Blueberry Lemon Pancakes


Simple swaps make this breakfast favorite more diabetes friendly.


For the coulis:

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, washed and pat-dried
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice

Blend all ingredients in a food processor for approximately 2 minutes. Warm before use.

For the pancakes:

  • ½ cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg, freshly ground
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup egg substitute
  • ½ cup fat free buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon zest
  • ½ cup blueberries, washed and pat-dried


  1. Mix the flours, the baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg in a small bowl.
  2. Whisk the egg, egg substitute, buttermilk, vanilla, ricotta cheese and lemon zest in a medium bowl.
  3. Gently stir the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just mixed.
  4. Prepare a large skillet with vegetable spray and place over medium heat.
  5. Pour ⅓ cup of batter onto the skillet and add a few blueberries onto each pancake. Cook for 1½ - 2 minutes or until the edges appear brown. Flip and cook the other side for another 1½ minutes.
  6. Place 2 pancakes on each plate and serve with ⅓ cup of the warmed blueberry coulis.
Note: These are quite hearty pancakes and very filling. You can easily double the milk and make thinner, less cake-like pancakes.
