Blackberry Pancakes with Honey

Who doesn't love pancakes? Duh, nobody. They're the comfort foods of the breakfast world: fluffy, warm, and sweet. How could we make these classics any better? By adding berries and honey as a start. We made our Blackberry Pancakes with gluten-free flour and our Homemade Almond Milk, so they're better for you than the typical boxed mix. You'd think that, being gluten-free, these pancakes would be flat or dry. Thanks to the butter and berries in the batter, they aren't! Honey in the batter keeps the flapjacks moist, too, and adds to their flavor. Avocado Honey is rich and very molasses-like in flavor and would be very good in these berry pancakes. We used our Blackberry Honey to keep with the theme, adding a subtle floral touch and a delicious summery sweetness. We topped our pancakes with blackberries and a few blueberries, so we had a perfect treat.

How to Make Blackberry Pancakes with Honey

  • Gather all the ingredients you need to make these recipes
  • Combine baking powder and salt.
  • Sift the mixture together with flour.
  • Gently mix honey, almond milk, egg, and butter.
  • Pour into the flour mixture and combine with a fork until smooth.
  • Add blackberries to the batter. Fresh or frozen will work, although frozen will break up more in the batter.
  • In a large pan over medium heat, pour around 1/4 of a cup of your pancake batter for each serving. Allow bubbles to begin forming on the surface before you flip.
  • Allow the opposite side of the pancake to brown lightly. If your pancakes are browning too quickly, reduce the heat of your pan.
  • Serve with a drizzle of honey and fresh berries.

Have Fun making Pancakes!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so make sure you have fun and enjoy it! Pancakes are simple to make your own. Just make the basic batter, and then add and take out whatever you like! Not a fan of blackberries (gasp!)? Here are our suggestions:

  • Add in another fruit, like bananas or blueberries.
  • Make a chunky berry sauce by reducing 1 cup of berries in 1/2 cup water with a few spoonfuls of honey.
  • Chocolate chips, of course!
  • Replace the blackberries with 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree and a teaspoon of cinnamon.

You can always add other things to the batter, as well. A tablespoon or two of cocoa powder would make rich chocolate pancakes. Diced apples would be a great addition in the autumn! Or, change up the honey you use to drizzle over the pancakes.
