We put whole wheat kernels (or whole wheat berries) in a blender to make these super fluffy pancakes! That’s as 100% whole grain as you can get!
Blender Wheat Pancake Recipe with Kiwi and Bananas
If there ever were a food shortage, you are all welcome to come to my house to get some wheat! We bought over 300 lbs a few years back, and I think we’ll have enough for our family, plus the entire state of Utah! I don’t have my own wheat grinder, but I can borrow my mother in law’s when I need to make some flour, otherwise, we use whole wheat for three other reasons.
- We soak it for cereal
- We make my favorite wheat berry salad.
- We use it for Blender Pancakes!
Using the wheat to make pancakes in a blender is super easy, and the result is fluffy – amazing pancakes!
Step 1) Gather ingredients:
The ingredients: Wheat, Milk, Honey, Salt, Eggs, Baking Powder, and Oil
Step 2) Blend
Blend only 1 cup wheat kernels and 1 cup milk, on high, for several minutes, until batter is smooth
Add remaining ingredients and blend again, just for a few seconds, until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Step 3) Cook
I like to use a measuring cup, in order to make all the pancakes fairly similar in size, and I think the 1/4 cup is the perfect size! Sometimes we like mini, and in those cases, I’ll use a tablespoon.
Once your pancakes begin to bubble on top, they are ready to flip!

Hands down, my kids who likes pancakes more than life itself, asks for them on every birthday, and makes them most weekends is my 14 year old, Nate. He would eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
I like pancakes because they are a great vehicle for any fruit that is in season!
So, we added kiwi and bananas to these pancakes, and they were perfect! No need for syrup!
Whole wheat kernels are perfect for your food storage! They last longer and retain their nutrients better than ground whole wheat flour! So, next time you are at the store, grab some wheat and give these pancakes a try.
