Blueberry Spelt Pancakes

Print Friendly

As you probably guessed it from the name, these pancakes are made with spelt flour. http://bakingbites.com/2008/04/what-is-spelt-flour/” target=”_blank”>Spelt flour is a great option for people who need/want to avoid wheat. This is wheat free flour; it is also low in gluten. In fact; the gluten in spelt flour breaks down much easier. This type of flour also contains fewer calories. Plus, the texture of the finished product is very similar to recipes made from wheat flour, so it’s hard to tell the difference.

Also, as the name states, the recipe includes blueberries. These little “brain berries” are full of antioxidants that help rid the body of free radicals. They also have potassium, Vitamin C, and Fiber. Additionally, the recipe includes everyday products like vinegar, milk, baking powder, vanilla extract, eggs, and powdered sugar. Products found in many households.

The recipe is very easy. Coat the griddle with your choice of butter or oil. Mix up your milk and vinegar and allow it to set for 3 minutes. Then add the rest of the ingredients as directed. Pour about 1/3 of a cup of batter on the griddle. You’ll know when the pancake is ready to be flipped by the little bubbles forming and the solidity of the sides. Once you flip it you’ll only need to cook for about another minute or two. The total time it takes to make these pancakes is about 10 minutes. You’ll have enough pancakes to serve yourself and a friend.
