Food Storage Recipes: Blender Wheat Pancakes

When Julie and I first started our food storage adventures we thought that buying a wheat grinder was very scary and expensive. I started out by grinding a bit of wheat using my friend’s WonderMill. But I really wanted to find other ways to use my wheat that didn’t involve grinding. So when I first saw Crystal’s amazing and gorgeous 4th of July pancakes made with wheat in a blender I was so excited to try it out. These Blender Wheat Pancakes are still a staple meal in my home even though I do in fact have a wheat grinder now.

My kids LOVE it when I make pancakes … especially for dinner! The other night we were having so much fun I snapped a few pics for you to see how food storage really can involve the whole family and be fun and delicious and healthy.

Blender Wheat Pancakes

1 Cup Milk (translation for powdered milk is 3 T. Milk and 1 C. Water)
1 Cup Wheat Kernels, whole & uncooked
2 Eggs (2 T. powdered eggs 1/4 C. Water)
2 tsp Baking Powder
1-1/2 tsp Salt
2 Tbs. Oil
2 Tbs. Honey or Sugar

Put milk and wheat kernels in blender. Blend on highest speed for 4 or 5 minutes or until batter is smooth. Add eggs, oil, baking powder, salt and honey or sugar to above batter. Blend on low. Pour out batter into pancakes from the actual blender jar (only one thing to wash!) onto a hot greased or Pam prepared griddle or large frying pan. Cook; flipping pancakes when bubbles pop and create holes.

    There are several different types of wheat, some with soft kernels, some with hard. You don’t specify which type you use; does this work well with both?

    • I used hard white wheat but it would work with different types.

    Delicious! Just made these for breakfast, I love that I don’t have to get out my grinder. I actually added some more sugar, some vanilla, and a splash of lemon juice. They are not fluffy like bisquick type pancakes, they are moist, nutty, and delicious! I wonder if you could start out bread dough this way, so you wouldn’t have to grind flour. Any opinions? The only trick would be figuring out the conversion from kernels to flour….hmmmm…

    • I think it depends on your blender. I know the Blendtec will allow you to get dough going in there!

    1 Tbsp baking powder

    Blend only long enough to combine. Cook on hot griddle. The batter is very thin.

    NEVER make a half batch. Doesn’t work well in the blender.

    We had these tonight for supper. Oh my! They are sooo good and easy….. This is a great first recipe to try using wheat kernels. It took no more time to fix – maybe less as I get used to the recipe. It took less effort since the blender does the work instead of me whisking by hand. And cleanup was easy. The taste is better but not so far off from pancake mix that you have to get accustom to the taste of these. It’s like homemade noodles vs. store-bought noodles. Store-bought are good and work fine but homemade is oh so much better tasting.

    Just made these for the first time, but made one modification.  I used half hard red wheat and half steel cut oat groats.  Delicious flavor – thin, but perfect pancakes.  My three picky children loved them.

  • I am new to this… could you tell me the difference btween wheats?? I have purchased both hard winter red wheat and hard winter white wheat. I have yet to use them and need some info on how to do so.

    When you say add kernels .. what actually do you mean? Also can I make wheatberries from my stock or is that something I need to buy separately?

    I am looking forward to beginning some wheat preparation this summer when I am off from work. Hoping you could enlighten me on what we are really using from the wheat and what kind when we cook. I would appreciate an article on wheat. Thanks!

    How many pancakes does this recipe make and how many adults would it serve? Thanks! I LOVE this website!

    • I think it made enough to feed 2 adults, 2 kids, and have some leftovers. I can’t remember exact numbers, sorry!

      My pancake batter made 6 very large pancakes. I had two problems with the batter – actually three….One, using a Vitamix Blender (which is really powerful) the batter turned into bread dough by 4 minutes. I had to add another cup of water and another 3 tablespoons of milk powder. Then the batter was fine and I had to let the mixture cool a bit before adding the eggs as the mixer actually “cooks” foods. So for people with a Vitamix, please do not go past one to two minutes, or do as I did and add another cup of water and three more tablespoons of powdered milk. Problem two: This is an altitude problem I’m sure. I live in San Antonio, Texas. I had to add two more teaspoons of baking powder to the batter because the pancakes were way too thin (and I love thin pancakes.) On to problem three: OK…for the salt. I used Kosher Salt and felt that 1 1/2 teaspoons was not enough and I added 1/2 teaspoon more. That was too much. If I had used 1 1/2 teaspoons of regular table salt, it would have been too salty. (You can double the amount of Kosher salt to = the amount in a recipe for table salt usually.) So I feel that 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of Kosher salt is the correct amount for us, but I would have ruined the batter with table salt.

      I was so pleased with this batter, and so excited using the wheat kernels. Whenever I use the wheat kernels I smile!

    I’m glad you had the recipe here. I’ve been looking for it. But when I cooked it tonight, I found there was way too much salt. I think it needs only 1/2 tsp, and not 1 1/2 tsps. I also added a ripe banana and cocoa. Very moist and delish!

    Thank you so much for the blender pancake recipe! They were yummy. But I was very surprised at the 1 1/2 tsp salt. Made the batter too salty. I'd suggest 1/2 tsp salt (what I normally put in pancakes)
