GF: Buttermilk Blueberry Sorghum flour Pancakes

Hello fellow travellers,

I do realize the name for this recipe is rather a mouthful! But so are these wholesome pancakes. Delicious, light, and gluten free.


Stack o’ Pancakes

I was just experimenting with gluten free flour and decided to whip up a batch of these to see how it would go. They were not as fluffy (though they were soft and moist) as I wanted but I think that might be because of the baking soda I put in. Anyways, I’m kind of obsessed these days with pancakes for breakfast. These are amazing with a healthy dolop of maple syrup (I would suggest Shady Maple Farms syrup because its organic and 100% maple – none of that Aunt Jemima high fructose corn syrup stuff).


Bite o’ pancake


1 cup buttermilk (I made my own – I used a little less than a cup of milk and 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice)

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup Sorghum flour +  a little more

2 tsp coconut sugar

3 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup blueberries

How to assemble:

  1. To make the buttermilk, add almost one cup of milk in a large bowl and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Leave for 5 minutes. Whisk in egg and vanilla.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda. Incorporate flour slowly into egg/butter milk mixture. Fold in blueberries or you can also just add them into the top of the pancake while on the griddle.
  3. Heat griddle on medium heat and add butter/coconut oil (around 1 tbsp or so). Scoop pancake batter with 1/4 cup and place on griddle. Cook for few minutes each side. You will know when to flip when you see bubbles appear on the top side.

Note: Initially the batter got a bit thin on me so I had to add a little bit more sorghum flour. Make sure the batter is not thin and soupy otherwise you will get crepes. It should be a nice firm batter that is pourable.

Edit: Thanks to some reviewers who caught the typo with the baking soda. It is supposed to be baking powder!

You can serve with many things: maple syrup, honey, fruits, or whip cream. Enjoy!
