Fluffy blueberry pancakes



It has became our traditions to have pancakes on Sundays for breakfast.  I can't imagine our Sunday mornings without them anymore :) Nothing can change it....in case we don't manage on Sunday morning, we would make them for dinner :P I know I know...but pancakes are just too good to leave out! They make the start of the day more enjoyable and I am always looking for the time we spend in the kitchen with my partner to make new and new variations of them..

These pancakes are so delicious, I am sure you will love them. I absolutely love to add some fruits into the dough. I love to see how the juice of the fruits color my plate ..i know its a lot of "love", but that's just what pancakes deserve :D

So what will you need to make your Sunday a more beautiful day:

- 100 grams of spelt flour
- 230 grams of oat-bran (oats cut very thinly)
- 500 ml of oat milk (you can use as well mineral water or any other plant based milk)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp turmeric
- a pinch of salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking powder (phosphor free)
- 4 tbsp maple syrup
- 150 grams of blueberry

This portion serves around 4hungry people :) 
  1. Start with combining the dry ingredients (spelt flour, oat-bran, vanilla, turmeric, salt, cinnamon, baking powder) together.
  2. Combine the wet ingredients (maple syrup and oat milk) in a separate mixing bowl. 
  3. Gradually pour in the wet mixture to the dry, stirring continuously until combined. The oats and flour can soak up the milk differently, depending on the brand. Therefore, you might end up using more or less oat milk, as I have listed in the list of ingredients. Keep on adding the oat milk and mixing the dough until you get a smooth batter. The batter should be fairly thick, but thin enough to drip from the whisk.
  4. Leave the dough to sit for 10 minutes and fold in the blueberries.
  5. Coat a skillet pan with a bit of coconut or olive oil and heat it up to medium heat.
  6. Take a part from the dough and pour it to the skillet making a circular form. If you have a bigger skillet, you can make more pancakes at once :)
  7. Cook the pancakes on medium on one side for about 2minutes, or until little bubbles are formed and outer edges become golden. Flip the pancakes and cook for more 2minutes, or until golden.
  8. Top with more blueberries, maple syrup or almonds.

Enjoyyy :)
