Blueberry Pancakes
Christmas morning breakfast at my house today :yummy:


3 eggs, beaten
¼ c. heavy cream
¼ c. water
¼ tsp. vanilla extract
6 drops liquid sweetener (I use EZSweets
½ c. Carbquick bake mix
½ c. Jennifer Eloff’s Splendid Gluten-Free bake mix: (See below)
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. oat fiber (not oat bran or oat flour!)
1 T. flax meal (I use the golden flax for this)
3/4 c. small, wild frozen blueberries (I use Wyman’s)

DIRECTIONS: Beat eggs in a medium mixing bowl. Add cream, water, sweetener and vanilla. Stir well. Add all dry ingredients. Gently fold in berries and let batter thicken a bit while griddle is heating on medium-high heat. Oil griddle with your preferred oil. Using a ¼ c. measuring cup, dip batter onto greased griddle. When 1st side is brown, flip over and brown 2nd side. This batter will make eight 4-4½” pancakes. Top with sugar-free blueberry syrup.

Those look really good, and wouldn't you know I just used up the last of my oat fiber. Copied this and will try after my next order from Netrition comes. Thanks for the recipe........ Ann............. and Happy New Year!

Thanks, Ann. And New Year's Eve is my birthday, too! I hope to ring in the additional year in proper fashion!

You're welcome and what a great day to have a birthday. Mine is April Fools Day and I have paid for that over the years with every April Fool trick and joke you can imagine............ Ann

Oh that does it. I am ordering oat fiber ASAP. I love blueberry pancakes

Made these today for breakfast. Very tasty!! Thanks for the recipe.

Glad you liked them, Pat.

Peggy I made these pancakes yesterday and they were wonderful. I only had large blueberries , I hope to get the small ones at Costco later today. I used Physillium husks like Quiznoid suggested in place of the oat fiber and it worked. My DH was very impressed. It was great having pancakes again!! Thanks for another great recipe.

Oh my--what a wonderful recipe--I have lots of frozen blueberries in my freezer just calling me to make pancakes--I may try these in the waffle iron--thanks for the great recipe and Happy Birthday!!!

Thank you, Jeanne. Hope you like them as much as we did. And Brenda, glad you guys liked them. I really do like a bit of oat fiber in my baked goods. Love the flour flavor and texture improvement it provides. Too much in a recipe is a disaster, but just a small amount does wonders.

Do you think that 1/2 t Glucco could replace the flax? My tummy cannot tolerate flax.

buttoni 12-31-2011 12:45 PM

I've not used any Glucomannon yet, so I don't know. I would think any flour sub like more almond flour, coconut flour or oat flour would do.

Jennifer Eloff 12-31-2011 03:34 PM

Looks soo good!! One could literally double the recipe the way I eat pancakes.

buttoni 01-01-2012 08:17 AM

Man, I always have leftover pancakes, Jen. If hubby didn't like them so much, I'd probably never make them. I find them too heavy for breakfast. But then I'm not much of a sweets eater. I only bake them to experiment, as a challenge, for the one taste or two, and to keep him happy. Gotta keep your man happy, right? LOL

buttoni 01-02-2012 07:02 PM

They WERE good leftover. I had a couple leftover, too, Brenda. I think most pancakes warm up OK the next day. Won't reheat waffles and such, but pancakes do fine as a rule.

I reheated the pancake in my toaster. Worked great. I want to make more of these soon.

rosethorns 01-20-2013 12:16 PM

Peggy I have a question. May I take out the flax and carbquick in this recipe? or add protein powder?

buttoni 01-20-2013 12:54 PM

I think maybe yes, Esther. I'd sub in 1 T. chia gel for the flaxmeal and just use all Jen's bake mix. Mind you the texture will be slightly different, but I think they'll cook OK and taste OK making the changes.

rosethorns 01-20-2013 01:34 PM

OH cool. The GF bake mix sounds perfect. Thanks Peggy.
