake.
6. Once you start seeing bubbles come through, flip it! It should be golden brown.
7. Let the other side cook 1-2 minutes more. You know it's ready when the blueberries pop and juice comes out.
8. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings.
You can also refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.
