Vegan Blueberry Muffin Buckwheat Pancakes


I haven't posted a new pancake recipe for a few months but I think this one will definitely make up for that! Before I created this recipe I'd planned on adding blueberries to my pancakes for a while but wasn't sure how they'd turn out; luckily the experiment was successful and the result was a delicious stack of pancakes which tasted exactly like a blueberry muffin - plus they're incredibly good for you, so it's a win-win! I'll be posting a recipe on my blog every Monday and Wednesday from now on and vegan lifestyle tips or a product review every Sunday so don't forget to subscribe to my mailing list so you know exactly when there's a new post!






Ingredients
Makes 5 - 6 small pancakes

  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flaxseed and 6 tbsp water)
  • 1/2 cup (90g) buckwheat flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp mixed spice
  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup (70g) blueberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • Oil of choice (I use coconut) for cooking


Method

The first thing you need to do is make your flax eggs; to do this simply mix the ground flaxseed and water together in a cup and leave it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to thicken up. 

When your flax eggs are ready you can begin making your pancakes. Firstly, sift the flour, baking powder and mixed spice into a large mixing bowl and stir them all together. Mash your banana into a pulp (you can leave behind a few slices to top the pancakes with if you wish) then add it into the bowl along with the non-dairy milk, flax eggs, blueberries and vanilla extract. Mix well until everything is combined - the consistency should be fairly thick, similar to that of cake mixture.

Heat your oil of choice in a frying pan over a medium heat; I have a non-stick frying pan so I only have to use a tiny amount of oil but you may need to use more if you don't have one. When the oil has heated up pour about 1/4 cup of the batter into the centre of the pan and spread it out slightly with a spoon, forming a pancake shape. Let it cook for a minute or two, until bubbles start forming on the top, then flip it over and cook it for another minute or so. Repeat with the rest of the mixture, then add your toppings and enjoy!

  4. I tried these and they turned out really delissh! I used swedish blueberries so they got this slight blue/purple colour. I also "unveganized" them a bit using a mix of 50/50 milk and water, and regular eggs as we did not have any flax seeds at home. It worked out fine, the batter was perhaps less thick than it should have been, but I made up for it by frying bigger pancakes. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you, I hope you enjoy it if you make it! It's just a spice that you find in supermarkets but you can use 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/2 tsp nutmeg instead if you like :) x

  7. Just demolished a stack of these; I think they're to become my new go-to grain free pancake recipe! They have the fluffy texture of a regular pancake with the delicious, more complex flavour from the buckwheat :) Next on my list are your gingerbread buckwheat pancakes! Thanks!
