Introduction: Wheatberry Pancakes

My kids love pancakes, in particular this recipe that uses wheat-berries instead of flour.

Step 1: Get Blending

You'll need a pretty decent blender for this, like a Blendtec or Vitamix. There's others out there that will do the job too.

1 cup wheat-berries

1 1/2 cups milk

Blend at full speed until all the wheat berries are broken down. Mine takes about 30-40 seconds.

Step 2: Add the Rest of the Ingredients


2 eggs

2 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp oil

Pulse in the blender until mixed.

Leave for 5 minutes.

Step 3: Cook

Give the batter a little mix, the mixture tends to start separating and the blended wheat berries sink to the bottom.

Heat up a frying pan or griddle with a little oil.

Use about 1/4 cup for small pancakes or I use a ladle for larger pancakes.

I cooked both sizes this morning to please both children!

Cook for about 1 minute each side until bubbly and golden.

Step 4: Serve

Serve on their own or, as shown, with blueberries and agave nectar.

The sugar in the batter sweetens the pancakes enough so they don't need extra sugar or syrup but a little drizzle over the fruit looks pretty.
