Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

I love Pinterest…and who doesn’t? I tried to fight joining for a while, but I can tell you that these past few months of browsing through have led me to some great recipes that I might not have otherwise found.
I really like the flavor of these because the oat flour gives them something extra. Next time I will toast the oats before grinding them up in the food processor to kick that “oaty” flavor up a notch. These would be great with strawberries in place of the blueberries and I’m sure I’ll get around to trying that variation soon. This recipe made 14 pancakes, which is great for us because I can freeze for future quick breakfasts for the kids. Now that we have a few mornings a week when we have to leave early, it really saves me time and worry. Thanks for reading, enjoy!
Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes – adapted from Cooking Classy
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp lightly packed oat flour*
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Preheat a non-stick griddle over medium heat. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together oat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large mixing bowl combine buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter. Stir in dry ingredients (mixture should by slightly lumpy, don’t over-mix). Pour 1/4 cup mixture onto buttered preheated griddle then drop about 10 -12 blueberries onto pancake. Flip pancake when bubbles start to appear on surface and bottom is golden.  Cook opposite side until golden.  Repeat process with remaining batter.  Serve pancakes warm topped maple syrup and butter.

*Oat flour can be purchased in the health food section of most super-markets. You can also make your own by grinding 1 1/2 cups whole oats in a food processor for about 2-3 minutes, until it is very fine.  I prefer the actual oat flour over grinding my own, it presents a slightly better texture.  Also, lightly pack the oat flour when you are measuring it, I found it measures a bit different then all purpose flour.
