Blueberry pancakes can be enjoyed any time of the year. If fresh blueberries aren’t available, use frozen blueberries (thawed and drained). These tender, golden gluten free blueberry pancakes can be whisked up in no time. Serve with pure maple syrup. They can be made egg-free; see instructions.

For Egg-Free Blueberry Pancakes, omit 1 egg. Combine 1 tablespoon golden flax meal with 3 tablespoons hot water or hot milk of choice; let sit 5 minutes to thicken and cool. Use this mixture to replace 1 egg in step 2. Reserve 1/4 cup of 1 cup milk in the recipe; use reserved milk to thin batter, 1 tablespoon at a time, if needed.
