Fluffy Blender Whole Wheat Pancakes

I wanted to try using my blender to make whole wheat pancakes, but I was disappointed with how runny the batter was. And since my stove top heating element is tilted, a runny batter was no bueno! So, I added things until it was thicker and the result was fluffy pancakes that helped my family get some of their whole grains for the day. Since it's 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white flour, this is a great way to introduce your family to whole wheat as well as a great way to use up your wheat in your food storage- no grinder needed! This recipe does require soaking the wheat overnight, so be sure to plan ahead!

Fluffy Blender Whole Wheat Pancakes

3/4 cup wheat
1 cup milk
1 Tbl honey
3 eggs, separated
3/4 cup flour
1 Tbl baking powder
1-1/2 tsp salt

In a bowl, cover wheat with water and refrigerate over night. In the morning, drain and blend softened wheat in a blender with milk for 4 minutes. Blend in honey. Add egg yolks and blend for 2 minutes. Add egg whites and bend another 2 minutes. Dump mixture into a bowl and add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Cook on a hot griddle until golden brown on each side.
