Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes

Many people, In order to follow the guidelines of preparedness, have a basement filled with wheat but no wheat grinder!  They figure that when a real crisis comes along, they can survive by soaking the wheat in the water that has been scooped out of the back of the toilet and just hang on until real help arrives!  After all, won't we all enjoy that if we're forced to eat it?   Well, for those of you who are waiting for a raise before you buy your wheat grinder, or for those who have a wheat grinder but don't get it out often to grind your wheat, or for those who just want to try a new and delicious recipe, I have something for you! 

Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes (Waffles)

In a blender, place 1 1/3 cups water, 1/3 cup powdered milk and 1 cup whole wheat kernels.  Blend for 2 minutes.  Nothing says "Time to wake up" better than wheat being ground in a blender!

While it's blending, place in a mixing bowl:
1 1/2 cups white flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt

Add to the blender:
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

Pour wheat mixture into dry ingredients.  Stir until smooth.  You may need to add more water to get it the right consistency.
Cook on a hot, sprayed griddle until golden.
Makes about 18 pancakes.

Forget the white flour.  Add the eggs, oil, baking powder, salt and sugar to the blender. Blend and add water until right consistency.   Pour from the blender onto your griddle.

You are just the smartest ever! I do have a grinder, blender and a crapload of wheat but no basement! I do have water suply so I won't be using the back of the toilet for my water ;)

I really feel like a bad Mormon. I don't think I even own a bak of wheat flour, let alone a grinder!

Hi Connie!
These are wonderful! I've made these a few times and they are always a hit. I serve them with peach-pit syrup and they get gobbled right up!!
And, you are right...'nothing does say--- time to wake up' like wheat being ground in the blender. Good to know that it's just not the fact that my blender is super loud.
Have a great day.... look for sunshine:)

I need to get my wheat grinder out and try some things with it. Like grinding wheat.

You are such a survivor. Can I come to your house when we run out of toilet water?

Tracy said...

Sounds delish!! I'll have to try them!!

Thanks for sharing!

Kimmie said...

As usual, you ALWAYS make me laugh..."Nothing says time to wake up better than wheat being ground in a blender". I always get my daily dose of laughter from you Connie. You are AWESOME!!

I have never hear of these or made these before. I am definitely going to try these out as....YES, we people that are into being prepared have MANY bags of wheat in our storage to use up.

These look and sound delicious. Thanks for sharing another great recipe!!

Hope your day is a wonderful one!

Natasha said...

Hope you have had a great week.

Best wishes,

Yvonne said...

Thanks--I will have to give them a try. I don't use my wheat often enough.

Jenny said...

I saw these made in an enrichment night, but have never made them. Now that we are really working on food storage, these are looking really yummy.

Heather said...

You are amazing! I never would have thought a blender could do that. I don't own any wheat because I don't have a grinder. I might have to try this. Thank you!

You make this sound so easy! Wow :) I have honestly never even thought about doing wheat on my own. I love Kamut Khorasan Wheat and it would be great to be able to "make" my own! The pancakes would be great!
