Lemon Cranberry Oatmeal Pancakes Wednesday, Oct 31 2012 

(I love my son’s expression: “Another picture, Mom??? I just wanna eat!” lol)

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!).

Multi-grain Pancakes Friday, Jul 1 2011 

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I made these pancakes. May I say I was very pleasantly surprised!! While cooking, these pancakes really fluff up nicely! They are not dense like I expected. We will definitely be making these again! Thanks, Iris, for a delicious recipe!


Multi-grain Pancakes

Stir together in bowl:
1 cup whole wheat flour/spelt*
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar (brown or white)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

2 eggs, beaten (just with fork or whisk)
2 cups buttermilk**
1/4 cup oil

Stir just until combined and fry.

* I used closer to 1 1/2 cups to get a bit of a thicker pancake, but also since I was using fresh-ground flour which isn’t as compact. Start with one cup of flour and add more as desired for the thickness you want!

** I used regular milk mixed with 2 Tbsp of vinegar.

These pancakes are our absolute favourite. They work super well with my fresh-ground wheat or spelt flours!


1 egg
1 1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 cup wheat (2 cups spelt flour)*
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
Beat together in mixing bowl, cook on a frying pan.
* Adjust flour amount depending on your preference for the thickness of the pancakes.
I made this recipe using powdered milk and powdered eggs, and filled a mason jar. I cut a circle piece of fabric to dress it up a bit (between the lid and ring of the jar), and tied the directions to the jar. Simple, pretty, homemade, yummy little gift! 🙂
