Einkorn Blueberry Pancake Bars

20161025_094034.jpg

 

On the blog today is a recipe that has become a family favorite in our house!!! I have to be honest, I was kind of surprised… you see, I have been working on incorporating Einkorn into our regular diet, but einkorn has a kind of learning curve, as it behaves differently  than modern wheat, etc… (more on that later!) Anyways, back to my story, during the week I try to do breakfast meals for our children that have as little sugar in them as possible, although this does not include naturally occuring fruit sugars, and I came across the original recipe HERE for these bars while searching Pinterest for inspiration. I made them once, and the hubby even tried them, and they were so simple and easy, and such a hit that I made them again and doubled the recipe, and hubby even stopped in his tracks and came back to get some on his way out the door to work, so I knew they must be pretty good!

Anyways, on to the recipe…all of my ingredients are double what the original recipe calls for, because they go so stinking fast in our house, but you can easily split it in half if you would like a smaller portion, but weirdly the cooking time stays the same…

 

EINKORN BLUEBERRY BUTTERMILK PANCAKES

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

4 Tbsp melted butter

2 eggs

6 Tbsp coconut sugar (can use any type of sugar or even honey, just use a little less milk)

2 cups Einkorn flour

4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

 

  1. Set oven to 350F.
  2. Mix the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter together in a bowl. Iif you do not have buttermilk, you can make your own by putting 1 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar in a 1 cup measure and filling the rest with milk. Just allow it to sit for 5- 10 min to thicken a little.)
  3. 3. Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate mixing bowl.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing until all is combined, it will look pretty runny (see picture 1. below)
  5. Allow mixture to sit for about 5 min, you will see a visible rise in the bowl (see picture 2 below)
  6. Gently fold in blueberries, if using frozen, keep them in freezer until you are ready to add to the mixture.
  7. Spread into a greased 9×13 baking pan.(Picture 3 below)
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, and the edge are a little browned.
  9. Allow to cool for a few minutes, and enjoy warm

I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as mine does! I will be posting links soon to share my sources for the cheapest whole grain Einkorn I have found thus far! Thanks for stopping by!
