Skip the Box Pancake Mixes

The best part about this recipe is we are skipping the boxed pancake mix! Now before you turn away, making homemade pancake mix is so much better than the box stuff. Homemade pancake mix usually results in a much fluffier, buttery smooth, and more filling pancake. Plus, since I love the sticky sweet syrup, I can also control how much sugar I put into my mix. Box pancake mix tends to be really high in sugar and when you already want to top your fluffy pancakes with that sticky maple gold, sometimes it’s just a bit too sweet.

Make ‘Em and Freeze ‘Em

One of the most amazing parts of this recipe is the fact that these pancakes freeze great! Some mornings I am just way too busy with work and everyday life to make a homemade breakfast. Making a batch of these blueberry pancakes is great meal prep and an awesome time saver for those hectic mornings.

If you wanted, you could also double this recipe to have your freezer stocked for those busy work, school, or just general life mornings! Everyone loves a fluffy, sweet, gooey blueberry pancake in the morning. You can pair it with your favorite smoothie or morning juice, or even top them with sliced banana. With the upcoming winter season, it is so nice to have a nice warm breakfast ready to go on a chilly winter morning.

Please note when freezing your blueberry pancakes, just make the pancakes in the way described above, freeze the pancakes flat and not touching, then toss them into a freezer-safe container or plastic bag, they will stay fresh for up to two months!

To re-heat these pancakes you can just toss them in your favorite frying pan to warm them up, or you could even pop them into the microwave while you’re making your morning cup of coffee or tea. Either way you choose to re-heat your delicious blueberry pancakes, you will so glad you decided to make these beauties in the first place!

How To Make Blueberry Pancakes – Step By Step

Before I break down my recipe I know a lot of people are looking for amazing vegan and gluten-free alternatives to amazing blueberry pancakes. I found an awesome recipe here, that can show you how to make a gluten-free and vegan version of this breakfast classic.

The first step to making these tasty blueberry pancakes is to grab a large mixing bowl. In your bowl, add in your flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Give the dry ingredients a good mix to make sure all of the ingredients are mixed together fully. A whisk breaks up any large chunks of flour and will give us an even smoother mix.

Next, we will mix in our wet ingredients — granulated sugar, eggs, milk, and cooled melted butter. Make sure you never add anything too hot to a mixture that involves eggs in order to prevent from cooking the eggs while you are making your mix. Whisk all of the ingredients in your bowl and set to the side.

We want to now wash our blueberries, I will be using about 1 1/2 cups but this will be more of a personal preference. I personally like a TON of fresh blueberries in my pancakes, but, my husband prefers less. So you can top your pancakes with however many blueberries you prefer!

One of the most important steps in making pancakes is to get a nice big frying pan or skillet and make sure that the heat is on medium-high heat. When cooking pancakes you may need to adjust the heat from time to time. Sometimes your pan may get a bit too hot, but that is ok! Just make sure to turn the heat down when needed — that way we make sure the pancakes cook thoroughly.

Once you have your large frying pan or skillet nice and hot, add a tablespoon of butter to the pan and make sure the entire pan is coated.

Pro Tip: I use a 1/4 measuring cup to make the perfect-sized pancakes, but you can also use a spoon or whatever you have on hand! Also, make sure not to overcrowd your pan with pancakes, if you do this you run the risk of not being able to flip them properly, or that the pancakes will run together.

Once your pancakes start to have a few bubbles popping up on the surface, grab your blueberries and drop them one by one right on top of the pancakes. This way, the blueberries will cook into the mix without you having to stir them all together in your mix, which can cause over mixing and the bleeding of the color of the blueberries into your mix.

Once you have your blueberries in your pancakes, use a large flat spatula to flip each pancake over and continue to cook for another minute or two. Once the pancakes start to puff up a bit and feel firm to the touch in the center, they are finished!

Place your pancakes on a plate while you cook the other pancakes in the same exact way we discussed until you are out of pancake batter.

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?

The short and sweet answer is yes, of course! A lot of the times when I am perusing my favorite local grocery store and catch a great sale on blueberries I will buy them bring them home, wash them and freeze them. You can also use frozen blueberries in smoothies and other baked goods! Just do not thaw your frozen blueberries, once you thaw them they will just fall apart because of their high water content. You can drop your frozen blueberries into your pancakes just as you would with the fresh and they will completely thaw and cook while you are cooking your pancakes!

* In my recipe I made I did use almond milk, but you can use any type of mil you keep in your fridge, oat milk, and soy milk also work well!

* If you want to freeze your blueberry pancakes just make the pancakes in the way described above, freeze the pancakes flat and not touching, then toss them into a freezer-safe container or plastic bag, they will stay fresh for up to two months!
