Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted, plus more for skillet and serving
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Maple syrup, for serving

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, flaxseed, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add buttermilk, egg, and butter and whisk until just moistened (batter should have some lumps; do not overmix). Fold in blueberries.

  2. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with butter and heat over medium-high. In batches, drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into skillet. Cook until bubbles appear on top and a few have burst, 2 to 5 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until golden brown, 2 to 5 minutes. Repeat with more butter and remaining batter (makes about 12), wiping skillet clean between batches and lowering heat if necessary. Serve with butter and syrup.
