Almond & Cashew Butter Blueberry Pancakes
Courtesy of Christine Fischer
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Yield: 1 large serving
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 tbsp baking powder, sifted
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup Bestie Almond & Cashew Butter plus more for drizzling
1/4 cup salted butter
2 large eggs
2 1/2 tbsps sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups skim milk
1 cup fresh blueberries (or more, if you’d like!)
cooking spray for greasing
fresh maple syrup for drizzling
crushed almonds and cashews to top (optional)
- In large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. In another mixing bowl combine the Bestie Almond & Cashew butter and salted butter, then microwave for 10 – 15 seconds until softened. Whisk the eggs, sugar, and vanilla into the butter mixture until smooth.
- In alternating doses slowly add the butter mixture and the milk to the dry ingredients until the batter takes shape – If there are some small lumps, that’s okay. Stir the blueberries into the batter.
- Heat a large skillet or flat griddle over a medium flame, then amply coat with cooking spray. Using a measuring cup, pour 1/3 cup of batter in the center of the hot pan/griddle, then gently spread out into a circle. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip and cook for 1-2 minutes more until golden. Repeat until all batter has been used.
- When ready, serve pancakes in stacks of 2 or 3 with drizzled Bestie Almond & Cashew butter, maple syrup, more blueberries, and crushed almonds/cashews, if desired.
