  1. Whisk egg and 2 tablespoons canola oil together in a bowl. Add buttermilk; whisk to combine. Mix flour, flax meal, baking powder, and sugar together in a separate bowl. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture; stir to combine.
  2. Heat about 2 teaspoons canola oil in a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into heated oil. Sprinkle a few blueberries into the wet batter. Cook until pancakes are evenly browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining batter and blueberries.

  • Cook's Note:
  • If the batter is too thick, add a little more milk to thin it out. Make sure your skillet is hot before cooking. I use an ice cream scoop to scoop batter onto skillet so the pancakes are even in size.

Good taste, easy to make pancakes.

The batter definitely needs to rest for at least 5 minutes or you will have flat, thin pancakes. I ate the first pancake and the flavor was like flour. I added a little vanilla and cinnamon and the flavor was palatable. We smothered them in homemade strawberry syrup (thank you Chef John!). I was disappointed because I am trying spelt flour out on my family and was looking for some good recipes. This was not one of them. I'll try a different recipe next time.
