Blender soaked pancakes 

Standard

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
