Gluten-free Blueberry Pancakes with Berrylicious Sauce

I can’t live without blueberry pancakes. Especially when we can enjoy them in 15 minutes. These babies are healthy, grain-free, quick, and scrumptious. As you probably know, I’m very fond of coconut butter, which gives a luscious, low-carb richness without  chemicals, flour, or gluten. Hooray! Blueberry pancakes taste even better with easy Berrylicious Sauce.

BTW, leftover pancakes freeze well in a resealable bag with parchment paper between the layers. Pull them out when needed and heat briefly in a pan for an instant breakfast or snack. Making these pancakes in a food processor is quicker, but it’s not required – you can just stir by hand. Yield: 12 pancakes. Serves 4 humans.

Gluten-free Blueberry Pancakes with Berrylicious Sauce



  • 1/2 cup almond meal or flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon unprocessed salt
  • 1/2 cup softened coconut butter, or 113 grams if hard. (If mixing by hand, soften butter by placing the container in a bowl of warm water.)
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon unfiltered apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk or a bit more if needed
  • Sweeten to taste with about 1/3 cup Just Like Sugar Table Top natural chicory root sweetener, or 1 tablespoon PureLo Lo Han Sweetener by Swanson, or 1/4 cup raw honey, or your favorite sweetener.
  • 1 cup blueberries, frozen for 1 hour if possible


  1. Prepare Berrylicious Sauce and your favorite pancake toppings. Get out a large nonstick skillet or griddle.
  2. In a food processor or mixing bowl, add the almond meal, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Add coconut butter and mix to a thick paste.
  3. Add to the mixture: eggs, vanilla, vinegar, and coconut milk. Process briefly. Slightly lumpy batter is no problem. Add sweetener to taste, and mix again. Add frozen blueberries to the batter and stir them in with a rubber spatula so they stay whole. The batter should be thick and pourable. To thin it, stir a bit more coconut milk until it is barely pourable.
  4. Use a wadded paper towel to lightly grease a large nonstick skillet or griddle with coconut oil. Heat the pan on medium-high heat until a drop of water sizzles when flicked onto the pan. Then you know it is ready.
  5. For each pancake, use a scant 1/4 cup measure to pour 3 tablespoons of batter onto skillet. You should be able to fit two to three pancakes in a large skillet.
  6. Cook on the first side 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side until browned, 1 to 2 minutes more. If they’re delicate, use two spatulas to flip. Place finished pancakes on a serving plate covered with a towel. Repeat until all the batter is cooked. Serve with fruit and your favorite syrup or toppings.

    I’ve read about blueberries causing some of the same problems as nightshades.

    Have you had any experience with that?

      Hi Jolene, No, I have not heard that. Where did you read it? Best wishes! Jane
