Fluffy Blueberry Vanilla Pancakes

Soft buttery blueberry pancakes with just a hint of cinnamon! This is one breakfast you can’t wait to wake up to!

Warm delicious blueberry pancakes that are so soft and fluffy! You'll be flying out of bed for these in the morning!

Can we all just admit there’s something so nostalgic about sitting down to a huge stack of pancakes in the morning?! (Especially if it’s the weekend right?! 😉 ) I have no idea why but weekends and pancakes just seem to go together in my book. And these fluffy blueberry vanilla pancakes are some of the thickest, most delicious pancakes I have ever made!

These soft melt-in-your-mouth pancakes are just what you need for your next brunch! They're so easy to make and are so fluffy too!


Simpler is always better in my opinion, especially when it comes to ingredients. And these ingredients are as basic as you can get! Here’s what I used below:

  • Gluten free flour mix: I used Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Baking Flour for this recipe.
  • Maple syrup: Can be replaced with your favorite sweetener. (Examples: granulated sugar, brown sugar, coconut sugar, agave, etc.)
  • Egg
  • Unsweetened almond milk: I used original almond milk for these pancakes but you can also use vanilla almond milk too.
  • Baking powder: Do no use baking soda for this recipe!
  • Vanilla
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Blueberries: You can also replace these with your favorite berries too!

What makes these pancakes so fluffy?

It’s all about the baking powder loves! Most pancake recipes only call for 1 teaspoon of baking powder but mine has us using a whopping 4! If you don’t have baking powder then you can always substitute it with 1+1/4 teaspoons of baking soda instead. (Baking soda is a much stronger leavening agent than baking powder so you don’t need quite as much.)

Warm buttery pancakes that are loaded with tart blueberries! This easy recipe is about to become a breakfast favorite!

How do I know when to flip my pancakes?

After pouring your batter into the pan, wait until you see little bubbles appear on the top and sides of your pancakes. This is the signal that they’re ready to flip! After flipping, cook the pancakes on the other side for about 3-4 more minutes.

Thick fluffy pancakes that are also gluten free and dairy free! They taste so decadent, you'll never guess they're healthier for you too!

Do I have to use gluten free flour?

Not at all! If you don’t need this recipe to be gluten free, then simply replace the full amount of gluten free flour with regular all purpose flour. It’s that easy!

All I can say is if soft melt-in-your-mouth pancakes are your thing, you’re definitely going to want to make these fluffy blueberry vanilla pancakes ASAP!

Hope you all are having a fantastic day! 🙂
