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.
