Tasty Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes with Honey Almond Buttermilk Syrup

These pancakes were so yummy, and healthy too. It was a fun Sunday morning breakfast to make for my family. They enjoyed them too. That always makes it nice. I loved the almond honey combo in the syrup. Buttermilk syrup is the only way to go. I have found it easy to make buttermilk on the spot by adding vinegar to the milk and letting it sit 5 to 10 min. (Sometimes I don't even let it sit that long, and it still works.) It is 1T vinegar per cup of milk. Here is another version of buttermilk syrup. Kefir can be used in place of the buttermilk too.

Ingredients: Makes about 10 pancakes

2 eggs
1 C buttermilk *(1 C milk 1 T vinegar)
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp baking powder
1 T honey
1 1/2 to 2 C *whole grain flour
fresh blueberries

Buttermilk syrup

3 T butter
1/2 C honey
1/2 C buttermilk *(1/2 C milk 2 tsp vinegar)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 t vanilla
2 tsp almond extract * optional (but so good!)


1. Beat eggs, and then add milk, vanilla, honey and oil. Set bowl aside.

2. In a separate bowl add flour, add baking powder stir together. Slowly stir into milk mixture. Do not over stir. *(Start with 1 1/2 C flour and then add more as needed. You don't want them too thick.)

3. Heat up griddle. Spray with non stick oil. When hot pour on pancakes. You can sprinkle on blueberries before you turn them over, or you can serve the blueberries sprinkled on top of the pancakes with the syrup.

4. While the pancakes are cooking, in a separate saucepan, on med. low heat pour in butter, buttermilk, and honey. Let the mixture come to a boil for 2 min. Take off the heat stir in baking soda, vanilla, and almond extract. Serve over warm pancakes.

* Flour 4 C spelt 2 C kamut 1 C brown rice 1 C buckwheat and 1 C oat groats. I grind a large amount, and then put extra in the fridge till I need the flour again.


  1. I've never tried buttermilk syrup before, but it sounds wonderful. Anything with almond extract in it is an automatic winner in my mind. Those pancakes look delicious, too.

  2. I am with you. I love almond extract. :)

  3. We love, love, love this syrup. Thanks for posting it.
