+ Well Nourished ⎮Avocado and Blueberry Pancakes

Avocado and Blueberry Pancakes

Avocado blueberry pancakes

This is my latest recipe to feature on JamieOliver.com. I was asked to put a twist on Jamie’s simple One Cup Blueberry Pancakes – something simple to whip up for a fast, healthy breakfast.

These have become my kids favourite pancake which I’m glad about because they are super nutritious and really quick and easy to make. Even though they are not overly keen on avocado, they agree it adds a lovely texture to these pancakes.

Health benefits
Avocado has a unique nutrition profile if you take into consideration the fact that it contains a lot of fiber, vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin K, vitamin E, vitamin C and B-vitamins, potassium) as well as being a rich source of monounsaturated fats. The blueberries contribute protective antioxidants as well as having a pretty fabulous nutrient profile also.

Ingredients
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 medium sized avocado
¾ cup milk of your choice (cow or coconut)
1 tablespoon fat of your choice (butter, ghee or macadamia oil)
1 egg
½ teaspoon vanilla powder, essence or paste
1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
Fat to cook in (butter, ghee or macadamia oil)

Method

  1. In a blender or food processor, mix the cinnamon, avocado, milk and fat of your choice, egg and vanilla until well combined and smooth. Thermomix 30 second, speed 5.
  2. Add the spelt flour, baking soda and sea salt and mix until just combined. Thermomix 10 seconds, flour symbol.
  3. Lastly fold in the blueberries.
  4.  Heat the fat in a cast iron or non-stick pan over a moderate heat.
  5. Add the pancake batter to the pan and cook until the batter starts to bubble and the edges brown.
  6. Carefully flip and serve hot with maple syrup.

Variations
Gluten-free
Substitute the spelt for a gluten-free flour.

Dairy-free
Choose coconut milk and macadamia oil for your fat.

  • Hi Deb yes on both fronts – I’ve obviously not tested it but I can’t see why not G x

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“You have truly helped me and my family to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been referring to your page every few days, very inspiring, so thank you!” Emily

“Thank you very much for your awesome website & facebook page posts, you have motivated & inspired me heaps!” Fiona

“Just discovered your site 3 weeks ago, its been a great help with kids lunches for back to school, thanks so much!” Ange

“What a fantastic blog filled with so many great recipes and information!” Carla

“I just wanted to let you know that you have absolutely inspired me to a better way of eating, I’ve been making my shopping lists based on recipes you’ve shared and am educating my kids with the reasons behind different foods and why they are good etc! This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
