Lemon + Blueberry = LOVE
This is one of those recipes that I voluntarily tested like 4 times BECAUSE IT IS THAT GOOD. Man I could seriously eat these pancakes 3 times a day for a whole week and not get tired of them! Lemon + blueberry has seriously been my jam lately. That flavor combination is the epitome of Spring.
Pancakes in a Blender?!
So…FFF has lots of pancake recipes and we wanted to make this one extra special. Insert: the blender!
Before we develop a new recipe on FFF we discuss how we can:
- dirty the least amount of bowls as possible
- cook it as fast as possible
- make it as healthy as possible.
This recipe literally dirties 2 things: a blender and a skillet. PANCAKES IN A BLENDER…MIND BLOWING. We promise you’ll love it.
How to Make Lemon Blueberry Pancakes
You literally throw all of the ingredients into the blender and whirl away. The coolest part about this recipe is that the blueberries turn the batter BLUE! I’m like a child when it comes to colored food. Once again…MIND BLOWING.
To get the amazing lemon blueberry flavor in this recipe we used fresh blueberries (but frozen bluebs will also work!) and a combination of lemon extract and lemon zest. Num num num. Don’t skimp on the lemon zest…so good!
And because this recipe makes 16 pancakes, you may need to save some for later, so we’re also showing you how to freeze and reheat these breakfast beauties below 🙂
- First, let your pancakes cool completely. The reason we do this is so that the pancakes can come down to room temperature and stop producing so much moisture (steam). This will prevent freezer burn in the freezer.
- Then, stack 1 serving of pancakes (2 pancakes) together. Tightly wrap them in a piece of plastic wrap or a Ziploc bag. Make sure to remove as much air as possible (this is also to prevent freezer burn).
- Place pancakes in the freezer and freeze for up to 3 months. Make sure to write the type of pancakes and the date you’re freezing them on the outside of the bag or plastic wrap!
- Option 1: Thaw lemon blueberry pancakes in the refrigerator overnight. Then, microwave for 60 seconds in the morning.
- Option 2: Place frozen pancakes directly in the toaster and toast on medium until warm all the way through.

Blender Lemon Blueberry Pancakes
- 1.5 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1 cup fresh blueberries or thawed from frozen
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- 1 medium banana
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup unsweetened, plain almond milk
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon lemon extract
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
- Place blueberries, banana, eggs, vanilla extract, unsweetened almond milk, honey, and lemon extract in a high-speed blender. Blend on high until smooth.
- Add in the rest of the dry ingredients and blend on high until smooth. Finally, add melted coconut oil and blend until smooth. At this point, your mixture should be thick, but thin enough to pour into pancakes. If it's too thick, add a splash more almond milk.
- Turn a skillet to medium heat and spray with coconut oil cooking spray. Using a 1/4 cup scoop, pour batter onto skillet. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbles start to form on your pancakes. Flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
- Serve immediately with your favorite pancake toppings!
I just made a gluten-free version of it and it was amazing! At first, I was skeptical about the lemon zest and 3Tbspn of coconut oil but it turned out to be really juicy, soft, and flavorful. Next time I will add even more lemon zest. Thank you for this recipe. Will do it again.
Lemon zest is life.
Can I use frozen blueberries instead of fresh?
Would lemon juice work in place of the extract or not so much?
Hmmmm that might give your pancakes a bit of a sour taste. You could just up the lemon zest!
Can you use almond flour instead?
Unfortunately that does not convert to a 1:1 ratio!
This looks great! Can I replace Coconut Oil with something?
Any kind of oil should work!
Would you be able to use unsweetened applesauce instead of a banana?
Hey Tiffany! That would likely work, but might not be sweet enough! You could try adding more honey to balance it out.
My favorite almond milk as well. Great recipe. Can I substitute gluten free flour?
I haven’t tried it myself, but I don’t see why not! Just make sure you are using a gluten free flour BLEND (I like the one from TJ’s!).
I made these for breakfast this morning. They were fluffy, blue perfection on a plate. You are a magician!
LOL. I can’t wait to try this recipe with strawberries or raspberries to see if I can make them PINK!
Hello these look freaking perfect! Love that you threw everything in the blender including the blueberries. Now I want pancakes.
CUZ BLUE PANCAKES ARE LIFE.
Aren’t blenders magical? I love the concept of throwing everything in it and getting a perfect concoction of blueberry-lemony goodness!
THEY ARE MAGIC.
What is the white stuff on top? it looks so good, how do we make that?
It’s actually just vanilla Greek yogurt 🙂
Thank you! I am making them now, but I used
coconut flour instead
Wow, these sound delicious! I love the combination of blueberries and lemon juice! So fresh and delightful for spring! And pancakes for Sunday? WIN!
YES YES AND YES. Sunday pancakes are an absolute staple in my house!
