These Lemon & Blueberry Pancakes are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!
Seriously they are SOOOO easy and SO delicious!!! I’ve been wanting to share this delicious recipe with you for quite sometime! Upon developing this recipe, I was absolutely stoked with how light and fluffy they are! I doubt you will be disappointed!
You can substitute the couple of Tbsp of raw sugar with honey or coconut sugar, it may just change the batter to be slightly off white in colour, but the taste it still just as delicious!
Spelt flour can also be substituted for plain flour. As I’ve said in previous posts I use spelt flour in my kitchen as a straight swap for plain all purpose flour as it’s a more ancient form of wheat which has been less hybridised and is easier on the digestive system. In some cases those with wheat intolerances can tolerate spelt with it’s lower gluten content. It has a slightly nutty flavour and is a little more wholesome tasting!
You can basically use any berries like blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries etc.
Topped with my delicious Cashew Macadamia Cream and a drizzle of maple syrup there’s not much not to love!
We make these probably once a fortnight and they are a real hit in our home! I hope you enjoy them too!

Beautiful days with friends relaxing on their family farm, eating fluffy carrot cupcakes and sharing sweet memories.
These cupcakes came about like that! My friend had had all sorts of hassles with an oven not working, having to put the prepared batter in the fridge overnight and then trying to figure out how to fix them the next day so they would rise!
Well look what happened! The end result were the fluffiest, most moist and delicious cupcakes ever!
I came home and had this beautiful bunch of purple carrots starring at me in the fridge along with my beautiful local fresh market blueberries! The thought came! Do a twist on a traditional carrot cake muffin with sultanas and use blueberries instead and purple carrots for a deep purple colour!
The colour is fabulous when baked! A very deep colour with even richer blueberry purple coloured pops throughout! Yum!
The molasses can easily be replaced with another syrup sweetener, but the molasses does have a rich type flavour and is also very mineral rich.
I use an Avocado oil from Costco which is a beautiful neutral flavour and light in colour. After some research we have found out that it’s not produced with hexanes or other harmful chemicals etc so is great for making cakes or mayonnaises.
You can easily use orange carrots in the muffins instead of the purple ones. They are often available at my farmers market and thought this was a perfect use for them!
Enjoy these gorgeous muffins! I’m sure neither you or your kids will be disappointed!
