Our favorite pancakes and syrup

Blender Wheat Pancakes

This is a recipe from an old church cookbook. Makes 6-8 pancakes~we always at least double the recipe.
1 cup milk
1 cup uncooked wheat kernels
Put milk and wheat in blender. Blend on highest speed for 4-5 minutes or until batter is smooth. (note from Melissa here: don’t leave it on the counter blending while you run to the bathroom. You may hear a terrible crash and find wheat pancake batter on every inch of your kitchen counter, floors, and cabinets and spend the rest of the morning cleaning it up. Just stay close by.)

Add the following ingredients and blend on low:
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. oil
2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp. honey or sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Bake on hot griddle. (I use 1/4 c. of batter on a 300 degree griddle. Perfection!)
Waffle variation: Use above recipe and add on additional Tbs. of the wheat and increase oil to 4 Tbs. Bake in waffle iron until done.

Kelsey’s Yummy Syrup

(this is our favorite syrup ever from my sister, Kelsey. It pretty much cancels out anything healthy in the wheat pancakes, so we try to reserve it for special occasions…so it’s wicked and good at the same time.)
1 stick butter
½ c buttermilk(you can make your own by adding 1 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar with regular milk to make 1/2 cup)
1 c white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp baking soda
Bring butter, sugar, baking soda, and buttermilk to a boil for one minute. Turn off heat and then add vanilla. Syrup will bubble and become frothy because of the baking soda, but once it cools, it will go down and will be ready to serve. Freeze or refrigerate leftovers.

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Sounds good! You almost can't go wrong with pancakes in the morning. Have you ever used bisquick? I've found that to be the best recipe for my house.

  2. Oh good grief. I just drank a Slim Fast. I need pancakes!!!

  3. That made my tummy rumble! Soo good!! :D Thanks for sharing X

  4. They look delish! I truly enjoy reading your blog. Would you be able to do a post on your move? Where to get things needed,packing,pitfalls and so on. I'm moving soon and need some direction. Your help will be appreciated and I think interesting to all. All the best with your blog. Mel

  5. Yummy! Pancakes that are good for you--I need to try this!

    That syrup sounds amazing--and so different from anything I've ever had. But what's a "cube" of butter? Like 1 tablespoon, maybe?

  6. Think I might have to try these this weekend! THANKS for the recipe! I always love a new pancake recipe!!!

  7. 1 cube of butter equals 2 tbsp!

    Where do you buy the uncooked wheat kernels? I cant wait to try this recipe!

  8. Sorry! I mean to type 1 stick of real butter. Unwrap the whole darn thing and stick it in~I didn't say this was low in calories! ;)

  9. Keri~ You can usually buy them at a health food/natural food store, or buy them from local farm or grainery.

  10. I was wondering about wheat kernels too. This sounds really yummy Melissa! I was just telling my hubby I was craving pancakes. I've still been trying to lose the last bit of weight and have not had any for so long. I may have to make these sooner rather than later. Thanks for the recipes! :)

  11. Thank You! I think this is the Syrup recipe I've been looking for! I had it has a kid and never been able to find the recipe...all I knew is that it had butter and was so yummy! The pancakes looke yummy too! Can't wait to try them!

  12. Thanks! I'm always on a quest for ways to make pancakes healthier and to avoid syrups laden with high fructose corn syrup that my children seem to love. Have you thought of adding a print button for recipes?

  13. YUM! I'm going to definitely try these out! THANKS!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
