These flourless blueberry oatmeal pancakes are so so delicious! They make a quick and easy healthy breakfast that is kid-friendly too, my toddler loved these! If you’re organized you can make the pancakes in about 10-15 minutes. You need 6 simple ingredients and this healthy pancake recipe is made without banana and flour.
That’s right, we’ll use the magic of oatmeal. Also some yogurt, also some butter or coconut oil and also some honey or maple syrup, no refined sugar here. And let’s not forget about the addition of vanilla which makes this recipe so incredibly crave-worthy. Can’t believe I said that.
Flourless Blueberry Oatmeal Pancake Ingredients
These pancakes are very tasty and I’m not gonna lie: you might end up eating all of them. But that’s okay because the ingredients are actually good for you. Here’s what you need:
- one egg
- honey or maple syrup
- baking soda
- coconut oil or butter
You can turn all these ingredients into an egg with some oatmeal or simply make these pancakes.
3 Ways To Make Healthy Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes
Option 1: I made this oatmeal pancake recipe by grinding regular oats to flour using my nut grinder (a food processor will also work). After that, you add the rest of the ingredients, except the blueberries to the mix and combine it all together. Then comes the pancake making process, where you cover each pancake with blueberries while cooking.
Option 2: Another way to make the pancakes this way is to use oat flour. You’ll simply proceed as described after the whisking part.
Option 3: Finally, a very easy way to make blueberry oatmeal pancakes is to blend all ingredients (except blueberries) using a food processor or a hand blender. I’ve done the hand blender option with these banana oatmeal pancakes – saves time and it’s really easy.
Are These Oatmeal Blueberry Pancakes Healthy
Yes, they are! They’re made with wholesome nourishing ingredients that are far better for your body than regular pancakes. Even better, you get to feed your toddler or your older kid something tasty, something that they will like, but that will also provide their bodies with the nutrients they need to grow up healthy and strong. Here are the benefits of some of the ingredients:
Oats. They’re one of the best options when it comes to grains! High in fiber, rich in protein, contain good amounts of multiple minerals, trace elements and vitamins, such as magnesium, iron, zinc, thiamine and pantothenic acid. (source) Oats have also been shown to help lower levels of bad cholesterol, they help keep your blood sugar stable and might improve gut health. All thanks to their high beta-glucan (type of fiber) and avenanthramide (antioxidants) content. (source)
Blueberries are rich in vitamin C, K and multiple other antioxidants, most importantly the anthocyanins that give blueberries their beautiful color. In fact, blueberries are one of the richest foods in antioxidants, thus helping to prevent premature aging and oxidative stress. (source)
Yogurt. I highly recommend using probiotic yogurt, as it’s not only good for your gut microbiome, but it can help to break down lactose, which many people can’t tolerate. Yogurt is rich in multiple nutrients important for growing bodies like calcium, protein, magnesium, vitamin B12 and potassium.
These blueberry pancakes are also gluten-free (use gluten free oats), much lower in sugar and made without artificial flavors and aromas like most pancakes.
Pancakes On The Go
I’m not kidding when I say you can take these tasty healthy blueberry pancakes for a quick breakfast on the go. You simply let them cool off, then pack them in a Ziploc or in some type of an airtight container and go go go. Great as a snack, breakfast or dessert.
