Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes

These pancakes are kind of a classic in my family. Anytime anyone cooks breakfast at my parents' house (as opposed to pouring cereal or making smoothies in my dad's pride and joy--the Vita-Mix), it invariably includes these pancakes. They are superdelish, and provide an excellent way to rotate wheat berries and dried milk that some of you may have about a year's worth of. You start with whole wheat berries and use your blender to grind them up into the batter.

Put in the Blender:
1 Cup of wheat berries
1 1/4 cups of water
1/4 cup Dried milk
(Or of course you can use 1 1/4 cups of milk)

Blend for three minutes (I actually like to do it for about 2.5 min. so it's a little more coarse)
Then add:
1 egg
1 tbsp. honey/sugar
1 tbsp. oil
1/4 tsp salt

Blend to combine everything,
then add:
1 tbsp. Baking Powder
and pulse it a few times.
Then cook it like any other pancakes (I'm assuming you've done that before).
Adding blueberries or pecans on top of the pancakes before flipping them is highly recommended.

This is similar to the recipe that we've been having for pancakes lately. We actually had them for breakfast this morning. They are so good! I told my sister I was going to share the recipe with her, now I'm just going to send her to your site! Thanks for the recipe.
