Blueberry Power-Packed Pancakes

Prep time: 10 min / Cook time: 20 min / Yield: 4 servings

  1. 2 cups and 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  2. 1 scoop Grown American™Superfood
  3. 1 tablespoon sugar
  4. ½ teaspoon baking soda
  5. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  6. ¼ tsp salt
  7. 3 eggs
  8. 2 cups buttermilk
  9. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  10. 1 tablespoon melted butter (cooled)
  11. ¾ cup fresh blueberries
  12. Additional butter or vegetable oil for cooking
In a large bowl mix together flour, Grown American™Superfood, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until thoroughly combined. In another bowl combine the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Then slowly drizzle the cooled melted butter into a wet mixture while whisking. Pour wet mixture over dry mixture and combine. Gently fold in the blueberries. The batter will be lumpy.
Heat a griddle or nonstick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, put about 1 teaspoon of butter or vegetable oil in the pan. When the butter foam subsides or the oil is hot, ladle out pancake mix in ⅛-cup measurements. Cook for about 2 minutes until the top of the pancake bubbles and the bottom turns golden brown. Very carefully flip and cook for about 2 minutes more until the bottom is golden and the pancake is cooked through.
Serve immediately or hold in a warm oven while you make the remaining pancakes. Serve with warm maple syrup, butter, and/or sour cream.
