Easy, kids like 'em, Whole Wheat Pancakes

Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes
  • 2 cups low-fat milk
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat berries (or 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola or other flavorless oil, or melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. honey (or sugar)
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Butter and maple syrup, for serving

Place milk and wheat berries into a high-speed blender (such as a Blendtec, Vitamix, or Bosch). Blend for 2-4 minutes, or until the wheat berries are completely broken down. The mixture will be thick. Add the remaining ingredients and blend to combine.
Heat a griddle or non-stick skillet until very hot. Grease with melted butter or oil. Pour a small amount of batter onto the griddle or pan. Let cook for about 1 minute and flip with a thin metal spatula. Cook on remaining side for another minute or two. (The pancakes cook quickly because the batter is thin, and will be very light in texture. Each side should be golden brown. Adjust the heat as necessary.) Repeat with remaining batter
Yields 12-14, 6-8″ pancakes.
These were so easy to make.  My kids didn't care that they were wheat, because who really notices when sugary syrup is poured over top of them?
