Blueberry Pancakes

Blueberry Pancakes

I appreciate a good pancake. Living in New Jersey, home of blueberries, means house of the blueberry pancakes? Right? Blueberry pancakes (or any fruit) or typically easy because most people have blueberries, strawberries, or some fruit in their home. You don’t have to go to 12 grocery stores looking for an ingredient.

As a runner, I like easy, fast, and simple recipes. When I’m done with a run, I want food immediately. That’s why I gravitate towards pancakes. Pancakes are easy and quick.



Blueberry Pancake Recipe:

Stemming from my original basic pancake recipe, these blueberries pancakes are yet another hit when I’m craving pancakes.  Let’s be honest here as children my parents didn’t say “Hey Hollie do you want this paleo protein almond flour with a hint of coconut zest and salmon pancake.”  They said “Hey Hollie, want pancakes…we have blueberries.”

Blueberry Pancake Ingredients: 

2/3 cup flour
1/4 cup sweetener (sugar or an equal cup for cup artificial)
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup milk
1 egg
2 teaspoons oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ cup fresh blueberries (or frozen blueberries)

Maple syrup and melted butter

Blueberry Pancakes Directions:

  1. Combine dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
  3. Add liquid until the desired consistency of the blueberry pancakes is achieved.
  4. Add a cup of batter to griddle.
  5. Add blueberries onto the top of the pancake batter and cook on medium to high heat (I use 350 degrees)
  6. Wait until blueberry pancakes begin bubbling and flip.
  7. Once the blueberry pancakes have cooked evenly on both sides and are super fluffy pancakes and golden brown, serve.


Blueberry pancakes are always a hit no matter the age.


Question for you: What was your favorite pancake as a child? 


  1. Love this- this is how I make pancakes, too! (except for when I’m trying to use up the buckwheat flour I still have.) but the best type of pancake is clearly chocolate chip.

  2. Haha I like the little dialogue between parents and kids. I’m pretty sure my parents don’t know such weird ingredients even exist. They’re all about the bisquick mix. Classic pancakes are the way to a girl’s heart (or a guy, I suppose if we’re the ones making them). I’m a plain jane girl. The regular pancakes sans mix ins are my favorite.

  3. Mmmm! When my family visited a few weeks ago, I had the most delicious chocolate chip pancakes–totally a throwback to my childhood. 😉

  4. Couldn’t agree more about goofy recipe ingredients. I have no idea when things got so complicated, but I miss the days where pancakes were just made with flour, milk, sugar, and whatever add ins. My mom made the best buttermilk pancakes for me when I was growing up, and they were even better with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

  5. I made some pancakes with reeses pieces in them recently, those were pretty delicioussss.

  6. I am in tears over the paleo protein almond flour statement. I don’t get why on Instagram and just about everywhere else the phrase Protein has to proceed everything. Check out my protein water or my protein air I am breathing. WTF is that all about?

  7. Ahh yes a classic, love it. Blueberry pancakes were among my favorite, along with chocolate chip and good old buttermilk, fluffy, buttery pancakes! I actually loved to make them when I was younger and would cook them for my brothers almost every Saturday morning. I always had the first one as it was the most buttery, and crisp on the edges 🙂

  8. Mmm classic definitely. This is what is not so fun about this whole paleo thing I’m doing 🙂 I would have to say I enjoyed regular old plain pancakes with peanut butter and syrup when I was a kiddo.

  9. Mmmmmm love me some blueberry pancakes!! Although, if I have to choose I think my fav is plain topped with peanut butter. It’s the only way to eat a plain pancake. 😉

  10. Such a classic. Nom. I hope you had fun in TX with Tim! I was totally creeping on your Facebook tis morning 😉

  11. LOL no, my parents also never asked if I wanted a paleo protein-frosted pancake with shaman-blessed chia seeds…it was just straight up pancakes. Flour, eggs, milk (sometimes orange juice for a little zing!), sugar, and add-ins. My dad would make them in the shape of a “K” for me sometimes, special. Actually, for the first few years of my life we were a little financially strapped and so we used the boxed pancake mix….yeah, Bisquick lol. And Aunt Jemimah syrup, not the real kind. Nowadays I have to make mine with gluten-free flour so that I can actually digest them, but they don’t taste different. And blueberry is my absolute favorite kind! It’s a classic!

  12. I don’t like blueberries, but I like the fact that I get to run with you in a few days so I am just going to focus on that. I think chocolate chips in my waffles/pancakes or raspberries in them are my favorite.

    My mom never really made them with anything special in them as a kid. I was happy with plain pancakes and lots of butter, I wonder sometimes why I am not 500 pounds when I look back at some of my old eating habits. Hell, I wonder that with some of my CURRENT eating habits.

  13. O yum! I love summertime blueberry pancakes and pie 😀 One time I had a smurfalicious day and ate all blue things lol. The blueberry pancakes at IHOP however are a bit ridiculous, the blueberries sort of saturate the pancakes on top!
