Easy Low Sodium Pancakes


Nothing says “weekend” like homemade blueberry pancakes. This recipe for low sodium pancakes is easy and requires only a few pantry ingredients. Making pancakes from scratch is so simple, you’ll wonder why you haven’t done it sooner!

The only ingredients that contain any sodium are eggs and milk. Everything else is sodium-free! This recipe should yield approximately 8-10 pancakes, which means each pancake will be less than 30 mg of sodium per cake. If you opt for some bigger pancakes, the individual sodium content will obviously increase but will still be minuscule compared to a boxed pancake mix.

Don’t want blueberries in your pancakes? Leave them out! This batter is excellent plain. But you could also add a different fruit like apples. Make this recipe your own.

You can use fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries, it doesn’t matter. If you opt for frozen, I would recommend letting them thaw a bit first. Then gently blot them with paper towels to absorb some of the extra water.

Yield: 8 pancakes

Making low sodium pancakes from scratch is so simple, you’ll wonder why you haven’t done it sooner!


  • 1 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of Hain Pure Foods Sodium Free Baking Powder
  • 1 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup of blueberries


  1. In a large mixing bowl, place your dry ingredients and whisk them together.
  2. Add your wet ingredients to a small bowl and stir until combined.
  3. Make a well in your dry ingredients and add your wet ingredients. Stir until everything is completely combined.
  4. Gently fold blueberries into batter.
  5. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan to medium heat and cook your pancakes until they are golden brown.


  • Enjoy with pure maple syrup. If it doesn't say "pure" on the bottle then it probably has ingredients you don't want. All you need is the sweet stuff directly from the tree!
  • If you are making breakfast for 1-3 people, you can use a regular griddle pan. But if you are cooking for a crowd, consider upgrading to a big electric griddle. It will help you crank out more pancakes in less time. This will help you prevent the first few pancakes from becoming cold pucks by the time you finish the last batch. I've provided links below to help you out.

  1. Thank you for this great no salt recipe because it’s a struggle to find packaged no salts foods for my 85 year old mom. Her doctor recently told her not to use salt anymore due right heart failure.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Monica! I’m glad this is a good resource for your mom. I’m going to continue to add more low salt recipes so I hope this will be a great tool for you. I wish your mom good health!

  2. Delicious and easy. I subbed rice milk for regular milk for even lower sodium.

    1. That’s a great idea JoAnn! I will have to try rice milk next time.
