Gluten-Free Pancakes with Blueberry-Honey Whip

Made with whole-grain sorghum flour and sweetened with coconut palm sugar, these gluten-free pancakes are thin and light while fulfilling true pancake decadence. The blueberry-honey used to flavor the whipped cream is easy to make, and will give you plenty to store in the fridge to use later on ice cream, cakes, or fruit!

  • 1 ½ cups honey
  • 1 ½ cups blueberries ripe or frozen
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4-5 strips of lemon zest removed with a vegetable peeler
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • ½ cup sorghum flour I use Bob's Red Mill brand
  • ½ cup gluten-free flour blend see note below*
  • 1 tablespoon organic coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

*Gluten-Free Flour Blend

  • 400 grams brown rice flour 3 ⅛ cups
  • 400 grams potato starch 3 ⅛ cups
  • 200 grams tapioca flour 1 ½ cups

Blueberry-honey whipped cream

  • 1 can unsweetened coconut milk full fat, refrigerated overnight
  • 4 tablespoons blueberry-honey less depending on your sweetness preference
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • The blueberry-honey will take longer to prepare than the pancakes, so starting with that first, add the blueberries, honey, lemon zest strips, water, and salt to a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring and mashing blueberries occasionally.
  • Set a coarse strainer over a bowl, pressing on the blueberries to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Allow liquid to cool to room temperature then transfer to a glass jar and store in the refrigerator. The honey can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 months.
  • For the pancakes, combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add wet ingredients to the mixture and stir until combined.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet to medium. Using a ¼ cup to ladle batter, pour onto skillet. Flip when the edges look cooked and the batter bubbles on top.
  • For the blueberry-honey whipped cream, open the can of coconut milk and scoop out firm waxy layer into a bowl (stop scooping when you hit water in bottom of can). Using a hand mixer, whip on low until coconut milk starts to thicken. Add blueberry-honey and vanilla extract. Mix on the medium setting until you get soft peaks.
  • Serve dollops of the blueberry-honey whipped cream on top of the pancakes. Enjoy!
