I was enjoying my Veteran's Day off at home with my girls and they wanted pancakes for breakfast. It isn't something we do often here, but today, their wish came true. This recipe turns out so fluffy and good. The girls (2 and 3) kept eating and eating them. (OK - so did I)
Whole Grain Blender Pancakes
You don't need a fancy blender for this recipe, nor do you need a grain grinder. Just put whole grains right in your blender with liquid (and other ingredients) and "Walla". Pancakes with the taste of freshly ground wheat (or other grain). Delicious. Place the following in your blender:
1 cup of whole grains
(wheat, buckwheat, brown rice, oats, include a tablespoon of flax if you have it, quinoa, barley, amaranth, kamut, millet - whatever you have or like, use it! Just use one cup total of whatever grains you like.)
1 cup of almond milk (or any kind of milk)
Blend on high speed for 2 full minutes (will take only 1 minute in your Blendtec blender)
3/4 more cup of milk and blend 2 more minutes
(depending on the type of grain you used, you may need a little more or less liquid)
2 eggs - best if organic, free range
1/3 cup olive or coconut oil
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. pure vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon & nutmeg each
1TBS. agave nectar (or honey)
Blend well. Can store in refrigerator over night.
Just before cooking, add: 1 TBS. baking powder - Blend in gently
Pour onto heated and greased griddle.
Options: Fold in 1/2 cup of blueberries before cooking and/or your favorite nuts. Or, top with sliced bananas and chopped walnuts. Or top with sliced strawberries and whipped topping. Try spreading on your favorite jam. These are delicious!You can use whole wheat flour as well. Use 1 1/2 cups of flour if pre-ground.
