These blueberry pancakes are made with yogurt and oats for a lighter weekend brunch. They’re easy to make, loaded with protein and perfect for a crowd!
- 1 ⅔ cups all-purpose flour
- ⅔ cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons cane sugar
- 1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup milk
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil melted plus more for the pan
- 2 large eggs
- ¾ cup blueberries
- Maple syrup for serving
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In another large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: Greek yogurt, milk, melted coconut oil and eggs.
Transfer the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Gently fold in the blueberries.
Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Melt some butter in the pan. Working in batches, scoop 1/3 cup of the batter onto the hot griddle. Cook until the edges firm up and you can slide spatula under the pancake, about 3-4 minutes. Flip the pancake and cook for another 1-2 minutes until the pancake is cooked through. Repeat for the remaining batter. Recipe yields about 12 pancakes.
Serve immediately with maple syrup, if desired
Freezing Instructions: Cool the pancakes, then place them between layers of wax paper, then place in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat, place in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or in the oven at 350ºF until they’re hot and heated through, about 5-7 minutes.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
- I tested this recipe with a whole wheat white flour, but it will work with other all purpose flours.
- To make this gluten-free, use an all-purpose gluten-free flour or oat flour.
- To make it vegan, you can use flax egg.
- Use frozen blueberries instead of fresh blueberries if you’d like. There’s no need to thaw them.
