Blueberry Pie Pancakes – SUPER ginormous fluffy blueberry pancakes recipe… with over 200 positive reader reviews!

Blueberry Pie Pancakes Recipe

Pleasantly Plump.

One might use these words to describe the blueberries I recently purchased at Whole Foods. I’m always excited when summer rolls around and organic blueberries no longer cost an arm and a leg. And a pinky toe. Sadly, the lower prices don’t last forever, and I therefore make it my mission to eat as many blueberries as humanly possible while they’re available!

Here’s one of my favorites: Healthy Blueberry Muffins – soy-free / dairy-free / egg-free.

Today, however, I wasn’t feeling the muffin vibe. And so I spent the entirety of my run dreaming up new ways to incorporate blueberries into breakfast. Finally, I settled upon blueberry pie pancakes. Just think about it for a second… blueberry pie in pancake form. How could you possibly top that?!

  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup flour (ww pastry, white, spelt, or Bob’s gluten-free)
  • 2 tbsp rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp sugar or 1 packet stevia
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • Unless you like the taste of fat-free pancakes, add 1 tbsp oil and reduce milk by that amount.
Total Time: 10m
Yield: serves 1 person


Combine dry ingredients in a bowl, then add wet. Mix, but don’t overmix. Cook on an oiled (or sprayed) pan, on low-medium, flipping each pancake once. Top with syrup, powdered sugar, or Cashew Cream. Or you could even boil some more blueberries (with a bit of sugar, if you wish), and smash them, to make a compote.

Edit: Although I had not yet started including nutrition facts at the time of this post, the stats for this recipe should be pretty similar to the nutrition facts for my Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes.

  1. Blueberries are my fave! Especially in pancake form. And these look especially AWESOME!

  2. *Drool* LOVE fat pancakes. LOVE blueberries. LOVE CCK!! <3

    Blueberries in Blueberry Muffins!! But Blueberry Pie Pancakes sound EVEN BETTER!! 😀

    1. P.S. Did your running faster thing workout?! Did the pancakes work as rocket fuel motivation? Works for me every Sunday! 😛

      1. LOL yes it actually did! I was a full minute faster than usual! Still not as fast as you, but fast for me ;).

    dang, it’s still chilly where we are and blueberries do indeed cost and arm, a leg, a pinky toe… and my whole wallet! I love blueberries- frozen, plain, with non-dairy milk, on cereal, in pancakes. When I’m at my grandma’s house in the summer, I get to gorge off of her many blueberry bushes– that produce the plumpest, most flavorful berries you’ve ever tasted!

    I love making frosting-like toppings (that are still healthy) for my pancakes, too.

    1. Oh you’re so lucky! My uncle used to have raspberry bushes… so incredible! I wish he still had them :(.

  4. I LOVE BLUEBERRIES and pancakes with thick waistlines! But they cost a fortune where I live all year round. Sadly. But nothing’s going to stop me from having these pancakes!!!!!
    Note to self: need to invest in blueberries! 😀

  5. Andrea says:

    Have you ever tried freezing blueberries? They are a good value this time of year, and you can often get heaps of them at the farmers market or pick your own farms for a great price! All you have to do is wash them, pat dry, spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet, stick ’em in the freezer til they’re frozen (overnight will suffice), then put them in freezer bags until you need them! I love a bowl of frozen blueberries as a cool summer snack! Waaaay better than popsicles.

    1. Oh yes! I have like five pints in my freezer right now! Stocking up while I can! 🙂

    2. Jan says:

      Actually, blueberries freeze better if you do not wash first…just put in the freezer and then wash them when you use them. I get some every year. I do the same with raspberries from the Farmers Market..


  6. Jenny says:

    hmphhhh.. this recipe is almost identical to the one that I use, yet I can’t ever get mine that fat! perhaps I need to up the baking powder?! I guess I just don’t have your magic touch 😉

    1. Yes, baking powder helps… but the REAL secret I’ve found is to use less liquid. If you use only *just enough* to make the pancakes like muffin batter consistency, they’ll cook much poofier! And boo, my spellchecker says poofier isn’t a word. Oh well.

      1. Connie says:

        LOL, “Poofier” would probably also be described as a “Flapjack” because of it’s thick batter consistency, and a pancake is a much thinner batter, making it “Flat”. 🙂

        Either way they are described, these look fantastic too and they will be a piece of “pancake” to make this coming weekend.

        1. Helen says:

          When I was growing up(many years ago on the farm) My mother cooked pancakes every morning. I didn’t like them that often but my father wanted them. I guess it filled him up and lasted longer for his hard work he had to do for the day. Actually I liked the thinner kind). One time he ordered a case of breakfast cereal (Cornflakes which did give us a change for awhile. My father also made maple syrup every fall also which goes SO well with pancakes.

        How many calories r in the recipe

    2. Tabitha says:

      I like fat pancakes, too! Some people like a thinner pancake…but that has no purpose for me. Pancakes should be FLUFFY and PUFFY!

  7. Crafty lil vegan says:

    These yummies look like blueberry versions of welshcakes!! Except to make them welshcakes, you have to cook them on a traditional bake-stone (think of large slab of metal you place on a hob XD ) … though a frying pan is definately easier! I shall have to give these a go =D xxxx

  8. Emily K says:

    Your photos continue to astound me. I cannot get over that first picture, with the gorgeous purple blueberries! Stunning! 🙂
    And yes, I love blueberries in the summer. The fatter the better!

    1. Ellie says:

      Agree 100%!

  9. I LOVE BLUEBERRIES but like you only eat them when they are in season and on sale 🙂 I love them in muffins, pancakes, smoothies, and even just by themselves the way nature intended them to be!!!

  10. I LOVE pancakes!! and fat ones at that!! bloobs pancakers are my fave! oh also choc chip… tough decision!

  11. Gen says:

    Yummy!!!!! That looks amazing!

  12. Jenny says:

    Blueberries are hands down the best, most delicious berry EVER. I don’t care what anyone says about acai berries, or any of those superfood berries… Blueberries are accessible and out-of-this-world delicious.

    My favourite way to use them is actually not to use them at all! I love eating ’em straight up. I suppose my second favourite way of using them is incorporating them into yogurt bowls. I prefer eating fresh bloobs straight up and baking with frozen bloobs instead. Somehow I feel like their amazing taste doesn’t go to “waste” then, even though baked goods with fresh bloobs are probably tastier? Not sure~

    1. Ellie says:

      My favorite way is straight up too :). Or in a smoothie! I love the color it turns smoothies!

  13. Katie!! i seriously did a happy dance when i saw this one! i have a love affair with pancakes and the fatter the better!! i’m a big fan of blueberries and will take them any whichway but in muffins would probably rate really high along with in pancakes of course. also, thank you for keeping today at least PB-free. 🙂 don’t worry, we won’t take over your blog, but when we rule the world we’ll be sure to keep you safe. jk

  14. Tricia says:

    I love blueberries in muffins and oatmeal and… By themselves 🙂

  15. Holy MACKEREL those are portly pancakes! But man do they look good.

    We have a tradition of pancake Saturday at my home, and if these aren’t on the agenda this week, I will cry tears in the shape of a sad blueberry.

    1. Ellie says:

      Then you could eat your tears! Free blueberries! 🙂

  16. Veronica says:

    Miss Katie, there is a huge glaring omission here that I can not abide! How do these taste? Did you love them? Based on the ingredients and photo, I would say they must be delicious but I need a descritpion of the taste, woman! 🙂

    1. Already planning to have them again on Sunday! Does that answer your question?
      Hey, they had COCONUT butter on them; how bad could they be? 😉

      1. Zach Henning says:

        Can you use this batter to make waffles with?? I would love to know!

        P.S. made the pancakes this morning and they were awesome!!!

        1. I haven’ tried. Some commenters say you can. It’s just a bit sticky, so be sure to grease the iron well.

  17. So fluffy! I love blueberry pancakes.. I love your recipes.. so combining the two is always a must!

  18. kate says:

    These look so delicious I love that theyre so simple too!

  19. katie says:
