Michigan Blueberry Pancakes

We always pick blueberries in July/August in Michigan. So our family buys a few pounds (like 80 or so) and freezes them for use the rest of the year. Makes wonderful pancakes in the winter!



  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix wet ingredients in another bowl (except not the berries). Add the wet ingredients all at once to the dry ingredients. Mix until just together. Don't over mix. If there are lumps, its ok. Let sit for 5-10 minutes. Get pan ready for frying pancakes. Melt coconut oil on medium heat.
  2. Ladle pancake mixture onto hot pan. Add a handful of berries to the top of the pancakes. If they are frozen, don't thaw them out. Just put on frozen. They will thaw as they cook.
  3. Cook pancakes on first side a few minutes, until you see bubbles on the top. Then flip and cook on blueberry side 2-3 more minutes. Put on a warm plate or in a warm oven while you cook the rest.
  4. We like to eat them with butter and Michigan pure maple grade B syrup or raw organic honey or cinnamon and sugar. Everyone has their favorite topping!
