Blueberry Pancakes

Blueberry Pancakes

My uncle is a blueberry farmer so I spent many summers as a child on his farm eating as many blueberries as I could get my hands on! I recall these childhood memories every time I eat this delicious fruit so I couldn’t wait to pair them with one of my all-time-favourite dishes…pancakes!

Pancakes are the ultimate ‘feel-good’ dish. These pancakes are light and fluffy, yet filling and hearty. We serve ours with maple syrup and extra blueberries on top!

  1. Why do you use self rising w w flour? The recipe has baking powder and baking soda in it. I make my own ground w w flour so how can I make this recipe with it?

    1. Hi Margurete, the recipe should work OK with your homemade whole wheat flour. Let us know how it goes. Thanks, Roxy (So Vegan)

  2. Hi,
    Could you use another fruit in place of blueberries? Such as strawberries?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Krish, yes you can try with lots of different berries!

  3. How much baking powder should i use incase i have ordinary whole wheat flour and dont want any baking soda in my pancakes.

    1. Hi Tracy, you could try one and half teaspoons of baking powder. Let us know how it goes. Many thanks, Roxy (So Vegan)

  4. Hi
    I don’t like bananas, is there a way of making the pancake without them? Thanks!!

    1. Hi Amy, you could try use a chia egg instead. If you mix 1 tbsp chia seeds with 3 tbsp water. Thanks, Roxy (So Vegan)
