What is your kids’ favorite breakfast? Mine love scones, eggs & toast, and oatmeal, but nothing makes them happier in the mornings than a big stack of fluffy pancakes!

Usually we only get to enjoy pancakes on the weekends because they’re a bit time-consuming, but this recipe for gluten free blueberry pancakes couldn’t be simpler! They require just a handful of simple ingredients you may already have in your kitchen. Plus, they’re gluten-free and vegan/vegetarian, so the whole family can enjoy a stack!

Our favorite pancake toppings are fresh fruit, peanut butter, and (of course!) maple syrup. What does your family like on their pancakes?

I hope you enjoy this breakfast recipe. Let us know if you get to try them!

  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 10-12 4" pancakes
  • Category: Breakfast

Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (flax meal)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or sugar or honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup milk (or non-dairy substitute)
  • 3/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Instructions

  1. Grease a griddle, and preheat over medium heat. (Or you can use a pan on your stovetop.)
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, flax meal, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, vanilla, applesauce, and milk. Slowly pour the liquid into the dry ingredients, stirring continuously. Mix until you get the lumps out of the batter. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  4. On your griddle, begin to cook the pancakes, using about 1/4 cup of the batter for each one.
  5. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until they start to bubble around the edges and flip. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the griddle, and serve. Top with blueberries and maple syrup.

Notes

Not all gluten-free all purpose flours are the same. You may need to add an extra tablespoon or two of flour to get the right texture.

My kids LOVE bite-sized foods. I mean, who doesn’t? We enjoy everything from bite-size no bake chocolate bites to one of our favorite recipes, spinach and bacon mini quiches. For some reason, it’s so much easier to get my kids to try new foods when they’re in small bites. Everything is better when it’s mini!

Another great thing about bite-sized foods is that they’re super easy to pack in a lunchbox. These Mini Quinoa Pizza Bites are yet another fun-sized food that my kids can’t get enough of! My kids love pizza, so I took all the familiar flavors and used them to introduce another healthy food into my kids’ diet: quinoa! It’s a gluten-free food that’s packed with protein and nutrients. Score!

You can customize these with your family’s favorite pizza toppings – we used olives, spinach and peppers. These are great for meal prepping at the beginning of the week to have lunch ready to go! Of course, don’t forget to pack the pizza sauce for dipping. That’s the best part!

I’m a huge fan of breakfasts that taste like dessert. Who isn’t?! Anything from decadent oatmeal to scones to chocolate pancakes is a great treat in the morning to get our day started on a good note. I know that when I serve up something sweet (but still nutritious), the whole family will love it.

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Shake is a new addition to our sweet breakfast line-up, but it’s already a favorite! I’m a huge fan of smoothies since they’re quick to make and easy to take with us on-the-go. You could double or triple this recipe to feed the whole family one morning!

The combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and banana is heavenly here, and oatmeal adds extra nutrition. Your kids will never know they’re slurping down something that’s actually good for them!

One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh berries available. Especially here in Louisiana, where locally grown strawberries are ruby red and juicier than any fruit you’ll ever try. It makes me even more thankful to live in a place with such tasty food!

Since summer is basically just a time for me to figure out how to eat the most amount of berries I possibly can, I have to get creative with recipes. My favorite? Smoothies! I love freezing fresh berries and throwing them in the blender for creamy, refreshing smoothies.

This Triple Berry Smoothie is one of our favorites right now! Berries are a great source of antioxidants, so we have three types of berries in here for the nutrition punch. And the tastiness. :) Greek yogurt adds protein and creaminess, and you can even add a handful of spinach for extra nutrients.

You and your kids will love this refreshing Triple Berry Smoothie for breakfast or a snack on warm summer days!
