These blueberry kefir pancakes are a wholesome and healthier breakfast option. Planning a brunch or wanting something special for Mom this Mother's Day? These pancakes are light and fluffy, easy to make and have a strong and beautiful blueberry taste. 


  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups Nancy's Organic Whole Milk Blueberry Kefir
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter, melted, or sub vegan butter or coconut oil for non-dairy option
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries


  • Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add sugar and pinch of salt. 
  • Stir in blueberry kefir, the egg, vanilla, and melted butter. 
  • Heat a large fry pan over medium to high heat. Add half a tablespoon of butter (or coconut oil) and melt. Once hot, use a paper towel to wipe out the butter. This will help prevent burning. 
  • Reduce heat to medium and add another half tablespoon of butter. 
  • Take about a 1/3 of a cup of pancake batter and place in the centre of your frying pan, spreading out to create a pancake that is around 5"/12cm in diameter. 
  • Top with about 4-5 fresh blueberries. 
  • Cook on one side, for around 3-4 minutes, or until bubbles start to appear on the surface. Flip and repeat. 
  • Continue until pancake batter is finished. Every second pancake, reapply a small amount of butter to avoid sticking. 
  • To keep pancakes warm, heat oven to 170F/75C and stack each cooked pancake on a heatproof plate. Place in oven until you are ready to serve to guarantee toasty and warm pancakes! 
  • Serve with plain yogurt, extra blueberries and maple syrup.
