being cook: Blueberry Gluten-Free Pancakes

Had so much fun making these delicious + fluffy blueberry pancakes a couple weeks ago. I have shared the recipe below for your eating pleasure. I hope you have a marvelous time trying this recipe out! Good Luck + Happy Cooking! 

Prep Time: 10 minutes     Cook Time: 4 minutes per batch     Servings: 4 servings


1 1/4 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds (flaxseed meal)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup whole milk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanila extract
1 cup Driscoll's Blueberries
Maple syrup


Mix flour, sugar, ground flaxseeds, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl until well combined. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg, oil and vanilla. Whisk flour mixture into egg mixture just until combined. Fold in blueberries. Lightly grease a large nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat. Pour heaping 1/4 cup batter onto griddle. Cook about 3 minutes, or until edges are dry and the bottom is golden. Flip pancake and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until lightly golden. Adjust heat as needed to prevent burning. Place pancakes on a heatproof platter and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining batter. Drizzle with maple syrup to serve.
