These simple blender pancakes are the answer to an easy Sunday morning. They are made with all natural, wholesome ingredients like oats to add in a punch of fiber.
I can't believe I've had my blog for this long and haven't made a pancake or waffle recipe yet! The waffle recipe will be coming this fall, but today I give you these blender pancakes!
The thing that I love the most about this recipe is that you can really just throw everything in a blender. No bowl required. It's so nice to wake up and be able to whip up a batch of simple blender pancakes without making a mess in the kitchen before 9am, amiright?!
Also one quick thing to note with these pancakes is that they must set up for at least 5 minutes before you pour them in a pan. Let the batter rest in the blender for 5-10 minutes before you cook them.
The oats do their job and absorb some of the liquid to make the pancakes puffy. Mmmm, pancakes.
Here we go! Below is a list of ingredients for blender pancakes...
- Baking powder
- Yogurt (I use greek, always)
- Almond milk
Fun Ways to Flavor
There is a reason why I named this blog post, simple blender pancakes. It's because they really are simple. They act like a blank canvas for your work of art to be shown upon.
Want to add some cinnamon and pumpkin for fall flavoring? Go for it! The sky is the limit, here is a list of alternative ways to flavor your blender pancakes.
- Lemon + Blueberry: Add some lemon zest and drop a few blueberries on each pancake, you won't be disappointed!
- Strawberry + Lemon: Same as above, but add some diced strawberries to the mix.
- Orange + Cardamom: If you happen to have cardamom in your spice cabinet, use it up, baby! Complete it with orange juice or zest.
- Chocolate chip + Zucchini: Drop some chocolate chips into the batter after blending along with shredded zucchini.
- Cinnamon + Cloves: Make it a cozy fall morning by adding in these spices to your blender pancake mix. I would suggest only adding ¼ tsp of cloves at first!
The Blender I use
I love my vitamix blender because it basically is indestructible. I would NOT recommend using a food processor for this recipe because you will end up with batter everywhere.
If you wanted to use a magic bullet/ninja, they would absolutely work! This recipe serves about 3-4 people depending on your hunger level and what else you pair with it. So double or half the recipe accordingly.
If you are using certified gluten free oats, then they are gluten free.
Absolutely! I made a large batch of blender pancakes with oats and froze some because Sean can't do eggs. When you are ready to eat them just pull them out of the freezer and pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Hope you love this recipe as much as I do! Please leave a star rating/review it helps me get noticed in this big internet world!
