WHOLE WHEAT BLENDER PANCAKES — Made with whole wheat flour, these healthier pancakes are easy to whip up in your blender, and come out light and fluffy every time!
While I love the idea of serving my family whole wheat pancakes for breakfast, it’s been hard to find a recipe we all enjoyed, until these Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes came along.
I don’t know if it’s the blender that makes the difference, but these whole wheat pancakes come out light and fluffy, rather than dense and heavy, like so many whole wheat recipes do.
And I love the fact that the blender does all the work of mixing the batter for me. The trick is to blend the milk and whole wheat flour for several minutes before adding the remaining ingredients.
We love these pancakes almost as much as our favorite fluffy pancake recipe, and this has become our go-to recipe when we want to enjoy a slightly healthier pancake.
For an even fluffier version of these pancakes, you can always use half all-purpose and half whole wheat flour. But the pancakes turn out so delicious with all wheat flour that we’ve never felt the need to adapt the recipe at all.
Of course, if you top these pancakes with whipped cream and fruity syrup like my boys usually do, they become significantly less healthy.
Fresh fruit, real maple syrup, and nut butters are somewhat healthier topping choices. But pancakes are kind of an indulgent breakfast either way, so to for the sugary sweet stuff if that’s what you’re in the mood for!
If you want to add mix-ins, like blueberries or chocolate chips, be sure to stir them in by hand once you’ve finished blending. Obviously you don’t want your mix-ins getting blended right into the batter.
Just a note: these pancakes do take a bit longer to cook through than regular pancakes. Be sure and wait to flip them until you see bubbles forming on the surface of the pancake.
We’ve tried a lot of whole wheat pancake recipes, and these Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes are by far our favorite. Hope you love them as much as we do!
