Healthy Blender Pancakes


We were hungry for pancakes this morning, and I’ve been wanting to try Marilyn’s Blender Pancake recipe in her wonderful cookbook, Breakfasts for Busy Moms. We were not disappointed!  If you haven’t put your Bosch blender to the test yet, try it out with this recipe!  It’s AMAZING!  Put the ingredients into the blender (all except the baking powder and baking soda) and blend on high speed for 4 minutes.  Add the baking powder and soda and blend briefly.  Pour batter right from the blender onto a hot, lightly oiled griddle.  One recipe makes enough for 4 people, and it got “thumbs up” from the whole family!  I used 1 1/2 cups of a cracked 9-grain blend that I’ve had awhile, but a whole 7-grain blend would work great, as well as the combinations Marilyn suggests in the cookbook.  Even using just one whole or cracked grain, such as wheat, spelt, etc., would work just fine!   Wouldn’t it be interesting to try buckwheat as a gluten-free alternative?  I used buttermilk, but for those of you who are dairy-free, fruit juice would work as the liquid.   These healthy, hearty, yummy pancakes are a wonderful way to start the day.


1 3/4 cup buttermilk (or fruit juice)

1 egg

2 T. olive oil

1 t. vanilla

2 T. honey

1 t. salt

1/2 cup raw brown rice

1/2 cup pastry wheat or Kamut

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 t. baking soda

2 t. baking powder

Blend at high speed for 3-5 minutes, until smooth.  Then add

baking powder and soda and blend in briefly.

Pour batter onto hot, greased griddle and cook until bubbles on unbaked side

begin to break; turn once and cook on second side until done.


  1. I used 1/2 tsp baking soda and 2 tsp baking powder since the amounts weren’t listed. I added 1/4 c. flax meal at the end. Delicious!!!
