Blender Pancakes

What you need: 

1/2 cup toasted oats (reg. will do as well)
1/2 spelt flour
1/2 corn meal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 1/2 cups vanilla soy milk
2 tablespoons apple sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
Optional:
1/2 cup nuts OR 1/2 fruit

What you do: 

In the blender, blend the oats until they are a flour (yes, you could just use oat flour if you have it on hand).
With blender off, add the rest of the ingredients, blend well.
LET STAND A FEW MINUTES.
(The batter will be runny, but once it sits for 5 minutes, it will thicken right up)
Add batter to hot skillet (I use cast iron with a bit of oil) 1/4 cup per cake, and flip over when the surface it all bubbles. Cook another few minutes, and enjoy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

i don't see why not! i use regular wheat flour instead of the spelt and it works like a dream

I'm thinking of trying this with quinoa flour instead of the spelt (cuz that's what's in my pantry).  Think it will work?

i made these again and they were good again. really let the batter sit for a while to thicken-- i waited a bit but the first couple pancakes were pretty thin compared to the later ones. i made some caramelized apples for the top.

These were good.  I used whole wheat pastry flour in place of the spelt, and added three tablespoons of peanut butter to the batter (there was a PB craving going on).  The pancakes had a dense texture, not fluffy at all.  Maybe next time I'd double the baking powder and see if that helps.  But overall, very tasty and so easy!

This was a really easy recipe, even with multiple flours. I used wheat for the spelt and coconut milk for the soy and flax for the apple sauce, all out of necessity, but the cornmeal and oats added a really nice texture.  Also, I added açaí puree and made a cranberry-strawberry-raspberry syrup for the holiday.  Great recipe!  I will make this again!

I did find letting it sit a bit over 10 minutes improved the texture greatly, as well.

these were pretty good. i liked that everything went in the blender--made the cleaning a snap. the corn meal was a new addition for me. will likely make again.

Thought I'd mention that these also make yummy waffles. Healthy and low fat.
