Blender Waffles or Pancakes

Blender Waffles or Pancakes

Amounts in (*) makes enough got Two People - (2-3 waffles)
Otherwise makes: Four (4-5 waffles) or 20-24 pancakes

Place in blender; blend at highest speed for 3 minutes:

(3/4) 1-1/2 – 1-3/4 cups buttermilk or kefir (or non-dairy alternative)
(1) 2 tbsp olive oil
(1/2) 1 tsp vanilla extract

(2/3) 1-1/2 cups brown rice or uncooked rolled oats
(or other grain variations, see below)
2/3 cup grain = 1 cup flour or 1-1/2 cups grain = 2 cups flour

The batter should always swirl about a vortex in the blender. If it doesn’t, slowly add more liquid until the hole reappears. This is the secret to light and tender waffles. Batter for pancakes may be thicker, but keep batter relatively thin and keep it churning.

Cover blender; let stand at room temperature overnight or 12-24 hours.

Preheat waffle iron at highest temperature, or griddle on medium high.

Just before baking, add and re-blend on highest speed for 1 minute:

1 egg, optional additional liquid (if batter needs thinning for vortex or churning)

Blend in thoroughly, but briefly (assisted with rubber spatula, if needed):

(1) 2 tsp baking powder
(1/4) 1/2 tsp baking soda
(1/2) 1 tsp salt, to taste

Pour batter onto hot waffle iron, sprayed with olive oil. Bake about 3-1/2 to 4 minutes in waffle iron until crispy.

Grain Variations:
Brown rice or millet – equal parts of each grain
Kamut, spelt, wheat - kamut is a favorite! Combining with kamut and oats is our favorite!
Buckwheat – reduce to 1 cup (4 servings). It expands.
Barley -hulled, not pearled. Reduce to 1 cup (for 4 servings). It expands
Quinoa - Thoroughly rinse quinoa in strainer the night before 1-2 minutes; let stand in bowl of water overnight; drain and rinse about 1 more minute. This removes bitter flavor. Batter will be very thin. Fill waffle iron almost completely to the edges.
Oats - uncooked rolled oats or oat groats
I use oats in combination with other grains. I use 1/2 cup (in recipe for 4) oats, and 1 cup kamut, or half and half in serving 2.

Other additions - throw in some flax seeds!
