Honey Cinnamon Blueberry Pancakes

These Honey Cinnamon Blueberry Pancakes are great for the weekend. You can whip them up in about 20-30 minutes and skip the brunch rush.

Brunch is great, but since when is a Bloody Mary and a couple pancakes worth $15? The hipster brunch trend has really killed its true purpose – to combine two meals and save money while eating unique and delicious food.

Let’s honor Brunch’s true purpose and eat some budget friendly and delicious pancakes.

It starts with a scratch made batter. Sounds intimating, but it’s quite easy. You only need flour, milk (I used almond milk), baking soda and egg(s) to start. From there, you choose your own adventure, and this might as well be Frodo’s trek to Mordor cause it’s an epic adventure.

For this batter, we’re adding cinnamon, honey and blueberries to crank up the flavor. Check out this unnecessary honey comb thing I used!

Once the batter is done, cooking the pancakes is simple. Start by coating a pan with butter and putting it over medium heat. Once it’s toasty and the butter is melted, add your batter. I usually make some large pancakes to minimize the cooking and maximize the eating of pancakes.

Here’s the cake right as it is added. It looks like raw batter. No surprise.

The key is to wait for the pancake to start bubbling. When the bubbles get large and even start popping, we’re ready to flip. See below:

Nothing to be seen here except for a beautiful golden pancake. Let it sit for another minute or two on the heat to finish cooking, and repeat with the rest of your batter.

Much better than $15 brunch.

And may I say something that might not seem economical? Buy real maple syrup. It makes a difference. Plus, you can use a little less since these pancakes are sweet on their own from the honey and blueberries.

Let’s get economical with these Honey Cinnamon Blueberry Pancakes:

  • 1 1/3 cups flour – $0.20
  • 2 tsp baking powder – $0.04
  • 2 tsp cinnamon $0.06
  • 1/2 tsp salt – $0.01
  • 1 1/3 cups milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk) – $0.50
  • 1 Egg – $0.33
  • 2 tbsp oil – $0.47
  • 1 tbsp honey – $0.15
  • 1 cup blueberries – $1.50

The grand total is $3.26. Add in some change for the maple syrup and coffee and we’ll round it out at about $3.50. Three large pancakes for less than 1/4 the cost of an overpriced brunch.

And even though they have “cake” in the name, these are actually pretty good for you.

  1. I make a pretty good pancake. I do it so often, that I have a dedicated piece of Tupperware with all the dry ingredients already mixed and ready to go, in the cupboard at all times. However, I’m not a big fan of maple syrup on pancakes. I was raised too close to Canada not to love maple syrup, but just not on pancakes. I love butter and jam on them. And sometimes butter and … Aunt Jemima. Yup. I love the texture of it.

    • Haha I’m going to honest I do not meet many people who do not like maple syrup. I love to take maple syrup and put a little bit in my hair when I’ve had a rough week. What do you think holds it up slick?

      ^If you have not seen Wedding Crashers, that will make no sense.

      Jam is definitely my emergency-I-don’t-have-maple-syrup pancake/waffle condiment of choice. Jam + Peanut Butter is great too.
