I know I’m a little too excited about this, But I’ve never really cared for the traditional pancake. They were just too cake -like for me. Too soft and fluffy?! Has anyone actually ever made that complaint!?! I always liked waffles better; but not too crunchy. I like that this recipe has a bit of chew to it and its good for you! ! I’m sure it’d be great as waffles too!
These pancakes are made with whole, wheat berries! It seems easy enough to find a heritage organic variety. And since I don’t have a way to grind my own flour; this is awesome!!!
I saw a video done by Stacy @humoroushomemaking. (She blogs about homemaking.) She made the full recipe, including some cooking tips. She sent us over to visit http://www.melskitchencafe.com to find the recipe. The link to the original is HERE. I have gone ahead and tweaked mine with yogurt because I never have buttermilk on hand or the cows milk to make my own. So here is what I’ve done….
In the blender add…
- 1 cup wheat berries
- 1 cup yogurt (plain or flavored. Greek or otherwise)
Blend for 3 minutes. Add…
- 1/2 cup milk (any kind -I used vanilla almond milk)
Blend for 2 more minutes and then add…
- 2 lrg eggs
- 2 tsp. brown sugar (any sweetener should work)
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/8 cup of melted butter
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp ground flax
Blend till smooth.
Fry in oiled skillet as usual. Enjoy
