  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. lime zest
  • 2/3 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract 
  • Butter, for pan and for serving
  • 1/2 cups blueberries, plus more for serving
  • Maple syrup, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. 
  2. In a medium bowl, mash avocado and lime juice with a fork until smooth. Whisk in honey, lime zest, and buttermilk. Add eggs and vanilla and whisk until fully combined. 
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until just combined. 
  4. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, melt a thin pat of butter to coat the bottom of the skillet. Ladle ¼ cup pancake batter into skillet, then use the bottom of the measuring cup to smooth batter into a 4 ½"-wide pancake. Top with a few blueberries if desired, then cook until bubbles start to form in batter and pancake is golden underneath, about 3 to 4 minutes. 
  5. Flip and cook the other side until golden, 3 to 4 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.
  6. Serve pancakes with butter, maple syrup, and more blueberries.
