Growing up, this pancake recipe is what my dad always made. The blender is the master tool. It is used to grind the wheat, mix the batter and pour the batter onto the griddle. These pancakes are easy, have minimal cleanup, and the wheat can’t be any more freshly ground than this!
1 ¼ cup milk (or 1/3 cup dry milk powder + 1 ¼ cup water)
1 cup uncooked whole wheat kernels
2 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp honey
½ tsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
BLEND: Blend milk and wheat in blender on high for 4-5 minutes or until smooth. Add rest of ingredients and blend on low just until thoroughly mixed.
COOK: Pour right out of blender onto a hot griddle. When bubbles appear on surface they are ready to flip.
TOP: Top with your favorite toppings keeping in mind that there are many delicious toppings that have more nutrients than simple syrup does. Our favorites are yogurt and fruit. Jam, applesauce & chopped nuts are other options. You can even have a pancake topping buffet!
