Savory Blueberry Pecan Cornmeal Pancakes

I want to live in LA because of this.

I think that might be a full grown mini-pig.  Which makes me realize that I should never get a mini-pig if they get that big.  Oh and the other reason I will never get a mini-pig is because I’m going to have a hard enough time convincing Andrew to get a dog…much less a mini-pig. 

So last Sunday Andrew told me he had his first wifely duty for me…which is ridiculous because I’m not even his wife yet.  I mean, I haven’t even picked out the caterer, tasted wedding cakes, thought about center pieces/linens, or gotten something borrowed or blue.  So I’m like worlds (or an entire 5 months) away from being able to be assigned ‘wifely duties.’

Regardless, he needed the front button sewn back onto his pants.  So I scrounged up a needle and thread and briefly considered Youtube-ing “how to sew a button back onto your future husbands’ kahkis”…but that sounded time consuming so I just decided to wing it.

Well the next day we met my parents + my older sister + her boyfriend for Gnocchi Night. I’ve mentioned Gnocchi Night before.  It’s this wonderful event at Piola where there is all-you-can-eat gnocchi.  There are like 10 different flavors of gnocchi (smoked salmon, pesto, 4 cheese, pancetta and rosemary, prosciutto and mushroom, bolognese and I can’t remember the others)…but the waiters walk around with bowls of each type and you just eat until your full.

Except you usually eat until your past full because that’s just what happens when men are walking around with bowls full of delicious gnocchi.  So Andrew was wearing the pants that I had just sewn the button back on to and I am happy to report that even after Gnocchi Night the freshly sewn on button didn’t pop off.

So wedding things…my mom and I met with a Wedding Coordinator of sorts.  She’s actually just a Day-of-the-event Coordinator.  The entire process was so stressful that we ended up having to get drinks after.  And then we went to Indian food.  Then everything didn’t seem so terrible.

But speaking of ‘terrible’…earlier that same day I tried on the most beautiful veil in the entire world and then our bridal consultant (aka extortionist) told us the price: $490.  For a piece of like fish netting?!  Okay, it was a couple steps above fish netting, but seriously, still insane.  We left the bridal store, went and met with the wedding planner woman and then had aforementioned drinks.  Since then my mom has found the exact veil (same designer, color, everything) online for $39.95.  Reediculous.  I’m never trusting anyone again.

Okay, about the above picture.  I hate, hate (in the most dramatic way possible) when people post pictures of runny yolks {disclaimer: except maybe these yolk pictures because they are just gorgeous}.  I think yolks are gross.  Not in a OMG-I-hate-saturated-fat type of way but in a that-picture-just-doesn’t-look-appetizing-at-all kind of way.  And then people tag the runny yolk picture with the word “#yolkporn”…and my skin crawls.  Seriously.  It’s like nails on a chalkboard just thinking about it.  Eww.

But here I am.  Posting egg yolk pictures.  That is because my love for pancakes is far greater than my hatred of egg yolk pictures.  So for the sake of cornmeal pancakes…I will suffer through these yolk pictures.

Savory Blueberry Pecan Cornmeal Pancakes

Yield: serves 1


3 tablespoons oat flour, packed

3 tablespoons yellow cornmeal

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

2-3 tablespoons milk (I used almond milk, original)

1 egg white

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey

1 tablespoon pecans, roughly chopped

1 heaping tablespoon blueberries


1 sunny-side-up cooked egg

1/4 small avocado, sliced



In a small bowl, combine oat flour, cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoon almond milk, egg white, lemon juice, and honey.

Set both bowls aside. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray or grease with coconut oil.

Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients and use a fork to quickly mix everything together. If not thin enough, add 1 additional tablespoons almond milk (should be slightly thicker than normal pancake batter). Fold pecans and blueberries into the batter. Scoop ~1/2 of the batter into the skillet. Cook ~5 minutes until cooked. Flip to other side and cook for additional 3 minutes. Make one more pancake out of the remaining batter. Top with avocado slices and egg.

  1. They’re gluten free, right? Oh wow they look amazing! I’ve been trying to find a gluten-free version of pancakes or SOMETHING to be a vehicle for delicious runny egg yolk and you’ve SO nailed it here! Excited to try it :)

  2. For a second there I thought that you were going to say that his button came off. I was thinking “Oh no!” Whew. Close one ;)

    I would stick with a dog for now. I’m not entirely sure what the zoning regulations are for having a pig in the house. Haha. That picture reminds me of county fair time when I’d see all of my friends walking their hogs, turkeys, cows, etc. around the fairgrounds. One of my favorite times of the year!

    • I need to put “seeing someone walk a turkey” onto my bucket list…hahaha I think that’d be just the funniest thing:)

  3. You could move almost anywhere and see someone walking a pig – including St. Louis, where my friend has an adorable pet pig named Calcifer.

  4. Firstly, Wow. These look beeeyond delicious. The blueberry avo combo is fab, ( I’ve made your blueberry macadamia guacamole dontch’ya know…except I replace the macadamias with marcona almonds, they’re my favourite).

    Secondly. It has been playing on my heart for a little while now so I’ve decided to let you know. I really really miss your participation in WIAW. ( Aahh, feels good getting that off my chest).
    BUT, I realise you’re busy. Interning, wife-to-be duties, and what not . So I understand.
    And following your wonderful insta account kinda helps too :D.

  5. This is basically perfect. I’ve been craving cornbread since the Superbowl and savory cornmeal pancakes? With blueberries, pecans, AND a runny egg and avocado on top? Wow.
    Hooray for great deals on veils! And so true–can’t trust anyone these days. A guy almost ripped my mom off by installing a lower grade AC unit than the one she payed for. But she’s sharper than any tool in the shed and caught it.
    Interestingggg that you don’t like yolk pictures! I can understand though. I’m glad that you still like eating them though ;)

  6. I love everything about your story and your meal. HA! I can’t believe you are getting married in 5 months – you’re probably the calmest bride I’ve ever seen (or you so a great job of portraying yourself as such here!). Anyway, I had blinis for the first time the other day and am now obsessed, and then I see this recipe for basically a blueberry version? Sign. Me. Up.

  8. Hey Kylie, I’m not sure if you read comments on old blogposts, but I give it a try ;) I’m writing a blogpost with links to savory recipes that I want to try out and I wonder if I could not only include a link to this recipe but one of your pictures as well? I will obviously state that that’s your picture! Please let me know, the post would go live tomorrow :) (p.s. I’m the same curlsnchard as on Instagram ;) )

    • Hey! Of course! Feel free to use the photo! Thanks:))

      also, I’m loving the look of those cinnamon rolls you’re making:) I think there needs to be some cinnamon roll making in the not too distant future!

  10. Ermahgurr…I made these this morning and now have to force myself not to make them again for dinner. I’m a sucker for anything cornbready, and these pancakes with the avocado this morning were amazeballs.
