These pancakes are the literal best. So fluffy and buttermilky and tangy and sweet(y) that I’m not even sure I can handle myself. My one regret with this recipe was that I didn’t make more and now I’m out of lemons and blueberries and that’s going to mandate a trip to the store so this can be my Saturday breakfast.

I have to give Kev some credit for these for his moment of genius. I was halfway through making the lemon batter for my original plan of Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes when I realized we only had a few poppyseeds left. You really can’t make Lemon Poppyseed pancakes without a healthy dosage of poppyseeds…not happening. Kev suggested we throw some blueberries in there instead and then the world changed. I was skeptical while the batter was sizzling on the griddle, because I had a bit of a challenge getting the cakes flipped without the blueberries flying every direction, but once that problem was solved and I took my first bite, I knew these would be making their appearance in the Van Slyke household for years to come. I feel like I’m cheating on my Coconut Chia Pancakes a bit, but they’ll understand, right?

In other news, we still haven’t bought meat since January started and yesterday was the first day I actually felt like I needed a giant cheeseburger. That’s coming from the girl who went 23 years of her life without ever wanting to look at a hamburger, let alone eat one!
We’re absolutely loving all the new veggie friendly recipes we’ve been eating lately, but I think every once in awhile some grease and fat is necessary. Just a little. I think I’d be satisfied with just a little nibble of a burger or a big slice of pepperoni pizza.
I asked Kev if he was missing meat last night and he got a sly look on his face and told me that his office stocks beef jerky, so he’s been getting his fix that way. It really has been good though – I’ve had more overall energy, we’ve been saving money, and cooking has been much simpler!

These pancakes have been approved wholeheartedly and I’m 100% positive that they’ll be sneaking back onto our breakfast plates again this weekend.

  1. I think I need these pancakes in my life! I love the lemon/blueberry combo here – it’s always such a winner whether it’s cakes, pancakes or muffins. Next Tuesday is Pancake Tuesday here in Australia, so these are very well-timed, I think! 🙂

  2. Made these yesterday! They were amazing and totally hit the spot. I didn’t have buttermilk on hand but I made some by adding lemon juice to the milk and used frozen blueberries instead. They weren’t nearly as beautiful as the ones on the blog but they were sure yummy!
