Blender Pancakes and Coconut Syrup

This post was last published in July of 2008.....I'd say it's time it took center stage again. It's really a great recipe. Enjoy!

I think these are quickly becoming our new favorite pancakes. Believe it or not after much searching and trying I finally took my Mom's tried and true old recipe and "healthified" it to our tastes and we have a Simple, Healthy, Tasty pancake recipe that the whole family loves! One of the things I like best about it is that I don't have to grind my wheat into flour first. I just put the whole grain right in the blender.

Blender Pancakes
1 cup rice or almond milk
3/4 cup whole kernel grain (I used hard white wheat, spelt or kamut )
Egg Replacer for 3 egg whites
1 Tablespoon Sucanat
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 Tablespoons coconut or olive oil
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder

Pour milk and wheat into blender. Liquify (on high with a regular blender on speed 3 or 4 with a high speed) for 4 minutes. Continue to run at a lower speed and while still running add the rest of ingredients. Add baking powder last and stop blender as soon as it is thoroughly mixed. Pour right onto hot griddle from blender cook and turn over to cook on other side just like any pancake.
NOTE: I usually double this but depending upon the size of your blender you may want to try it first cause it does foam up some once the baking powder is added. If it only takes up half your blender or less you know you can double it without any problems! Also Spelt and Kumut both work in this recipe for those who have wheat allergies.

When I was looking for a good blender pancake recipe I came across some coconut syrup on a blog. It sounded very yummy but of course I had to healthify it! We really like how it turned out though, very rich and Taaaasty! ;)  MmmMmmmm give it a try!

Coconut Syrup
7-8 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 drop natural butter flavor (optional)
3/4 cup rice milk mixed with 3/4 T. vinegar
1 cup Sucanat
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon coconut extract
Place oil, rice milk and Sucanat in a saucepan. Turn stove on to medium and stir until oil melts and Sucanat dissolves. Bring to a boil and boil one minute. Remove from heat and add soda and flavoring. It will bubble up; just continue to stir and give it a few minutes for the "fizz" to reduce before serving.

I made your pancakes with spelt this morning and they turned out great. I didn't have any egg replacer so I used applesauce and only 1 T oil and they were still perfect. My kids have suffered through many new recipes and they highly approved this one. Thank you so much!!

Tammie said...

Carla: Thanks for sharing! I have wanted to try them with Spelt! The applesauce ideat is great too! Thanks so much for sharing! I will be trying it!

I'm relatively new to your blog. Great job, by the way...on everything. Question on this post about the coconut syrup...We usually use lots of coconut milk (the lovely refrigerated kind in the 1/2 gallon) in our house instead of rice milk. Do you think it would make too big of a difference to use it instead of rice milk? Too thick? Just wondering before I make it. Thanks!

Tammie said...

Cox Famn Damily: Glad you like my blog! YES it would be wonderful! It will make it that much richer and thicker in fact I may have to try it! ;) For sure I think it will work just fine and be very good. Let me know how it turns out!

I tried the syrup today with my favorite healthy pancake recipe, and it was a big hit! I think maybe I didn't stir quite enough at first because the oil didn't really emulsify with the liquid, but the flavor was excellent. My kids are wanting coconut syrup all the time now. :~)

k, blender pancakes are a new one for me. When you say whole kernal wheat you are talking about not grinding the wheat first? just putting it right in the blender with the rice milk.....???

Tammie said...

Brianna: Yep that's exactly what I mean! No wheat grinder needed! Just add the whole kernels.
