Dry Ingredients:

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 ¾ cup milk or almond milk
  • 3 eggs separated
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted (or vegan butter)
  • 1 cup blueberries


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In another medium bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the milk, egg yolks (set whites aside for later) and butter.
  • Place the egg whites in a small mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, whip the eggs whites on high until they form fluffy stiff peaks.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and combine with a rubber spatula until just a few flour streaks remain. When the batter is almost mixed add the egg whites and gently fold in until no dry streaks of flour remain.
  • Cook the pancakes on a hot buttered griddle or skillet. Add 5-6 blueberries per pancake while cooking. Serve and enjoy!


MAKE IT DAIRY-FREE: Use almond milk and vegan butter. Unfortunately there is no substitute for the eggs. 
  • Buckwheat Flour: My preference is to use freshly ground buckwheat flour. I do this by grinding raw buckwheat groats into flour in my blender. You can also use regular buckwheat flour.
  • Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour: Be sure to select a high-quality gluten-free flour for best results.
