A Squared: Blueberry Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

Blueberry Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

It's National Blueberry Pancake Day!

Yes, that's an actual thing and I could not be happier about it. Today, I'm partnering with Driscoll's to share the perfect recipe for celebrating this delicious holiday!


Pancakes are one of my favorite weekend breakfasts. They remind me of growing up and being home with my family when my parents would whip up a triple batch (there were a lot of us, after all) and we'd all sit around the table laughing and eating together on a lazy Sunday morning.


And while I love pancakes in general, I really love blueberry pancakes-- the pop of tart sweetness makes a normal pancake extra special. And the recipe I am sharing with you today is super special: blueberry banana buttermilk pancakes are moist, fluffy, and full of fruit flavor. Buttermilk pancakes are a no brainer, but I love to fold in mashed ripe bananas. They add a great consistency to the pancakes, a subtle banana flavor, and they eliminate the need for extra sugar in the batter. So, between antioxidant rich blueberries, potassium-filled bananas, and the elimination of added sugar you could almost call these pancakes "healthy." Right?


Healthy or not, blueberry pancakes are the perfect breakfast for whipping up to share with your friends and family. It's a comforting and classic breakfast that's definitely a crowd pleaser.

For serving, I highly recommend that you top these pancakes with fresh blueberries. Plump fresh blueberries provide a fun textural difference to the warm and super sweet cooked berries inside the pancakes. And these Driscoll's berries are beautiful, so who wouldn't want to eat a plate full of these pancakes?


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 Tbs. canola oil
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • Cooking spray or butter, for cooking
  • Additional blueberries, sliced bananas, maple syrup, butter for serving

In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the beaten egg, buttermilk, oil, and bananas. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. The batter may be lumpy, but don't overmix it.

Fold in blueberries until evenly distributed.

Lightly grease a large nonstick pan and heat over medium heat. Drop 1/4 cup pancake batter and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the batter begins to bubble and the bottom is golden brown. Flip the pancakes and continue to cook until the edges are dry and the second side is golden brown as well.

Serve warm and top with blueberries, sliced bananas, maple syrup, or butter.
