  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.

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.

Good taste, easy to make pancakes.
