Bursting Blueberry Pancakes… Vegan and Gluten Free!
Better late than never! 😛 Happy weekend everyone! Earlier this week my Autumnal cheesey vegan burgers were featured at Deborah’s plant based pot luck party 🙂 I intended to take something else to the party this week but I didn’t expect it to take so long for me to post! So, here are these gorgeous absolutely bursting with blueberries pancakes! Delicious for a weekend breakfast or brunch, or actually anytime you want something healthy, nutritious and sweet! 😛 The trick to get these blueberries to stay whole is to add them after the batter has started cooking and just lightly press them one at a time into the batter. Flipping them just once during cooking the blueberries should stay ready to burst until you bite into them releasing all their juicy goodness… oh yum!!! 🙂
- 100g porridge oats (Gluten Free if required)
- 150ml milk (I use unsweetened carton coconut)
- 100g (1 medium) banana roughly chopped
- handful of blueberries
- coconut oil
- Blitz the oats in a food processor until you have a fine flour.
- Add the milk and banana and blend until combined.
- Heat a tiny amount of oil in a non stick pan and when melted pour in a ring of batter.
- Swirl the pan gently to enlarge the pancake then as it is cooking CAREFULLY (no burnt fingers needed) drop blueberries onto the batter and gently press in with your fingertips.
- When the batter looks set and had started to get holes appearing, gently flip it over to cook on the other side. Cook for 30-90 seconds (depending how hot your pan is), then carefully remove from the pan turning over so that the blueberries are uppermost.
- Repeat with the remaining batter.
