My friend Tammy has a blender pancake recipe for Cranberry Oatmeal Pancakes on her site: Tammy’s Recipes. We’ve been enjoying that recipe since getting our Vita-Mix, and I’ve been wanting to tweak it to involve lemon, as lemons and cranberries just seem to go together in my mind! 🙂  So, here it is!

Lemon Cranberry Oatmeal Pancakes

1 1/4 cups milk
1 1/8 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 eggs
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest

Beat together in mixing bowl, cook on a frying pan. Make sure to stir before pouring new pancakes, as the cranberries drop to the bottom of the batter.

Blender pancake instructions: Blend up 3/4 cup wheat berries with the 1 1/4 cup milk for 2 minutes in a Vita-Mix or 4 minutes in a regular blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend just a little bit until all mixed. Pour into griddle (but remember the cranberries since to the bottom, so give it a little stir before each time!).
