I el-oh-vee-ee (that’s LOVE) blender pancakes. That’s right, blender pancakes. Do you know what I’m talking about? I’m talking about the number one way I use the many boxes of wheat I have stacked up in my closet. [Side Note: Why do I have boxes of wheat stacked in my closet? Because it is healthy, has a super long shelf life, and helps my family be self-reliant. You can read more about that here, if you want.] The basic idea is you throw whole wheat berries into your blender with some other ingredients, and whip up some pancake batter. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.
Some of my favorite things about blender pancakes:
- They are WHOLE wheat. Like, seriously. The whole wheat berry.
- They are quick.
- I only have to wash the blender and one skillet.
- The blender is perfect for pouring pancakes.
- My kids love em.
|Hello there, wheat.|
Then, add the rest of the ingredients (this is when the pumpkin comes in) and blend until everything is combined.
Finally, pour your batter onto a hot griddle or skillet right from the blender. I usually sprinkle a few mini chocolate chips onto the batter after I pour it into the skillet.
- Blend milk and wheat in blender for five minutes or until smooth.
- Add pumpkin, eggs, vanilla, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices. Blend until combined.
- Pour onto a greased griddle over medium heat. Sprinkle with chocolate chips, if desired. Cook until bubbles begin to pop. Flip pancake and cook for 1-2 minutes longer.
