Blueberry Vanilla Bean Pancakes with Blueberry Glaze

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 23, 2011

Our weekday mornings usually go a little something like this.

We awake to alarm clock #1.

IMG_7892

It’s Sketchie and he’s impatient. He’s been awake prowling the house since who knows when.

I look at the clock and it’s 5:43am.

Meeeeeeeoooooowwwwwwww! Meowwwww. Feed meeeee-ow. Wake up. Meow. Meow. Meow. Meowwwwwww.

IMG_7896

‘Sketchie!!!’

Meow….

Somehow I manage to get a half hour of “quality sleep” until the alarm goes off. I’m happy Sketchie didn’t win.

When the alarm goes off, suddenly, Sketchie is back. This time, he’s kneading my belly like a hunk of pizza dough. It tickles and I laugh like the Pillsbury Doughboy. Sometimes he gets a little carried away and his nails go through the comforter and prick my skin.

I feel loved.

When I come out of the bathroom, I drag Eric out of bed. This always takes a few attempts!

Sketchie and I walk downstairs. He purrs so soft this time and brushes against my leg the whole way down, pretending like his intrusive wake-up call never happened.

I forgive him.

After feeding Sketchie, I challenge myself to make the strongest cup of green tea in the world.

I usually win.

I pour a large, unknown quantity of tea leaves into my Bodum loose leaf tea pot and then add a few more for good measure. As it steeps, I head outside to water the garden, anxiously waiting my tea.

By the time I come back in, Eric is enjoying a huge bowl of spelt flakes, raisins, and chia seeds. He eats it in record time and then he spends about 6 hours brushing the chia seeds out of his teeth.

I pour my tea into a travel mug and we fly out the door to drive to the train station. We’re usually always running late and we arrive 60 seconds before it departs. A quick kiss and we part ways.

On this weekday morning, however, things went a bit differently!

IMG_7839

I found out that Eric was working from home today, so I told Eric I would make our favourite breakfast…pancakes!

IMG_7838

I made my usual crazy pancake stacks, this time adding a fun blueberry-vanilla bean twist. (You can check out all my pancake stack recipes here). And did they ever turn out incredible!

IMG_7843

IMG_7842

I had a bunch of blueberries to use up so I threw a cup of them in the batter and then used the rest to make this delicious blueberry glaze.

IMG_7857

To make the glaze, I processed 3/4 cup blueberries with 1 banana. We both really loved it as an alternative to maple syrup!

IMG_7847-2

I love this pancake recipe because it’s made with 100% whole wheat flour and the pancakes are very fluffy and thick. The blueberries were just oozing out of them!

IMG_7855

Sketchie is also a happy cat today.

One of Sketchie’s favourite things in the world is when Eric works from home. He loves to jump up on Eric’s lap to sleep for the afternoon or use his laptop as a butt warmer when he leaves his station. ;)

Have yourself a great Thursday!

I was seriously just thinking of what kind of pancakes I can make for breakfast these look great with a few gluten free adaptations I cant wait to try them :)

Next time I might try and make them with teff flour or buckwheat…hope it works!

i am just exploring the wonders of teff flour…used them in gingerbread waffles yesterday instead of one of the cups of flour, and works brilliantly…the nutritional profile of teff is amazing and i can make things for my daughter’s best friend who is gluten intolerant

Sketchie is adorable! What bit eyes he has. So cute.

I never seem to make pancakes because they always seem like they’ll take too long, but when they’re made, they’re so delicious. Thanks for the recipe with this fun twist!

Oh that last shot of Sketchie’s booty on Eric’s computer…classic. Nothing like a keyboard warmer for a cat. lol

The pancakes…with the bananas layered in….AMAZING! And I am loving the yellow plates/ yellow accent colors with the blue in the pancakes…super eye-catching! I need more blog linens when I see pics like this…I have one major color family of dishes and linens: pink. <—real versatile, huh :)

Your husband definitely got lucky marrying you! I haven’t had pancakes in a while. I have a GF mix that I’ve been meaning to try, but I usually prefer to make pancakes from scratch. I think you should create a GF pancake recipe that looks as good as these do! :)

Love the Sketchie photos! My kittens area also my alarm clock but they are not as nice as Sketchie! They’ve learned to just keep walking up and down my body, stepping on my throat until I wake up coughing!

Those pancakes look amazing! I’m not really a pancake person so I’ve never tried one of your pancake stack recipes…but this one is tempting. I’m surprised though, no nut butter?! :O

Our cat usually wakes me up the same way, and brushes against my legs while I try to make the strongest pot of coffee (some mornings this brushing against my legs totally freaks me out – weird).

I used to love the occasional breakfast with my husband as they didn’t happen too often. Now with his new job, we have breakfast at the same time each morning. Usually something totally different, but it’s nice. Not as special though…

when i make pancakes i love to mash a cold banana on top instead of syrup, or use applesauce and cinnamon. this glaze sounds so good! mmm pancakes. just finished my oats and now i’m hungry again. that usually happens when i read your blog though… hehe

I love mashed banana on top of pancakes…This is basically the same effect only with blueberries added in. :)

Mary (What's Cookin' with Mary) June 23, 2011 at 10:11 am

I have the same alarm clock ! We acutally got into this bad habbit of getting up and feeding her when she’d wake us and that ‘first alarm clock’ got earlier and earlier… Something had to be done when that time was around 5am and earlier. (Plus the third alarm after our ‘real’ alarm goes off.) She now gets fed every morning at 9 which helps… It was SO HARD getting her to stop, but so worth it. hehe This morning my wake up call was at 6:30… not bad, right ? ;)

Reply

OMG! Those pancakes looks so delicious. I just love how you use all whole foods in all your recipes. They look so good, are gorgeous and I know are bursting at the seams with vitamins and minerals and excellence for the body. And, from the ones I have tried, are yummers in the tummers. I MUST try these pancakes. I am trying to convince my friends to have a ‘breakfast party’ just so I have an excuse to make a huge batch of your strawberry (or maybe now, blueberry?) pancakes.

The blueberry glaze looks wonderful, I think I’d do soft serve instead though, as I love that frozen banana taste.

Angela – I just made whole wheat blueberry pancakes myself last week! http://fitandsplendor.com/2011/06/13/whole-wheat-blueberry-pancakes/

But, I absolutely love the idea of the blueberry / banana glaze topping. Definitely a better alternative to maple syrup.

Reply

Beth (Well I'll Be) June 23, 2011 at 10:48 am

I love the idea of using the blueberry/banana puree instead of maple syrup. I love syrup but sometimes it’s a little too sweet for breakfast. This looks like it’d be perfect!

Ashley M. [at] (never home)maker June 23, 2011 at 10:51 am

Your cat is beautiful. And I would have loved these pancakes anyway — because Stephen and I are huge fans of pancakes — BUT that glaze puts them over-the-top. Would you believe I’ve never actually used vanilla bean . . . only extract . . . in all my baking? Maybe it’s time for a trip to the store.

Aren’t cats the BEST????? I didn’t like ’em until I inherited a tabby from an old room mate MANY years ago. That tabby (Raleigh) and I were together for 16 years (we lost him last year :( ) but he added SO much to our home, much like Sketchie does to yours. Now we have Neva. Who is beautiful. And naughty. And we love her to pieces and can’t imagine our life without her. Thanks for sharing more great recipes and photos of your beautiful kitty! Have a great day.

Ah! I know what I’m making Hubby for our anniversary and his birthday! He LOVEs blueberries. And if they’re in/on healthy stacks of pancakes, even better.

My cats start calling at 5am ish as well. I try to ignore them, but when a 15lbs fuzzball decides to sit on your chest and lick at your face, it’s rather hard to.

I call it making muffins when the cats kneed. I always feel loved, annoyed, but loved. I have no time and a black thumb so my dad is growing veggies for me this year. I love going over to cut kale leaves off. I like to cut them nice and small and tender – AMAZING.

So funny! We have the same alarm clock. She starts outside our door around 5:30 and gets louder if we don’t answer. Then she is back the second our ‘real’ alarm goes off and once the door opens she is jumping on the bed ready to love!

My cat has gotten pretty darn good at simulating my alarm with his meow. He comes and sits on my chest and purrs and meows like an alarm clock. Then we do the walk downstairs so he can have his breakfast. Funny thing is, he then does the same thing to my husband who gets up an hour after me. He thinks he is so sneaky and thinks he will get a second breakfast!

Sketchie is honestly one of the most beautiful cats I’ve ever seen! His eyes are gorgeous, and his fur is so shiny and pretty. And your pancakes are just as gorgeous. I love looking at pictures of perfectly fluffy stacks of pancakes and that glaze sounds incredible!

Angela, this may come out sounding a little weird, but I really want to come live with you, and eat all your delicious eats. Is that cool??

In all seriousness, these look absolutely divine!

I would sit around and dote on how brilliant these are, but I have Blueberry Vanilla Bean Stacked Pancakes with Blueberry Glaze to make. (Thank you, Angela, so very, very much.)

I keep meaning to tell you about New Zealand spinach: it’s what my mum grows in her alotment garden and it is AWESOME spinach. And it does very well, seeds itself, no bugs or problems, so maybe for next year’s spinach? Look it up, I’m not sure if the seeds are sold everywhere. I had some in a GM last year and it was delish.

You crank out recipes in no time! Not that I’m complaining ;)
Don’t you need a frozen banana + maybe frozen blueberries?

Angela June 23, 2011 at 2:24 pm

That first photo is what I wake up every morning. It’s sometimes a bit of a shock to open your eyes and have a little cat face staring back at you! Have you seen the Simon’s Cat video ‘Cat Man Do’? It’s something that every cat owner can relate to.

Emily June 23, 2011 at 2:46 pm

HAHAHA those pictures of your cat are hysterical!
And the pancakes look so flippin sweet.
Reading all the amazing recipes you come up with, I’m tempted to switch back to being vegan again!

I love your website, Angela, but I have one problem. I can’t have bananas, and you put it in every green monster, this pancake sauce, etc. Do you have any suggestions for substitutes, particularly for the green monster?

Reply

Lauren June 23, 2011 at 4:12 pm

I second this! I wish i could make some of your recipes but the banana always stops me!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) June 23, 2011 at 5:29 pm

Why not try other sweet fruits? Mango, pineapple, and cantaloupe are all awesome in a GM! :) As are cherries.

As for other recipes, sometimes I see people substitute applesauce for banana puree, but of course, it would depend on the recipe.

Yogurt — (I use non-dairy rice yogurt or almond yogurt, like Ricera or Almande) — also makes a good banana substitute (sweet thickener), in my experience.

Reply

DG June 24, 2011 at 11:36 am

Thanks! I guess if you ever make a GM without banana and feel like sharing a successful recipe, that would be great. :)

I love your site! I have always been a veggie lover, but in November I suddenly was unable to eat dairy. Forcing our little family of a now 2 year old and a meat and potato man to eat what I adapted from recipes and cooked. :) Happily since I found your site about 3 weeks ago I have made at least 10 of your wonderful recipes and everyone is happy! THANK YOU! and keep it up!

I’ve missed Sketchie posts on here, glad to see he made his way into this post! But seriously, what are we supposed to do about our cat alarm clocks? I think I might try locking my cat (Jelly) into the bathroom if he wakes me up at 5:30. Even then, he’ll just meow until we let him out. No sleep for the weary.

Arielle June 24, 2011 at 8:37 am

Oh wow, those looks great! I love making pancakes, had them this morning, in fact. I’ll have to make those next week, but I think I’ll use blackberries since I’ve got a ton of those right now.

LOVE the pancake recipe! I tried it the day after you posted it, the fruit is a GREAT substitute for pancake syrup! Since making this I’ve started seeing what else works great in the food processor: This morning–strawberries and banana for a bagel topping!

Hi Angela,

Love the blog! I just started drinking green tea and I’d like to know what brand name your brewer is and where you bought it. I’m in Canada but having a bit of trouble finding one. Here in Nova Scotia everyone is very adament on their bagged black tea :p
