  • Using a hand blender or a whisk, prepare the batter by combining pancake mix, eggs, lactose-free milk, salt, and zest of half a lemon. Continue mixing until the batter is smooth.
  • In a pan, heat olive oil and add a scoop of the batter once the pan is hot. Make sure not to make the pancakes too thick. Add blueberries on top of the batter.
  • Fry the pancakes until cooked – approximately 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining batter and berries.
  • Divide the pancakes between plates, fold them carefully into quarters and sprinkle additional blueberries on top.
  • Serve with a scoop of lactose-free vanilla yogurt, top with lemon zest, and, if desired, honey, and crushed almonds.

Although cooking pancakes is simple, finding the right temperature for the pan can require some adjustments. Start with medium heat, and adjust it as needed. You can also test it by adding a small amount of the batter to the pan. And remember – the first pancake is rarely perfect.

Should I use fresh or frozen blueberries for lactose-free blueberry pancakes?
Fresh blueberries are ideal for making pancakes, as they provide a delicious burst of flavour and sweetness. They will also hold their shape better during cooking, making them a great addition to the batter. However, for the blueberries used in the batter, you can also use frozen berries, although these might give off more liquid than fresh ones.
What to serve with lactose-free blueberry pancakes?
Serve the lactose-free blueberry alongside lusciously creamy and mildly tart lactose-free vanilla yoghurt. Topping the pancakes with a few extra fresh blueberries will add more sweetness and texture that pairs perfectly with the soft pancakes and creamy yoghurt. For an indulgent finishing touch, a drizzle of sweet honey, a pinch of tangy lemon zest, and some crunchy crushed almonds are sure to please anybody.
Can you freeze lactose-free blueberry pancakes?
Yes, freezing them is easy, and it allows you to enjoy a lactose-free blueberry pancake – or three – whenever you want. Let them cool, place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and put them in the freezer. This will prevent them from sticking together. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe container or bag. You can freeze them for up to 2-3 months. Let them thaw overnight in the fridge, then reheat them in the microwave or oven.

Serve your blueberry pancakes with lactose-free vanilla yogurt

Biting into a soft blueberry pancake is pure morning bliss. But serving it with delicious lactose-free vanilla yogurt will make the breakfast seem almost dessert-like. This yogurt is creamy and tangy, with a slight sweetness and vanilla aroma that pairs well with the blueberries. It adds a rich creaminess to the fluffy pancakes.

Lemon zest offers a bright citrus note, cutting through the sweetness of the blueberries and yogurt. For more sweetness, a drizzle of honey will add an aromatic note that ties everything together by complementing the tartness of the yogurt and the acidity of the lemon. Crushed almonds on top lend a nutty crunch, acting as a counterpoint to the softness of the pancakes and the creaminess of the yogurt.
