For these delicious Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes, I start with my Buttermilk Pancakes, add gads of fresh blueberries and top them off with my Blueberry Syrup. This blueberry syrup has all real ingredients. It is simple to make, and super flavorful.

Fresh blueberries are the best, but not the only option. If you live where blueberries are plentiful and you pick them in season you can freeze them and use them later.

You can blueberries from the produce section at your local grocery store or from the frozen foods section. If you are not fortunate enough to have your own blueberry plants or a local farm where you can pick your own, you can always look at your local Farmers Market when they are in season.

Should I get farm eggs or store eggs?

Farm fresh eggs are the best, for this or any recipe, or to eat on their own. They are more nutrient dense and darker in color because of what the chickens are fed on smaller, local farms. On the smaller farms, they are usually more selective about what they feed their chickens.

Can I make my own buttermilk with milk and vinegar or lemon juice?

Homemade buttermilk is much thinner in consistency than real buttermilk, and it drastically affects the consistency of the batter. So for this recipe, use store-bought buttermilk.

Pancakes aren’t just for breakfast. They can be for any meal, and make a great Sunday brunch. I even love them for dinner!

You’ll want to make extra because these easy pancakes freeze well, so make a large batch and freeze between wax-paper sheets and then reheat in the microwave for a quick weekday breakfast!

I would hold off on the syrup until you are ready to eat them. The syrup also freezes well, so you just have to plan ahead and defrost it before you pop your pancakes in the microwave.

What else can I serve with Scratch Buttermilk Pancakes?

These Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes would go well with any breakfast meat especially Traeger Bacon, Traeger Smoked Ham, or sausage links (gotta have links with pancakes).

Scramble up some of those farm fresh eggs that you have on hand. You could even make up some Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs!

I would cut up some fruit, it’s almost summer, so I’m thinking strawberries, blackberries, and some melon.

Pin for later!
