These Healthy Blueberry Pancakes with Quark & Wheatgerm are so easy to make you can enjoy them everyday – they make a great Sunday brunch item too!
This Healthy Blueberry Pancakes with Quark and Wheatgerm recipe came about as a result of a conversation with a friend the other day. She told me her two boys love blueberry pancakes but she is struggling to find a reliable, healthy pancake recipe.

I hope this recipe is what she is looking for. It has no added sugar and is very low in fat (quark is actually fat free). I’ve also used semi-skimmed (low fat) milk. Another healthy ingredient I used is wheatgerm, which is rich in folic acid and Vitamin E. It has a very mild slightly nutty flavour which makes it ideal to incorporate into all sorts of bakes including muffins, crumbles, cakes, breads as well as pancakes. (I’ve also used wheatgerm in this healthy banana french toast bake and peanut butter thumbprint cookies).
How to make healthy blueberry pancakes with quark
This is a pretty straightforward recipe and making the batter is a breeze! Start by combining the flour, baking powder and wheatgerm. In another large bowl whisk together the eggs with guark until smooth. Pour in the milk and combine. Then whisk in the flour mixture until well combined. Lastly fold in the blueberries and make the pancakes.
There is no need to use an electric mixer and the pancakes are ready in minutes. Once the batter is ready it is important to cook the pancakes straight away to prevent the blueberries from thawing.
Fry the pancakes over a fairly low heat (so they cook inside without getting brown and crispy too quickly) for about 1.5-2 minutes on each side. Enjoy!
