Polenta Berry Pancakes

Pancakes are the perfect way to spend weekend mornings. Preferably still in bed with a strong cup of coffee or lounging outside in pajamas with a pretty view. Or as I ate mine this weekend, standing over the kitchen sink trying to shove in every last bite before having to run out after sleeping in 20 minutes too late. The wise decision would have been to postpone the pancakes, but once the idea hit, I couldn’t let it go. Pancakes were going to happen no matter what the cost. Luckily these pancakes were worth all the trouble and rushing around. Packed with polenta and fresh berries, they make a hearty and delicious twist on a traditional pancake. Imagine a pancake and a corn muffin had a beautiful baby.

    Could you sub the flour for almond flour to make them gluten-free?

      I haven’t tried it but I think it would work out great. Good idea for GF folks!

    These look amazing, and as someone reletivly new to cooking Polenta I can’t wait to try these out :) Only thing is I don’t have any buttermilk or means of getting any, can I substitute regular milk or will these not turn out the same? Also, if I did this would it affect the calories in it loads do you think? Hope to hear from you soon, LOVE this website – your recipes are great! Philia xXx

      Regular milk will work fine and as long as it is low-fat, it won’t affect the calories at all. Thanks!
