  1. Whisk buttermilk, egg, maple syrup, and coconut oil together in a bowl.
  2. Whisk spelt flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add blueberries and toss gently to coat.
  3. Stir buttermilk mixture into the spelt flour mixture until just combined.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled skillet over medium-high heat. Drop 1/4 cup batter into the skillet and cook until bubbles begin to form, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • To make these gluten-free, use 1 cup gluten-free oat flour instead of the spelt flour.
  • Substitute raspberries or strawberries for the blueberries if desired.

These pancakes are delicious! Whole spelt flour does beautifully in pancakes. These are not very sweet... because I like to eat pancakes plain as a snack, I may increase the amount of sweetener ...

I LOVE these pancakes. They are fluffy and moist. I don't feel heavy after eating them either. They are very easy to make.

Truly excellent! I doubled the cinnamon and as a buttermilk substitution, had to add 1 tbsp. white vinegar to whole milk. Came out great.

These are delicious and fluffy! My kids loved them too.
